26588701 GLI1 and GLI2, but not GLI3 are involved in the regulation of SOX18 gene expression in cervical carcinoma cell lines.
26573263 The downregulation of SOX18 was found to significantly inhibit cell adhesion and invasion.
26396173 NKD2 inhibits SOX18 and MMP-2,7,9 expression and suppresses BGC823 cell xenograft growth. NKD2 methylation may serve as a poor prognostic and chemo-sensitive marker in human gastric cancer. NKD2 impedes gastric cancer metastasis by inhibiting SOX18.
26151573 we demonstrated that upregulation of SOX18 was associated with a poor outcome in hepatocellular carcinoma patients
26148450 The genetic finding of a pathogenic SOX18 mutation enabled the diagnosis of the rare hypotrichosis-lymphedema-telangiectasia syndrome in our patient.
25310193 SOX18 may be involved in the progression of Non small cell lung cancer.
24697860 A new, autosomal dominant condition combining hypotrichosis-lymphedema-telangiectasia syndrome with renal defects is associated with a novel truncating mutation in the SOX18 gene.
24460943 SOX18wt has potent trans-activation proper- ties, while SOX18DN displayed dominant-negative effect.
24269235 The repression of Sox18 and its target genes may lead to altered formation of vessels in inflamed settings.
24065215 Data suggest that SOX18 transcription factor expression may serve as a marker for a poor prognosis in invasive ductal breast carcinoma.
22292085 The identification of MMP7 as a direct SOX18 target gene as well as other potential candidates including guidance molecules provides a molecular basis for the proposed function of this transcription factor in the regulation of vessel formation.
22018271 Heterogeneous methylation in the promoter region of SOX18 was associated with cancer progression in non-small cell lung cancer.
21796627 of the 679 gastric cancer cases, 177 (26.1%) were positive for SOX 18 expression in their tumor stroma, and the frequencies of both lymphovascular invasion and lymph node metastases were higher in the SOX 18 positive than in the negative group.

18496767 Transcription factors Sp3, ZBP-89 and NF-Y are capable of binding to the SOX18 promoter region.
18065521 an obligatory role for SOX-18 in the regulation of claudin-5 gene expression in an endothelial-specific and cell density-dependent manner is established
16882943 Overexpression of wild-type SOX18 promoted capillary tube formation of HUVECs in vitro, whereas expression of dominant-negative SOX18 impaired tube formation of HUVECs and the migration of MCF-7 cells via the disruption of the actin cytoskeleton.
16179596 SOX18 is involved in vascular cell growth and this transcription factor may play a role in atherosclerosis
12740761 Mutations in SOX18 underlie recessive and dominat forms of hypertrichosis-lymphedema- telangiectasis/
