Gene RIF (10)

26434806 this study have identified a Squalene Monooxygenase region integrally associated with the endoplasmic reticulum membrane that is likely to interact with cholesterol or respond to cholesterol-induced membrane effects.
25787749 overexpression of SQLE in HCC cells promoted cell proliferation and migration, while downregulation of SQLE inhibited the tumorigenicity of Hepatocellular carcinoma cells in vitro and in vivo.
24840124 Data suggest that unsaturated fatty acids (oleate; oleoyl-CoA) stabilize SM/SQLE (which catalyzes 1st oxygenation step in cholesterol synthesis) most likely via inhibition of poly-ubiquitination by MARCH6 (membrane-associated ring finger [C3HC4] 6).
24449766 MARCH6 and squalene monooxygenase (SM) physically interact, and consistent with MARCH6 acting as an E3 ligase, its overexpression reduces SM abundance in a RING-dependent manner.

19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18728668 Distant metastasis-free survival in stage I/II breast cancer cases was significantly inversely related to SQLE mRNA in multivariate Cox analysis in two independent patient cohorts of 160 patients each
18660489 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
17316888 A cDNA library consisting of 220 upregulated genes in tumour tissue was established and named as LSCC. Differential expression was confirmed in five of these genes, including IGFBP5, SQLE, RAP2B, CLDN1, and TBL1XR1.
12083769 functional promotor regions involved in transcription was determined
