26139146 Significant associations between single nucleotide polymorphisms in TOX, CDKN2A/B and type 2 diabetes meillitus.
26125895 The SLC2A9 (rs7660895) and TOX (rs11777927) gene polymorphisms may be associated with formation of intracranial aneurysms, and rs7660895 may be associated with intracranial aneurysms rupture.
25548321 High TOX transcript levels correlate with increased cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
25216799 TOX may be a specific marker for tumour cells in some types of cutaneous lymphoma.
23415668 SNP rs2726600 is located in a transcription-factor binding site in the 3' region of TOX.
22496870 Compared with TOX4, expression of TOX1, TOX2 and TOX3 in normal lung was 25, 44, and 88%lower, respectively, supporting the premise that reduced promoter activity confers increased susceptibility to methylation during lung carcinogenesis.
21126536 results suggest that TOX is required for IL-15-mediated natural killer (NK) cell differentiation and affected expression of T-bet that plays critical roles in NK differentiation and maturation
