24813944 A hydrogen bond between the hydroxyl group of 5hmC and UHRF2-SRA is critical for their preferential binding.
24573556 UHRF2 may contribute to the progression of colon carcinogenesis and function as a novel prognostic indicator after curative operation
23833190 UHRF2 is a transcriptional target of E2F, that it directly interacts with E2F1.
23537643 UHRF2, the homolog of UHRF1, interacts with N-methylpurine DNA glycosylase (MPG) in cancer cells.
23404503 UHRF2, a ubiquitin E3 ligase, acts as a small ubiquitin-like modifier E3 ligase for zinc finger protein 131
23244124 Low UHRF2 mRNA expression is associated with malignant glioma.
22673569 NIRF may contribute to the coupling between the cell cycle network and the epigenetic landscape
22072112 In the present study, ubiquitin ligase, NIRF, binds to hepatitis B virus core protein and leads to the proteasome-mediated degradation of hepatitis B virus core protein in vivo.
22018986 NIRF is frequently upregulated in colorectal cancer and its oncogenicity can be suppressed by let-7a microRNA.
21952639 NIRF is immediately adjacent to the single nucleotide polymorphism rs719725, which is reportedly associated with the risk of colorectal cancer.
21598301 the cooperative interplay of Uhrf2 domains may contribute to a tighter epigenetic control of gene expression in differentiated cells
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19818775 Growth-inhibitory effect of let-7a on the A549 cells in vitro and in vivo may be explained in part by le-7a-induced suppression of NIRF and elevation of p21(WAF1).
19218238 UHRF-2 is an essential molecule for nuclear pQ degradation as a component of nuclear PQC machinery in mammalian cells
15178429 may participate in the G1/S transition regulation
15178429 Overexpression of NIRF induces cell cycle arrest at G1 phase. NIRF binds to the cyclin E-Cdk2 complex in vivo, and is phosphorylated by Cdk2 in vitro.
14741369 NIRF has ubiquitination activity, the hallmark of a ubiquitin ligase. PCNP was readily ubiquitinated in 293 and COS-7 cells, and NIRF ubiquitinated PCNP in vitro as well as in vivo.
14741369 NIRF is a ubiquitin ligase that is capable of ubiquitinating PCNP (PEST-containing nuclear protein).
