24866402 The rare coding variant might not play an important role in AD risk in mainland China.
24415873 UNC5C mutations are very rare in familial and sporadic colorectal carcinomas.
23178624 TNM stage 1 hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) presented UNC5C methylation, indicating that the UNC5C gene has been methylated from the early stages of HCC.
22685302 knockdown of DSCAM inhibits netrin-induced tyrosine phosphorylation of UNC5C and Fyn as well as the interaction of UNC5C with Fyn. The double knockdown of both receptors abolishes the induction of Fyn tyrosine phosphorylation by netrin-1
21893118 Inherited mutations in UNC5C prevent apoptosis and increase risk of colorectal cancer.
21600761 UNC5C acts as a tumour suppressor in RCC and is down-regulated in RCC. Loss of heterozygosity and DNA methylation contribute to the inactivation of UNC5C in renal cell carcinoma.

19331160 UNC5C might act as a tumor suppressor and UNC5C methylation might present a malignant potential in colorectal cancer.
19242752 Aberrant methylation of the netrin-1 receptor genes UNC5C and DCC detected in advanced colorectal cancer.
18628988 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-gene interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
18054557 study provides evidence that most colorectal cancers have alterations in both UNC5C and DCC netrin receptors; while UNC5C expression is regulated primarily via epigenetic regulation, DCC defects are mediated through allelic deletions
17967459 The loss of UNC5C expression observed in human colorectal cancer is a selective advantage for tumor progression
16371650 Data suggest a model in which netrin stimulates UNC5 tyrosine phosphorylation and signaling in a manner dependent on the co-receptor DCC, through the recruitment of Src and FAK kinases.
15574733 Netrin binds through multiple domains to both DCC and Unc5c. in Caenorhabditis elegans indicate that both netrin binding and nonbinding domains are necessary for phenotypic rescue of an unc-5 loss of function mutation.
12655055 may represent tumor suppressor that inhibit tumor extension outside the region of netrin-1 availability by inducing apoptosis
