24614704 With a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 97% in the detection of central nervous system (CNS) germinomas, UTF1 serves as a new reliable alternative in the diagnostic setting of CNS germ cell tumours.
23536577 UTF1 attenuates cell proliferation and is inactivated in cervical carcinogenesis through epigenetic modification.
23101626 Utf1 couples the core pluripotency factors with Myc and PRC2 networks to promote the pluripotency and proliferation of embryonic stem cells.
22880087 These findings strongly suggest that UTF1 promoter methylation profile might be a useful biomarker for cervical cancer diagnosis.
21446939 role for UTF1 in differentiation of matrix cells of the shaft as well as in suprabasal keratinocytes.
20855642 Strong UTF1 staining can be used for diagnosing embryonal carcinoma and seminoma. UTF1 expression in spermatogonia suggests its possible role in spermatogenesis and renewal of spermatogonia.
20218897 Single SNPs did not alter the chromatin association and mobility of hUTF1; however, the double mutant, G73R/L275M, demonstrated a decreased chromatin association, indicating a degree of protein malfunction.
19393592 Human UTF1 is a tightly DNA-associated protein with transcriptional repressor activity.
18983962 enhances reprogramming efficiency of pluripotent stem cells generation induced from human adult fibroblasts
18281244 The expression pattern indicated that UTF-1 plays a possible role in spermatogonial self-renewal
