Homeobox B8

Hoxb8, Hox-2.4
This gene is a member of the Antp homeobox family and encodes a nuclear protein with a homeobox DNA-binding domain. It is included in a cluster of homeobox B genes located on chromosome 17. The encoded protein functions as a sequence-specific transcription factor that is involved in development. Increased expression of this gene is associated with colorectal cancer. Mice that have had the murine ortholog of this gene knocked out exhibit an excessive pathologic grooming behavior. This behavior is similar to the behavior of humans suffering from the obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorder trichotillomania. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

In addition, HoxB8, a known miR196a target gene, is up-regulated in the HPV16 cervical carcinoma cell line but not in HPV18 cervical cancer cell lines.
ATRA and As₂O₃ regulate differentiation of human hematopoietic stem cells into granulocyte progenitor via alteration of HoxB8 expression.
Xu et al., China. In Eur Rev Med Pharmacol Sci, 2014
OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the effect of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) and/or arsenic trioxide (As2O3) on homeobox B8 (HOXB8) mRNA and protein expressions during the differentiation and proliferation of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to colony forming unit-granulocyte (CFU-G) in order to explore the pathogenesis of leukemia mediated by HOXB8 at mRNA and protein level.
Characterization of spinal cord glial cells in a model of hindlimb unloading in mice.
Islamov et al., Kazan', Russia. In Neuroscience, 2014
In control mice, homeobox protein HoxB8 (HoxB8+) cells were found only in the CC; in contrast, HoxB8+ cells were observed in all studied areas in HUM mice, with the greatest number found in the CC.
Interleukin-3-mediated regulation of β-catenin in myeloid transformation and acute myeloid leukemia.
D'Andrea et al., Adelaide, Australia. In J Leukoc Biol, 2014
In a murine model of HoxB8 and IL-3 cooperation, we show that β-catenin protein levels are modulated by IL-3 and that Cre-induced deletion of β-catenin abolishes IL-3-dependent growth and colony formation.
FMRP regulates miR196a-mediated repression of HOXB8 via interaction with the AGO2 MID domain.
Zhang et al., Shenzhen, China. In Mol Biosyst, 2014
In this research, we find that HOXB8 mRNA is a target of FMRP associated with miR-196a-induced silencing, and discover that phosphorylation of FMRP promotes the miR-196a-mediated repression of HOXB8 without affecting the interaction between FMRP and mRNA.
Establishment of a predictive genetic model for estimating chemotherapy sensitivity of colorectal cancer with synchronous liver metastasis.
Huang et al., Fuzhou, China. In Cancer Biother Radiopharm, 2013
Seven candidate genes (NKX2-3, FXYD6, TGFB1I1, ACTG2, ANPEP, HOXB8, and KLK11), which exhibited positive or negative correlations, were incorporated into a genetic model, with an overall accurate predication rate of 93.3%.
Microarray expression profiling identifies genes with altered expression in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis.

Most notably, gene ontology and pathway analysis identified homeobox genes (HOXA2, HOXA3, HOXA4, HOXA5, HOXA9, HOXB7, HOXB8, HOXC8, and IRX2) that were down-regulated in the gluteal depot in both sexes (P = 2 × 10(-10)).
Hematopoietic origin of pathological grooming in Hoxb8 mutant mice.
Capecchi et al., Salt Lake City, United States. In Cell, 2010
Mouse Hoxb8 mutants show unexpected behavior manifested by compulsive grooming and hair removal further, transplantation of wild-type bone marrow into Hoxb8 mutant mice rescues their pathological phenotype.
Loss of Hoxb8 alters spinal dorsal laminae and sensory responses in mice.
Deschamps et al., Rotterdam, Netherlands. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2008
A lower number of neurons in the upper spinal laminae and neuronal disorganization in the dorsal horn underlie the sensory defects including the excessive grooming of the Hoxb8 mutant.
