FTO Obesity Variant Circuitry and Adipocyte Browning in Humans.
Macedonia. In N Engl J Med, Oct 2015
The rs1421085 T-to-C single-nucleotide variant disrupts a conserved motif for the ARID5B repressor, which leads to derepression of a potent preadipocyte enhancer and a doubling of IRX3 and IRX5 expression during early adipocyte differentiation.
HPV status-independent association of alcohol and tobacco exposure or prior radiation therapy with promoter methylation of FUSSEL18, EBF3, IRX1, and SEPT9, but not SLC5A8, in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas.
Cleveland, United States. In Genes Chromosomes Cancer, 2010
Results verify IRX1, EBF3, SLC5A8, SEPT9, and FUSSEL18 as valid methylation markers in two separate sets of HNSCC specimens; also preliminarily show a trend between HPV16 positivity and target gene hypermethylation of IRX1, EBF3, SLC5A8, and SEPT9.
