Emerging role of PLAG1 as a regulator of growth and reproduction.
Huddinge, Sweden. In J Endocrinol, Feb 2016
Pleomorphic adenoma gene 1 (PLAG1) belongs to the PLAG family of zinc finger transcription factors along with PLAG-like 1 and PLAG-like 2. The PLAG1 gene is best known as an oncogene associated with certain types of cancer, most notably pleomorphic adenomas of the salivary gland.
PLAG1 and NCAPG-LCORL in livestock.
Fukushima, Japan. In Anim Sci J, Sep 2015
PLAG1 and/or NCAPG-LCORL, both of which are known as a locus for adult human height, have been detected for association with body weight/height in cattle and horses, and for selective sweep in dogs and pigs.
Landscape of gene fusions in epithelial cancers: seq and ye shall find.
Ann Arbor, United States. In Genome Med, 2014
Tumor-specific gene fusions can serve as diagnostic biomarkers or help define molecular subtypes of tumors; for example, gene fusions involving oncogenes such as ERG, ETV1, TFE3, NUT, POU5F1, NFIB, PLAG1, and PAX8 are diagnostically useful.
