SIX homeobox 3

Six3, Six6
This gene encodes a member of the sine oculis homeobox transcription factor family. The encoded protein plays a role in eye development. Mutations in this gene have been associated with holoprosencephaly type 2. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009] (from NCBI)

A Genetic Variant in TGFBR3-CDC7 Is Associated with Visual Field Progression in Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma Patients from Singapore.
Vithana et al., Singapore, Singapore. In Ophthalmology, 31 Dec 2015
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and their proxies from 10 POAG-associated loci (CAV1-CAV2, CDKN2B-AS1, SIX1-SIX6, an intergenic region on chromosome 8q22, ABCA1, GAS7, AFAP1, GMDS, PMM2, and TGFBR3-CDC7) identified from genome-wide association studies were tested for association with VF progression using logistic regression with an additive genetic model adjusting for age, gender, average intraocular pressure (IOP), central corneal thickness (CCT), and baseline vertical cup-to-disc ratio (VCDR).
P16INK4a Upregulation Mediated by SIX6 Defines Retinal Ganglion Cell Pathogenesis in Glaucoma.
Zhang et al., San Diego, United States. In Mol Cell, Oct 2015
Here, we demonstrate that the genetic effect of the SIX6 risk variant (rs33912345, His141Asn) is enhanced by another major POAG risk gene, p16INK4a (cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor 2A, isoform INK4a).
Array CGH Analysis of Paired Blood and Tumor Samples from Patients with Sporadic Wilms Tumor.
Martínez-Glez et al., Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In Plos One, 2014
Candidate genes included in these regions might be constitutively (SIX3, SALL4) or somatically (NEK1, PIAS4, BMP2) operational in the development and progression of WT.
Posterior eyespots in larval chitons have a molecular identity similar to anterior cerebral eyes in other bilaterians.
Hausen et al., Bergen, Norway. In Evodevo, 2014
Notably, all photoreceptors, even the posterior ones, further express clear anterior markers such as foxq2, irx, otx, and six3/6 (only the latter absent in the most posterior photoreceptors), which play important roles in the early patterning of the anterior neurogenic area throughout the animal kingdom.
The effector repertoire of Fusarium oxysporum determines the tomato xylem proteome composition following infection.
Takken et al., Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Front Plant Sci, 2014
Of these, Six1 (Avr3), Six3 (Avr2), Six5, and Six6 are required for full virulence, denoting them as effectors.
An Updated Review on the Genetics of Primary Open Angle Glaucoma.
Chalam et al., Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. In Int J Mol Sci, 2014
Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at different loci including CAV1/CAV2, TMCO1, CDKN2B-AS1, CDC7-TGFBR3, SIX1/SIX6, GAS7 and ATOH7 to be associated with POAG and its related quantitative traits (endophenotypes).
Exploring DNA methylation changes in promoter, intragenic, and intergenic regions as early and late events in breast cancer formation.
Ehrlich et al., Chicago, United States. In Bmc Cancer, 2014
The DNA regions studied were promoters (BRCA1, CD44, ESR1, GSTM2, GSTP1, MAGEA1, MSI1, NFE2L3, RASSF1A, RUNX3, SIX3 and TFF1), far-upstream regions (EN1, PAX3, PITX2, and SGK1), introns (APC, EGFR, LHX2, RFX1 and SOX9) and the LINE-1 and satellite 2 DNA repeats.
Transcriptional profiles of pilocytic astrocytoma are related to their three different locations, but not to radiological tumor features.
Zakrzewska et al., Łódź, Poland. In Bmc Cancer, 2014
The most prominent differences were noted for IRX2, PAX3, CXCL14, LHX2, SIX6, CNTN1 and SIX1 genes expression even within different compartments of the supratentorial region.
Evolution and development of the adelphophagic, intracapsular Schmidt's larva of the nemertean Lineus ruber.
Hejnol et al., Bergen, Norway. In Evodevo, 2014
The expression of evolutionarily conserved anterior (foxQ2, six3/6, gsc, otx), endomesodermal (foxA, GATA456-a, twi-a) and posterior (evx, cdx) markers demonstrate that the juvenile retains the molecular patterning of the Schmidt's larva.
Transdifferentiation of periodontal ligament-derived stem cells into retinal ganglion-like cells and its microRNA signature.
Pang et al., Hong Kong, Hong Kong. In Sci Rep, 2014
The differentiated PDLSCs demonstrated the characteristics of functional neurons as they expressed neuronal and retinal ganglion cell markers (ATOH7, POU4F2, β-III tubulin, MAP2, TAU, NEUROD1 and SIX3), formed synapses and showed glutamate-induced calcium responses as well as spontaneous electrical activities.
Genome-wide meta-analyses of multiancestry cohorts identify multiple new susceptibility loci for refractive error and myopia.
Hammond et al., Rotterdam, Netherlands. In Nat Genet, 2013
The new loci include candidate genes with functions in neurotransmission (GRIA4), ion transport (KCNQ5), retinoic acid metabolism (RDH5), extracellular matrix remodeling (LAMA2 and BMP2) and eye development (SIX6 and PRSS56).
Six3 cooperates with Hedgehog signaling to specify ventral telencephalon by promoting early expression of Foxg1a and repressing Wnt signaling.
Inbal et al., Nashville, United States. In Development, 2012
data find that Six3 promotes ventral telencephalic fates through transient regulation of foxg1a expression and repression of the Wnt/beta-catenin pathway.
Dual transcriptional activities of SIX proteins define their roles in normal and ectopic eye development.
Kumar et al., Bloomington, United States. In Development, 2012
Data suggest that during early phases of eye development, So and Optix function, in part, to repress the transcription of non-retinal selector genes, thereby allowing induction of the retina to proceed.
Six3 is required for ependymal cell maturation.
Oliver et al., Memphis, United States. In Development, 2011
It was shown that Six3 is necessary for ependymal cell maturation during postnatal stages of brain development. In its absence, ependymal cells fail to suppress radial glia characteristics.
