Noninvasive lung cancer diagnosis by detection of GATA6 and NKX2-1 isoforms in exhaled breath condensate.
That first gene basically says, "I'm a lung cell." The researchers built a reporter gene that glowed green when the stem cells first expressed Nkx2-1. They engineered the same gene into human cells.
FOXE1 is an 373 amino acid protein (38 kDa) that contains a forkhead winged helix DNA binding domain and a polyalanine (polyAla) tract of variable length (11-19 Ala, but 14-Ala is most abundant) and negatively regulates thyroglobulin (TG) and Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) expression, which regulates, in conjunction with NKX2-1 (Homeobox protein or TTF-1), PAX8, and HHEX, thyroid differentiation and function [9,17].
Additional expression of NK2 homeobox 1 (NKX2-1) and ISL LIM homeobox 1 (ISL1) is associated with the development of forebrain cholinergic neurons and coexpression of p75 receptor demonstrated the presence of BFCNs.
Kras(G12D) and Nkx2-1 haploinsufficiency induce mucinous adenocarcinoma of the lung.
(70) The same principle could be applied to Ciona embryos, because Nkx2-1 (formerly called Titf1 or Ttf1), which begins to be expressed specifically in the endodermal lineage at the 64-cell stage, (71,72) is under the control of FGF signaling in Ciona.
Among them was the NKX2-1 (alternative name TTF-1) gene, which is known as an ADC-specific marker, and the LMO3 gene, one of the transcriptional targets of NKX2-1 [11, 27].
