The T-box transcription factor, TBX3, plays an important role in embryonic development, and haploinsufficiency of TBX3 causes ulnar-mammary syndrome. Overexpression of TBX3, on the other hand, is associated with several cancers, and preliminary evidence suggests that increased levels of TBX3 may inhibit cell proliferation but promote tumor migration and(More)
The T-box transcription factors TBX2 and TBX3 are overexpressed in several cancers and are able to bypass senescence by repressing ARF and p21(WAF1/CIP1/SDII). Although these studies suggest that they may both contribute to the oncogenic process by repressing common targets, whether they have redundant or distinct roles in cancers where they are both(More)
A growing body of work has shown that the highly homologous T-box transcription factors TBX2 and TBX3 play critical but distinct roles in embryonic development and cancer progression. For example, TBX2 and TBX3 are up-regulated in several cancers and recent evidence suggests that whereas TBX2 functions as a pro-proliferative factor, TBX3 inhibits cell(More)
