Forkhead box (FOX) proteins constitute a family of transcription factors that are evolutionarily conserved in various species ranging from yeast to humans. These proteins have functions during development as well as in adulthood. To date, many reports have described the functions of FOX family genes in cancer cells, but the role of FOXB2 is not well understood. In one of the pancreas ductal adenocarcinoma cell lines, Panc‐1 cells, we showed here that FOXB2 expression is barely detectable and…

Concomitant Targeting of Multiple Key Transcription Factors Effectively Disrupts Cancer Stem Cells Enriched in Side Population of Human Pancreatic Cancer Cells
The findings indicate that targeting the key genes conferring the stemness of CSCs can efficiently eliminate CSC-like phenotypes, and thus may be considered a new approach for cancer therapy.
Wnt activator FOXB2 drives prostate cancer neuroendocrine differentiation
The results suggest that FOXB2 is a tissue-specific Wnt enhancer that promotes prostate cancer malignant transformation and decreases recurrence-free survival.
Transcriptomic and CRISPR/Cas9 technologies reveal FOXA2 as a tumor suppressor gene in pancreatic cancer.
FOXA2 is identified as a novel tumor suppressor in pancreatic cancer and it is regulated directly by miR-199a, thereby enhancing the understanding of how microRNAs interplay with the transcription factors to affect pancreatic oncogenesis.

The Metastatic Potential and Chemoresistance of Human Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells
The isolation of SP cells can be a convenient and effective tool for the study of PDAC CSCs and the ABCG2 transporter is responsible for the SP phenotype in human PDAC cells, and may be a ubiquitous source of drug-resistance in PDAC, but does not confer resistance to gemcitabine.
The Dominant Role of Forkhead Box Proteins in Cancer
Some major aspects of FOX transcription factors in association with cancer research such as drug resistance, tumor growth, genomic alterations or drivers of initiation are summarized.
