The role of hLHX6-HMR as a methylation biomarker for early diagnosis of cervical cancer.

The homo sapiens LIM homeobox domain LHX6 gene, hLHX6, is a putative transcription regulator with homeo-domain. Multiple cytosine guanine dinucleotides (CpG island) are found in the genomic sequences between exon 4a and exon 5 of the gene encoding hLHX6s (alternative short iso-form of hLHX6 gene). This specific CpG island, hLHX6-HMR, is found frequently… (More)
