High impact information on Ctcf

  • In particular, over-expression of 11-zinc finger protein and glypican may be responsible for the inhibition of axonal growth and regeneration [1].
  • In addition, Ctcf disruption and forced Igf2 expression both enabled cells to proliferate in soft agar, a phenotype associated with malignant growth in vivo [2].
