    basic FUNCTION
  • regulation of a variety of proangiogenic stimuli (direct role in tumor progression)
  • part of a developmental regulatory system that provides cell with specific positional identities on the antero-posterial axis
  • having a a function in promoting tumor invasion through activation of Ras/Rho pathway by up-regulating FGF2, a known transcriptional target of HOXB7
  • involved in DNA double-strand break repair
  • regulates the expression of TALE HOX cofactors by increasing PBX2 and PREP1 and decreasing PBX1
  • plays an important role in the development and progression of human colorectal cancer
  • polyADP-ribosylation regulates transcriptional activities of HOX proteins such as HOXB7 and HOXA7
  • promote cell proliferation, angiogenesis, epithelial-mesenchymal transition
  • CELLULAR PROCESS nucleotide, transcription
