ABSTRACT
Caudal-type homeoboxgene transcription factor 2 is one member of the caudal- related homeobox family,is a transeription factors important in intestinal epithelial development and in the differentiation and maintenance of the intestinal phenotype.In adulthood,these two proteins are strictly confined to the gut and are predominantly expressed by the epithelium of the small intestine and colon,but not by the normal epithelium of the oesophagus and stomach.In intestinal metaplasia,caudal-type homeohoxgene transcription factor 2 upregulation can be a direct effect of injurious agents on epithelial cells and/or can be due to the inflammatory environment of EpM,exposure to acid and/or bile acids may activate caudal-type homeoboxgene transcription factor 2 expression in human esophageal epithelial cells through promoter demethylation,and ectopie caudal-type homeoboxgene transcription factor 2 expression in esophageal squamous epithelia.It has been suggested to play an important role with retinoic acid,MUC2,p63 gene,BMP4 and many other factors working together to promote the development of this process in intestinal metaplasia and cancers.
