Lymphoedema-distichiasis syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease caused by mutations in FOXC2
For EMT characterization, these cells were also stained for EMT markers Twist, Snail, and FOXC2 (R&D Systems) and epithelial-specific markers EpCAM and E-cadherin (Cell Signaling).
The CTCs detected with 84-1 antibody were tested for the presence of EMT-specific markers, and the results indicated the expression of Snail, Twist, and FOXC2, whereas epithelial specific markers EpCAM and E-cadherin were downregulated in these CTCs (see online Supplemental Fig.

We found that FOXC2 lies at the crossroads of the cellular properties of cancer stem cells and cells that have undergone epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT), a process of cellular change associated with generating cancer stem cells," said senior author Sendurai Mam, Ph.
We found many of these pathways also activate FOXC2 expression to launch this transition, making FOXC2 a potentially efficient check point to block EMT from occurring," Mani said.
Blocking FOXC2 had no effect on cell growth, but it altered both the physical appearance of the cells, increased their ability to cluster like epithelial cells, reduced protein biomarkers of mesenchymal cells and increased levels of Ecadherin, an important epithelial cell marker.
Mani said the team believes that targeting FOXC2 pathway using either PDGFR-beta inhibitors or other yet-to-be-known small-molecule inhibitors will be an effective therapeutic strategy for inhibiting EMT and consequently reducing EMT/cancer stem cell-associated metastasis, relapse and therapy resistance.

Rare, autosomal dominant disorder of pubertal onset, associated with distichiasis associated with FOXC2
While the cause of the extra lashes is indeed a mutation - a result of an abnormal development of the FOXC2
gene - the effect of the luxurious lashes, also known as an "accessory row", was entirely captivating, framing Taylor's deep violet eyes, and only added to what admirers called her 'incandescent' beauty.
