SIX2

A gene on chromosome 2p21 that encodes a member of the sine oculis homeobox (SIX) transcription factor family which plays a role in eye and/or limb development.

ReACT is an autologous cell therapy in which a small amount of the patient's own kidney cells is extracted via a conventional biopsy, these cells (including a high proportion of the SIX2 progenitor cell population) are expanded in the lab over 4 to 6 weeks and then re-implanted into the patient's diseased kidney.
Currently the risk of prostate cancer in a lifetime for men living in the United States is calculated to be approximately one in six2. The incidence rate of prostate cancer in Pakistan with age adjustment is 5.3 per 100,000 person years and increasing number of cases are being reported in recent years3.
Among these top 30 genes, the 3 most highly connected genes were six2, cdh1, and mpzl2 (red-colored balls).
This result was confirmed by flow cytometry: the percentage of E-cadherin positive cells among the fresh isolated MMSCs was less than 1%, while percentage of SIX2 positive cells was more than 90% (Figures 1(b) and 1(c)).

One reason that Osafune attributed to this improvement was the use of cells that expressed Osr1 and Six2. Although these two factors are known markers of renal progenitors, until now researchers had not exclusively used cells that expressed both for cell therapies.
The researchers were able to differentiate the stem cells into expressing key markers of the intermediate mesoderm, which are the early cells that form the kidneys, and then induce diem further into expressing the marker SIX2, which is critical in kidney differentiation, according to their article in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.
The researchers could then differentiate them further into cells expressing SIX2, SALL1, and WTI, important markers of the metanephric cap mesenchyme, a critical stage of kidney differentiation.

Almost two thirds (six2 per cent) anticipate better things to come in the next six months.
