Frances Carr, PhD, professor, Department of Pharmacology, The University of Vermont, discusses the relationship between the thyroid hormone receptor and Runx2 expression in thyroid cancer cells.


  • The thyroid hormone receptor is a possible tumor suppressor.
  • Studies have shown that Runx2 may be a tumor promoter in papillary thyroid cancer.
  • An inverse relationship was seen between thyroid hormone receptor expression and Runx2.
  • This relationship is being explored and could have therapeutic implications in the future.
