  • 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.
