Next, she demonstrated that among the 17 associates of the KLF family members, bortezomib specifically and potently induced KLF2 levels. Finally, the importance was confirmed by her of KLF2 by injecting bortezomib into mice lacking the KLF2 gene. Although bortezomib treatment safeguarded regular mice from thrombosis, this effect was absent in the KLF2-deficient mice.
