Delta-Catenin Induced Dendritic Morphogenesis: An Essential Role of p190RhoGEF Interaction through Akt1 Mediated Phosphorylation
(East Carolina University, 2008-01-11)
delta-Catenin was first identified through its interaction with Presenilin-1 and has been implicated in the regulation of dendrogenesis and cognitive function. However, the molecular mechanisms by which delta-catenin ...
Identification of E2F1 as a positive transcriptional regulator for delta-catenin
(East Carolina University, 2008-05-02)
Delta-Catenin is upregulated in human carcinomas. However, little is known about the potential transcriptional factors that regulate delta-catenin expression in cancer. Using a human delta-catenin reporter system, we have ...
E-Cadherin negatively modulates delta-catenin-induced morphological changes and RhoA activity reduction by competing with p190RhoGEF for delta-catenin
(East Carolina University, 2008-12-12)
δ-Catenin is a member of the p120-catenin subfamily of armadillo proteins. Here, we describe distinctive features of δ-catenin localization and its association with E-cadherin in HEK293 epithelial cells. In HEK293 cells ...
