In comparison to the internalization pathways of endocytosis, the recycling pathways are less understood. Even less defined is the process of regulated recycling, as few examples exist and their… Expand
Despite their importance in cell biology, the mechanisms that maintain the nucleus in its proper position in the cell are not well understood. This is primarily the result of an incomplete knowledge… Expand
Binding between sperm and egg plasma membranes is an essential step in fertilization. Whereas fertilin, a mammalian sperm surface protein, is involved in this crucial interaction, sperm receptors on… Expand
Accumulating evidence indicates that there is extensive crosstalk between integrins and TGF-beta signalling. TGF-beta affects integrin-mediated cell adhesion and migration by regulating the… Expand
Integrin adhesion receptors are essential for the normal function of most multicellular organisms, and defective integrin activation or integrin signaling is associated with an array of pathological… Expand
The outer nuclear membrane proteins nesprin-1 and nesprin-2 are retained at the nuclear envelope through an interaction of their klarsicht/ANC-1/syne homology (KASH) domain with Sun proteins present… Expand
Hemidesmosomes are multiprotein adhesion complexes that promote epithelial stromal attachment in stratified and complex epithelia. Modulation of their function is of crucial importance in a variety… Expand
Hemidesmosomes (HDs) promote the stable adhesion of basal epithelial cells to the underlying basement membrane (BM). Critical for the mechanical stability of the HD is the interaction between… Expand
Vinculin localizes to tension-bearing cell–cell junctions to help transmit signals from E-cadherin to the actin cytoskeleton in response to mechanical stress.
CD151 is a cell surface protein that belongs to the tetraspan superfamily. It associates with other tetraspan molecules and certain integrins to form large complexes at the cell surface. CD151 is… Expand
