Dysregulation of HSG triggers vascular proliferative disorders
Vascular proliferative disorders, such as atherosclerosis and restenosis, are the most common causes of severe cardiovascular diseases, but a common molecular mechanism remains elusive. Here, weExpand

Genome sequence of Shigella flexneri 2a: insights into pathogenicity through comparison with genomes of Escherichia coli K12 and O157.
We have sequenced the genome of Shigella flexneri serotype 2a, the most prevalent species and serotype that causes bacillary dysentery or shigellosis in man. The whole genome is composed of a 4 607Expand

Identification of eight genes encoding chemokine-like factor superfamily members 1-8 (CKLFSF1-8) by in silico cloning and experimental validation.
TM4SF11 is only 102 kb from the chemokine gene cluster composed of SCYA22, SCYD1, and SCYA17 on chromosome 16q13. CKLF maps on chromosome 16q22. CKLFs have some characteristics associated with theExpand

PTPIP51, a novel 14-3-3 binding protein, regulates cell morphology and motility via Raf-ERK pathway.
Cell migration plays a critical role during the development of most organisms and the process of malignant tumor metastasis. In the present study, we investigated the role of PTPIP51 (proteinExpand

Nested genes in the human genome.
Here we studied one special type of gene, i.e., the nested gene, in the human genome. We collected 373 reliably annotated nested genes. Two-thirds of them were on the strand opposite that of theirExpand

Protein kinase C zeta is required for epidermal growth factor-induced chemotaxis of human breast cancer cells.
Chemotaxis plays an important role in cancer cell metastasis. In this study, we showed that epidermal growth factor (EGF) was a more potent chemoattractant than chemokine SDF-1alpha/CXCL12 for humanExpand

PDCD10 interacts with Ste20-related kinase MST4 to promote cell growth and transformation via modulation of the ERK pathway.
PDCD10 (programmed cell death 10, TFAR15), a novel protein associated with cell apoptosis has been recently implicated in mutations associated with Cerebral Cavernous Malformations (CCM). YeastExpand

Chemokine-like factor 1 is a functional ligand for CC chemokine receptor 4 (CCR4)
Abstract Chemokine-like factor 1 (CKLF1) exhibits chemotactic effects on leukocytes. Its amino acid sequence shares similarity with those of TARC/CCL17 and MDC/CCL22, the cognate ligands forExpand

CMTM3, located at the critical tumor suppressor locus 16q22.1, is silenced by CpG methylation in carcinomas and inhibits tumor cell growth through inducing apoptosis.
Closely located at the tumor suppressor locus 16q22.1, CKLF-like MARVEL transmembrane domain-containing member 3 and 4 (CMTM3 and CMTM4) encode two CMTM family proteins, which link chemokines and theExpand

Down-Regulation of 3-Phosphoinositide–Dependent Protein Kinase-1 Levels Inhibits Migration and Experimental Metastasis of Human Breast Cancer Cells
High expression of 3-phosphoinositide–dependent protein kinase-1 (PDK1) has been detected in various invasive cancers. In the current study, we investigated its role in cancer cell migration andExpand
