We previously identified NEDD9 (RAINB2/HEF1/Cas-L) as a new downstream target of all-trans retinoic acid (atRA) and its receptors in the human neuroblastoma cell line, SH-SY5Y [R.A. Merrill, A.W.-M. See, M.L. Wertheim, M. Clagett-Dame, Dev. Dyn. 231 (2004) 564-575; R.A. Merrill, J.M. Ahrens, M.E. Kaiser, K.S. Federhart, V.Y. Poon, M. Clagett-Dame, Biol.(More)
Neural precursor cell expressed, developmentally down-regulated 9 (Nedd9, Casl, Hef1, p105cas, Ef1) is a scaffolding protein that assembles complexes involved in regulating cell adhesion, migration, division, and survival. Nedd9 is found very early in the developing embryonic nervous system. A highly conserved complex retinoic acid response element (RARE)(More)
NEDD9 (neural precursor cell expressed, developmentally down-regulated 9) is a member of the CAS (Crk-associated substrate) family of scaffolding proteins that regulate cell adhesion and migration. A Nedd9 knock-out/lacZ knock-in mouse (Nedd9(-/)(-)) was developed in order to study Nedd9 expression and function in the nervous system. Herein we show that(More)
The vitamin A metabolite, all-trans retinoic acid (atRA), is a regulator of nervous system development. Using a subtracted cDNA library constructed from neuroblastoma cells, the atRA-responsive gene calmin (Clmn) was identified (Merrill et al. [2004] Biol Chem 385:605-614). The Clmn transcript is detected very early in rat embryonic development and is(More)
BACKGROUND Vitamin D analogs and calcimimetics are used to manage secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) in dialysis patients. DP001 is an oral vitamin D analog that suppresses parathyroid hormone (PTH) in uremic rats, osteopenic women, and hemodialysis patients. The safety and effectiveness of DP001 suppressing PTH in dialysis patients previously managed(More)
