Cell polarity proteins regulate tight junction formation and directional migration in epithelial cells. To date, the mechanism by which these polarity proteins assemble at the leading edge of migrating epithelial cells remains unclear. We report that occludin, a transmembrane protein, is localized at the leading edge of migrating cells and regulates(More)
All polyadenylated RNAs expressed in mammalian tissues are assumed to be transported to the cytoplasm where they direct the synthesis of a protein product. This mainstream view of the function of polyadenylated transcripts is currently being challenged by the identification of a novel class of genes which, although they encode polyadenylated RNA, do not(More)
C-terminal Src kinase (Csk) that functions as an essential negative regulator of Src family tyrosine kinases (SFKs) interacts with tyrosine-phosphorylated molecules through its Src homology 2 (SH2) domain, allowing it targeting to the sites of SFKs and concomitantly enhancing its kinase activity. Identification of additional Csk-interacting proteins is(More)
The His-1 gene is developmentally expressed in the murine choroid plexus but is silenced in the adult brain. To test the hypothesis that the gene contains cis-acting elements that contribute to this repression, we have analyzed segments of the proximal promoter for negative regulatory sequences by transient transfection analysis. The activity of the(More)
