Continuous association of cadherin with β-catenin requires the non-receptor tyrosine-kinase Fer
The function of Type 1, classic cadherins depends on their association with the actin cytoskeleton, a connection mediated by α- and β-catenin. The phosphorylation state of β-catenin is crucial forExpand

Chern semimetal and the quantized anomalous Hall effect in HgCr2Se4.
In 3D momentum space, a topological phase boundary separating the Chern insulating layers from normal insulating layers may exist, where the gap must be closed, resulting in a "Chern semimetal" stateExpand

Downregulation of GLP-1 and GIP Receptor Expression by Hyperglycemia
Stimulation of insulin secretion by the incretin hormones glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) has been found to be diminished in type 2 diabetes. WeExpand

Mutations in the cytoplasmic domain of P0 reveal a role for PKC-mediated phosphorylation in adhesion and myelination
Mutations in P0 (MPZ), the major myelin protein of the peripheral nervous system, cause the inherited demyelinating neuropathy Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1B. P0 is a member of theExpand
