The inverse F-BAR (IF-BAR) domain proteins srGAP1, srGAP2 and srGAP3 are implicated in neuronal development and may be linked to mental retardation, schizophrenia and seizure. A partially overlapping expression pattern and highly similar protein structures indicate a functional redundancy of srGAPs in neuronal development. Our previous study suggests that(More)
TET1 protein is reported to suppress cancer invasion and metastasis in prostate and breast cancer while EZH2, a polycomb group protein, has been identified as an oncogene in many types of cancers including gastric cancer. Here we report that there is an inverse relation of the expression pattern of TET1 and EZH2 in both normal gastric mucosa and gastric(More)
Malignant meningiomas are a rare meningioma subtype and tend to have post-surgical recurrence. Significant endeavors have been taken to identify functional therapeutic targets to halt the growth of this aggressive cancer. We have recently discovered that RIZ1 is downregulated in high-grade meningiomas, and RIZ1 overexpression inhibits proliferation while(More)
The Slit-Robo GTPase-activating proteins (srGAPs) are important multifunctional adaptor proteins involved in various aspects of neuronal development, including axon guidance, neuronal migration, neurite outgrowth, dendritic morphology and synaptic plasticity. Among them, srGAP3, also named MEGAP (Mental disorder-associated GTPase-activating protein), plays(More)
Protein structure networks (PSNs) were widely used in analyses of protein structure and function. In this work, we analyzed and compared the characters of PSNs by different methods. The degrees of the different types of the nodes were found to be associated with the amino acid characters, including SAS, secondary structure, hydropathy and the volume of(More)
The methylcytosine dioxygenases TET proteins (TET1, TET2, and TET3) play important regulatory roles in neural function. In this study, we investigated the role of TET proteins in neuronal differentiation using Neuro2a cells as a model. We observed that knockdown of TET1, TET2 or TET3 promoted neuronal differentiation of Neuro2a cells, and their(More)
The Slit-Robo GTPase activating protein 3 (srGAP3) is an important modulator of actin cytoskeletal dynamics and has an important influence on a variety of neurodevelopmental processes. Mutations in the SRGAP3 gene on chromosome 3p25 have been found in patients with intellectual disability. Genome-wide association studies and behavioral assays of knockout(More)
Increased ubiquitin-specific protease 22 (USP22) has been associated with poor prognosis in several cancers including gastric cancer. However, the role of USP22 in gastric tumorigenesis is still unclear. Gastric cancer stem cells have been identified and shown to correlate with gastric cancer initiation and metastasis. In this study, we found that silencing(More)
