hMena and the epithelial specific isoform hMena(11a) are actin cytoskeleton regulatory proteins belonging to the Ena/VASP family. EGF treatment of breast cancer cell lines upregulates hMena/hMena(11a) expression and phosphorylates hMena(11a), suggesting cross-talk between the ErbB receptor family and hMena/hMena(11a) in breast cancer. The aim of this study(More)
Epithelial V-like antigen (EVA) is an immunoglobulin-like adhesion molecule identified in a screen for molecules developmentally regulated at the DN to DP progression in thymocyte development. We show that EVA is expressed during the early stages of thymus organogenesis in both fetal thymic epithelia and T cell precursors, and is progressively downregulated(More)
hMena (ENAH), an actin regulatory protein involved in the control of cell motility and adhesion, is modulated during human breast carcinogenesis. In fact, whereas undetectable in normal mammary epithelium, hMena becomes overexpressed in high-risk benign lesions and primary and metastatic tumors. In vivo, hMena overexpression correlates with the(More)
