Disulfide Bond Mediates Aggregation, Toxicity, and Ubiquitylation of Familial Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis-linked Mutant SOD1*
Mutations in the Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD1) gene cause familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) through the gain of a toxic function; however, the nature of this toxic function remainsExpand

A novel function of CD82/KAI-1 on E-cadherin-mediated homophilic cellular adhesion of cancer cells.
In this study, we analyzed the effect of the metastasis suppressor CD82/KAI-1, a member of the tetraspanin superfamily, on intercellular adhesion on cancer cells. The newly established invasion assayExpand
