In gastric cancer, the non-canonical Wnt signaling pathway is activated by Wnt5a, which has a critical role in disease outcome. Previous studies have shown that Wnt5a mediates the expression of the extracellular matrix protein laminin γ2 through Rac and JNK activation to promote gastric cancer progression. However, the mechanism of this regulatory pathway(More)
Motile cilia in ependymal cells, which line the cerebral ventricles, exhibit a coordinated beating motion that drives directional cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow and guides neuroblast migration. At the apical cortex of these multi-ciliated cells, asymmetric localization of planar cell polarity (PCP) proteins is required for the planar polarization of(More)
