Invadopodia are matrix-degrading membrane protrusions in invasive carcinoma cells. The mechanisms regulating invadopodium assembly and maturation are not understood. We have dissected the stages of invadopodium assembly and maturation and show that invadopodia use cortactin phosphorylation as a master switch during these processes. In particular, cortactin(More)
Neurons of the cortical subplate display evidence of cell death, although a significant population survives to the mature brain. The present study examined different populations of neurons to determine if the loss of cells was specific for a particular cell type. Immunocytochemical procedures for neurons expressing GluR2/3, GAD, or NPY, were used on tissue(More)
