Cell fusion is essential for fertilization, myotube formation, and inflammation. Macrophages fuse under various circumstances, but the molecular signals involved in the distinct steps of their fusion are not fully characterized. Using null mice and derived cells, we show that the protease MT1-MMP is necessary for macrophage fusion during osteoclast and(More)
Caveolae are unique organelles that are found in the plasma membrane of many cell types. They participate in various processes such as lipid recycling, cellular signalling and endocytosis. A variety of signalling molecules localize to caveolae in response to various stimuli, providing a potential mechanism for the spatial regulation of signal transduction(More)
