Recent advances on surface engineering of magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles and their biomedical applications.
TLDR
In this review, different polymers/molecules that can be used for nanoparticle coating to stabilize the suspensions of magnetic nanoparticles under in vitro and in vivo situations are discussed and some selected proteins/targeting ligands that could beused for derivatizing magnetic nanop particles are explored.
Microtubule-Associated Protein 1B-Light Chain 1 Enhances Activation of Rap1 by Exchange Protein Activated by Cyclic AMP but Not Intracellular Targeting
TLDR
LC1 was able to enhance interaction of EPAC1 with cyclic AMP and heightened the ability ofEPAC to activate Rap1, and is therefore not involved in intracellular targeting of EPac1, but it is rather a molecular chaperone of EP AC activity toward Rap1.
MAP1A Light Chain 2 Interacts with Exchange Protein Activated by Cyclic AMP 1 (EPAC1) to Enhance Rap1 GTPase Activity and Cell Adhesion*
TLDR
LC2 is found to be a biological enhancer of EPAC1 activity toward Rap1 and associated downstream signaling mechanisms and cell adhesion to laminin was enhanced in LC2- andEPAC1-transfected cells stimulated with 8-CPT-2Me-cAMP.

TLDR
Results from cell adhesion/viability assay suggest that the pullulan nanoparticles are non-toxic to cells and do not cause any distinct harm to cells.

Exchange protein directly activated by cAMP (EPAC) interacts with the light chain (LC) 2 of MAP1A.
TLDR
Two-hybrid results suggest that the cAMP-binding domain of EPAC1 mediates interaction with LC2, which is associated with the perinuclear region surrounding the nucleus and filamentous structures throughout the cell.
