The regulation of cell-cell adhesion is important for the processes of tissue formation and morphogenesis. Here, we report that loss of 14-3-3γ leads to a decrease in cell-cell adhesion and a defect in the transport of plakoglobin and other desmosomal proteins to the cell border in HCT116 cells and cells of the mouse testis. 14-3-3γ binds to plakoglobin in(More)
This report describes a technique for the generation of transgenic mice by in vivo manipulation of spermatogonial stem cells with a high rate of success. Spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) in pre-pubescent animals were infected in vivo with recombinant lentiviruses expressing EGFP-f and mated with normal females. All male pre-founder mice produced transgenic(More)
The desmosome anchors keratin filaments in epithelial cells leading to the formation of a tissue wide IF network. Loss of the desmosomal plaque protein plakophilin3 (PKP3) in HCT116 cells, leads to an increase in neoplastic progression and metastasis, which was accompanied by an increase in K8 levels. The increase in levels was due to an increase in the(More)
The regulation of cell–cell adhesion is important for the processes of tissue formation and morphogenesis. Here, we report that loss of 14-3-3c leads to a decrease in cell–cell adhesion and a defect in the transport of plakoglobin and other desmosomal proteins to the cell border in HCT116 cells and cells of the mouse testis. 14-3-3c binds to plakoglobin in(More)
