BACKGROUND Human osteopontin (OPN), a known tumor associated protein, exists in different isoforms, whose function is unclear. It also possesses a RGD domain, which has been implicated in diverse function. Here, we use genetic approaches to systematically investigate the function of the RGD domain in different OPN isoforms on tumor progression and(More)
CPEB-mediated polyadenylation-induced translation of several developmentally important mRNAs drives Xenopus laevis oocyte meiotic progression and production of fertilizable eggs. To date, the signal transduction events that induce CPEB activation remain somewhat unclear, however, XGef has been shown to be involved in this process. P42 MAPK (ERK2) activity(More)
