Caveolins consist of three different membrane scaffolding proteins that play a variety of processes in different tissues. In skeletal muscle caveolins are differentially distributed, with Caveolin 1 (Cav-1) being uniquely expressed in satellite cells and Caveolin 3 (Cav-3) in mature myofibers. Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) represents the most common childhood(More)
Caveolin-1 (Cav-1) can ambiguously behave as either tumor suppressor or oncogene depending on its phosphorylation state and the type of cancer. In this study we show that Cav-1 was phosphorylated on tyrosine 14 (pCav-1) by Src-kinase family members in various human cell lines and primary mouse cultures of rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), the most frequent(More)
