Invasion of tumor cells is a key step in metastasis that depends largely on the ability of these cells to degrade the extracellular matrix. Although we have showed that the GTPase ADP-ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1) is overexpressed in highly invasive breast cancer cell lines and that epidermal growth factor stimulation can activate this ARF isoform to(More)
Metastatic capacities are fundamental features of tumor malignancy. ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF) 1 has emerged as a key regulator of invasion in breast cancer cells. However, the importance of this GTPase, in vivo, remains to be demonstrated. We report that ARF1 is highly expressed in breast tumors of the most aggressive and advanced subtypes. Furthermore,(More)
Adhesion complex formation and disassembly is crucial for maintaining efficient cell movement. During migration, several proteins act in concert to promote remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton and we have previously shown that in highly invasive breast cancer cells, this process is regulated by small GTP-binding proteins of the ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF)(More)
The clinical use of EGFR-targeted therapy, in triple negative breast cancer patients, has been limited by the development of resistance to these drugs. Although activated signaling molecules contribute to this process, the molecular mechanisms remain relatively unknown. We have previously reported that the small GTPase ADP-Ribosylation Factor 1 (ARF1) is(More)
