Many tumors are stiffer than their surrounding tissue. This increase in stiffness has been attributed, in part, to a Rho-dependent elevation of myosin II light chain phosphorylation. To characterize this mechanism further, we studied myosin light chain kinase (MLCK), the main enzyme that phosphorylates myosin II light chains. We anticipated that increases(More)
A uthentication of cell lines in biomedical research has been elevated to a very high priority. In a review of the literature , Lacroix 1 examined the issue of cross-contamination of cell lines including the well-known contamination of cell lines with HeLa cells, 2 and the misidentification of the ECV304 cell line as " immortalized endothelial cells " when(More)
