WI-2, a cell surface immunoglobulin SF protein of unknown function, associates with tetraspanins CD9 and CD81 with high stoichiometry. Overexpression of EWI-2 in A431 epidermoid carcinoma cells did not alter cell adhesion or spreading on laminin-5, and had no effect on reaggregation of cells plated on collagen I (␣ 2 ␤ 1 integrin ligand). However, on(More)
EWI-2, a cell surface IgSF protein, is highly expressed in normal human brain but is considerably diminished in glioblastoma tumors and cell lines. Moreover, loss of EWI-2 expression correlated with a shorter survival time in human glioma patients, suggesting that EWI-2 might be a natural inhibitor of glioblastoma. In support of this idea, EWI-2 expression(More)
BACKGROUND The CD98 (4F2, FRP-1) is a widely expressed cell surface protein heterodimer composed of a glycosylated heavy chain and a non-glycosylated light chain. Originally described as a T cell activation antigen, it was later shown to function in amino acid transport, cell fusion and homotypic cell aggregation. Several lines of evidence suggest its(More)
PS1 mutations are associated with classic Alzheimer's disease (AD); however, some families develop AD and spastic paraplegia (SP) with brain pathology characterized by Abeta cotton wool plaques. The authors report a variant AD family with the E280Q PS1 mutation. The fact that the same PS1 mutation can be found in patients with either variant or classic AD(More)
Due to inherent complexity active transport presents a landmark hurdle for oral absorption properties prediction. We present a novel approach carrier-mediated drug absorption parameters calculation based on entirely different paradigm than QSPR. We capitalize on recently emerged ideas that molecule activities against a large protein set can be used for(More)
