Girdin (girders of actin filaments) is a novel actin-binding Akt substrate that plays an important role in actin organization and Akt-dependent cell motility in fibroblasts. Here, we find that Girdin is expressed in a variety of cancer cell lines, including the breast cancer cell line MDA-MB-231, and is phosphorylated by the stimulation of insulin-like(More)
Paternal uniparental disomy 14 (UPD(14)pat) results in a unique constellation of clinical features, and a similar phenotypic constellation is also caused by microdeletions involving the DLK1-MEG3 intergenic differentially methylated region (IG-DMR) and/or the MEG3-DMR and by epimutations (hypermethylations) affecting the DMRs. However, relative frequency of(More)
Dear Sir, Endoscopic resection of mucosal lesions has become a common practice for early stage gastrointestinal neoplasms [1, 2]. Consequently, endoscopically resected mucosal lesions are increasingly examined in pathology laboratories. The success of the endoscopic management of such neoplasms heavily depends on the precise and complete histological(More)
