Down-regulation of E-cadherin marks the initiation of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition, a process exploited by invasive cancer cells. The zinc finger transcription factor, Snail, functions as a… Expand
Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMPs) Regulate Fibrin-invasive Activity via MT1-MMP–dependent and –independent Processes
Cross-linked fibrin is deposited in tissues surrounding wounds, inflammatory sites, or tumors and serves not only as a supporting substratum for trafficking cells, but also as a structural barrier to… Expand

Membrane type-1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP) drives cell invasion through three-dimensional (3-D) extracellular matrix (ECM) barriers dominated by type I collagen or fibrin. Based largely on… Expand
Shrub encroachment with increasing anthropogenic disturbance in the semiarid Inner Mongolian grasslands of China
Abstract Many arid grasslands around the world are affected by shrub encroachment. However, the transition states of shrub-encroached ecosystems are still poorly known, and the effects of human… Expand
A Wnt–Axin2–GSK3β cascade regulates Snail1 activity in breast cancer cells
Accumulating evidence indicates that hyperactive Wnt signalling occurs in association with the development and progression of human breast cancer. As a consequence of engaging the canonical Wnt… Expand
A p53/miRNA-34 axis regulates Snail1-dependent cancer cell epithelial–mesenchymal transition
Expression of the essential EMT inducer Snail1 is inhibited by miR-34 through a p53-dependent regulatory pathway.
