The IQ-domain GTPase-activating protein 1 (IQGAP1) is a multifunctional scaffold protein, which interacts with diverse proteins to regulate cell adhesion and cell migration. The abnormal expression of IQGAP1 widely exists in many cancers, but biological roles of IQGAP1 cooperation with its interacting proteins to involve in tumorigenesis remain to clarify.(More)
The STC2 protein involves in carcinogenesis and progression of many cancers. It remains unclear how STC2 regulates the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process and colorectal cancer (CRC) development. Here we systematically investigated STC2-activated early occurrence of EMT and CRC cell migration in vitro, clinical associations of STC2 with CRC(More)
The protein ARHGDIA has been found to play distinct roles in cancer progression for several tumors. However, it remains elusive whether and how ARHGDIA plays functions in human glioma. In this study, we discovered that ARHGDIA is much downregulated in human glioma; meanwhile, its expression negatively correlates with glioma malignancy and positively relates(More)
IQGAP1 is a conserved multifunctional protein implicated in tumorigenesis. An aberrant expression of IQGAP1 widely exists in many cancers, but the SUMOylation modification of IQGAP1 in carcinogenesis is unknown by now. Here we first time explore biological functions of IQGAP1 SUMOylation in promoting colorectal cancer progression in vitro and in vivo. The(More)
PP2Acα2 is a recently discovered PP2Acα alternative splicing isoform that can be induced following serum withdrawal. It shows enhanced binding to immunoglobulin binding protein 1 and is overexpressed in chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients. Current knowledge concerning PP2Acα2 is limited. In this study, we induced and cloned PP2Acα2 from HL-60 cells and(More)
SUMOylation, as a post-translational modification, plays essential roles in various biological functions including cell growth, migration, cellular responses to stress and tumorigenesis. The imbalance of SUMOylation and deSUMOylation has been associated with the occurrence and progression of various diseases. Herein, we summarize and discuss the signal(More)
