LRIG inhibitors of growth factor signalling - double-edged swords in human cancer?

Abstract

The leucine-rich repeats and immunoglobulin-like domains (LRIG) proteins are newly discovered negative regulators of growth factor signalling and proposed tumour suppressors. They antagonise signalling by interacting with growth factor receptors and by enhancing their ubiquitylation and degradation. Data on the expression of LRIG in human cancer have… (More)
