Novel Protein Kinase C-Mediated Control of Orai1 Function in Invasive Melanoma.

The incidence of malignant melanoma, a cancer of the melanocyte cell lineage, has nearly doubled in the past 20 years. Wnt5A, akey driver of melanoma invasiveness, induces Ca2 signals. To understand how store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) contributes to Wnt5A-induced malignancy in melanoma models, we examined the expression and function of STIM1 and Orai1… CONTINUE READING
