There is considerable controversy concerning the function of nuclear-localized PHB. PHB has potential roles as a tumor suppressor, an anti-proliferative protein, a regulator of cell-cycle progression and in apoptosis. PHB might also function as a cell-surface receptor for an as-yet unidentified ligand. Cell-associated PHB in the… CONTINUE READING
