Rap1GAP impairs cell-matrix adhesion in the absence of effects on cell-cell adhesion.


The significance of the widespread downregulation of Rap1GAP in human tumors is unknown. In previous studies we demonstrated that silencing Rap1GAP expression in human colon cancer cells resulted in sustained increases in Rap activity, enhanced spreading on collagen and the weakening of cell-cell contacts. The latter finding was unexpected based on the role… (More)
