Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is considered as an essential determinant of carcinoma progression. The transcription factor Snail controls EMT by repressing E-cadherin gene expression and other epithelial genes. Snail protein stability and cellular localization is finely controlled by GSK3beta-dependent phosphorylation and subsequent ubiquitination. GSK3beta phosphorylates Snail at two different motifs which induce its nuclear export and association with beta-Trcp thus leading to Snail… CONTINUE READING
