    The RhoGTPases Rac and Rho are important for orchestrating cytoskeletal dynamics during cell migration and crosstalk to antagonize each others' activities. The discovery of a Rac GTPase activating protein (GAP) that is regulated by Rho and Rho kinase (ROCK) provides a new basis for this crosstalk.

    The Fyn related kinase (FRK), a member of intracellular Src-related tyrosine kinases, was recently reported to function as a potent tumor suppressor in several cancer types. However, the expression level and functional significance of FRK in human malignant glioma, which is characterized by high...

    Abstract  The chemokine receptor CXCR4 is functionally expressed on the cell surface of various cancer cells, and plays a role in cell proliferation and migration of these cells. Specifically, in breast cancer cells the CXCR4/CXCL12 axis has been implicated in cell migration in vitro...

    Cell migration is a complex, highly regulated process that involves the continuous formation and disassembly of adhesions (adhesion turnover). Adhesion formation takes place at the leading edge of protrusions, whereas disassembly occurs both at the cell rear and at the base of protrusions....

    Aims Ahnak protein acts as a scaffold protein networking phospholipase C-γ and protein kinase C-α, which subsequently stimulate an extracellular signal-regulated kinase (Erk) pathway. In mouse aortic smooth muscle cells (ASMCs), the activation of the signalling cascade ultimately promotes...
