Nischarin regulates focal adhesion and Invadopodia formation in breast cancer cells
(BioMed Central Ltd., 2018)
Background: During metastasis, tumor cells move through the tracks of extracellular matrix (ECM). Focal adhesions (FAs) are the protein complexes that link the cell cytoskeleton to the ECM and their presence is necessary ...
Book Review: Gastrointestinal Physiology and Diseases Methods and Protocols
(Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, 2017)
The gastrointestinal tract is one of the largest immunological organs and plays a pivotal role in maintaining normal homeostasis in the body. The statement made by Hippocrates more than 2,000 years ago “all disease begins ...
Nischarin inhibition alters energy metabolism by activating AMP-activated protein kinase
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Inc., 2017)
Nischarin (Nisch) is a key protein functioning as a molecular scaffold and thereby hosting interactions with several protein partners. To explore the physiological importance of Nisch, here we generated Nisch loss-of-function ...
Exosomes from Nischarin-Expressing Cells Reduce Breast Cancer Cell Motility and tumor growth.
(Americal Association for Cancer Research, 2019)
Exosomes are small extracellular microvesicles that are secreted by cells when intracellular multivesicular bodies (MVB) fuse with the plasma membrane. We have previously demonstrated that Nischarin inhibits focal adhesion ...
