The cadherin-catenin adhesion system in signaling and cancer

To assemble into organized tissues, cells must interact with one another and with the extracellular matrix. Cell-cell adhesion is initiated and maintained by adherens junctions. Within these junctions, transmembrane cadherins bind homophilically to join n eighboring cells. Changes in cell adhesio...

Interconnection of human Sprouty 2 (hSpry2), Cbl, and the EGF receptor (EGFR): impact on endocytosis of the EGFR from clathrin-coated pits

Growth factor receptors control cellular growth and differentiation by transmitting signals from outside the cell to the cell interior, particularly the nucleus. Signal transmission can be modulated in several ways. To control signaling, down-regulation o f receptors from the cell surface is impo...
