    ..Knockdown of DOCK180 reduces the stimulatory effect of FE65-ELMO1 on Rac1 activation and neurite outgrowth. Thus, we identify a novel mechanism by which FE65 stimulates Rac1-mediated neurite outgrowth by recruiting and activating ELMO1. ..

    ..These findings reveal a novel regulatory mechanism for FE65-APP-mediated signaling. ..

    ..Glycogen synthase kinase-3beta is a favoured candidate kinase for phosphorylating tau in Alzheimer's disease. Our findings show a new function for X11alpha that may impact on Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis. ..

    ..Thus, we identify FE65 as a novel regulator of neurite outgrowth via controlling ARF6-Rac1 signaling. ..

    ..Thus FE65 influences APP degradation via the proteasome and phosphorylation of FE65 Ser(610) by SGK1 regulates binding of FE65 to APP, APP turnover and processing. ..

    ..Hence, our findings reveal a novel mechanism that GSK3? stimulates amyloidogenic processing of APP by phosphorylation of FE65 at T579...
