    ..Our results suggest that low CDK5 expression is associated with poor overall survival in patients with gastric cancer, and nuclear accumulation of CDK5 inhibits the proliferation and tumorigenicity of human gastric cancer cells. ..

    ..We propose that the effects of p25, although normally attributed to activate CDK5, may be mediated in part by elevated GSK3β activity. ..

    ..Our results reveal a distinct astroglial role for menin in regulating neuroinflammation in depression, indicating that menin may be an attractive therapeutic target in MDD. ..

    ..Targeting CLIC4 in neurons may therefore provide a therapeutic approach for managing progressive neurodegenerative diseases that arise from neuronal apoptosis. ..

    ..These results reveal a critical role for menin in synaptic and cognitive function by modulating the p35-Cdk5 pathway. ..

    ..The data suggest an unsuspected role for Cdk5 during the progression of a normal cell cycle and offer new pharmaceutical targets for regulating neuronal cell cycling and cell death. ..
