- The p150-Spir protein provides a link between c-Jun N-terminal kinase function and actin reorganizationI M Otto
Institut fur Medizinische Strahlenkunde und Zellforschung, Universitat Wurzburg, Wurzburg, 97078, Germany
Curr Biol 10:345-8. 2000..Carboxy-terminal sequences of p150-Spir were phosphorylated by JNK both in vitro and in vivo. We conclude that p150-Spir is a downstream target of JNK function and provides a direct link between JNK and actin organization...
- Overlapping expression pattern of the actin organizers Spir-1 and formin-2 in the developing mouse nervous system and the adult brainNina Schumacher
Theodor Boveri Institut Biozentrum, Universitat Wurzburg, Physiologische Chemie I, Am Hubland, 97074 Wurzburg, Germany
Gene Expr Patterns 4:249-55. 2004..In mouse embryos both genes are expressed in the developing nervous system. In the adult brain high expression of the genes was found in the Purkinje cells of the cerebellum and in neuronal cells of the hippocampus and dentate gyrus...

Institut fur Medizinische Strahlenkunde und Zellforschung, Universitat Wurzburg, Germany
Cell Growth Differ 11:185-90. 2000..Our studies show that the c-Raf-1 expression level is a critical parameter in tumor development and should be analyzed in more detail to evaluate its potential in the induction of cancer...
- Constitutive JNK activation in NIH 3T3 fibroblasts induces a partially transformed phenotypeUlrike E E Rennefahrt
