    Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
    Cell Biol Int 26:463-76. 2002
    ..Normal adult epithelial cells appear to use APC to keep beta-catenin out of the nucleus, thereby avoiding pathologies such as metastases due to LEF/beta-catenin-induced EMT...

    Elizabeth D Hay
    Harvard Medical School, Department of Cell Biology, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA

    J Cell Biol 163:1291-301. 2003
    ..When phospho-Smad2 and Smad4 are present in the nucleus, LEF1 is activated without beta-catenin. Our paper is the first to show that the Smad2,4/LEF1 complex replaces beta-catenin/LEF1 during activation of EMT in vivo by TGFbeta3...
