- Regulation of collective cell migration by RhoGAP myosin IXATatiana Omelchenko
Cell Biology Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY, USA
Small Gtpases 3:213-8. 2012..Here, I discuss how myosin IXA regulates Rho and the actin cytoskeleton during the assembly of nascent cell-cell contacts and how this might contribute to collective epithelial migration...
- Myosin-IXA regulates collective epithelial cell migration by targeting RhoGAP activity to cell-cell junctionsTatiana Omelchenko
Cell Biology Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, NY 10065, USA
Curr Biol 22:278-88. 2012....
- Rac1-dependent collective cell migration is required for specification of the anterior-posterior body axis of the mouseIsabelle Migeotte
Developmental Biology Program, Sloan Kettering Institute, New York, New York, United States of America
PLoS Biol 8:e1000442. 2010..The data show that Rac1-mediated epithelial migration of the AVE is a crucial step in the establishment of the mammalian body plan and suggest that Rac1 is essential for collective migration in mammalian tissues...
- LKB1 tumor suppressor protein regulates actin filament assembly through Rho and its exchange factor Dbl independently of kinase activityXiaojian Xu
Cell Biology Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, 1275 York Avenue, New York, NY 10065, USA
BMC Cell Biol 11:77. 2010..In addition, LKB1 is homologous to PAR-4, a polarity protein first described in C. elegans, while activation of LKB1 in mammalian epithelial cells induces the polarized assembly of actin filaments...
