  1. Sato N, Funayama N, Nagafuchi A, Yonemura S, Tsukita S. A gene family consisting of ezrin, radixin and moesin. Its specific localization at actin filament/plasma membrane association sites. J Cell Sci. 1992;103 ( Pt 1):131-43 pubmed
    ..We conclude that at least one of the members of the ezrin-radixin-moesin family is concentrated at specific regions where actin filaments are densely associated with plasma membranes. ..
  2. Enomoto A, Murakami H, Asai N, Morone N, Watanabe T, Kawai K, et al. Akt/PKB regulates actin organization and cell motility via Girdin/APE. Dev Cell. 2005;9:389-402 pubmed
    ..These findings suggest that Girdin is essential for the integrity of the actin cytoskeleton and cell migration and provide a direct link between Akt and cell motility. ..
  3. Tsutsui K, Manabe R, Yamada T, Nakano I, Oguri Y, Keene D, et al. ADAMTSL-6 is a novel extracellular matrix protein that binds to fibrillin-1 and promotes fibrillin-1 fibril formation. J Biol Chem. 2010;285:4870-82 pubmed publisher
    ..All together, these results indicated that ADAMTSL-6 is a novel microfibril-associated protein that binds directly to fibrillin-1 and promotes fibrillin-1 matrix assembly. ..

    ..Our results suggest that Girdin and Girdin-interacting proteins control neuronal migration by regulating actin and/or microtubule dynamics. ..
