    ..Our results suggest that Kpm/Lats2 is involved in the fate of p73 through the phosphorylation of YAP2 by Kpm/Lats2 and the induction of p73 target genes that underlie chemosensitivity of leukemic cells. ..

    ..Therefore, each isoform of paxillin exhibits distinct expression and different biochemical as well as physiological properties and thereby appears to act as a distinct module involved in different functions of integrins. ..

    ..We predict that filament severing and end-to-end annealing might take place fairly frequently in the dendritic nucleation actin arrays. ..
