- External push and internal pull forces recruit curvature-sensing N-BAR domain proteins to the plasma membraneMilos Galic
Department of Chemical and Systems Biology, Stanford University, 318 Campus Drive, Clark Building W200, Stanford, California 94305, USA
Nat Cell Biol 14:874-81. 2012..Together, our results show that N-BAR domains can be directly recruited to the plasma membrane by external push or internal pull forces that locally curve the plasma membrane...
- Imp-L2, a putative homolog of vertebrate IGF-binding protein 7, counteracts insulin signaling in Drosophila and is essential for starvation resistanceBasil Honegger
Zoological Institute, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
J Biol 7:10. 2008..In mammals, insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBPs) bind IGFs with high affinity and modulate their mitogenic, anti-apoptotic and metabolic actions, but no functional homologs have been identified in invertebrates so far...
- Dynamic recruitment of the curvature-sensitive protein ArhGAP44 to nanoscale membrane deformations limits exploratory filopodia initiation in neuronsMilos Galic
Department of Chemical and Systems Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, United States
elife 3:e03116. 2014..Together, our data reveals a local auto-regulatory mechanism that limits initiation of filopodia via protein recruitment to nanoscale membrane deformations. ..
