|Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) Markers
Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition (EMT) is the trans-differentiation of stationary epithelial cells into motile mesenchymal cells. During EMT, epithelial cells lose their junctions and apical-basal polarity, reorganize their cytoskeleton, undergo a... Read more.
|Alpha-smooth muscle actin and the modulation of endothelial and epithelial cell biology
Actin is essential for a wide range of cell functions, ranging from cell division and chromatin remodeling to vesicle trafficking and maintenance of cellular structure. In fact, mislocalization of actin to cell junctions during development leads t... Read more.
|Using the Laminin Antibody in Angiogenesis Research
Laminin is one of a large number of proteins expressed on the basal laminar of the ECM (extracellular matrix). The laminin antibody database covers several proteins, which interact with integrins and other receptor proteins to support cellular differe... Read more.
|Fibronectin: Organizing Cell Activity across the ECM
Fibronectin is a glycoprotein found in the extracellular matrix (ECM) that binds to integrins and other components of the ECM such as collagen and fibrin. Under normal physiological conditions, fibronectin is an important factor in cell adhesion, grow... Read more.
|Bad news for stomach cancer: BAMBI protein inhibits gastric carcinoma via TGF-beta/epithelial-mesenchymal transition signaling
By Jamshed Arslan Pharm.D. Gastric carcinoma is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. One of the key features of gastric carcinoma is acidosis, which promotes growth and metastasis of gastric ... Read more.
|Nickel induces migratory and invasive phenotype in human epithelial cells by epigenetically activating ZEB1
By Jamshed Arslan Pharm.D. Nickel (Ni) is a naturally abundant metallic element. It is a major component of stainless steel, coins, and many other items of daily use. Disturbingly, Ni exposure is associated with can... Read more.
