ZEB1 encodes a zinc finger transcription factor that represses T-lymphocyte-specific IL2 gene (MIM 147680) expression by binding to a negative regulatory domain 100 nucleotides 5-prime of the IL2 transcription start site (Williams et al., 1991 [PubMed 1840704]).[supplied by OMIM]
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.
Beta Catenin in Cell Adhesion and T-cell Signaling Beta Catenin is a cytosolic, 88 kDa intracellular protein that tightly associates with cell surface cadherin glycoproteins. It is one member of the catenin family that includes alpha Catenin, beta Catenin, and gamma Catenin. Colocalization studies usi... Read more.
CD63: is it pro-metastatic or anti-metastatic? CD63 is a type II membrane protein belonging to tetraspanin superfamily and it play key roles in the activation of several cellular signaling cascades along with acting as TIMP1 receptor. It is expressed by activated platelets, monocytes,... Read more.
