Jeong Suk Kang et al.
Scientific reports, 9(1), 7679-7679 (2019-05-24)
MYH9, a widely expressed gene encoding nonmuscle myosin heavy chain, is also expressed in podocytes and is associated with glomerular pathophysiology. However, the mechanisms underlying MYH9-related glomerular diseases associated with proteinuria are poorly understood. Therefore, we investigated the role and

Medical oncology (Northwood, London, England), 37(10), 88-88 (2020-09-10)
Non-muscle myosin IIA heavy chain (MYH9) has been implicated in many physiological and pathological functions including cell adhesion, polarity, motility to cancer. However, its role in melanoma remains unexplored. The aim of our study was to evaluate the role of
Shuli Liang et al.
PloS one, 6(4), e18409-e18409 (2011-05-03)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important regulators that play key roles in tumorigenesis and tumor progression. A previous report has shown that let-7 family members can act as tumor suppressors in many cancers. Through miRNA array, we found that let-7f was downregulated
Bo Yang et al.
Nature materials, 19(2), 239-250 (2019-10-30)
A common feature of cancer cells is the alteration of kinases and biochemical signalling pathways enabling transformed growth on soft matrices, whereas cytoskeletal protein alterations are thought to be a secondary issue. However, we report here that cancer cells from
Bing Zhao et al.
Nature communications, 6, 7166-7166 (2015-05-15)
Lgr5+ stem cells are crucial to gut epithelium homeostasis, and therapies targeting these cells hold promise for treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. Here we report that the non-muscle-myosin-II (NMII) heavy chain Myh9 accumulates at epithelial injury sites in mice distal colon
Nisha Bte Mohd Rafiq et al.
The Journal of cell biology, 216(1), 181-197 (2016-12-23)
Podosomes represent a class of integrin-mediated cell-matrix adhesions formed by migrating and matrix-degrading cells. We demonstrate that in macrophage-like THP1 cells and fibroblasts stimulated to produce podosomes, down-regulation of the G-protein ARF1 or the ARF1 guanine nucleotide exchange factor, ARNO
Chii J Chan et al.
Biophysical journal, 108(8), 1856-1869 (2015-04-23)
The cellular cytoskeleton is crucial for many cellular functions such as cell motility and wound healing, as well as other processes that require shape change or force generation. Actin is one cytoskeleton component that regulates cell mechanics. Important properties driving

Nature materials, 18(6), 638-649 (2019-05-23)
The interrelationship between microtubules and the actin cytoskeleton in mechanoregulation of integrin-mediated adhesions is poorly understood. Here, we show that the effects of microtubules on two major types of cell-matrix adhesion, focal adhesions and podosomes, are mediated by KANK family
