Hemidesmosomes: how much plakins do they need?
Freiburg, Germany. In Exp Dermatol, Feb 2016
In stratified and pseudostratified epithelia, the structural components of hemidesmosomes belong to four protein families - plakins (the bullous pemphigoid antigen 1 (BPAG1) and plectin), integrins (α6β4), collagens (collagen XVII) and tetraspanins (CD151) (2).
PRRS virus receptors and their role for pathogenesis.
Urbana, United States. In Vet Microbiol, Jul 2015
At least six cellular molecules have been described so far as putative receptors for PRRSV, and they include heparan sulfate, vimentin, CD151, sialoadhesin (CD169; siglec-1), dendritic cell-specific intercellular adhesion melecule-3-grabbing non-integrin (DC-SIGN; CD209), and CD163 (SRCR, cysteine-rich scavenger receptor).
PRRSV receptors and their roles in virus infection.
Lanzhou, China. In Arch Microbiol, May 2015
Up to now, heparin sulfate, sialoadhesin, CD163, CD151 and vimentin have been identified as the important PRRSV receptors via their involvement in virus attachment, internalization or uncoating.
CD151-A Striking Marker for Cancer Therapy.
Vishākhapatnam, India. In Biomark Cancer, 2014
Cluster of differentiation 151 (CD151) is a member of the mammalian tetraspanin family, which is involved in diverse functions such as maintaining normal cellular integrity, cell-to-cell communication, wound healing, platelet aggregation, trafficking, cell motility and angiogenesis.
Meiosis-specific RNA splicing in yeast.
New Haven, United States. In Cell, 1991
The MER2 gene is transcribed in mitosis as well as meiosis; however, the transcript is spliced efficiently to generate a functional gene product only in meiosis.
