Polymorphisms in Genes Involved in EGFR Turnover Are Predictive for Cetuximab Efficacy in Colorectal Cancer.
München, Germany. In Mol Cancer Ther, Oct 2015
The following SNPs involved in EGFR degradation were analyzed in a screening cohort of 108 patients treated with cetuximab in the chemorefractory setting: c-CBL (rs7105971; rs4938637; rs4938638; rs251837), EPS15 (rs17567; rs7308; rs1065754), NAE1 (rs363169; rs363170; rs363172), SH3KBP1 (rs7051590; rs5955820; rs1017874; rs11795873), SGIP1 (rs604737; rs6570808; rs7526812), UBE2M (rs895364; rs895374), and UBE2L3 (rs5754216).
Do Alix and ALG-2 really control endosomes for better or for worse?
Grenoble, France. In Biol Cell, 2006
Mammalian Alix may have a similar function and has been shown to bind to lyso(bis)phosphatidic acid, ESCRT (endosomal sorting complex required for transport) proteins, endophilins and CIN85 (Cbl-interacting protein of 85 kDa), which are all main regulators of the endosomal system.
Listeria hijacks the clathrin-dependent endocytic machinery to invade mammalian cells.
Paris, France. In Nat Cell Biol, 2005
Furthermore, RNA interference-mediated knock-down of major components of the endocytic machinery (for example, clathrin, dynamin, eps15, Grb2, CIN85, CD2AP, cortactin and Hrs), inhibit bacterial entry, establishing that the endocytic machinery is key to the bacterial internalization process.
