Decreased expression of cortactin in the schizophrenia brain.
New York City, United States. In Neuroreport, Jan 2016
To determine whether the Arp2/3 complex is abnormally expressed in schizophrenia, we measured the protein expression of Arp2 and Arp3, as well as Arp2/3 complex binding partners and associated proteins including cortactin, neuronal-Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP), WASP-family verprolin homologous protein 1 (WAVE1), and Abelson interactor 1 (Abi1) in the superior temporal gyrus of paired schizophrenia and comparison participants.
The 'ins' and 'outs' of podosomes and invadopodia: characteristics, formation and function.
Los Angeles, United States. In Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol, 2011
The key proteins in these structures include the actin regulators cortactin and neural Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (N-WASP), the adaptor proteins Tyr kinase substrate with four SH3 domains (TKS4) and Tyr kinase substrate with five SH3 domains (TKS5), and the metalloprotease membrane type 1 matrix metalloprotease (MT1MMP; also known as MMP14).
