The Arabidopsis Homolog of the Mammalian OS-9 Protein Plays a Key Role in the Endoplasmic Reticulum-Associated Degradation of Misfolded Receptor-Like Kinases

The endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) is a highly conserved mechanism to remove misfolded membrane/secretory proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). While many of the individual components of the ERAD machinery are well characterized in yeast and mammals, our knowledge of a plant ERAD process is rather limited. Here, we report a functional study of an...

Brassinosteroid actions in plants

Recent studies on dwarf mutants of Arabidopsis, tomato and pea have provided convincing evidence that brassinosteroids are a unique class of plant hormones that are essential for normal plant growth. Detailed metabolic analyses of these mutants, coupled with thorough molecular and biochemical studies of their corresponding genes and gene products, are essential for a better...

Four-and-a-half LIM protein 2 promotes invasive potential and epithelial-mesenchymal transition in colon cancer

Background and Aims: Cancer invasion and metastasis may associate with the phenotype transition called epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT). We aim to evaluate the impact of four-and-a-half LIM protein 2 (FHL2) on EMT and invasion of colon cancer. Methods: The functional role of FHL2 in EMT was determined by overexpression or small interfering RNA-mediated depletion of FHL2...
