Butt E. , Abel K. , Krieger M. , Palm D. , Hoppe V. , Hoppe J. , Walter U. cAMP- and cGMP-dependent protein kinase phosphorylation sites of the focal adhesion vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP) in vitro and in intact human platelets. J. Biol. Chem. 1994; 269(20).
In addition, activation of Ras/Raf/MEK/ERK pathway in HCC may be due to down-regulation of Ras inhibitors Sprouty and the Sp routy- re lated protein with Ena/vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein homology-1 d omain (Spred-1) and Spred-2 proteins [92,93]. It has been shown that the expression of Spred-1 and -2 in human HCC tissues is frequently decreased, in comparison to adjacent non-tumorous tissues.
Over the past decade, knock-out mouse studies, genetic manipulation, and large sequencing projects has aided our understanding of the function of vertebrate Fat cadherins in tissue development and disease. The majority of studies of this family have focused on Fat1, with evidence now showing it can bind enable (ENA)/Vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein.
