A novel role for Scribble & Dlg in cell protrusions.

Grant number: DP0770031 | Funding period: 2007 - 2009

Completed

Abstract

Dlg and Scribble are recently discovered proteins that are required during development, immune regulation, neural signalling and tumour suppression. Understanding how they work will enable the development of diagnostic and therapeutic tools that have the potential to influence an enormous range of diseases, from cancer to immunodeficiencies and autoimmune diseases. Researchers at the PeterMac perform world-leading research into the biology of Scribble and Dlg, and their role in cancer biology and immune function. The mechanistic insight provided by this project will continue that tradition, and facilitate translation of our basic research into clinical applications in important disease areas..
