New role for the E3 ligase E6AP in the control of cell motility and invasion
Grant number: 1049179 | Funding period: 2013 - 2015
Cell motility and invasion are fundamental process in normal cellular functions, however, when deregulated they can lead to metastatic cancer, a leading cause of cancer mortality and morbidity worldwide. Detailed understanding of the mechanisms governing these processes is essential for the development of new targets to prevent metastatic cancer. We discovered a protein that control these processes, which renders it an important target to investigate.
