Canonical or non-canonical Wnt signaling? Insights from osteoblastic cells -- Dr. Fanxin Long
 
时   间:2009年8月18日,星期二上午10:00
地   点:岳阳路320号,生科大楼300会议室
人:Dr. Fanxin Long (Associate Professor of Medicine and Developmental Biology, Washington University School of Medicine)
 
Abstract:
Wnt signaling is conventionally divided into the canonical pathway that utilizes b-catenin to control gene expression, versus noncanonical mechanisms that involve other signaling intermediates such as the Rho family of small GTPases (e.g., Rac1) to control cell morphology and behavior.  Dr. Fanxin Long will discuss their recent studies that Wnt-induced Rac1 and subsequent JNK activation controls the nuclear localization of b-catenin through direct and specific phosphorylation of the b-catenin molecule.  These results therefore challenge the conventional division of canonical versus noncanonical pathways.
