Bioactive Excreted/Secreted Products of Entomopathogenic Nematode Heterorhabditis bacteriophora Inhibit the Phenoloxidase Activity during the Infection

with No Comments

Insects 2020, 11(6), 353; https://doi.org/10.3390/insects11060353 ABSTRACT: Entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) are efficient insect parasites, that are known for their mutualistic relationship with entomopathogenic bacteria and their use in biocontrol. EPNs produce bioactive molecules referred to as excreted/secreted products (ESPs), which have … Read More

Elsevier Collection of Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Psychology, https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-12-809324-5.24159-X ABSTRACT: The discovery of magnetic sensitivity in invertebrates such as Drosophila, the cockroach Periplaneta americana, or the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans make us reconsider our intuitive and possibly too anthropocentric views about the … Read More

The Rho guanine nucleotide exchange factor Trio is required for neural crest cell migration and interacts with Dishevelled

with No Comments

Development 2020 147: dev186338 ABSTRACT: Directional migration during embryogenesis and tumor progression faces the challenge that numerous external signals need to converge to precisely control cell movement. The Rho guanine exchange factor (GEF) Trio is especially well suited to relay … Read More

CD20 is dispensable for B-cell receptor signaling but is required for proper actin polymerization, adhesion and migration of malignant B cells

with No Comments

PLoS One. 2020 Mar 25;15(3):e0229170. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0229170. ABSTRACT: Surface protein CD20 serves as the critical target of immunotherapy in various B-cell malignancies for decades, however its biological function and regulation remain largely elusive. Better understanding of CD20 function may help … Read More
