moesin


Also found in: Acronyms.

moesin

A protein that belongs to the ERM (that is, ezrin, radixin, and moesin) group of the band 4.1 superfamily of proteins that assist in the establishment of submembrane cytoskeletal scaffolds to maintain membrane architecture and functional capacity. Moesin is required for the accurate organization of the cytoskeletal component of the apical membranes.

moesin

Membrane-organising extension spike protein. A protein encoded by MSN on chromosome Xq11.1 which is localised to filopodia and other membranous protrusions that are important for cell–cell recognition, signalling and cell movement.

Associated with this, AJs are disrupted in these cells, which is mediated by the inactivation of merlin, a member of the ezrin, radixin, and moesin (ERM) family of proteins that links actin filaments to AJ complexes [116].
Tumor suppressive microRNA-133a regulates novel targets: moesin contributes to cancer cell proliferation and invasion in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
The ezrin/radixin/moesin (ERM) family is composed of ezrin, radixin, and moesin. These proteins act as linkers between the actin cytoskeleton and plasma membrane proteins and play important roles in cell adhesion, polarity, and migration [3].
Il se perfectionne ensuite aupres de maEtres prestigieux tels Manuel Rosenthal a Paris, Moesin a Saint-Petersbourg et Daniel Barenboim a Berlin.
Another in vitro study found that kinetin, EGCG (a component found in green tea), all-trans-retinoic acid and selenium induced changes in the aging-related proteins moesin, rho guanosine-5'-diphosphate-dissociation inhibitor, and actin, providing a possible mechanism for their role in preventing skin aging (16).
E-Cadherin, zyxin, and moesin were identified as genes differentially expressed in these clusters.
It is most recently shown that I/R-induced Mst1 activation is mediated by neurofibromin 2 (NF2, Merlin), a 4.1, ezrin, radixin, moesin (FERM) domain-containing protein responsible for membrane and actin cytoskeleton association [184].
TNF[alpha] promotes the expression of CD44, the principal transmembrane adhesion receptor for hyaluronic acid, and moesin phosphorylation by protein kinase C (PKC), which leads to the pericellular interaction of hyaluronic acid and CD44.
Ezrin, also identical to cytovillin or villin 2, is a component of cell-surface structures belonging to the ezrin/radixin/ moesin (ERM) protein family that acts as a membrane organizer and linker between the plasma membrane and cytoskeleton [10, 11].
The protein kinase A-anchoring protein moesin is bound to pigment granules in melanophores.
