26358398 ODAM induced RhoA activity. ODAM-mediated RhoA signalling resulted in actin filament rearrangement, increased cell adhesion and inhibited the migration/invasion of MCF7 cells. These results suggest that ODAM expression maintains their adhesion, resulting in the prevention of their metastasis via the regulation of RhoA signalling in breast cancer cells.
23648148 Our studies demonstrate that ectopic ODAM expression in melanoma cell lines suppresses growth and migratory activity in these cells, while eliciting elevated PTEN expression and suppression of AKT activity.
22387195 We propose that ODAM has diverse functions that vary with protein location in various cell lines. Nuclear ODAM appears to be associated with MMP-20 regulation and tumorigenesis. Additional functions may take place in cytoplasm and extracellular matrix.
20572917 The expression of APIN at an early time-point following disruption of periodontal integrity suggests that this protein may be part of the cascade of events leading to the activation of ERM during periodontal healing and regeneration
18484335 Confirmation of the amyloidogenic potential of ODAM has resulted from analyses of four other cases where we found, in addition, a 74-residue segment specified by exon 4.
18472969 Data suggest that ODAM is a developmental antigen that has an essential role in tooth maturation and in the pathogenesis of certain odontogenic and other epithelial neoplasms
17647262 The protein sequences deduced from the cloned cDNA for rat, mouse, pig, and human were aligned together with those obtained from four other mammal genomes. Apin is highly conserved in mammals.
14647039 Calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor-associated amyloid consists of a unique and previously undescribed protein that we provisionally designate APin.
