26751642 This study determined the crystallographic structure of human Afadin in complex with LGN.
26662512 Kinocilium is essential for proper localization of Lgn, as well as Gai and aPKC, suggesting that cilium function plays a role in positioning of apical proteins critical for hearing.
26398908 results fit a model whereby LGN influences interphase microtubule dynamics in endothelial cells to regulate migration, cell adhesion, and sprout extension, and reveal a novel non-mitotic role for LGN in sprouting angiogenesis
25664792 A crystal structure of Frmpd4-bound LGN in an oxidized form is also reported, although oxidation does not appear to strongly affect the interaction with Frmpd4.
24165937 Hepatocyte Par1b defines lumen position in concert with the position of the astral microtubule anchoring complex LGN-NuMA to yield the distinct epithelial division phenotypes.
23907121 LGN is required for mitotic spindle rotation but not orientation maintenance.
23494849 one homozygous frameshift GPSM2 variants c.1473delG was identified in three Chudley-McCullough syndrome Dutch patients.
23389635 Data indicate that dynein- and astral microtubule-mediated transport of Galphai/LGN/nuclear mitotic apparatus (NuMA) complex from cell cortex to spindle poles.
22987632 Results show compound heterozygous mutations in the GPSM2 gene, in affected members of a family with Chudley-McCullough syndrome, co-segregate in the family as an autosomal recessive trait.
22977735 Studies indicate that the Inscuteable (Insc)and NuMA are mutually exclusive interactors of LGN.
22690686 Overexpression of LGN decreases the activity of cellular sGC, whereas knockdown of LGN mRNA and protein correlated with increased sGC activity
22578326 GPSM2 is required for orienting the mitotic spindle during cell division in multiple tissues, suggesting that the sensorineural hearing loss and characteristic brain malformations of CMS are due to defects in asymmetric cell divisions during development
22074847 mInsc-LGN interaction is vital for stabilization of LGN and for intracellular localization of mInsc.
21348867 A novel truncating mutation of GPSM2 is associated with autosomal recessive non-syndromic hearing loss.
20933426 During mitosis, Pins is mislocalized to the apical surface in the absence of Par3 or by inhibition of atypical protein kinase C.
20602914 Identification of GPSM2 as essential to the development of normal hearing suggests dysregulation of cell polarity as a mechanism underlying hearing loss.
20589935 Upregulation of GPSM2 is associated with breast cancer.
20508983 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20479129 Ric-8A and Gi alpha recruit LGN, NuMA, and dynein to the cell cortex to help orient the mitotic spindle.
20056645 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
15632202 binding between Lgl2 and LGN play a role in mitotic spindle organization through regulating formation of the LGN.NuMA complex; Lgl2 forms a Lgl2.Par-6.aPKC.LGN complex, which responds to mitotic signaling to establish normal cell division
11832491 LGN is expressed in neuronal, astroglial, and microglial cultures
