27328518 Nectin-4 expression, when compared with control group, was higher in endometriotic lesions of patients having ovarian endometriosis and peritoneal endometriosis. This difference was significant in the endometrium of patients having endometriosis.
26949052 Nectin-4 is critical for gallbladder cancer cell progression via PI3K/AKT pathway activation of Rac1.
26617807 The data presented in this study suggested that nectin-4 may be a therapeutic target for systemic lupus erythematous through affecting the cell apoptosis
25926640 In airway epithelial cells, measles virus spread requires the nectin-4/afadin complex and is based on cytoplasm transfer between columnar cells.
25888293 Nectin-4 is a significant prognostic predictor, and may play a critical role in pancreatic cancer. Nectin-4 may be novel therapeutic target for pancreatic cancer.
25529316 The present study described clinical investigation of the EDSS1 identified in a large consanguineous family; DNA sequence analysis revealed a novel homozygous nonsense mutation (181C>T, p.Asp61*) in the PVRL4 gene.
25275122 Authors show that the same key residues in the BC and FG loops of nectin-4 govern binding to the measles virus attachment protein hemagglutinin (H) and cell entry, nectin-4 homodimerization, and heterodimerization with nectin-1.
25019423 Ovarian tissue expression and serum nectin 4 appear to be potential markers in ovarian cancer.
24577405 data outline a synergistic action of nectin-1 and -4 in the early steps of AJ formation and implicate this interaction in modulating the Rac1 signaling pathway
24335299 Ablation of nectin4 binding compromises CD46 usage by a hybrid vesicular stomatitis virus/measles virus.
23760251 Thus, while nectin-4 and CD46 interact functionally with the measles virus H protein beta4-beta5 hydrophobic groove, SLAM merely covers it.
23682311 Transformation of breast cancer cells is dependent on PVRL4.
23202587 structure of the membrane-distal domain of nectin-4 in complex with measles virus hemagglutinin (MV-H; structure shows nectin-4 binds the MV-H beta4-beta5 groove exclusively via its N-terminal IgV domain; the contact interface is dominated by hydrophobic interactions
23174504 We show that human nectin4 is fully functional as a canince distemper virus receptor.
22926846 Data suggest that expression of nectin-4 is up-regulated in eutopic endometrium of patients with endometriosis compared with control subjects.
22869128 crystals of nectin-4 diffracted to 1.8 A resolution and belonged to space group P2(1), with unit-cell parameters a = 33.1, b = 51.7, c = 56.9 A, beta = 94.7 degrees
22048310 measles virus targets nectin-4 to emerge in the airways
21901103 Measles virus infection reduced PVRL4 surface expression in MCF7 cells, a property that is characteristic of receptor-associated viral infections.
21526486 The findings of study suggest that increased expression of Nectin-4 may indicate a worse prognosis in breast cancer patients.
21346770 Sequence analysis revealed a homozygous missense mutation (c.635C>G; p.Pro212Arg) in the recently reported PVRL4 gene causing EDSS1
21333831 Ectoderma dysplasia-syndactyly syndrome. Second example of "nectinopathy".
20959669 nectin 4 may serve as a potential biomarker that helps discriminate benign gynecologic diseases from ovarian cancer in a panel with CA125.
20691405 Ectodermal dysplasia-syndactyly syndrome is the second known "nectinopathy" caused by mutations in a nectin adhesion molecule.
19679554 Nectin-4 might play a significant role in lung carcinogenesis, and it should be a new candidate serum and tissue biomarker, as well as a therapeutic target.
17474988 Nectin-4 was not detected in normal breast epithelium; by contrast Nectin-4 was expressed in ductal breast carcinoma.
15784625 the active form of TACE is overexpressed in breast tumors and may indicate that TACE is responsible for Nectin-4 shedding not only in vitro but also in vivo
