26764407 Disease causing mutations in inverted formin 2 regulate its binding to G-actin, F-actin capping protein (CapZ alpha-1) and profilin 2.
26354229 Pfn2 suppresses the recruitment of HDAC1 to Smad2 and Smad3 promoters, increasing their expression, and, in turn, enhancing TGFB1 induced epithelial-mesenchymal transformation and VEGF and CTGF production.
25964982 Therefore, this study indicates that profilin 2 affects the metastatic potential and stemness of colorectal CSCs by regulating EMT- and stemness-related proteins.
23898208 HIV-1 Tat downregulates the expression of profilin 2 (PFN2) in human primary T cells
23827010 effects of profilin-1 and profilin-2, the two major isoforms of profilin, on actin cytoskeletal regulation, motility, and invasion of breast cancer cells
21725608 Oral squamous cell carcinomas with weak PFN2 expression were associated with a significantly worse prognosis than strongly expressed tumours.
18573880 A signaling pathway from ROCK1 to profilin controls polyglutamine protein aggregation.
17382517 These findings raise the possibility that Rgl3 mediates interaction between Ras/Rap-family proteins and profilin II, an important activator of actin polymerization.
