26725982 This study reports an unanticipated function of ROR1 as a scaffold of cavin-1 and caveolin-1, two essential structural components of caveolae.
26086560 Cavin-1 and cavin-2 are strongly expressed within caveolae-like structures within liver sinusoidal endothelial cells of the hepatitis C-related cirrhotic liver and cavin-1 would play a critical role in regulating aspects of caveolin-1.
25942420 Our data support a role for PTRF/cavin-1, through caveolae formation, as an attenuator of the non-caveolar functionality of Cav1 in Gal3-Cav1 signalling and regulation of focal adhesion dynamics and cancer cell migration.
25904680 The presence of caveolae as an anatomic structure is not sufficient to ensure their proper function in patient with PTRF mutation.
25822667 Using in silico and in vitro analysis we show that Cavin-1 is expressed in myogenic Rhabdomyosarcoma tumors and human and primary mouse RMS cultures. Cavin-1 or Cav-1 knockdown led to impairment of cell proliferation and migration.
25721873 this study presents a novel mutation of PTRF from Saudi Arabia and our findings broaden the mutation spectrum of PTRF in the familial CGL4 phenotype.
25588833 cavin3 is recruited to the caveolae coat by cavin1 to interact with caveolin1 and regulate the duration time of caveolae at the plasma membrane.
24812087 In human adipose tissue, PTRF mRNA levels positively correlated with markers of lipolysis and cellular senescence. A negative relationship between telomere length and PTRF mRNA levels was observed in human subcutaneous fat.
24747515 PTRF acts as a modulator in GBM chemoresistance
24473072 Rather than forming a single coat complex containing the three cavin family members, single-molecule analysis reveals an exquisite specificity of interactions between cavin1, cavin2 and cavin3.
