25818806 FEZ1 promotes HIV-1 infection in non-neuronal cells via direct binding to the capsid and kinesin-1 to move the virus into the cell nucleus.
25818806 The ability of exogenously expressed FEZ1 binding to kinesin-1 to promote early HIV-1 infection, leading to the movement of HIV-1 CA core to the nucleus
25818806 RNAi-mediated FEZ1 depletion inhibits early infection, with virus particles exhibiting bi-directional motility but no net movement to the nucleus
24116125 Studies indicate that FEZ1 (fasciculation and elongation protein zeta 1), SCOCO (short coiled-coil protein) and kinesins (kinesin heavy chain) are involved in biological transport process.
24098481 SCOC forms a stable homogeneous complex with the coiled coil domain of FEZ1. SCOC dimerization and the SCOC surface residue R117 are important for this interaction.
22832604 Short Disrupted-in-Schizophrenia (DISC)1 splice variants show reduced or no binding to NDEL1 and phosphodiesterase (PDE)4B proteins but fully interact with FEZ1 and GSK3beta.
22451907 FEZ1 operates as a kinesin adaptor for the transport of Stx, with cargo loading and unloading being regulated by protein kinases.
22099459 Genetic association analysis of two independent cohorts of schizophrenia patients and healthy controls reveals an epistatic interaction between FEZ1 and disrupted in schizophrenia (DISC)1.
22017218 The data of this study suggested that FEZ1 may play important roles in human astrocytes, and that mood stabilizers might exert their cytoprotective and mood-stabilizing effects by inducing FEZ1 expression in astrocytes.
21408165 FEZ2 interacted with 59 proteins and that of these only 40 interacted with FEZ1.
