26977009 Results implicate a contributory role of WAVE1 and -3 to the metastatic phenotype of PC-3 cells through their interaction with the ARP2/3 complex.
25823022 stabilization of WASF3 function occurs through its interaction with ATAD3A and GRP78, which may provide a bridge between the ER and mitochondria, allowing communication between the two organelles
25745180 HIV-1-mediated effects on podosomes and migration involve Nef-HCK interaction, and HCK-mediated phosphorylation of WASP at podosomes
25661390 WAVE3 is pivotal in controlling oncogenic phenotypes of human hepatocellular carcinoma cells.
25527710 HIV-1-mediated effects on podosomes and migration involve Nef-HCK interaction, and HCK-mediated phosphorylation of WASP at podosomes
25378074 WAVE3 promotes epithelial-mesenchymal transition of gastric cancer through upregulation of Snail.

25289936 miR-217 functions as a tumor-suppressive miRNA and inhibits the osteosarcoma tumorigenesis through targeting WASF3.
24197660 Upregulated WAVE3 expression is essential for TGF-beta-mediated EMT and metastasis of triple-negative breast cancer cells.
23677069 these results define a novel signaling network whereby JAK2/STAT3 signaling creates a feed-forward loop to raise activated WASF3 levels that promote cancer cell motility.

22909346 WAVE3-depleted breast cancer cells move more slowly but more persistently on a 2-dimensional matrix. They typically only show one lamellipod. WAVE3 appears to have no role in driving invasiveness. Lamellipodial persistence is not crucial in 3-dimensions.
22806308 MMP-9 and WAVE3 were over-expressed in colorectal cancer tissues compared with normal mucosa.
22581642 demonstrate WASF3 is a HIF1A-regulated gene and suggests a mechanism to explain the observation of elevated expression of WASF3 in advanced stage tumors
22315230 HSP90 and HSP70 proteins are essential for stabilization and activation of WASF3 metastasis-promoting protein.
21544801 coordinated expression patterns of the WASF3 metastasis promoter gene and the KISS1 metastasis suppressor gene appear to exert their influence through inhibition of NF-kappaB signaling, which in turn regulates MMP-9 production facilitating invasion.
21105030 The study also identifies a critical role for WAVE3, downstream of miR-31, in the invasion-metastasis cascade.
19801681 Studies identified a novel mechanism for the regulation of WAVE3 expression in cancer cells, which controls the invasive properties and morphology of cancer cells associated with their metastatic potential.
19395286 WAVE3 is pivotal in controlling the invasiveness of prostate cancer cells.
17623672 the activation of WAVE3 to promote actin remodeling is enhanced by the c-Abl-mediated tyrosine phosphorylation of WAVE3.
15907837 The WAVE3 is a member of the WASP/WAVE family of proteins, which play a critical role in the regulation of actin polymerization, cytoskeleton organization, and cell motility.
15826941 WAVE3-mediated migration in MDA-MB-231 cells via lamellipodia formation is activated downstream of PI3K and induced by PDGF
15752430 all three Scar/WAVE isoforms behave similarly and are likely to participate in the same kinds of protein complexes that regulate actin assembly
15670045 during megakaryocytic differentiation, platelets expressed WAVE-1 and WAVE-2, whereas WAVE-3 expression was hardly to be detected. WAVE-3 expression was not changed by the differentiation
15280206 the 3 WAVE isoforms exhibit common and distinct features and may potentially be involved in the regulation of actin cytoskeleton in platelets
12185600 patient with ganglioneuroblastoma carries an apparently balanced t(1:13)(q21:q12) reciprocal translocation. Positional cloning of the translocation breakpoint on chromosome 13 resulted in the mapping of the breakpoint between coding exon 2 and 3 of WAVE3
