Cytoskeleton社 MTSS1 Promotes AIP4-mediated PD-L1 monoubiquitination: Curtailing Lung Adenocarcinoma Immune Evasion

PD-L1/PD-1 immune therapy for the treatment of cancer has shown tremendous promise; however, there are growing examples of poor response and drug resistance. Many studies have been performed to better understand how PD-L1 is regulated at the genetic, transcription, and translational levels. Recent data by Wang et al. identified a mechanism by which monoubiquitination of PD-L1 via MTSS1/AIP4 dependent mechanisms is critical for PD-L1 expression and lung adenocarcinoma immune evasion. Utilizing immune-compromised mouse models, the group showed that MTSS1 suppressed lung adenocarcinoma progression in a host-immunity-dependent fashion.

MICAL1 Activation By PAK1 Mediates Actin Filament Disassembly

Cytoskeleton Inc. is proud to be a part of this excellent collection of protocols and methods.

The cytoskeleton and its associated molecular motors and binding proteins perform numerous cellular processes ranging from migration and division to mechanosensing; thus, enabling the cells to move, change shape, and grow. The cytoskeleton includes the semiflexible actin filaments, rigid microtubules, and intermediate filaments that provide structural and mechanical support to the cells...

RHO GTPase family regulation of actin has been studied for many years and has been shown to be a critical regulator of actin. Recent data by Olson and colleagues identify a regulatory link between PAK1 kinase, a downstream effector of Cdc42, and the actin-oxidizing protein MICAL1. The group performed preliminary pull-down studies with a panel of RHO GTPases and downstream effectors in combination with MICAL1.
