  • The LIM-only protein DRAL/FHL2 binds to the cytoplasmic domain of several alpha and beta integrin chains and is recruited to adhesion complexes [19].

Physical interactions of Lmo1


Other interactions of Lmo1


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Lmo1

  • Our results complete the gene targeting of the LIM-only family in mice and suggest that all four members of this family are important in regulators of distinct developmental pathways [11].
  • Here, we assess this possibility by analysing rhombotin gene expression in mouse development by in situ hybridization of whole embryos, Northern filter hybridization, and a sensitive semiquantitative PCR method [16].
  • Based on protein sequence alignment, TLP is most closely related to the cysteine-rich proteins, a subclass of the family of LIM-only proteins [27].
