  • In addition, we show that the interactions of ILK with alpha- and beta-parvin are mutually exclusive [8].
  • We were surprised to find that loss of alpha-parvin, but not that of beta-parvin, markedly stimulated Rac activation and enhanced lamellipodium formation [8].
  • The immunoreactivity of affixin was reduced in sarcolemma of MM and LGMD2B muscles, although the total amount of the affixin protein was normal [5].
