High impact information on JUP

  • Western blot analysis indicated that protein levels of VE-cadherin, alpha-catenin, and plakoglobin decreased, whereas beta-catenin levels increased after 8.5 hours of shear stress [1].
  • As cell shape change reached completion (24 to 48 hours), all protein levels were upregulated except for plakoglobin, which remained below control levels [1].
