  • recruited to the centrosome during cell cycle progression
  • basic FUNCTION
  • focal adhesion-associated signaling protein that undergoes a striking relocalization to the spindle at mitosis
  • cell-cycle regulated proteine kinase required for regulation of centrosome structure at the G/M transition
  • playing a central coordinating role for tyrosine-kinase-based signaling related to cell adhesion
  • may be an important linking element between extracellular signaling and regulation of the cytoskeleton
  • playing an important role in the pathophysiology of rheumatoid arthritis
  • regulating activation of AURKA and NEK at the centrosome
  • enhanced invasion in vitro and metastasis in vivo of both normal and transformed melanocytes
  • with ARHGAP22, DOCK3, WASF2, are key molecules regulating RAC1 and RHO signaling that determine the mode of movement driving melanoma cell metastasis
  • promotes the migration of neural crest cells in a graded manner and suggest a role for retinoic acid in the control of NEDD9 expression levels (
  • required for VEGF-mediated head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) cell migration and invasion, consistent with its recent identification as a metastatic regulator (
  • act as scaffolds to regulate protein complexes controlling migration and chemotaxis, apoptosis, cell cycle, and differentiation, and is linked to a role in progenitor cell function
  • important role for CAS proteins in cell-cell adhesion signaling in development
  • role of NEDD9 as a mediator of the canonical Wnt/CTNNB signaling pathway for cell proliferation, migration, and tumorigenesis, as well as an important player in colorectal tumorigenesis and progression
  • new role for CAS proteins in cell-cell adhesion signaling in cancer

    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • component of the cell division control machinery
  • CAS scaffolding proteins (NEDD9, BCAR1, and CASS4) regulate cell migration, division and survival, and are often deregulated in cancer
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • PTK2
  • NICAL
  • interacting with RHOA (impairs M-phase progression by disrupting the RhoA activation cycle)
  • interacting with SH2D3C (constitutively bound to NEDD9 in B cells and this association is required for NEDD9 serine/threonine phosphorylation)
  • novel Wnt signaling target
  • cell & other
