Mouse Lines with Fluorescently Labelled Membrane Proteins Regulating Cellular Motility and Membrane Trafficking
Cell motility and membrane trafficking play important roles in regulating cell division, cell migration, cell death and autophagy. Impairment of these processes can result in enhanced cell proliferation and survival and increased migration and invasion leading to cancer. Several proteins involved in cell motility and membrane trafficking have been shown to be dysregulated in various cancers. There is therefore a need for development of animal models for studying the roles of these proteins in cancer and their responses to drug treatment in vivo.
