Suppression of α-catenin and adherens junctions enhances epithelial cell proliferation and motility via TACE-mediated TGF-α autocrine/paracrine signaling Journal Article uri icon



  • The loss of adherens junctions elevates autocrine TGF-α signaling in a TACE-dependent manner. Keratinocyte epithelial sheets depend on this signaling to propagate ERK activity for proliferation and motility signaling.
