Latest Beta-catenin Stories
A newly-discovered process used by the dividing cells in worms to make sure that the processes of gene expression is properly coupled to cell division to ensure that the organism can develop as expected – a finding that could also have implications for cancer research in humans.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine report that a protein called beta-catenin plays a critical, and previously unappreciated, role in promoting recovery of stricken hematopoietic stem cells after radiation exposure.
Activation of beta-catenin, the primary mediator of the ubiquitous Wnt signaling pathway, alters the immune system in lasting and harmful ways.
Two gene alterations pair up to promote the growth of leukemia cells and their escape from anti-cancer drugs.
Scientists know that cells in all higher organisms cells need to bind to each other for the development, architecture, maintenance and function of tissues.
In a new study appearing this month in the Journal of Neuroscience, researchers have unlocked the complex cellular mechanics that instruct specific brain cells to continue to divide.

The impact and influence of thirty years of research into the Wnt/beta-catenin signaling pathway are highlighted in a special issue of The EMBO Journal.
Researchers reporting in the April Cell Stem Cell, a Cell Press publication, have found a way to stop leukemia stem cells in their tracks.
