Research Grants & Projects

 
Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology: Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research(特別推進研究)
Project Year: 2008 - 2012    Investigator(s): Masatoshi TAKEICHI
We investigated the mechanisms of the cooperation between cadherin superfamily members and cytoskeletal proteins. The findings include 1) EPLIN is involved in the epithelial to mesenchymal transition of junctional architecture, 2) Fat4 and Dachsou...

Project Year: 2003 - 2006    Investigator(s): Masatoshi TAKEICHI
1) αN-catenin is a cadherin-associated protein. We found that this protein is essential for the stability of synaptic contacts in hippocampal neurons.2) Fat1 is a member of the cadherin superfamily. We showed that this large non-classic cadherin i...
