A novel potential approach to treat cancer: Targetting NUAK2 to block oncogenic YAP/TAZ signaling during tumorigenesis


Time-lapse imaging of Clover-YAP WT (first movie) and 5SA (second movie) in MDA-MB231 cells. Localization of Clover-YAP WT (wild type) and 5SA (mutant at all five LATS targeting sites) was monitored before and after addition of NUAK2 specific inhibitor, WZ4003. Note that the nuclear signal is gradually lost after addition of WZ4003 in cells expressing YAP-WT but not affected in YAP-5SA. Images were captured every 10 min for 2 hours. […]

Attisano lab discovers a new player in the Hippo signalling pathway

The Hippo pathway is a conserved intracellular signaling pathway with important roles in various aspects of development and homeostasis in animals. Defects in Hippo pathway regulation are associated with various types of cancers. Factors such as cell-cell contact, cell morphology and G-protein coupled receptors have been shown to regulate the Hippo pathway but the mechanisms are not very well understood.

In work published in the latest edition of the EMBO Journal, the Attisano lab describe a new regulator of this pathway, ARHGEF7 (also known as β-Pix). […]
