Characterisation of the Non-Canonical Translation Initiation Factor eIF4E-3 as a Merlin Interacting Protein in Drosophila melanogasterDownload
Merlin is a tumour suppressor protein, the loss of which is linked to the inherited nervous system tumour syndrome Neurofibromatosis type 2 as well as sporadic tumour development. It is related to the ERM (ezrin-radixin-moesin) protein family, which is involved in linking the cytoskeleton to...
Mutations in the NF2 gene lead to the disease Neurofibromatosis Type II which is characterized by the formation of multiple tumours in the central nervous system. The NF2 gene encodes the protein Merlin. Merlin interacts with a number of different proteins and these interactions may be important...
