Core Tip

Core Tip: Actin dynamics-related protein scinderin (SCIN) was found to be significantly upregulated in glioma, and high SCIN expression was associated with advanced tumor grade and wild-type isocitrate dehydrogenase. Furthermore, silenced-SCIN cells exhibited decreased proliferation, migration, and invasion. Besides, knockdown of SCIN inhibited RhoA/focal adhesion kinase signaling to promote F-actin depolymerization in glioma cells.
