Abstract: Filamin A (FLNA) is a large actin-binding cytoskeletal protein that stabilizes actin networks and integrates them with cell membranes. FLNA is therefore important for cell motility and organ development. We recently discovered that a C-terminal fragment of FLNA (FLNACT) can be cleaved off by calpain and stimulate angiogenesis by transporting transcription factors into the nucleus. However, little is known about the role of FLNA in cell types that participate in the pathogenesis of vascular disea... more
