Oncogenic Smurf1 Promotes PTEN Wild-Type Glioblastoma Growth by Mediating PTEN Ubiquitylation

Smurf1 promotes cell growth and colony formation by accelerating cell cycle and aberrant signaling pathways. In addition, the authors showed that Smurf1 ubiquitylates and degrades phosphatase and tensin homolog.
