Study used an all-heavy-atom structure-based model to study vinculin activation by talin in a high-tension context mechanically driven by F-actin, showed that vinculin activation may proceed from an intermediate state stabilized by partial talin-vinculin association. There is a low-force regime and a high-force regime where vinculin activation is dominated by two different pathways with distinct responses to force.
Vinculin head-tail interaction is required on soft substrates to destabilize vinculin and talin in FAs, and to allow hMSCs branching. Another module involves paxillin and FAK, which soft substrates also destabilize, but independently of vinculin head-tail interaction. This multi-modularity may be key to allow a versatile response to complex biomechanical cues.
The central role of talin and vinculin in cell adhesions suggests that the disintegration of the tissue in atherosclerosis could be partially driven by downregulation of these genes, leading to loosening of cell-ECM interactions and remodeling of the tissue.

We identified mutations in VCL associated with Short segment Hirschsprung disease. Correction of this mutation in induced pluripotent stem cells using CRISPR/Cas9 editing, as well as the RET G731del mutation that causes Hirschsprung disease with total colonic aganglionosis, restored enteric neural crest cell function.
This review discusses the current understanding of the roles of vinculin in cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesions. Emphasis is placed on the how vinculin is recruited, activated and regulated. [review]
Study predicted the structure of the MAPK1-vinculin binding interface using a combination of flexible docking and molecular dynamics simulations, and confirmed that the MAPK1-vinculin interaction is mechanically regulated, and implicated a change in the vinculin D3-D4 cleft size upon vinculin activation as the basis for the conformational selectivity of MAPK1 binding toward open vinculin.

The VCL-encoding protein was involved in cardiomyopathy that associated with hypertension, therefore our results suggest the rs4746172 of VCL may be a novel target for clinical interventions to reduce CVD risk by regulating blood pressure in male Chinese
Three novel genes were identified as recurrently mutated; MYCN, MYO5B and VCL, and mutations in these genes were exclusively found in malignant sympathetic paraganglioma tumors.
roles and mechanisms of phospholipids in regulating the structure and function of vinculin and of its muscle-specific metavinculin splice variant.
Upon actin engagement, the N-terminal "strap" and helix 1 are displaced from the vinculin tail helical bundle to mediate actin bundling.
This study defined a plastic relationship between vinculin-mediated tension and adhesion complex area that controls fundamental cell-matrix adhesion properties.
Analysis showed that ITGB4 and VCL were upregulated in exosomes derived from taxane-resistant prostate cancer cells suggesting them as useful markers for progression of prostate cancer associated with taxane-resistance.
vinculin, present in the joints of anti-citrullinated protein antibody (ACPA)(+) rheumatoid arthritis patients, was identified as an autoantigen targeted by ACPA and CD4(+) T cells.
The activation of vinculin by stretched talin induces a positive feedback that reinforces the actin-talin-vinculin association.
Study show that zebrafish contain two homologous vinculin isoforms, of which the sequence of key functional domains is conserved with several higher vertebrate. Loss of both zygotic vcla and maternal contribution of vcla did not result in notable defects, while the additional loss of zygotic vclb is lethal only after embryonic stages. These data indicate that embryonic development in zebrafish can occur without vinculin.
Results suggest that myosin VI and vinculin form a molecular apparatus that generates cohesive cell-cell contacts in cultured mammalian epithelia.

Binding of vinculin to the R1-R3 region of the talin rod is important for focal adhesion stability.
These data demonstrate that Src-mediated phosphorylation is necessary for vinculin activation, and that phosphorylation controls cytoskeletal mechanics by regulating force transmission between the actin cytoskeleton and focal adhesion proteins.

Vinculin is a cytoskeletal protein associated with cell-cell and cell-matrix junctions, where it is thought to function as one of several interacting proteins involved in anchoring F-actin to the membrane. Defects in VCL are the cause of cardiomyopathy dilated type 1W. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene, but the biological validity of some variants has not been determined.
