Microtubule-associated protein 1B interaction with tubulin tyrosine ligase contributes to the control of microtubule tyrosination
Microtubule-associated protein 1B (MAP1B) is the first microtubule- associated protein to be expressed during nervous system development. MAP1B belongs to a large family of proteins that contribute to the stabilization ...
DMAP‐85: A τ‐Like Protein from Drosophila melanogaster Larvae
Abstract: Microtubule‐associated proteins (MAPs) play major regulatory roles in the organization and integrity of the cytoskeletal network. Our main interest in this study was the identification and the analysis of structural ...
Microtubule binding of the Drosophila DMAP-85 protein is regulated by phosphorylation in vitro
The phosphorylation of microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) is thought to be a key factor in the regulation of microtubule (MT) stability. Previously we isolated DMAP-85, a Drosophila MAP shown to be associated with ...
Aminochrome Toxicity is Mediated by Inhibition of Microtubules Polymerization Through the Formation of Adducts with Tubulin
(Springer New York LLC, 2016)
© 2015, Springer Science+Business Media New York.In this study, we investigated the role of adducts formation between aminochrome and tubulin and its interference in microtubules assembly and stability in aminochrome-induced ...
Immunoelectron microscopical detection of tubulins during spermiogenesis in phytophagous bugs (Hemiptera : Pentatomidae)

Lateral motion and bending of microtubules studied with a new single-filament tracking routine in living cells
(Cell Press, 2014-06)
The cytoskeleton is involved in numerous cellular processes such as migration, division, and contraction and provides the tracks for transport driven by molecular motors. Therefore, it is very important to quantify the ...
Microtubules regulate brush border formation
(Wiley-liss, Div John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2018-02)
Most epithelial cells contain apical membrane structures associated to bundles of actin filaments, which constitute the brush border. Whereas microtubule participation in the maintenance of the brush border identity has ...
Microtubule cytoskeleton distribution using fluorescent taxoid in Tetratrichomonas didelphidis
