The Presynaptic Microtubule Cytoskeleton in Physiological and Pathological Conditions: Lessons from Drosophila Fragile X Syndrome and Hereditary Spastic Paraplegias
(Frontiers Media, 2016)
The capacity of the nervous system to generate neuronal networks relies on the establishment and maintenance of synaptic contacts. Synapses are composed of functionally different presynaptic and postsynaptic compartments. ...
Tau regulates the localization and function of End-binding proteins 1 and 3 in developing neuronal cells
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2015-06)
The axonal microtubule-associated protein tau is a well-known regulator of microtubule stability in neurons. However, the putative interplay between tau and End-binding proteins 1 and 3 (EB1/3), the core microtubule plus-end ...
The association of tau-like proteins with vimentin filaments in cultured cells
(Academic Press Inc., 1998)
There is increasing evidence that the different polymers that constitute the cytoskeleton are interconnected to form a three-dimensional network. The macromolecular interaction patterns that stabilize this network and its ...
Binding of dihydroxynaphthyl aryl ketones to tubulin colchicine site inhibits microtubule assembly
Dihydroxynaphthyl aryl ketones 1e5 have been evaluated for their abilities to inhibit microtubule assembly and the binding to tubulin. Compounds 3, 4 and 5 displayed competitive inhibition against colchicine binding, and ...
Visualizing individual microtubules by bright field microscopy
(American Association of Physics Teachers, American Institute of Physics, 2010)
Actin filaments and microtubules in dendritic spines
(International Society for Neurochemistry, 2013-07)
endritic spines are small protrusions emerging from their parent dendrites, and their morphological changes are involved in synaptic plasticity. These tiny structures are composed of thousands of different proteins belonging ...
Demecolcine Effects on Microtubule Kinetics and on Chemically Assisted Enucleation of Bovine Oocytes
(Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., 2009-03-01)
This study aimed to evaluate the effect of demecolcine, a microtubule-depolymerizing agent, on microtubule kinetics; to determine the best concentration of demecolcine as a chemically assisted enucleation agent in metaphase ...
