Processing and nuclear localization of CRMP2 during brain development induce neurite outgrowth inhibition

Collapsin response mediator proteins (CRMP) are believed to play a crucial role in neuronal differentiation and axonal outgrowth. Among them, CRMP2 mediates axonal guidance by collapsing growth cones during development. This activity is correlated...

Regulation of PI3K signalling by the phosphatidylinositol transfer protein PITP-alpha during axonal extension in hippocampal neurons

Phosphatidylinositol transfer proteins (PITPs) mediate the transfer of phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) or phosphatidylcholine (PtdCho) between two membrane compartments, thereby regulating the interface between signalling, phosphoinositide (PI)...

Protein phosphatase 4 catalytic subunit regulates Cdk1 activity and microtubule organization via NDEL1 dephosphorylation

Protein phosphatase 4 catalytic subunit (PP4c) is a PP2A-related protein serine/threonine phosphatase with important functions in a variety of cellular processes, including microtubule (MT) growth/organization, apoptosis, and tumor necrosis factor...

Primary peripheral T cells become susceptible to 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-Dioxin (TCDD)-mediated apoptosis in vitro upon activation and in the presence of dendritic cells

While the toxic effects of TCDD on T cells in vivo have been well characterized, attempts to reproduce these findings in vitro have not been successful. In the current study, we examined whether activation or the presence of dendritic cells (DCs)...

The insulator factor CTCF controls MHC class II gene expression and is required for the formation of long-distance chromatin interactions

Knockdown of the insulator factor CCCTC binding factor (CTCF), which binds XL9, an intergenic element located between HLA-DRB1 and HLA-DQA1, was found to diminish expression of these genes. The mechanism involved interactions between CTCF and class...

Redefining the role of metallothionein within the injured brain: Extracellular metallothioneins play an important role in the astrocyte-neuron response to injury

Proteins which are protective after brain injury are classically thought to exert their effect within the expressing cell. The astrocytic metallothioneins (MT) are one example and are thought to act via intracellular free radical scavenging and heavy...

Lys (K)63-linked polyubiquitination of IRAK-1 is required for IL-1 receptor- and Toll-like receptor-mediated NF-kappaB activation

Stimulation through the IL-1 receptor (IL-1R) and some Toll-like receptors (TLRs) induces ubiquitination of TRAF6 and IRAK-1, signaling components required for NF-kappa B and MAP kinase activation. Here we show that although TRAF6 and IRAK-1 acquired...

Glucocorticoid-related signaling effects in vascular smooth muscle cells

Mineralocorticoid receptor blockade protects from angiotensin II-induced target-organ damage. 11beta-Hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 2 protects the mineralocorticoid receptor from activation by glucocorticoids; however, high glucocorticoid...

Flotillin-dependent clustering of the amyloid precursor protein regulates its endocytosis and amyloidogenic processing in neurons

The flotillins/reggie proteins are associated with noncaveolar membrane microdomains and have been implicated in the regulation of a clathrin- and caveolin-independent endocytosis pathway. Endocytosis is required for the amyloidogenic processing of...

NFAR-1 and -2 modulate translation and are required for efficient host defense

We report here that the alternatively spliced nuclear factors associated with double-stranded RNA, NFAR-1 (90 kDa) and -2 (110 kDa), are involved in retaining cellular transcripts in intranuclear foci and can regulate the export of mRNA to the...
