Mitochondrial dynamics and inherited peripheral nerve diseases.
Milano, Italy. In Neurosci Lett, Jul 2015
Microtubules, neurofilaments, and chaperones such as heat shock proteins (HSPs) also have a fundamental role in mitochondrial transport and mutations in some of related encoding genes cause peripheral neuropathy (TUBB3, NEFL, HSPB1, HSPB8, HSPB3, DNAJB2).
Biomarkers for efficacy of adjuvant chemotherapy following complete resection in NSCLC stages I-IIIA.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Eur Respir Rev, Jun 2015
A statistically significant prognostic impact was reported for: iNTR, TUBB3, RRM1, ERCC1, BRCA1, p53, MRP2, MSH2, TS, mucin, BAG-1, pERK1/2, pAkt-1, microRNA, TopIIA, 15-gene profile, 92-gene profile, 31-gene profile and 14-gene profile.
Mutations in α- and β-tubulin encoding genes: implications in brain malformations.
Lecco, Italy. In Brain Dev, Mar 2015
Different mutations in α/β-tubulin genes (TUBA1A, TUBA8, TUBB2A, TUBB4A, TUBB2B, TUBB3, and TUBB) might alter the dynamic properties and functions of microtubules in several ways, effecting a reduction in the number of functional tubulin heterodimers and causing alterations in GTP binding and disruptions of the binding of other proteins to microtubules (motor proteins and other microtubule interacting proteins).
MicroTUB(B3)ules and brain development.
Cambridge, United States. In Cell, 2010
Tischfield et al. (2010) now report that mutations in the tubulin-encoding gene TUBB3 have a striking impact on microtubule dynamics in neurons, resulting in a diverse set of disease symptoms.
