Caveolae are an abundant feature of the plasma membrane of many mammalian cell types, and have key roles in mechano-transduction, metabolic regulation, and vascular permeability. Caveolin and cavin proteins, as well as EHD2 and pacsin 2, are all present in caveolae. How these proteins assemble to form a protein interaction network for caveolar morphogenesis(More)
We studied the function of plasma membrane microdomains defined by the proteins flotillin 1 and flotillin 2 in uropod formation and neutrophil chemotaxis. Flotillins become concentrated in the uropod of neutrophils after exposure to chemoattractants such as N-formyl-Met-Leu-Phe (fMLP). Here, we show that mice lacking flotillin 1 do not have flotillin(More)
We identified a direct interaction between the neuronal transmembrane protein calsyntenin-1 and the light chain of Kinesin-1 (KLC1). GST pulldowns demonstrated that two highly conserved segments in the cytoplasmic domain of calsyntenin-1 mediate binding to the tetratricopeptide repeats of KLC1. A complex containing calsyntenin-1 and the Kinesin-1 motor was(More)
Kinesin motors are required for the export of membranous cargo from the trans-Golgi network (TGN), yet information about how kinesins are recruited to forming transport intermediates is sparse. Here we show that the Kinesin-1 docking protein calsyntenin-1 localizes to the TGN in vivo and directly and specifically recruits Kinesin-1 to Golgi/TGN membranes as(More)
Kinesin motors play crucial roles in the delivery of membranous cargo to its destination and thus for the establishment and maintenance of cellular polarization. Recently, calsyntenin-1 was identified as a cargo-docking protein for Kinesin-1-mediated axonal transport of tubulovesicular organelles along axons of central nervous system neurons. To further(More)
We de…ne pessimistic, respectively optimistic, investors as CEU (Choquet expected utility) decision makers who update their pessimistic, respectively optimistic , beliefs according to a pessimistic (Dempster-Shafer), respectively optimistic , update rule. This paper then demonstrates that, in contrast to optimistic investors, pessimistic investors may(More)
Endocytosis of amyloid-β precursor protein (APP) is thought to represent the major source of substrate for the production of the amyloidogenic Aβ peptide by the β-secretase BACE1. The irreversible nature of proteolytic cleavage implies the existence of an efficient replenishment route for APP from its sites of synthesis to the cell surface. We recently(More)

Consistent with facts for a cross-section of OECD countries, I document that the labor force participation rate of West German mothers with children aged zero to two exceeds the corresponding child care enrollment rate whereas the opposite is true for mothers with children aged three to mandatory school age. I develop a life-cycle model that explicitly(More)
Treatment modalities of chronic plaque psoriasis have dramatically changed over the past ten years with a still continuing shift from inpatient to outpatient treatment. This development is mainly caused by outpatient availability of highly efficient and relatively well-tolerated systemic treatments, in particular BioLogicals. In addition, inpatient(More)
