Aggregation of α-synuclein can be promoted by the tubulin polymerization-promoting protein/p25α, which we have used here as a tool to study the role of autophagy in the clearance of α-synuclein. In NGF-differentiated PC12 catecholaminergic nerve cells, we show that de novo expressed p25α co-localizes with α-synuclein and causes its aggregation and(More)
One of the major pathological hallmarks of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) is the accumulation of a pathogenic (scrapie) isoform (PrP(Sc)) of the cellular prion protein (PrP(C)) primarily in the central nervous system. The synthetic prion peptide PrP106-126 shares many characteristics with PrP(Sc) in that it shows PrP(C)-dependent(More)
