The microtubule-associated protein tau is essential for microtubule stabilization in neuronal axons. Hyperphosphorylation and intracellular fibrillar formation of tau protein is a pathology found in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains, and in a variety of neurodegenerative disorders referred to as 'taupathies'. In the present study, we investigated how(More)
Insect myosuppressins are a highly conserved sub-family of peptides which are primarily characterized by the ability to suppress contraction of visceral muscles in a variety of insect species. We have isolated a cDNA from the true armyworm, Pseudaletia unipuncta, that encodes a prohormone containing a peptide identical to ManducaFLRFamide. We have shown(More)
