Hypotransferrinemia (hpx/hpx) is a genetic defect in mice resulting in <1% of normal plasma transferrin (Tf) concentrations; heterozygotes for this mutation (+/hpx) have low circulating Tf concentrations. These mice provide a unique opportunity to examine the role of Tf in Fe and Mn transport in the brain. Twenty weanling wild-type BALB/cJ mice, 15 +/hpx(More)
Microtubule targeting agents (MTAs) often lead to treatment limiting and life threatening side effects, including chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). The frequency of severe CIPN varies among different MTAs. Since the microtubule binding interactions and mechanisms of action also vary among MTAs, we hypothesized that these distinct mechanisms(More)
