Site-specific recognition of DNA in eukaryotic organisms depends on the arrangement of nucleosomes in chromatin. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, ISW1a and related chromatin remodelling factors are implicated in establishing the nucleosome repeat during replication and altering nucleosome position to affect gene activity. Here we have solved the(More)
Mixed glial cell cultures from neonatal dog cerebellum were harvested daily between 3 and 21 days after seeding and studied with immunocytochemical techniques for the demonstration of myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG) and myelin basic protein (MBP). Both MAG and MBP were detected in the cultures and by means of double labelling techniques shown to be(More)
The ganglioside-induced differentiation-associated protein 1 (GDAP1) is a mitochondrial fission factor and mutations in GDAP1 cause Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. We found that Gdap1 knockout mice (Gdap1(-/-)), mimicking genetic alterations of patients suffering from severe forms of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, develop an age-related, hypomyelinating(More)
