This report concerns the clinicopathological features of 39 cases of a morphologically unique and surgically curable group of neuroepithelial tumors associated with medically intractable partial complex seizures. All were supratentorial and characterized by intracortical location, multinodular architecture, and heterogeneity in cellular composition. The(More)
The microtubule-binding 63-kDa cytoskeleton-linking membrane protein (CLIMP-63) is an integral membrane protein that links the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) to microtubules. Here, we tested whether this interaction is regulated by phosphorylation. Metabolic labeling with (32)P showed that CLIMP-63 is a phosphoprotein with increased phosphorylation during(More)
The subpellicular microtubules of the trypanosome cytoskeleton are cross-linked to each other and the plasma membrane, creating a cage-like structure. We have isolated, from Trypanosoma brucei, two related low-molecular-weight cytoskeleton-associated proteins (15- and 17-kDa), called CAP15 and CAP17, which are differentially expressed during the life cycle.(More)
The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of higher eukaryotic cells is a dynamic network of interconnected membrane tubules that pervades almost the entire cytoplasm. On the basis of the morphological changes induced by the disruption of the cytoskeleton or molecular motor proteins, the commonly accepted model has emerged that microtubules and conventional kinesin(More)
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) RNA and proteins were detected in the brains of several AIDS patients with subacute encephalitis, by in situ hybridization and immunohistology. The majority of infected cells were mononucleated and bore processes. Using single and double immunohistologic procedures, the authors identified these cells as macrophages. The(More)
The patient we describe had cerebellar ataxia, slow eye movements, myoclonus, facial dystonia and signs of spinal cord and peripheral nerve involvement. The patient's mother, brother and sister died from the same disease. Neuropathological examination revealed lesions of olivo-ponto-cerebellar atrophy (OPCA) associated with spinal cord degenerative changes(More)
