Heat shock protein 27 (Hsp27), a molecular chaperone ubiquitously expressed in many cell types, has been shown to play a role in protecting neurons from cellular stresses. Unlike adult DRG neurons in vitro, neonatal DRG neurons require NGF for survival; withdrawal of NGF results in apoptosis of a majority of neonatal neurons. We hypothesized that Hsp27(More)
The cellular response to nerve growth factor (NGF) is mediated by two structurally unrelated receptors, TrkA and p75 neurotrophin receptor (p75NTR), which have been shown to interact resulting in reciprocal modulation of function. In this study, we have examined the modulation of p75NTR protein expression by specific TrkA autophosphorylation sites in the(More)
Laminin (LN), an extracellular matrix component, is a key factor in promoting axonal regeneration, coordinately regulating growth in conjunction with trophic signals provided by the neurotrophins, including nerve growth factor (NGF). This study investigated potential interactions between the LN and NGF-mediated signaling pathways in PC12 cells and primary(More)
Neurotrophins exert their biological effects via p75NTR and Trk receptors. Functional interplay between these two receptors has been widely explored with respect to p75NTR enhancing the activation and signalling of Trk, but few studies address the bidirectional aspects. We have previously demonstrated that the expression of p75NTR can be differentially(More)
The nucleolus is a membrane-less organelle formed through liquid-liquid phase separation of its components from the surrounding nucleoplasm. Here, we show that nucleophosmin (NPM1) integrates within the nucleolus via a multi-modal mechanism involving multivalent interactions with proteins containing arginine-rich linear motifs (R-motifs) and ribosomal RNA(More)
