Much indirect evidence suggests that the interconnections of actin microfilaments with the microtubule system are mediated by microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs). In this study we provide new data to support the interaction of a specific tubulin-binding domain on tau with actin in vitro. In actin polymerization assays, the synthetic peptide(More)
Estramustine-phosphate (EMP), a phosphorylated conjugate of estradiol and nor-nitrogen mustard binds to microtubule-associated proteins MAP-2 and tau. It was shown that this estramustine derivative inhibits the binding of the C-terminal tubulin peptide beta-(422-434) to both MAP-2 and tau. This tubulin segment constitutes a main binding domain for these(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this work is to present our endoscopic neuroanatomical findings of a series of myelomeningocele and hydrocephalus patients, treated with endoscopic third ventricular cisternostomy (ETVC), in order to describe ventricular configuration abnormalities in this group of patients, in which this neurosurgical procedure has limited(More)
