The identification of protein-protein interaction networks has often given important information about the functions of specific proteins and on the cross-talk among metabolic and regulatory pathways. The availability of entire genome sequences has rendered feasible the systematic screening of collections of proteins, often of unknown function, aimed to… (More)
The molecular adaptor Fe65 is one of the cytosolic ligands of the Alzheimer's beta-amyloid precursor protein (APP), and this complex is believed to play important roles in mammalian cells. Upon cleavage of APP by specific processing activities, the complex between Fe65 and the APP intracellular domain (AICD) translocates to the nucleus. Experimental… (More)

Non-coding RNAs are much more common than previously thought. However, for the vast majority of non-coding RNAs, the cellular function remains enigmatic. The two long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) genes DLEU1 and DLEU2 map to a critical region at chromosomal band 13q14.3 that is recurrently deleted in solid tumors and hematopoietic malignancies like chronic… (More)
