Erbin, Lano, Scribble, and Densin-180 belong to LAP (leucine-rich repeats and PDZ domain) adaptor proteins involved in cell signaling pathways. Previously, we identified Erbin, Lano, and Scribble, but not Densin-180, in muscle cells, where they are involved in regulating the aggregation of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors in vitro. Here, we analyzed their(More)
Canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling plays an important role in myogenic differentiation, but its physiological role in muscle fibers remains elusive. Here, we studied activation of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in adult muscle fibers and muscle stem cells in an Axin2 reporter mouse. Axin2 is a negative regulator and a target of Wnt/β-catenin signaling. In adult(More)
Hall mark in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the aggregation of amyloid-b (Ab) peptide into oligomers and fibrils. Nowadays, the soluble oligomers are believed to be the most neurotoxic species, probably the causative agents in AD. Amyloid-beta fibrils on the other hand may serve as reservoirs for small toxic oligomers. While it is well known from experiment,(More)
