Immunofluorescence mapping demonstrates that the NG2 proteoglycan is invariably expressed by the mural cell component of mouse neovascular structures. This pattern is independent of the developmental mechanism responsible for formation of the vasculature (vasculogenesis or angiogenesis). Thus, NG2 is expressed in the embryonic heart by cardiomyocytes, in(More)
The tyrosine phosphatase PTP-MEG2 is targeted by its amino-terminal Sec14p homology domain to the membrane of secretory vesicles. There it regulates vesicle size by promoting homotypic vesicle fusion by a mechanism that requires its catalytic activity. Here, we identify N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor (NSF), a key regulator of vesicle fusion, as a(More)
We describe a novel tunable approach for the synthesis of carbon nanotube-silica nanobead composites. The control of nanotube morphology and bead size coupled with the versatility of silica chemistry makes these structures an excellent platform for the development of biosensors, or for optical, magnetic and catalytic applications.
Stimulus-induced secretion of bioactive polypeptides is a fundamental aspect of the immune system. Secretory proteins are synthesized in the endoplasmic reticulum and are transported through the Golgi apparatus to the trans-Golgi network, where they are sorted into transport vesicles that bud off and fuse into condensing vacuoles, which subsequently undergo(More)
