The 74-kDa intermediate chains (IC74) of the cytoplasmic dynein complex are believed to be involved in the association of dynein with membranous organelles. While each dynein molecule is thought to have two or three IC74 subunits, at least six different IC74 protein isoforms were found in dynein from brain. Therefore we investigated the relationships of the(More)
Dynamin 1 (D100) is a microtubule-activated GTPase that is believed to play a role in the early steps of receptor-mediated endocytosis. Previous studies on the characterization of the Drosophila dynamin gene homolog, known as shibire, suggest that this protein may also participate in the formation of neuronal processes. To understand the role of rat brain(More)
Cytoplasmic dynein is the microtubule minus-end-directed motor for the retrograde axonal transport of membranous organelles. Because of its similarity to the intermediate chains of flagellar dynein, the 74-kDa intermediate chain (IC74) subunit of dynein is thought to be involved in binding dynein to its membranous organelle cargo. Previously, we identified(More)
Histone deacetylase inhibitors (HDACi) induce tumour cell cycle arrest and/or apoptosis, and some of them are currently used in cancer therapy. Recently, we described a series of powerful HDACi characterized by a 1,4-benzodiazepine (BDZ) ring hybridized with a linear alkyl chain bearing a hydroxamate function as Zn(++)--chelating group. Here, we explored(More)
This note summarizes some mathematical relations between the probability distributions for the states of a network of binary units and a subnetwork thereof, under an assumption of symmetry. These relations are standard results of probability theory, but seem to be rarely used in neuroscience. Some of their consequences for inferences between network and(More)
