Two isoforms of alpha-actinin 1 (ACTN1) known to be generated by tissue-specific alternative splicing of mutually exclusive exons have been described. Muscle cells express ACTN1 containing the smooth muscle exon (SM), while other (non-muscle) cells contain the non-muscle exon (NM). In this report, we describe the characterization of a novel ACTN1 isoform in(More)
Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors (mAChR) are involved in learning and memory but their molecular function in these processes is not fully understood. In this study, the signal transduction pathway coupling mAChR activation to induction of the activity-regulated cytoskeleton-associated gene (ARC) was examined. ARC was first identified as an effector(More)
We examined the effect of insulin on the expression of the activity-regulated cytoskeleton-associated gene (ARC), an effector immediate early gene with a proposed role in memory formation. In human SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells, application of insulin leads to dramatic increase in ARC mRNA and protein levels. Inhibition experiments reveal, that p21(ras),(More)
