Calmodulin binding to microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) was studied by using three experimental techniques: affinity chromatography, cross-linking, and equilibrium binding. 1) Calmodulin affinity chromatography: both MAP2 and tau proteins were bound to calmodulin affinity columns in the presence of calcium and released with ethylene glycol(More)
The effect of bovine brain calmodulin on the assembly of pure bovine brain tubulin has been examined in the presence and absence of microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs). In the absence of MAPs, calmodulin enhances the rate and extent of polymerization of pure tubulin, probably by sequestering Ca2+ from tubulin since the effect is mimicked by ethylene(More)
NASA intends to send astronauts to a near Earth object (NEO) in or around 2025. This is expected to involve a six month mission with a few weeks stay-time at the NEO. Problems with this concept include lack of abort modes, vulnerability to solar flares, and lack of resupply opportunities. Studies by the authors (the Asteroid Mining Group) and a recent(More)
This paper deals with a six-year experience of group therapy for parents of leukemic children. The group, which includes the hospital staff, strengthens the role of parents, doctors, and nurses. Group therapy is seen as a preventive measure in the sense of working with and partially resolving family stresses. Mourning reactions are dealt with but within(More)
