Kinesin motors are required for the export of membranous cargo from the trans-Golgi network (TGN), yet information about how kinesins are recruited to forming transport intermediates is sparse. Here we show that the Kinesin-1 docking protein calsyntenin-1 localizes to the TGN in vivo and directly and specifically recruits Kinesin-1 to Golgi/TGN membranes as(More)
Non-healing and partially healing wounds are an important problem not only for the patient but also for the public health care system. Current treatment solutions are far from optimal regarding the chosen material properties as well as price and source. Biodegradable polyurethane (PUR) scaffolds have shown great promise for in vivo tissue engineering(More)
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) modulate development, inflammation, and repair in lungs. Tissue inhibitors of MMPs (TIMPs) interact with MMPs, controlling the intensity and nature of the response to injury. Absence of MMP-9, -2, and -8 activities is associated with altered lung inflammation during allergic sensitization. To test the hypothesis that the(More)
