The mutations that cause Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA) lead to photoreceptor cell death at an early age, causing childhood blindness. To unravel the molecular basis of LCA, we analyzed how mutations in LCA5 affect the connectivity of the encoded protein lebercilin at the interactome level. In photoreceptors, lebercilin is uniquely localized at the cilium(More)
The herbal formulation Sinpo-Tang (SPT) has long been used for various allergic diseases. We investigated the effect of SPT on the mast cell-mediated anaphylactic reactions in vivo and in vitro murine models. SPT dose dependently inhibited compound 48/80-induced ear swelling response and histamine release. SPT (0.001-0.1g/kg) significantly inhibited passive(More)
