In a Hungarian family with severe decrease in triosephosphate isomerase (TPI) activity, 2 germ line–identical but pheno-typically differing compound heterozy-gote brothers inherited 2 independent (Phe240Leu and Glu145stop codon) mutations. The kinetic, thermodynamic, and associative properties of the recombi-nant human wild-type and Phe240Leu mutant enzymes(More)
TPPP/p25 is a brain-specific protein, which induces tubulin polymerization and microtubule (MT) bundling and is enriched in Lewy bodies characteristic of Parkinson's disease [Tirián et al. (2003) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 100, 13976-13981]. We identified two human gene sequences, CG1-38 and p25beta, which encoded homologous proteins, that we termed p20(More)
Although tumors on the surface of the skin are considered to be easily recognizable, neglected advanced skin neoplasms are encountered even in the 21st century. There can be numerous causes of the delay in the diagnosis: fear of the diagnosis and the treatment, becoming accustomed to a slowly growing tumor, old age, a low social milieu, and an inadequate(More)
Sirtuins are a highly conserved class of NAD(+)-dependent lysine deacylases. The human isotype Sirt2 has been implicated in the pathogenesis of cancer, inflammation and neurodegeneration, which makes the modulation of Sirt2 activity a promising strategy for pharmaceutical intervention. A rational basis for the development of optimized Sirt2 inhibitors is(More)
The disordered Tubulin Polymerization Promoting Protein (TPPP/p25), a prototype of neomorphic moonlighting proteins, displays physiological and pathological functions by interacting with distinct partners. Here the role of the disordered N- and C-termini straddling a middle flexible segment in the distinct functions of TPPP/p25 was established, and the(More)
The hallmarks of Parkinson's disease and other synucleinopathies, Tubulin Polymerization Promoting Protein (TPPP/p25) and α-synuclein (SYN) have two key features: they are disordered and co-enriched/co-localized in brain inclusions. These Neomorphic Moonlighting Proteins display both physiological and pathological functions due to their interactions with(More)
Melanoma often recurs in patients after the removal of the primary tumor, suggesting the presence of recurrent tumor-initiating cells that are undetectable using standard diagnostic methods. As cell fusion has been implicated to facilitate the alteration of a cell's phenotype, we hypothesized that cells in the peritumoral stroma having a stromal phenotype(More)

BACKGROUND The similar genetic background of a pair of twins, and the similar environmental impacts to which they are exposed allow an exact and objective investigation of various constitutional and environmental factors in naevus development. As far as we are aware, this is the first published survey that simultaneously examines cutaneous and ocular(More)
