Interactions between microtubules and filamentous actin (F-actin) are essential to many cellular processes, but their mechanisms are poorly understood. We investigated possible roles of the myosin family of proteins in the interactions between filamentous actin (F-actin) and microtubules of budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae with the general myosin(More)
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) and Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) increase risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD). The molecular mechanism for this association remains poorly defined. Here we report in human and rodent tissues that elevated glucose, as found in MetS/T2DM, and oligomeric β-amyloid (Aβ) peptide, thought to be a key mediator of AD, coordinately(More)
