Cleavage of tubulin at tryptophan residues yielded several peptides, one of which strongly interacted with aldolase as determined by inhibition of aldolase activity. This peptide was identified as the C-terminal, residues 408-451, of the alpha-subunit of tubulin. Peptides with identical sequences to the C-terminal regions of the alpha- and beta-subunits of(More)
The ability of glycolytic enzymes, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), aldolase, pyruvate kinase (PK), and lactate dehydrogenase muscle-type (LDH(M)), to generate interactive microtubule networks was investigated. Bundles have previously been defined as the parallel alignment of several microtubules and are one form of microtubule networks.(More)
Tubulin and microtubules were modified with the protease, subtilisin. The modification reduced the length of alpha- or beta-tubulin by cleaving a peptide fragment from the C-terminals. Generation of alpha'beta'-tubulin, which is cleaved at both the alpha- and beta-subunit terminals, and alpha beta'-tubulin, which is cleaved at the beta-subunit C-terminal,(More)
From a hardware standpoint a heterogeneous architecture such as an SIMD array coupled onto a MIMD system, will yield a powerful solution for real time embedded vision tasks. From a software standpoint there is a need to approach this heterogeneous system in a homogeneous way. We investigated the feasibility of a uniform parallel programming approach on a(More)
