Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disorder associated with mutations in TSC1, which codes for hamartin, or TSC2, which codes for tuberin. The brain is one of the most severely affected organs, and CNS lesions include cortical tubers and subependymal giant cell astrocytomas, resulting in mental retardation and seizures. Tuberin and(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex, an autosomal dominant disease caused by mutations in either TSC1 or TSC2, is characterized by the development of hamartomas in a variety of organs. The proteins encoded by TSC1 and TSC2, hamartin and tuberin, respectively, associate with each other forming a tight complex. Here we show that hamartin binds the neurofilament light(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex is an autosomal dominant multisystem disorder, characterized by the development of hamartomas in multiple organs, primarily the skin, heart, kidney, and brain. The tuberous sclerosis genes, TSC1 and TSC2, encode hamartin and tuberin, respectively. Employing specific antibodies for hamartin and tuberin, we analyzed the expression(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by hamartomas in multiple organs, notably the brain and kidneys. The disease is caused by mutations in TSC1 or TSC2 genes, coding hamartin and tuberin, respectively. Immunofluorescence analysis of tuberin and hamartin performed here demonstrates that both proteins are(More)
