To investigate the pathogenic role of connexin-32 (Cx32) mutation in X-linked dominant Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMTX), dual whole-cell voltage-clamp recordings and tracer coupling were performed to investigate functional properties of wild-type and 22 CMTX mutant Cx32 proteins expressed in N2A cells. Ten mutant Cx32 proteins either formed defective(More)
The physiological importance of connexin-26 (Cx26) gap junctions in regulating auditory function is indicated by the finding that autosomal recessive DFNB1 deafness is associated with mutations of the Cx26 gene. To investigate the pathogenic role of Cx26 mutation in recessive hearing loss, four putative DFNB1 Cx26 mutants (V84L, V95M, R127H, and R143W) were(More)
The major heparin-binding protein secreted by PC12 cells was purified from conditioned medium. Amino-terminal sequencing of the purified protein identified it as secretogranin I/chromogranin B (SgI/ChmB). The protein showed the same electrophoretic mobility and biochemical characteristics as previously reported for SgI/ChmB and could be purified in high(More)
An epitope-specific antibody directed against the first 16 amino acids of the beta amyloid protein (anti-BP16) immunoprecipitated the secreted form of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) from the conditioned medium of PC12 cells. This antibody caused neurite retraction in differentiated PC12 cells and inhibited cell-substratum adhesion in many neuronal and(More)
