Synaptic scaffolding molecule (S-SCAM) is a synaptic protein, which harbors five or six PSD-95/Discs large/ZO-1 (PDZ), a guanylate kinase and two WW domains. It interacts with NMDA receptor subunits, neuroligin and beta-catenin, and is involved in the accumulation of neuroligin at excitatory synapses. In this study, we have demonstrated S-SCAM is localized(More)
Membrane-associated guanylate kinase inverted (MAGI)-1 plays a role as a scaffold at cell junctions in non-neuronal cells, while S-SCAM, its neuronal isoform, is involved in the organization of synapses. A search for MAGI-1-interacting proteins by yeast two-hybrid screening of a kidney cDNA library yielded dendrin. As dendrin was originally reported as a(More)
A Ca2+-sensitive electrode was used for determination of the binding strength of Ca2+ to bovine alpha-lactalbumin in 60 mM Tris buffer (pH 7.8-8.5) in the presence of various concentrations of NaCl. The dependence of the apparent binding constant on the concentration of NaCl was consistent with competitive binding of Ca2+ and Na+, and the binding constants(More)
