In response to ionizing radiation (IR), cells delay cell cycle progression and activate DNA repair. Both processes are vital for genome integrity, but the mechanisms involved in their coordination are not fully understood. In a mass spectrometry screen, we identified the adenosine triphosphate-dependent chromatin-remodeling protein CHD4 (chromodomain(More)
The distribution of the microtubule-associated protein MAP2 in cultured hippocampal neurons was studied using immunocytochemistry with monoclonal antibodies. MAP2 was preferentially localized to dendritic, but not axonal, processes even in single isolated cells which developed without making intercellular contacts. Hence regional differences in the(More)
The distribution and subcellular localization of tubulin and MAP2 in brain tissue were analyzed by immunocytochemistry with monoclonal hybridoma antibodies prepared against Chinese hamster brain tubulin and MAP2. We examined three anti-tubulin hybridoma antibodies (Tu3B, Tu9B, Tu12) specific for beta-tubulin, and two anti-MAP2 hybridoma antibodies(More)
To determine whether dendritic spines contain actin, we evaluated the immunocytochemical localization of actin in the hippocampal formation and cerebral cortex of the rat. Monoclonal hybridoma antibodies were prepared against adult quail breast muscle actin. The culture supernatant of two cell lines (QAB1 and QAB2) was examined. Both antibodies bound only(More)
Seven monoclonal antibodies specific for mammalian beta-tubulin demonstrate the microtubule cytoskeleton of Toxoplasma gondii and Leishmania donovani by indirect immunofluorescence microscopy. Immunoblots of T. gondii and L. donovani proteins separated by SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis confirm the specificity of the monoclonal antibodies for(More)
We have examined the distribution of microtubule-associated protein 2 (MAP2) in the lumbar segment of spinal cord, ventral and dorsal roots, and dorsal root ganglia of control and beta,beta'-iminodipropionitrile-treated rats. The peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique was used for light and electron microscopic immunohistochemical studies with two monoclonal(More)
The electrophoretic pattern of the large microtubule-associated protein, MAP2, changes during rat brain development. Immunoblots of NaDodSO4 extracts obtained from the cerebral cortex, cerebellum, and thalamus at 10-15 days after birth reveal only a single electrophoretic species when probed with any of three MAP2 monoclonal antibodies. By contrast, adult(More)
Using the peroxidase-antiperoxidase staining technique with monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies against actin, we found that, in beta,beta'-iminodipropionitrile (IDPN)-treated axons, actin immunoreactivity was codistributed with segregated microtubules and membranous organelles in the central region and excluded from the peripheral axoplasm occupied by(More)
