IL-6-type cytokines bind to plasma membrane receptor complexes containing the common signal transducing receptor chain gp130 that is ubiquitously expressed in most tissues including the heart. The two major signalling cascades activated by the gp130 receptor, SHP2/ERK and STAT pathways, have been demonstrated to play important roles in cardiac development,(More)
ALCAM is a cell adhesion molecule that is present on extending axons and has been shown to be crucial for elongation and navigation of retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axons. In the present study, we show that ALCAM mRNA is present in axonal growth cones of RGCs in vivo and in vitro, and that translation of ALCAM occurs in RGC growth cones separated from their(More)
The mic2 mutation dominantly blocks formation of mannosyl-diinositolphosphorylceramide, the most abundant sphingolipid of the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Interestingly, lack of mannosyl-diinositolphosphorylceramide is not lethal but is compensated for by increased amounts of inositolphosphorylceramide and mannosyl-inositolphosphorylceramide in the(More)
