Members of the kinesin superfamily are microtubule-based motor proteins that transport molecules/organelles along microtubules. We have identified similar internal motor kinesins, Kinesin-13A, from the cotton Gossypium hirsutum and Arabidopsis thaliana. Their motor domains share high degree of similarity with those of internal motor kinesins of animals and(More)
BACKGROUND Fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) is a progressive, late-onset neurodegenerative disease that affects older carriers of premutation (CGG) repeat expansions of the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) gene. Clinical features include intention tremor, gait ataxia, memory loss, peripheral neuropathy, autonomic dysfunction, and(More)
A cDNA encoding a novel protein was cloned from ischemic rat brain and found to be homologous to testis Mea-2 Golgi-associated protein (Golga3). The sequence predicted a 165-kDa protein, and in vitro translated protein exhibited a molecular mass of 165-170 kDa. Because brain ischemia induced the mRNA, and the protein localized to the Golgi apparatus, this(More)
