We have previously shown that calpain promotes myoblast fusion by acting on protein kinase C-alpha and the cytosolic phosphorylated form of MARCKS. In other cell types, various isoforms of calpain, PKC alpha and MARCKS were found associated with caveolae. These vesicular invaginations of the plasma membrane are essential for myoblast fusion and(More)
MARCKS (myristoylated alanine-rich C kinase substrate) is a major cytoskeletal protein substrate of PKC (protein kinase C) whose cellular functions are still unclear. However numerous studies have implicated MARCKS in the stabilization of cytoskeletal structures during cell differentiation. The present study was performed to investigate the potential role(More)
Several studies have already demonstrated that micro- and milli-calpains (CAPN 1-CAPN 2), calcium-dependent intracellular cysteine-proteases are involved in many biological phenomenon including muscle growth and development. More particularly, recent studies have demonstrated that milli-calpain is implicated in myoblast fusion. Moreover, in primary muscle(More)
Caveolae are specialised RAFTs (detergent-resistant membrane microdomains enriched in cholesterol and glycosphingolipids). Caveolin, the main caveolae protein, is essential to the organisation of proteins and lipids, and interacts with numerous mediating proteins through a 'Caveolin Scalfolding Domain'. Consequently, caveolae play a major role in signal(More)
