Aquaporin-3 (AQP3) and aquaporin-4 (AQP4) are homologous proteins expressed in the basolateral plasma membrane of kidney collecting duct principal cells, where they mediate the exit pathway for apically reabsorbed water. Although both proteins are localized to the same plasma membrane domain, it is unknown if they are sorted together in the Golgi, or arrive(More)
The 219-residue protein p25α stimulates the fibrillation of α-synuclein (αSN) in vitro and colocalizes with it in several α-synucleinopathies. Although p25α does not fibrillate by itself under native conditions in vitro, αSN-free p25α aggregates have also been observed in vivo in, for example, multiple system atrophy. To investigate which environmental(More)
P25alpha is a protein normally expressed in oligodendrocytes and subcellular relocalization of p25alpha occurs in multiple system atrophy, Parkinson's disease and Lewy body dementia along with ectopic expression in neurons. Moreover, it accumulates in Lewy body inclusions with aggregated alpha-synuclein and is a potent stimulator of alpha-synuclein(More)
The parkin gene encodes an E3 ubiquitin ligase and loss of function mutations herein are the most frequent cause of early-onset Parkinson's disease. Reports have suggested that aggregation of mutant protein is the cause of the loss of function. We established stably transfected SH-SY5Y dopaminergic cell lines expressing wild-type and mutant parkin proteins.(More)
Parkinson's disease is characterized by preferential degeneration of the dopamine-producing neurons of the brain stem substantia nigra. Imbalances between mechanisms governing dopamine transport across the plasma membrane and cellular storage vesicles increase the level of toxic pro-oxidative cytosolic dopamine. The microtubule-stabilizing protein p25α(More)
