The crosstalk between microtubules and actin is essential for cellular functions. However, mechanisms underlying the microtubule-actin organization by cross-linkers remain largely unexplored. Here, we report that tau, a neuronal microtubule-associated protein, binds to microtubules and actin simultaneously, promoting in vitro co-organization and coupled(More)
The axonal microtubule-associated protein tau is a well-known regulator of microtubule stability in neurons. However, the putative interplay between tau and End-binding proteins 1 and 3 (EB1/3), the core microtubule plus-end tracking proteins, has not been elucidated yet. Here, we show that a cross-talk between tau and EB1/3 exists in developing neuronal(More)
Proper regulation of microtubule dynamics is essential for cell functions and involves various microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs). Among them, end-binding proteins (EBs) accumulate at microtubule plus ends, whereas structural MAPs bind along the microtubule lattice. Recent data indicate that the structural MAP tau modulates EB subcellular localization(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short, 22–25 nucleotide long transcripts that may suppress entire signaling pathways by interacting with the 3’-untranslated region (3’-UTR) of coding mRNA targets, interrupting translation and inducing degradation of these targets. The long 3’-UTRs of brain transcripts compared to other tissues predict important roles for brain(More)
Tau is a major microtubule-associated protein (MAP) mainly expressed in the brain. Tau binds the lattice of microtubules and favors their elongation and bundling. Recent studies have shown that tau is also a partner of end-binding proteins (EBs) in neurons. EBs belong to the protein family of the plus-end tracking proteins that preferentially associate with(More)
