Difference cloning has identified a Villin-like mRNA transcript expressed selectively in peripheral sensory and sympathetic neurons. Pervin, the encoded 820-amino acid protein, has 60% identity with Villin and is the rat homologue of Advillin. Coimmunoprecipitation studies demonstrate that Pervin and actin interact in vivo. Transfection of COS-7 epithelial(More)
Electrophysiological studies of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, and the results of PCR, Northern blot and in situ hybridization analyses have demonstrated the molecular diversity of Na+ channels that operate in sensory neurons. Several subtypes of alpha-subunit have been detected in DRG neurons and transcripts encoding all three beta-subunits are also(More)
