Intermediate filaments (IFs) are major components of the mammalian cytoskeleton and expressed in cell-type-specific patterns. Morphological changes during cell differentiation are linked to IF network remodeling. However, little is known concerning the presence and the role of IFs in embryonic stem (ES) cells and during their differentiation. We have(More)
Thyroid hormones (THs) are essential for brain development, where they regulate gliogenesis, myelination, cell proliferation and protein synthesis. Hypothyroidism severely affects neuronal growth and establishment of synaptic connections. Triiodothyronine (T3), the biologically active form of TH, has a central function in these activities. So, Myosin-Va(More)
