The degradation of neurofilament (NF) proteins was examined by immunoblot methods to identify, characterize, and monitor the appearance of immunoreactive breakdown products during the loss of NF triplet proteins. Individual NF proteins and their breakdown products were identified using polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies to NF proteins. NF degradation was(More)
Creation of transgenic (knockout) mice deficient in calpain small (30 kDa) subunit gene was undertaken to clarify the proposed role of the small subunit for calpain proteolytic activity and to gain insight into the importance of the gene in the whole animal. The gene was targeted and disrupted in embryonic stem cells by homologous recombination, and(More)
