The R7 family of RGS proteins (RGS6, -7, -9, -11) is characterized by the presence of three domains: DEP, GGL, and RGS. The RGS domain interacts with Galpha subunits and exhibits GAP activity. The GGL domain permanently associates with Gbeta5. The DEP domain interacts with the membrane anchoring protein, R7BP. Here we provide evidence for a novel(More)
Alpha-synuclein plays a key role in the pathogenesis of many neurodegenerative diseases. To date, its cellular role has yet to be determined, although it has been proposed to be connected to calcium and G protein-mediated dopamine signaling. Alpha-synuclein is known to bind strongly to model membrane surfaces where it may interact with other(More)
