Transport and membrane integration of polypeptides is carried out by specific protein complexes in the membranes of all living cells. The Sec transport path provides an essential and ubiquitous route for protein translocation. In the bacterial cytoplasmic membrane, the channel is formed by oligomers of a heterotrimeric membrane protein complex consisting of(More)
Tauopathies like the “frontotemporal dementia with Parkinsonism linked to chromosome 17” (FTDP-17) are characterized by an aberrant accumulation of intracellular neurofibrillary tangles composed of hyperphosphorylated tau. For FTDP-17, a pathogenic tau mutation P301L was identified. Impaired mitochondrial function including disturbed dynamics such as(More)
BACKGROUND Mitochondria, the main suppliers of cellular energy, are dynamic organelles that fuse and divide frequently. Constraining these processes impairs mitochondrial is closely linked to certain neurodegenerative diseases. It is proposed that functional mitochondrial dynamics allows the exchange of compounds thereby providing a rescue mechanism. (More)
The glutamate transporter GLT-1 from Rattus norvegicus was expressed at high level in baby hamster kidney (BHK-21) cells by the Semliki Forest Virus expression system. We examined the expressed GLT-1 in the plasma membrane and found that the transporter accumulates in detergent-insoluble lipid-protein assemblies. Freeze-fracture, immunogold labeling, and(More)
