α-Taxilin, a binding partner of the syntaxin family, is a candidate tumor marker. To gain insight into the physiological role of α-taxilin in normal tissues, we examined α-taxilin expression by Western blot and performed immunochemical analysis in the murine gastrointestinal tract where cell renewal vigorously occurs. α-Taxilin was expressed in the majority(More)
Tumor susceptibility gene 101 (TSG101) was initially identified in fibroblasts as a tumor suppressor gene but subsequent studies show that TSG101 also functions as a tumor-enhancing gene in some epithelial tumor cells. Although previous studies have unraveled diverse biological functions of TSG101, the precise mechanism by which TSG101 is involved in(More)
Membrane traffic plays a crucial role in delivering proteins and lipids to their intracellular destinations. We previously identified α-taxilin as a binding partner of the syntaxin family, which is involved in intracellular vesicle traffic. α-Taxilin is overexpressed in tumor tissues and interacts with polymerized tubulin, but the precise function of(More)
