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)
Intracellular vesicle traffic plays an essential role in the establishment and maintenance of organelle identity and biosynthetic transport. We have identified α-taxilin as a binding partner of the syntaxin family, which is involved in intracellular vesicle traffic. Recently, we have found that α-taxilin is over-expressed in malignant tissues including(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)
Myogenesis is required for the development of skeletal muscle. Accumulating evidence indicates that the expression of several genes are upregulated during myogenesis and these genes play pivotal roles in myogenesis. However, the molecular mechanism underlying myogenesis is not fully understood. In this study, we found that β-taxilin, which is specifically(More)
