A domain within the tumor suppressor protein APC shows very similar biochemical properties as the microtubule-associated protein tau.

Abstract

The tumor-suppressor protein APC (adenomatous polyposis coli) binds to microtubules and promotes tubulin assembly. In vivo the endogenous APC protein is mainly localized at the end of microtubules that are involved in active cell migration. Since most tumor-specific APC gene mutations lead to the loss of the microtubule binding domain this interaction is… (More)
