The microtubule-associated protein MAP1B is known to have important roles in neuronal development, particularly during neuronal migration and axonogenesis, but its precise molecular actions are unknown. We used RNA interference silencing of protein expression to specifically knock down MAP1B in cultured embryonic rat cortical neurons. Reduction of MAP1B in… CONTINUE READING
