Molecular cloning of XTP, a tau-like microtubule-associated protein from Xenopus laevis tadpoles.

Abstract

The microtubules of the mammalian nervous system are stabilised by several microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs), including the tau and MAP-2 protein families. The most prominent feature of mammalian tau and MAP-2 proteins is a common and highly homologous microtubule-binding region consisting of three or four imperfect tandem repeats. In this paper we… (More)
