The kinetics of neurosteroid binding to recombinant human microtubule-associated protein 2C (rhMAP2C) and neurosteroid regulation of MAP2C-stimulated tubulin assembly were studied. In a quartz crystal microbalance assay, progesterone-BSA at 1-10 nM showed concentration-dependent binding to rhMAP2C, and this binding was competitively inhibited by pregnenolone or progesterone. However, no progesterone-BSA binding to N-terminal 71 amino acid residues rhMAP2C was found. In an rhMAP2C-stimulated… CONTINUE READING
