Purification of developmentally regulated avian 400-kDa intermediate filament associated protein. Molecular interactions with intermediate filament proteins and other cytoskeleton components.

IFAPa-400, a 400-kDa developmentally regulated protein thought to be associated with intermediate filaments, has been purified from chick embryo hearts to investigate its interaction with vimentin and other IF proteins and to identify other cellular components to which this cytoskeletal protein associates. Previous studies suggested that this protein was… (More)
