The 14-3-3 protein belongs to a family of 30-kD proteins originally identified by two-dimensional analysis of brain protein extracts. Recently, the detection of the 14-3-3 protein in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is utilized as a highly reliable test for the premortem diagnosis of prion diseases such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. For the initial step, to clarify the biological implication of the CSF 14-3-3 protein in these diseases, its expression was investigated in neural tissues and cultures…

Detection of the 14-3-3 protein in the cerebrospinal fluid of Japanese multiple sclerosis patients presenting with severe myelitis
The 14-3-3 protein in multiple sclerosis: a marker of disease severity
TLDR
The immunoblot analysis of 14-3-3 protein in the CSF could be a useful marker to identify a subgroup of DD patients with high risk of developing severe disability, and was correlated in the MS patients with a more severe clinical phenotype during a 10-month mean clinical follow-up.
CSF detection of the 14-3-3 protein in unselected patients with dementia
TLDR
The 14-3-3 test is not valid for discriminating between Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease and non-CreutzfeldT–J Jakob disease in unselected patients with dementia.
14-3-3 proteins and zeta isoform containing neurofibrillary tangles in patients with Alzheimer’s disease
TLDR
Molecular, as well as topographical, dissection of 14-3-3 proteins will provide an improved understanding of this molecule in normal and pathological conditions.
14-3-3 proteins in neurodegeneration.
Detection of CSF 14-3-3 protein in Guillain–Barré syndrome
TLDR
In GBS, 14-3-3 protein was detected as early as 12 to 48 hours after disease onset and showed an isoform pattern different from that encountered in patients with noninflammatory neuropathies, VN, MND, and sCJD.
Challenging the clinical utility of the 14-3-3 protein for the diagnosis of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.
TLDR
Testing for the 14-3-3 protein in cerebrospinal fluid is only modestly sensitive to sporadic CJD, and it is cautioned against ruling out a diagnosis of the disease on the basis of a negative 14- 3-3 result.
Detection of CSF 14-3-3 Protein in Sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease Patients Using a New Automated Capillary Western Assay
Sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) is a fatal rapidly progressive dementia. The detection of 14-3-3 protein in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is included in the WHO diagnostic criteria for the

The 14-3-3 brain protein in cerebrospinal fluid as a marker for transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.
TLDR
In patients with dementia, a positive immunoassay for the 14-3-3 brain protein in cerebrospinal fluid strongly supports a diagnosis of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, but this finding does not support the use of the test in patients without clinically evident dementia.
Constitutive and Cytokine‐inducible Expression of Prion Protein Gene in Human Neural Cell Lines
TLDR
Results indicate that the PrP gene expression is constitutive in a wide range of human neural cell lines and tissues where it is controlled by cell type-specific regulatory mechanisms.
Function of RNH-l/14–3–3β Gene in Cellular Differentiation and Proliferation
TLDR
The enforced expression of RNH-1/14-3-3 beta in PC12 and K2 cells conferred on them a higher sensitivity to NGF for neuronal differentiation and an intense growth ability in low serum medium, respectively, providing additional evidence that RNH (rat NGF homologue) participates in cellular differentiation, proliferation and transformation through the signal transduction pathways of various growth factors.
Function of RNH-1/14-3-3 beta gene in cellular differentiation and proliferation.
TLDR
The enforced expression of RNH-1/14-3-3 beta in PC12 and K2 cells conferred on them a higher sensitivity to NGF for neuronal differentiation and an intense growth ability in low serum medium, respectively.
Detection of 14‐3‐3 protein in the cerebrospinal fluid supports the diagnosis of Creutzfeldt‐Jakob disease
TLDR
CSF analysis for 14‐3‐3 protein should thus be performed in any case suspect for CJD, as false‐positive results in a single CSF analysis were seen in patients with herpes simplex encephalitis, hypoxic brain damage, atypical enphalitis, intracerebral metastases of a bronchial carcinoma, metabolic encephalopathy, and progressive dementia of unknown cause.
The assay development of a molecular marker for transmissible spongiform encephalopathies
TLDR
Two‐dimensional electrophoresis of proteins was previously used to identify two marker proteins, 130/131, which are selectively present in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with CJD and not in patients with other dementias, but silver staining of two‐dimensional ElectrophoresIS separated BSE CSF proteins does not identify a similar marker.
Subcellular Localisation of 14‐3‐3 Isoforms in Rat Brain Using Specific Antibodies
TLDR
The finding that the 14‐3‐3 proteins are associated with different populations of synaptic membranes suggests that they are selectively expressed in different classes of neurones and raises the possibility that some or all of them may influence neurotransmission by regulating exocytosis and/or phosphorylation.
Molecular cloning of cDNA coding for brain-specific 14-3-3 protein, a protein kinase-dependent activator of tyrosine and tryptophan hydroxylases.
TLDR
The structural features of the eta chain and the domain organization of tyrosine and tryptophan hydroxylases suggest that the 14-3-3 protein binds to the regulatory domain of the phosphorylated hydroxymases through its acidic carboxyl-terminal region and activates the hydroxyases by inducing an active conformation.
Widespread Distribution of the 14‐3‐3 Protein in Vertebrate Brains and Bovine Tissues: Correlation with the Distributions of Calcium‐Dependent Protein Kinases
TLDR
Quantitative analysis indicated that the tissue distribution of 14‐3‐3 protein is more closely related to the known distributions of the Ca2+‐dependent protein kinases, rather than those of tyrosine and tryptophan hydroxylases, suggesting potential roles of the 14‐ 3‐3protein in more diverse kinasemediated processes than the predicted role in monoamine synthesis.
