Tubulin-mediated binding of human immunodeficiency virus-1 Tat to the cytoskeleton causes proteasomal-dependent degradation of microtubule-associated protein 2 and neuronal damage.

Abstract

One of the hallmarks of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 associated pathology in the CNS is deterioration of neuronal processes. Although there is mounting evidence of neuronal toxicity and cell death induced by the HIV-1 transactivating factor Tat, the molecular events linked directly to its detrimental effect on neuronal cells remain unclear. In this… (More)
