Plectin, the most versatile cytolinker identified to date, has essential functions in maintaining the mechanical integrity of skin, skeletal muscle and heart, as indicated by analyses of plectin-deficient mice and humans. Expression of plectin in a vast variety of tissues and cell types, combined with a large number of different binding partners identified at the molecular level, calls for complex mechanisms regulating gene transcription and expression of the protein. To investigate these… CONTINUE READING
