Choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) synthesizes the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in cholinergic neurons, and mutations of this enzyme are linked to the neuromuscular disorder congenital myasthenic syndrome (CMS). One CMS-related mutation, V18M, reduces ChAT enzyme activity and cellular protein levels, and is located...

Cytokine, 64(1), 54-57 (2013-06-04)
Many cytokine receptors are cell surface proteins that promiscuously combine to form active signalling homo- or heterodimers. Thus, receptor chain dimerization can be viewed as a direct measure of a high probability of intracellular signalling by specific cytokines. Proximity ligation...

Asymmetrically dividing muscle stem cells in skeletal muscle give rise to committed cells, where the myogenic determination factor Myf5 is transcriptionally activated by Pax7. This activation is dependent on Carm1, which methylates Pax7 on multiple arginine residues, to recruit the ASH2L:MLL1/2:WDR5:RBBP5 histone methyltransferase...
