Evidence that phosphorylation of the microtubule-associated protein Tau by SAPK4/ p38delta at Thr50 promotes microtubule assembly.
Located within dendrites and axonal projections, microtubules serve as tracks for the transportation of post-Golgi vesicles by microtubule bound motor proteins (such as kinesin and dynein).
In this way, it would destabilize microtubule assembly, cargo and samurai proteins dynamicity (such as dynein, cofactor dynactin, kinesin, and samurai protein katanin), vesicle transport.

2012), we attempted to reconcile the astral microtubule and central spindle models in echinoderm embryos by examining the requirement for, and distribution of, the centralspindlin (tracked via anti-MKLP1 localization) and CPC (tracked via anti-Survivin localization) complexes during early division cycles.
Based on its expertise in providing targeted extracellular signals with high specificity for the regulation of microtubule dynamics and associated proteins like DCAMKL1, Histide has created an innovative platform of nonmutagenic extracellular therapeutic agents called Cell Recoding Molecules (CRMs) with the capacity to dictate the precise commitment of various cell types.
