    A Matus
    Friedrich Miecher Institute PO Box 2543, 4002, Basel, Switzerland
    Curr Opin Neurobiol 9:561-5. 1999
    ..Thus, the actin cytoskeleton is emerging as a key mediator between signal transmission and anatomical plasticity at excitatory synapses...
  5. pmc Volatile anesthetics block actin-based motility in dendritic spines
    S Kaech
    Friedrich Miescher Institute, P O Box 2543, 4002 Basel, Switzerland
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 96:10433-7. 1999
    ..These observations imply that inhibition of actin dynamics at brain synapses occurs during general anesthesia and that inhalational anesthetics are capable of influencing the morphological plasticity of excitatory synapses in the brain...
  6. pmc Cytoskeletal microdifferentiation: a mechanism for organizing morphological plasticity in dendrites
    S Kaech
    Friedrich Miescher Institute, 4058 Basel, Switzerland
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:7086-92. 2001
    ..These data thus suggest a mechanism, conserved through development and adulthood, in which the differential dynamics of actin and microtubules determine the plasticity of neuronal structures...
  7. ncbi GFP illuminates the cytoskeleton
    B Ludin
    Friedrich Miescher Institute, Basel, Switzerland
    Trends Cell Biol 8:72-7. 1998
    ..The recent introduction of green fluorescent protein (GFP) has enabled visualization of proteins and cytoskeletal dynamics with only minimal perturbations of the living cell and has opened new horizons for studying the cytoskeleton...
  8. pmc Bundling of microtubules in transfected cells does not involve an autonomous dimerization site on the MAP2 molecule
    K E Burgin
    Friedrich Miescher Institute, Basel, Switzerland
    Mol Biol Cell 5:511-7. 1994

    M Roelandse
    Friedrich Miescher Institute, PO Box 2543, 4002 Basel, Switzerland
    Neuroscience 121:39-49. 2003
    ..The partial enveloping of presynaptic terminals by these cup-shaped spines coupled with rapid actin-driven changes in their shape may operate to fine-tune receptor distribution and neurotransmitter cross-talk at excitatory synapses...

    T Doll
    Friedrich Miescher Institute, Basel, Switzerland
    J Cell Sci 106:633-9. 1993
    ..The presence of an additional 4th repeat of the tubulin-binding motif in all three members of the MAP2 gene family suggests that this variant arose prior to their differentiation from an ancestral gene...
