There is a correlation between the onset of stiffening and the expression of the microtubule associated protein DCAMKL1, thus implicating DCAMKL1 in a stress-stiffening-mediated, mechanostransduction pathway that involves microtubule dynamics in the mechanisms underlying stem cell differentiation and commitment to a specific cell lineage.
The C-terminal is made up of two antiparallel helices H11-H12 which interacts with Microtubule Associated Protein (MAP) (11).
Ran GTPase activating protein-1 (RanBPl % and microtubule associated protein RP/EB family member 1 (EB1) were confirmed by Western blotting.
