Peripherin, a new member of the intermediate filament protein
Interactions of intermediate filament protein
synemin with dystrophin and utrophin.
A rapid method for the large scale purification of the intermediate filament protein
vimentin by single-stranded DNA-cellulose affinity chromatography.
Intermediate filament proteins
, or nanofilament proteins as they are sometimes called, are important stress proteins that in many cell types act as crisis command centers in times of cellular stress and emerge as interesting targets in many diseases.
Plectin interacts with the rod domain of type III intermediate filament proteins
desmin and vimentin.
The keratins are intermediate filament proteins
and are important for integrity and mechanical stability of epithelial cells with the largest number of keratin genes expressed in skin.

in astrocytes and neurons of rats," Experimental Neurology, vol.
In addition, several intermediate filament proteins
such as vimentin and annexin, as well as histone H1.2 and H2A, were down-regulated in the high producer.
The [alpha]-helical rod domain is critical for the assembly of intermediate filament proteins
into filaments and contains all the information necessary for assembly, while the variant end domains play accessory roles in filament assembly and interaction with other proteins and cell structures.
