Abstract

Mutations in genes involved in nervous system development can result in disorders such as Down’s syndrome and autism. MIG-10 is a cytoplasmic adaptor protein in the model system C. elegans that functions in neuronal migration and axon guidance during development. To study possible interactions between MIG-10 and candidate protein CSN-5, co-immunoprecipitation and western blotting were performed. An interaction between MIG-10 and CSN-5 was confirmed, suggesting that CSN-5 is needed to stabilize MIG-10.
