The Lafora disease gene product laforin interacts with HIRIP5, a phylogenetically conserved protein containing a NifU-like domain

Lafora disease is an autosomal recessive type of progressive myoclonus epilepsy caused by mutations in the EPM2A gene. The EPM2A gene-encoded protein laforin is a dual-specificity phosphatase that associates with polyribosomes. Because the cellular functions of laforin are largely unknown, we used the yeast-two hybrid system to screen for protein(s) that interact with laforin. We...

Laforin, defective in the progressive myoclonus epilepsy of Lafora type, is a dual-specificity phosphatase associated with polyribosomes

The progressive myoclonus epilepsy of Lafora type is an autosomal recessive disorder caused by mutations in the EPM2A gene. EPM2A is predicted to encode a putative tyrosine phosphatase protein, named laforin, whose full sequence has not yet been reported. In order to understand the function of the EPM2A gene, we isolated a full-length cDNA, raised an antibody and characterized...
