High impact information on EML4


Biological context of EML4


Anatomical context of EML4

  • We present evidence that the amino-terminal portion of EML4 (amino acids 1-249) is essential for the association with microtubules [1].
  • Spatially, Eml4 expression becomes restricted to the olfactory bulb, hippocampus and cerebellum [3].

Associations of EML4 with chemical compounds


  1. Human EML4, a novel member of the EMAP family, is essential for microtubule formation. Pollmann, M., Parwaresch, R., Adam-Klages, S., Kruse, M.L., Buck, F., Heidebrecht, H.J. Exp. Cell Res. (2006) [Pubmed]

  3. Echinoderm microtubule-associated protein like protein 4, a member of the echinoderm microtubule-associated protein family, stabilizes microtubules. Houtman, S.H., Rutteman, M., De Zeeuw, C.I., French, P.J. Neuroscience (2007) [Pubmed]
