On the other hand, MAPT might influence the anterograde transport and thus the insulin trafficking from the beta cells.
Similarly, given an estimated basal anterograde transport rate of about 75 mm/d at 18 [degrees]C (our overnight incubation temperature), anterograde transport from soma to synapse (2.5 cm) might require about 8 h.
Hence, although our experiments indicate that active axonal transport is essential for LTF, they do not determine whether anterograde transport alone, retrograde transport alone, or both, are critically involved.
Each kinase seems to have opposing effects on transport, perhaps indicating differential effects on NF binding to the transport motors kinesin and dynein, altering retrograde and anterograde transport differentially.
