Inactivation of brain cofilin-1 by age, alzheimer's disease and γ-secretase.
Lausanne, Switzerland. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 11 Nov 2014
To understand the mechanism(s) regulating Cofilin1 activity we evaluated changes occurring with regard to Cofilin1 and its up-stream regulators Lim kinase-1 (LIMK1) and Slingshot phosphatase-1 (SSH1) in (i) human AD brain, (ii) 1-, 4-, and 10-months old APP/PS1 mice, (iii) wild type 3-, 8-, 12-, 18- and 26-months old mice, as well as in cellular models including (iv) mouse primary cortical neurons (PCNs, cultured for 5, 10, 15 and 20days in vitro) and (v) mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEF).
β-Arrestin-kinase scaffolds: turn them on or turn them off?
Riverside, United States. In Wiley Interdiscip Rev Syst Biol Med, Mar 2013
Subsequently a number of other kinases have been shown to undergo β-arrestin-dependent regulation, including Akt, phosphatidylinositol-3kinase (PI3K), Lim-domain-containing kinase (LIMK), calcium calmodulin kinase II (CAMKII), and calcium calmodulin kinase kinase β (CAMKKβ).
