Protein phosphatase 1 is a key player in nuclear events.
Aveiro, Portugal. In Cell Signal, Dec 2015
In fact PP1 can associate with transcription factors fulfilling an important regulatory function, in this respect it can bind to Hox11, human factor C1 (HCF1) and myocyte enhancer factor-2 (MEF2).
Matrix Metalloproteinases as Therapeutic Targets for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Albuquerque, United States. In Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol, Nov 2015
These mechanisms include MMPs: (1) promoting epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (MMP-3 and MMP-7); (2) increasing lung levels or activity of profibrotic mediators or reducing lung levels of antifibrotic mediators (MMP-3, MMP-7, and MMP-8); (3) promoting abnormal epithelial cell migration and other aberrant repair processes (MMP-3 and MMP-9); (4) inducing the switching of lung macrophage phenotypes from M1 to M2 types (MMP-10 and MMP-28); and (5) promoting fibrocyte migration (MMP-8).
MEF2 transcription factors: developmental regulators and emerging cancer genes.
Vancouver, Canada. In Oncotarget, Nov 2015
UNASSIGNED: The MEF2 transcription factors have roles in muscle, cardiac, skeletal, vascular, neural, blood and immune system cell development through their effects on cell differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis, migration, shape and metabolism.

Exercise, GLUT4, and skeletal muscle glucose uptake.
Copenhagen, Denmark. In Physiol Rev, 2013
AMPK and CaMKII are key signaling kinases that appear to regulate GLUT4 expression via the HDAC4/5-MEF2 axis and MEF2-GEF interactions resulting in nuclear export of HDAC4/5 in turn leading to histone hyperacetylation on the GLUT4 promoter and increased GLUT4 transcription.
