Casein Kinase 2-A Kinase that Inhibits Brown Fat Formation.
Göteborg, Sweden. In Cell Metab, Jan 2016
(2015) use phosphoproteomics to identify casein kinase 2 (CK2) as a suppressor of brown adipocyte formation, providing insights into how adipose tissue regulates its composition of white versus brown adipocytes.
Optimizing a Male Reproductive Aging Mouse Model by d-Galactose Injection.
Taipei, Taiwan. In Int J Mol Sci, Dec 2015
Several of these genes are critical for forming sperm-head morphologies or maintaining nuclear integration (e.g., cylicin, basic protein of sperm head cytoskeleton 2 (Cylc2), casein kinase 2, alpha prime interacting protein (Csnka2ip) and katanin p80 (WD40-containing) subunit B1 (Katnb1)).
NUCKS: a potential biomarker in cancer and metabolic disease.
Singapore, Singapore. In Clin Sci (lond), Jun 2015
Nuclear, casein kinase and cyclin-dependent kinase substrate (NUCKS), a protein similar to the HMG (high-mobility group) protein family, is one of the most modified proteins in the mammalian proteome.
