Molecular basis of lysophosphatidic acid-induced NF-κB activation.
Houston, United States. In Cell Signal, 2010
PKC, β-arrestin 2, CARMA3, BCL10, MALT1, TRAF6 and MEKK3 are signaling proteins that have a key role in G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR)-mediated activation of nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) pathway in nonhematopoietic cells in response to lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) stimulation.
Structure and function of the PB1 domain, a protein interaction module conserved in animals, fungi, amoebas, and plants.
Fukuoka, Japan. In Sci Stke, 2007
The canonical PB1 dimerization is required for the formation of complexes between p40(phox) and p67(phox) (for activation of the NADPH oxidase crucial for mammalian host defense), between the scaffold Bem1 and the guanine nucleotide exchange factor Cdc24 (for polarity establishment in yeasts), and between the polarity protein Par6 and atypical protein kinase C (for cell polarization in animal cells), as well as for the interaction between the mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinases MEKK2 or MEKK3 and the downstream target mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase MEK5 (for early cardiovascular development in mammals).
