Determinants of cell-to-cell variability in protein kinase signaling.

Cells reliably sense environmental changes despite internal and external fluctuations, but the mechanisms underlying robustness remain unclear. We ana...

Determinants of expression variability.
The amount of tissue-specific expression variability (EV) across individuals is an essential characteristic of a gene and believed to have evolved, in part, under functional constraints. However, the determinants and functional implications of EV are

Emerging roles of protein kinase CK2 in abscisic acid signaling.
The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) regulates many aspects of plant growth and development as well as responses to multiple stresses. Post-translational modifications such as phosphorylation or ubiquitination have pivotal roles in the regulation of

Role of protein kinase A signaling pathway in cyclosporine nephrotoxicity.
Cyclosporine is an important immunosuppressive agent; however, nephrotoxicity is one of the main adverse effects. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of inhibiting the protein kinase A (PKA) signaling pathway in nephrotoxicity caused

β-adrenergic signaling inhibits Gq-dependent protein kinase D activation by preventing protein kinase D translocation.
Both β-adrenergic receptor (β-AR) and Gq-coupled receptor (GqR) agonist-driven signaling play key roles in the events, leading up to and during cardiac dysfunction. How these stimuli interact at the level of protein kinase D (PKD), a nodal point in c

Genetic determinants of pig birth weight variability.
Piglet birth weight variability, a trait also known as the within-litter homogeneity of birth weight, reflects the sow's prolificacy, because it is positively genetically correlated with preweaning mortality but negatively correlated with the mean gr

protein kinase B signaling.
Shikonin, a naturally occurring naphthoquinone, exhibits anti-tumorigenic activity. However, its precise mechanisms of action have remained elusive. In the present study, the involvement in the action of shikonin of the ubiquitin ligases Cbl-b and c-

Ready, set, go! How protein kinase C manages dynamic signaling.
In this issue of Chemistry & Biology, Antal and colleagues describe how phosphorylation optimizes the signaling range of protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms. Priming of these enzymes regulates intramolecular conformational changes, which reduces access t

Noise exposure immediately activates cochlear mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling.
Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is a major public health issue worldwide. Uncovering the early molecular events associated with NIHL would reveal mechanisms leading to the hearing loss. Our aim is to investigate the immediate molecular responses af

p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase and mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 2 (MK2) signaling in atrophic and hypertrophic denervated mouse skeletal muscle.
p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase has been implicated in both skeletal muscle atrophy and hypertrophy. T317 phosphorylation of the p38 substrate mitogen-activated protein kinase-activated protein kinase 2 (MK2) correlates with muscle weight in atr
