Western blot analysis using PSG2 showed that certain sperm/epididymal proteins are undersulfated in Tpst2-/- mice, which indicates that TPST1 and TPST2 have distinct macromolecular substrate specificities and provides clues as to the molecular mechanism of the infertility of T pst 2-/- males.
Determination of the sites of tyrosine O-sulfation in peptides and proteins
This methodology identified the sites and the order of sulfation of several peptides mediated by purified human tyrosylprotein sulfotransferases (TPSTs), and unambiguously determined the tyrosine sulfation sites in mouse lumican and human vitronectin.
The discovery of aspirin's antithrombotic effects.
The story of Lawrence Craven's story is presented, which demonstrates the value of a single physician's commitment to lifelong learning and the work of the physicians and scientists who discovered the molecular mechanisms by which aspirin exerts its antiplatelet effects.
Mass spectrometric kinetic analysis of human tyrosylprotein sulfotransferase-1 and -2
Early postnatal pulmonary failure and primary hypothyroidism in mice with combined TPST-1 and TPST-2 deficiency.

It is demonstrated that RNase 9 and Mfge8 are tyrosine-sulfated in wild type and Tpst1-/-, but not in T pst2-/- mice, which suggests that lack of sulfation of one or both of these proteins may contribute mechanistically to the infertility of TpSt2- +/- males.
Protein tyrosine-O-sulfation in the retina.
Differential Developmental Deficits in Retinal Function in the Absence of either Protein Tyrosine Sulfotransferase-1 or -2
The results demonstrate the functional importance of protein-tyrosine sulfation for proper development of the retina and suggest that the different phenotypes resulting from elimination of either TPST-1 or -2 may reflect differential expression patterns or levels of the enzymes.
Pretreatment with troglitazone decreases lethality during endotoxemia in mice
The results of these studies suggest that troglitazone treatment protects mice against a lethal challenge of LPS, but whether or not this effect is mediated through decreased expression of inflammatory mediators remains unclear.
