The balance of protein phosphorylation is achieved through the actions of a family of protein serine/threonine kinases called the mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs). The propagation of MAPK signals is attenuated through the actions of the MAPK phosphatases (MKPs). The MKPs specifically inactivate the MAPKs by direct dephosphorylation. The archetypal(More)
The liver plays a critical role in glucose metabolism and communicates with peripheral tissues to maintain energy homeostasis. Obesity and insulin resistance are highly associated with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). However, the precise molecular details of NAFLD remain incomplete. The p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and c-Jun(More)
Protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) play a crucial role in the regulation of human health and it is now clear that PTP dysfunction is causal to a variety of human diseases. Research in the PTP field has accelerated dramatically over the last decade fueled by cutting-edge technologies in genomic and proteomic techniques. This system-wide non-biased approach(More)
