We have developed a proteomic approach for identifying phosphopeptide binding domains that modulate kinase-dependent signaling pathways. An immobilized library of partially degenerate phosphopeptides biased toward a particular protein kinase phosphorylation motif is used to isolate phospho-binding domains that bind to proteins phosphorylated by that kinase.(More)
In eukaryotic cells, the SH2 and PTB domains mediate protein-protein interactions by recognizing phosphotyrosine residues on target proteins. Here we make the unexpected finding that the C2 domain of PKCdelta directly binds to phosphotyrosine peptides in a sequence-specific manner. We provide evidence that this domain mediates PKCdelta interaction with a(More)
Meningiomas are the second most common primary tumor of the brain. Gross-total resection remains the preferred treatment if achievable with minimal morbidity. For incompletely resected or inoperable benign meningiomas, 3D conformal external-beam radiation therapy can provide durable local tumor control in 90 to 95% of cases. Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)(More)
In response to certain cytokines and inflammatory mediators, the activity of the neutrophil NADPH oxidase enzyme is primed for enhanced superoxide production when the cells receive a subsequent oxidase-activating stimulus. The relative role of p38 MAPK in the priming and activation processes is incompletely understood. We have developed a 2-step assay that(More)
