The heterotetrameric AP-1A adaptor complex of clathrin-coated vesicles is ubiquitously expressed. The mu 1-adaptin subunit of the complex exists as the ubiquitous mu 1A and the polarized epithelia-specific mu 1B, which are 80% identical. In polarized epithelia, mu 1B is incorporated into the AP-1B complex, which is required for basolateral plasma membrane(More)
RAF proteins are well known oncoproteins. The B-RAF has been shown to be activated by mutations in a multitude of human cancers. Alterations of C-RAF expression are discussed to play a role in lung cancer. Only for A-RAF no link to tumorigenesis has been published so far. Malignant gliomas are the most prevalent primary brain tumors of adults. They are(More)
In order to investigate the impact of signalling proteins on the phenotype and malignant behavior of glioblastoma cells, we optimized the transfection procedure of human glioblastoma cell lines U251, U373, GaMG and of primary cells obtained from a patient's tumor using nucleofection technology in conjunction with plasmid pmaxGFP. We describe the(More)
Phosphatase of regenerating liver 3 (PRL-3) is suggested as a biomarker and therapeutic target in several cancers. It has a well-established causative role in cancer metastasis. However, little is known about its natural substrates, pathways, and biological functions, and only a few protein substrates have been suggested so far. To improve our understanding(More)
Protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) play crucial roles in health and disease. Chemical modulators of their activity are vital tools to study their function. An important aspect is the accessibility of these tools, which is usually limited or not existent due to the required, often complex synthesis of the molecules. We describe here a strategy for the(More)
Protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs) are important enzymes in health and disease, and chemical tools are crucial to understand and modulate their biological roles. PTP1B is involved in diabetes, obesity and cancer. One of the main challenges for the design of chemical tools for PTP1B is the homology to TCPTP, making tool selectivity a highly challenging(More)
