Cyclin-dependent kinase-5 (cdk5)/p35 and protein phosphatase-1 (PP1) are two major enzymes that control a variety of physiological processes within the nervous system including neuronal differentiation, synaptic plasticity and axonal transport. Defective cdk5/p35 and PP1 function are also implicated in several major human neurodegenerative diseases.(More)
A recent genome wide association study identified the gene encoding lemur tyrosine kinase-2 (LMTK2) as a susceptibility gene for prostate cancer. The identified genetic alteration is within intron 9 but the mechanisms by which LMTK2 may impact upon prostate cancer are not clear because the functions of LMTK2 are poorly understood. Here, we show that LMTK2(More)
Although it is well established that insulin/IGF and BDNF signaling are dysfunctionally regulated in Alzheimer's disease, there are very few studies documenting changes in major target proteins in different murine models of the disease. We investigated a panel of proteins in the PI3K-Akt and MAPK/ERK cascades in parietal cortex, dentate gyrus and CA1 in(More)
