A post-ingestive amino acid sensor promotes food consumption in Drosophila
Adequate protein intake is crucial for the survival and well-being of animals. How animals assess prospective protein sources and ensure dietary amino acid intake plays a critical role in proteinExpand
STAT3 selectively interacts with Smad3 to antagonize TGF-β signaling
Smad and STAT proteins are critical signal transducers and transcription factors in controlling cell growth and tumorigenesis. Here we report that the STAT3 signaling pathway attenuates transformingExpand
Regulation of p27Kip1 phosphorylation and G1 cell cycle progression by protein phosphatase PPM1G.
The cell cycle, an essential process leading to the cell division, is stringently controlled by the key cell cycle regulators, cyclin-CDK complexes, whose activity is further regulated by a varietyExpand
Intragenic Suppressor of Osiaa23 Revealed a Conserved Tryptophan Residue Crucial for Protein-Protein Interactions
The Auxin/Indole-3-Acetic Acid (Aux/IAA) and Auxin Response Factor (ARF) are two important families that play key roles in auxin signal transduction. Both of the families contain a similarExpand
Regulation of p 27 Kip 1 phosphorylation and G 1 cell cycle progression by protein phosphatase PPM 1 G
The cell cycle, an essential process leading to the cell division, is stringently controlled by the key cell cycle regulators, cyclin-CDK complexes, whose activity is further regulated by a varietyExpand
An internal sensor detects dietary amino acids and promotes food consumption in Drosophila
Adequate protein intake is crucial for animals. Despite the recent progress in understanding protein hunger and satiety in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, how fruit flies assess prospectiveExpand
