Monoacylglycerol Lipase Regulates a Fatty Acid Network that Promotes Cancer Pathogenesis
Tumor cells display progressive changes in metabolism that correlate with malignancy, including development of a lipogenic phenotype. How stored fats are liberated and remodeled to support cancerExpand
A Hormone-Dependent Module Regulating Energy Balance
Under fasting conditions, metazoans maintain energy balance by shifting from glucose to fat burning. In the fasted state, SIRT1 promotes catabolic gene expression by deacetylating the forkhead factorExpand
Selectivity of inhibitors of endocannabinoid biosynthesis evaluated by activity-based protein profiling.
The endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) has been implicated as a key retrograde mediator in the nervous system based on pharmacological studies using inhibitors of the 2-AG biosyntheticExpand
Proteomic profiling of metalloprotease activities with cocktails of active-site probes
Metalloproteases are a large, diverse class of enzymes involved in many physiological and disease processes. Metalloproteases are regulated by post-translational mechanisms that diminish theExpand
IGF1-R signals through the RON receptor to mediate pancreatic cancer cell migration.
The RON receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) is overexpressed in the majority of pancreatic cancers, yet its role in pancreatic cancer cell biology remains to be clarified. Recent work in childhood sarcomaExpand
Potent and selective alpha-ketoheterocycle-based inhibitors of the anandamide and oleamide catabolizing enzyme, fatty acid amide hydrolase.
A study of the structure-activity relationships (SAR) of 2f (OL-135), a potent inhibitor of fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), is detailed, targeting the 5-position of the oxazole. Examination of aExpand
Diversity of Serine Hydrolase Activities of Unchallenged and Botrytis-infected Arabidopsis thaliana*S
Activity-based protein profiling is a powerful method to display enzyme activities in proteomes and provides crucial information on enzyme activity rather than protein or transcript abundance. WeExpand
The RON‐receptor regulates pancreatic cancer cell migration through phosphorylation‐dependent breakdown of the hemidesmosome
The recepteur d'origine nantais (RON) receptor tyrosine kinase is overexpressed and stimulates invasive growth in pancreatic cancer cells, yet the mechanisms that underlie RON‐mediated phenotypesExpand
Potent and Selective α-Ketoheterocycle-Based Inhibitors of the Anandamide and Oleamide Catabolizing Enzyme, Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase
A study of the structure−activity relationships (SAR) of 2f (OL-135), a potent inhibitor of fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), is detailed, targeting the 5-position of the oxazole. Examination of aExpand
An orthogonal active site identification system (OASIS) for proteomic profiling of natural product biosynthesis.
A significant gap exists between genetics-based investigations of polyketide synthase (PKS) and nonribosomal peptide synthetase (NRPS) biosynthetic pathways and our understanding of their regulation,Expand
