Multiple molecular architectures of the eye lens chaperone αB-crystallin elucidated by a triple hybrid approach
The molecular chaperone αB-crystallin, the major player in maintaining the transparency of the eye lens, prevents stress-damaged and aging lens proteins from aggregation. In nonlenticular cells, itExpand

Effective Dephosphorylation of Src Substrates by SHP-1*
The protein-tyrosine phosphatase SHP-1 is a negative regulator of multiple signal transduction pathways. We observed that SHP-1 effectively antagonized Src-dependent phosphorylations in HEK293 cells.Expand
