Molecular mechanisms of the PRL phosphatases
The phosphatases of regenerating liver (PRLs) are an intriguing family of dual specificity phosphatases due to their oncogenicity. The three members are small, single domain enzymes. We provide anExpand

The effect of polymer surface on the wetting and adhesion of liquid systems
Young's equation describes the wetting phenomenon in terms of the contact angle between a liquid and a solid surface. However, the contact angle is not the only parameter that defines liquid–solidExpand

Proteolytic processing of the receptor‐type protein tyrosine phosphatase PTPBR7
The single‐copy mouse gene Ptprr gives rise to different protein tyrosine phosphatase (PTP) isoforms in neuronal cells through the use of distinct promoters, alternative splicing, and multipleExpand

The effects of nanostructure and composition on the hydrophobic properties of solid surfaces
The effects of nanoroughness and chemical composition on the contact and sliding angles on hydrophobic surfaces were studied theoretically and experimentally. A theoretical model based on forcesExpand

Hydrophobic and self‐cleaning coatings
The effects of nano and micro roughness as well as the chemical composition of surface treatments on hydrophobicity and self-cleaning properties of the coated surfaces were studied theoretically andExpand

Interrogating PP1 Activity in the MAPK Pathway with Optimized PP1‐Disrupting Peptides
Protein phosphatase‐1 (PP1)‐disrupting peptides (PDPs) are selective chemical modulators of PP1 that liberate the active PP1 catalytic subunit from regulatory proteins; thus allowing theExpand

Cercicladia australis , a new carnivorous sponge with novel chelae from the Tasman Basin and the Argentine Patagonian Margin (Porifera, Cladorhizidae)
Recent expeditions around New Zealand have revealed a surprising diversity of carnivorous sponges (Demospongiae, Poecilosclerida, Cladorhizidae). This is especially true for the Macquarie Ridge toExpand
