Atypical protein kinase C (aPKC) is a key apical-basal polarity determinant and Par complex component. It is recruited by Par3/Baz (Bazooka in Drosophila) into epithelial apical domains through high-affinity interaction. Paradoxically, aPKC also phosphorylates Par3/Baz, provoking its relocalization to adherens junctions (AJs). We show that Par3 conserved(More)
Tranylcypromine (TCP), an amphetamine, is a reversible inhibitor of copper-containing amine oxidases. We have solved the structure of the complex of TCP with the amine oxidase from E. coli (ECAO) and shown that only the (+)-enantiomer of TCP binds. Kinetic studies on 2-phenylethylamine and TCP binding to wild-type ECAO and mutational variants fully support(More)
