Phosphoinositide 3-kinases (PI3Ks) are essential for cell growth, migration, and survival. The structure of a p110β/p85β complex identifies an inhibitory function for the C-terminal SH2 domain (cSH2) of the p85 regulatory subunit. Mutagenesis of a cSH2 contact residue activates downstream signaling in cells. This inhibitory contact ties up the C-terminal(More)
Previously we reported the identification of two unique progesterone receptor (PR) messenger RNA transcripts that encode a smaller PR isoform, termed the C-receptor (PRc). These two PR transcripts encode a protein that is N-terminally truncated, so that it lacks the first zinc finger of the DNA binding domain, but still contains a complete hormone binding(More)
Interleukin-2 (IL-2) is a fundamental cytokine that controls proliferation and differentiation of T cells. Here, we used high-resolution mass spectrometry to generate a comprehensive and detailed map of IL-2 protein phosphorylations in cytotoxic T cells (CTL). The data revealed that Janus kinases (JAKs) couple IL-2 receptors to the coordinated(More)
