Sprouty proteins are involved in organogenesis, particularly during the branching of endothelial tubes, and existing evidence suggests that Sprouty's point of action lies downstream of receptor signaling to inhibit the activation of the central Ras/Erk pathway. How Sprouty proteins accomplish their inhibitory action and whether they interact with other(More)
Extracellular regulated kinase 5 (ERK5) is an unusually large member of the MAP kinase family of signaling molecules that plays an important role in cellular proliferation, differentiation and survival. Recently, three transcriptional variants of murine Erk5 were described (mErk5-a, -b and -c) that result from alternate splicing across introns 1 and/or 2,(More)
Rrp46 was first identified as a protein component of the eukaryotic exosome, a protein complex involved in 3' processing of RNA during RNA turnover and surveillance. The Rrp46 homolog, CRN-5, was subsequently characterized as a cell death-related nuclease, participating in DNA fragmentation during apoptosis in Caenorhabditis elegans. Here we report the(More)
Dengue Virus (DENV) infection is responsible for the world's most significant insect-borne viral disease. Despite an increasing global impact, there are neither prophylactic nor therapeutic options available for the effective treatment of DENV infection. An attractive target for antiviral drugs is the virally encoded trypsin-like serine protease (NS3pro)(More)
