MAPKK-independent activation of p38alpha mediated by TAB1-dependent autophosphorylation of p38alpha.
Phosphorylation of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) on specific tyrosine and threonine sites by MAP kinase kinases (MAPKKs) is thought to be the sole activation mechanism. Here, we report anExpand

Native Polycystin 2 Functions as a Plasma Membrane Ca2+-Permeable Cation Channel in Renal Epithelia
ABSTRACT Mutations in polycystin 2 (PC2), a Ca2+-permeable cation channel, cause autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. Whether PC2 functions in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) or in the plasmaExpand

Antiinflammatory effects of matrine in LPS-induced acute lung injury in mice.
Matrine is one of the main active components of Chinese herb Sophora flavescens Ait (Kushen), which has been demonstrated to be effective in suppressing inflammation. The aim of the present study isExpand

The autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease protein is localized to primary cilia, with concentration in the basal body area.
Recent evidence suggests that structural and functional abnormalities of primary cilia in kidney epithelia are associated with mouse and human autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. ToExpand

Mutations in CUL4B, which encodes a ubiquitin E3 ligase subunit, cause an X-linked mental retardation syndrome associated with aggressive outbursts, seizures, relative macrocephaly, central obesity,
We have identified three truncating, two splice-site, and three missense variants at conserved amino acids in the CUL4B gene on Xq24 in 8 of 250 families with X-linked mental retardation (XLMR).Expand

Fibrocystin/Polyductin, Found in the Same Protein Complex with Polycystin-2, Regulates Calcium Responses in Kidney Epithelia
ABSTRACT Recent evidence suggests that fibrocystin/polyductin (FPC), polycystin-1 (PC1), and polycystin-2 (PC2) are all localized at the plasma membrane and the primary cilium, where PC1 and PC2Expand
