We have identified an unusual potential dual Akt/protein kinase B consensus phosphorylation motif in the protein Synip (RxKxRS(97)xS(99)). Surprisingly, serine 97 is not appreciably phosphorylated, whereas serine 99 is only a specific substrate for Akt2 but not Akt1 or Akt3. Although wild-type Synip (WT-Synip) undergoes an insulin-stimulated dissociation(More)
Herbimycin A is one of the benzenoid ansamycin antibiotics isolated from a culture of Streptomyces species (Omura, S., A. Nakagawa, and N. Sadakane. 1979. Tetrahedron Lett. 1979: 4323-4326). Recent studies have shown that the antibiotic not only inhibits the phosphorylation of p60src in Rous sarcoma virus- (RSV) infected cells, but also reverses the(More)
Some of the signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) family members are constitutively activated in a wide variety of human tumors. The activity of STAT depends on their Src homology 2 (SH2) domain-mediated binding to sequences containing phosphorylated tyrosine. Thus, antagonizing this binding is a feasible approach to inhibiting STAT(More)
