Protein phosphorylation plays a cardinal role in regulating many cellular processes in eukaryotes. In particular, protein phosphorylation is a major currency of signal transduction pathways. Processes that are reversibly controlled by protein phosphorylation require not only a protein kinase (PK) but also a protein phosphatase (PP). Target proteins are phosphorylated at specific sites by one or more PKs, and these phosphates are removed by specific PPs. In principle, the extent of… Expand
Biological Regulation by Protein Phosphorylation
TLDR
The biological activity of many proteins is modulated by the phosphorylation of specific sites within the protein, which plays a particularly prominent role in the transduction of extracellular signals. Expand

TLDR
A review of the structure, regulation, and function of protein phosphatases in higher plants focuses on the function of tyrosine phosphorylation. Expand

TLDR
This review will focus on the role of local protein-protein interactions in PP2A control, which has shown that the catalytic activity, substrate specificity, and subcellular targeting of PP1A are regulated by a remarkably diverse range of regulatory subunits and enzyme inhibitors. Expand
Protein phosphatases: Structure, regulation, and function
TLDR
The biochemical properties of protein phosphatases have been highly conserved among eukaryotic organisms and efforts need to be directed to the functional analysis of these enzymes in the context of plant cell and developmental biology. Expand
A-kinase anchoring proteins and neuronal signaling mechanisms.
TLDR
How the subcellular location of protein kinases and phosphatases provides a means to restrict where and when phosphorylation events occur is emphasized. Expand
Inhibitors of the MAPK pathway
TLDR
This chapter will review the current field of biological and small molecule inhibitors of MAPKs, a series of three highly conserved protein kinases arrayed in a cascade that impact many cellular processes including proliferation, oncogenesis, development and differentiation, cell cycle and cell death.

TLDR
Several themes appear throughout PTP regulation of growth factor signaling, including positive or negative regulation, importance of cell/tissue type, identity of the receptor activated, and subcellular localization. Expand
Protein tyrosine phosphatases in higher plants.
TLDR
Preliminary results have provided evidence that these PTPs serve critical functions in plant responses to stress signals and in plant development, and it is still controversial whether tyrosine phosphorylation is important in plant signal transduction. Expand
PLANT PROTEIN PHOSPHATASES.
TLDR
Recent advances in the understanding of the structure, regulation, and function of plant protein phosphatases are discussed. Expand
Structure of McsB, a protein kinase for regulated arginine phosphorylation
TLDR
Structural and biochemical characterization of arginine kinase McsB reveals how its phosphagen kinase–like catalytic domain is adapted to target protein substrates while its phosphoarginine-binding domain allosterically controls kinase activity. Expand

Requirement for integration of signals from two distinct phosphorylation pathways for activation of MAP kinase
TLDR
It is demonstrated that MAP kinase is only active when both tyrosyl and threonyl residues are phosphorylated and suggested therefore that the enzyme functions in vivo to integrate signals from two distinct transduction pathways. Expand

TLDR
The important role of 'multi-site phosphorylation' in signal integration, in which different protein kinases produce additive, synergistic and antagonistic effects on activity by phosphorylating distinct Ser or Thr residues in a single protein is highlighted. Expand
Regulatory phosphorylation of the p34cdc2 protein kinase in vertebrates.
TLDR
It is shown that residues Thr14 and Tyr15 of mouse p34cdc2 become phosphorylated as mouse fibroblasts proceed through the cell cycle, suggesting that these phosphorylation events form part of the pathway linking completion of DNA replication to initiation of mitosis. Expand
Protein phosphatases come of age.
TLDR
This Minireview will concentrate on recent progress that has demonstrated key roles for these enzymes in tumor suppression and in cell division and identified novel phosphatase catalytic subunits. Expand
Inactivation of p42 MAP kinase by protein phosphatase 2A and a protein tyrosine phosphatase, but not CL100, in various cell lines
TLDR
The rapid inactivation of p42mapk initiated five minutes after stimulation of endothelial, adipose and chromaffin cells with growth factor, and was initiated by the major vanadate-sensitive Tyr 185-specific phosphatase, explaining why dephosphorylation of Thr 183 is rate-limiting for p42 mapk inactivation in PC12 cells after stimulation with EGF.

TLDR
It is shown that PP-1N alpha can also be activated 4-fold by phosphorylation of NIPP-1 with casein kinase-2, resulting in an enzyme with an activity close to that of the free catalytic subunit. Expand

The structures of four protein-serine kinases have been solved and have revealed a common structural core containing the highly conserved residues in the catalytic domain, providing insights into substrate selectivity and protein kinase activation. Expand
Cell cycle analysis of the activity, subcellular localization, and subunit composition of human CAK (CDK-activating kinase)
TLDR
A molecular characterization of a human p40MO15 homologue and its associated CAK activity suggests that the phosphorylation state of threonine 161 in p34cdc2 (and the corresponding residue in other cdks) may be regulated primarily by the availability of the cdk/cyclin substrates, and by phosphatase(s). Expand
Membrane localization of the kinase which phosphorylates p34cdc2 on threonine 14.
TLDR
It is shown that a purified membrane fraction, in the absence of cytoplasm, can promote phosphorylation of cdc2 on both Thr 14 and Tyr 15, suggesting the existence of at least two distinctly localized subpopulations of cDC2 Tyr 15-directed kinases. Expand
Control of MAP kinase activation by the mitogen-induced threonine/tyrosine phosphatase PAC1
TLDR
Several lines of evidence are presented indicating that PAC1 is a physiologically relevant MAP kinase phosphatase, and that Recombinant PAC1 in vitro is a dual-specific Thr/Tyr phosphat enzyme with stringent substrate specificity for MAP kinases. Expand
