The reversible phosphorylation of proteins is accomplished by opposing activities of kinases and phosphatases. Relatively few protein serine/threonine phosphatases (PSPs) control the specific dephosphorylation of thousands of phosphoprotein substrates. Many PSPs, exemplified by protein phosphatase 1 (PP1) and PP2A, achieve substrate specificity and regulation through combinatorial interactions between conserved catalytic subunits and a large number of regulatory subunits. Other PSPs… Expand
Controlling Ser/Thr protein phosphatase PP1 activity and function through interaction with regulatory subunits.
TLDR
This chapter shall introduce PP1C and review the most relevant families of PP1 C regulatory subunits, with particular emphasis in describing the structural basis for their interaction. Expand
Structural basis for protein phosphatase 1 regulation and specificity
TLDR
Recent advances in structural studies of PP1 holoenzyme complexes are discussed and the new insights these studies have provided into the molecular basis ofPP1 regulation and specificity are summarized. Expand
Ser/Thr protein phosphatases in fungi: structure, regulation and function
TLDR
This work pre-sent the members of this family of enzymes, collectively called Ser/Thr protein phosphatases, to S. cerevisiae and other fungal species, and review the most recent findings concerning their regu-lation and the roles they play in the most diverse aspects of cell biology. Expand
Interactor-guided dephosphorylation by protein phosphatase-1.
TLDR
The surface of PP1 contains many binding sites for short PP1-docking motifs that are combined by PIPs to create aPP1-binding code that is universal, specific, degenerate, nonexclusive, and dynamic. Expand
Determinants for Substrate Specificity of Protein Phosphatase 2A
TLDR
Recent studies that have advanced the understanding of the molecular determinants for PP2A substrate specificity are discussed. Expand
The split protein phosphatase system
TLDR
The set of potentially generalizable principles outlined in this review may facilitate the study of these poorly understood enzymes and the identification of their physiological substrates. Expand
Inhibitors of Serine/Threonine Protein Phosphatases: Biochemical and Structural Studies Provide Insight for Further Development.
TLDR
The catalytic mechanism of PPP-family phosphatases (PPPases) and the interactions of inhibitors that target these enzymes are compared to help identify selective inhibitors of this important group of metalloenzymes. Expand
Arabidopsis PPP family of serine/threonine protein phosphatases: many targets but few engines.
TLDR
A framework for understanding the PPP family is provided by exploring the fundamental role of the phosphatase regulatory subunits that drive catalytic engine specificity and their function is recognized to be as dynamic and as regulated as that of protein kinases. Expand
PP2A holoenzymes, substrate specificity driving cellular functions and deregulation in cancer.
TLDR
This review focuses on insights made toward the understanding on how the subunit composition and structure of PP2A holoenzymes mediates substrate specificity, the role of substrate modulation in the signaling of cellular division, growth, and differentiation, and its deregulation in cancer. Expand
The extended PP1 toolkit: designed to create specificity.
TLDR
Novel insights offer perspectives for the therapeutic targeting of PP1 by interfering with the binding of PIPs or substrates. Expand

The biochemical characterization and the atomic resolution structures of a soluble PPM phosphatase from the saprophyte Mycobacterium smegmatis in complex with different ligands provide putative snapshots along the catalytic cycle, which support an associative reaction mechanism that differs in some important aspects from the currently accepted model and reinforces the hypothesis of convergent evolution in PPs.
