  1. ncbi request reprint Fluorescence lifetime images and correlation spectra obtained by multidimensional time-correlated single photon counting
    W Becker
    Becker and Hickl GmbH, 12277 Berlin, Germany
    Microsc Res Tech 69:186-95. 2006
    ..We show that the same technique and the same hardware can be used for precision fluorescence decay analysis and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS) in selected spots of a sample...
  2. ncbi request reprint Fluorescence lifetime imaging by time-correlated single-photon counting
    W Becker
    Becker and Hickl GmbH, D 12277 Berlin, Germany
    Microsc Res Tech 63:58-66. 2004
    ..The technique can be used with almost any confocal or two-photon laser scanning microscope and works at any scanning rate. We demonstrate the application to samples stained with several dyes and to CFP-YFP FRET...
  3. ncbi request reprint Sequence characteristics, subcellular localization, and substrate specificity of DYRK-related kinases, a novel family of dual specificity protein kinases
    W Becker
    Institut fur Pharmakologie und Toxikologie, RWTH Aachen, D 52057 Aachen, Germany
    J Biol Chem 273:25893-902. 1998
    ..The heterogeneity of their subcellular localization and substrate specificity suggests that the kinases are involved in different cellular functions...

    S Leder
    Institut fur Pharmakologie und Toxikologie, RWTH Aachen, Aachen, D 52057, Germany
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 254:474-9. 1999
    ..These data suggest that DYRK1B is a muscle- and testis-specific isoform of DYRK1A and is involved in the regulation of nuclear functions...

    J Biol Chem 271:3488-95. 1996
    ..The data suggest that Dyrk is a dual specificity protein kinase that is regulated by tyrosine phosphorylation in the activation loop and might be a component of a signaling pathway regulating nuclear functions...
