Thome M, Weil R. Post-translational modifications regulate distinct functions of CARMA1 and BCL10. Trends Immunol. 2007;28:281-8 pubmed
..Moreover, the study of BCL10 phosphorylation isoforms has revealed a new mechanism controlling BCL10 nuclear translocation and an unexpected role for BCL10 in the regulation of the actin cytoskeleton. ..
Jaworski M, Marsland B, Gehrig J, Held W, Favre S, Luther S, et al. Malt1 protease inactivation efficiently dampens immune responses but causes spontaneous autoimmunity. EMBO J. 2014;33:2765-81 pubmed publisher
..Thus, removal of the enzymatic activity of Malt1 efficiently dampens the immune response, but favors autoimmunity through impaired Treg development, which could be relevant for therapeutic Malt1-targeting strategies. ..
