    Program in Apoptosis and Cell Death Research, Burnham Institute for Medical Research, La Jolla, California 92037, USA
    J Biol Chem 282:26217-24. 2007
    ..Using these synthetic substrates we reveal that the SUMO domain enhances catalysis of SENP1, -2, -5, -6, and -7, demonstrating substrate-induced activation of SENPs by SUMOs...
  2. pmc Positional-scanning fluorigenic substrate libraries reveal unexpected specificity determinants of DUBs (deubiquitinating enzymes)
    Marcin Drag
    Apoptosis and Cell Death Research, Burnham Institute for Medical Research, La Jolla, CA 92037, USA
    Biochem J 415:367-75. 2008
    ..Together, our results reveal the importance of the dual features of (1) substrate specificity and (2) the mechanism of ubiquitin binding in determining deubiquitination by this group of proteases...
  3. ncbi request reprint Activity profiling of human deSUMOylating enzymes (SENPs) with synthetic substrates suggests an unexpected specificity of two newly characterized members of the family
    Marcin Drag
    Apoptosis and Cell Death Research Program, Burnham Institute for Medical Research, La Jolla, CA 92037, USA
    Biochem J 409:461-9. 2008
    ..We also show that SENP6 and 7 have an unexpected specificity that distinguishes them from other members of the family, implying that, in contrast to previous predictions, their natural substrate(s) may not be SUMO conjugates...
  4. ncbi request reprint Activation and substrate specificity of caspase-14
    Jowita Mikolajczyk
    The Program in Apoptosis and Cell Death Research, The Burnham Institute, 10901 North Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla, California 92037, USA
    Biochemistry 43:10560-9. 2004
    ..The results obtained with human caspase-14 classify this enzyme as a cytokine activator, but the mouse enzyme shows preferences similar to apical apoptotic caspases...

    J Biol Chem 287:39470-9. 2012
    ..Our study thus provides proof-of-concept for the design of inhibitors and probes that may contribute both to a better understanding of the role of K7L in the virus life cycle and the design of novel anti-virals...
