- Luciano B, Hsu S, Channavajhala P, Lin L, Cuozzo J. Phosphorylation of threonine 290 in the activation loop of Tpl2/Cot is necessary but not sufficient for kinase activity. J Biol Chem. 2004;279:52117-23 pubmed..Together these results showed that phosphorylation of Cot at Thr-290 is necessary but not sufficient for full kinase activity in the MEK/ERK pathway. ..
- Wang X, Lin H, Ng Eaton E, Downward J, Lodish H, Weinberg R. Expression cloning and characterization of the TGF-beta type III receptor. Cell. 1991;67:797-805 pubmed..This indicates that the type III receptor may regulate the ligand-binding ability or surface expression of the type II receptor. ..
- Lavallie E, Stahl M. Cloning of the flagellin gene from Bacillus subtilis and complementation studies of an in vitro-derived deletion mutation. J Bacteriol. 1989;171:3085-94 pubmed..Transport analysis of various flagellin gene mutations expressed in the hag deletion strain suggest that the extreme C-terminal portion of flagellin is functionally involved in export of the protein. ..
- Echelard Y, Epstein D, St Jacques B, Shen L, Mohler J, McMahon J, et al. Sonic hedgehog, a member of a family of putative signaling molecules, is implicated in the regulation of CNS polarity. Cell. 1993;75:1417-30 pubmed..Ectopic expression of Shh in the mouse CNS leads to the activation of floor plate-expressed genes. These results suggest that Shh may play a role in the normal inductive interactions that pattern the ventral CNS. ..
