    A secretory kinase complex regulates extracellular protein phosphorylation

    Jixin Cui et al.
    A pseudokinase in the secretory pathway, Fam20A, activates the real Golgi casein kinase, Fam20C, via a unique mechanism that is lost in human diseases.

    Phosphorylation of β-arrestin2 at Thr383 by MEK underlies β-arrestin-dependent activation of Erk1/2 by GPCRs

    Elisabeth Cassier et al.
    Phosphoproteomics identifies β-arrestin 2 phosphorylation at Thr383 by MEK as a key step of GPCR-induced Erk½ activation, thus providing new insight into the molecular mechanism underlying β-arrestin-dependent GPCR-operated signaling.

    A deleterious gene-by-environment interaction imposed by calcium channel blockers in Marfan syndrome

    Jefferson J Doyle et al.
    Calcium channel blockers accelerate aortic aneurysm and cause premature aortic rupture in a mouse model of Marfan syndrome through protein kinase C-mediated activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase.

    Biofilms: Take my breath away

    Vinai C Thomas, Paul D Fey
    A lack of oxygen activates a pathway that causes the bacterial cell wall to break down, which, in turn, aids bacterial biofilm development.
