Approaches to Study Phosphatases.


:Phosphatases play key roles in normal physiology and diseases. Studying phosphatases has been both essential and challenging, and the application of conventional genetic and biochemical methods has led to crucial but still limited understanding of their mechanisms, substrates, and exclusive functions within highly intricate networks. With the advances in technologies such as cellular imaging and molecular and chemical biology in terms of sensitive tools and methods, the phosphatase field has thrived in the past years and has set new insights for cell signaling studies and for therapeutic development. In this review, we give an overview of the existing interdisciplinary tools for phosphatases, give examples on how they have been applied to increase our understanding of these enzymes, and suggest how they-and other tools yet barely used in the phosphatase field-might be adapted to address future questions and challenges.

  • Myricetin Reduces Toxic Level of CAG Repeats RNA in Huntington's Disease (HD) and Spino Cerebellar Ataxia (SCAs).

    abstract::Huntington's disease (HD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is caused by abnormal expansion of CAG repeats in the HTT gene. The transcribed mutant RNA contains expanded CAG repeats that translate into a mutant huntingtin protein. This expanded CAG repeat also causes mis-splicing of pre-mRNA due to sequestration of ...
