BioEssays Review on Mitotic Phosphatase Specificity now Online

Great News, our review on how phosphatase specificity is controlled during mitosis has been re-published in BioEssays and is now Online! This review was originally published in Inside the Cell, which unfortunately has shut down. But the good news is that it is still Open Access, so that means its free for everyone to read! And is now also indexed in…


New Publication: Clinical Overview of MDM2/X-Targeted Therapies

Great news, we have a new Mini-Review published in Frontiers Oncology entitled "Clinical Overview of MDM2/X-Targeted Therapies", which is apart of the Research Topic Human tumor-derived p53 mutants: a growing family of oncoproteins Here is a little snippet from the Abstract to wet your appetite! MDM2 and MDMX are the primary negative regulators of p53, which under normal conditions maintain low intracellular…


New Review Article Published!! “Mechanisms Regulating Phosphatase Specificity During Mitotic Exit”

Great News, we have a new review article that has just been published online today in Inside the Cell! Its Open Access, so that means its free for everyone to read! During mitotic exit, phosphatases reverse thousands of phosphorylation events in a specific temporal order to ensure that cell division occurs correctly. This review explores how the physicochemical properties of the…


New Paper Published! More data on the global phosphorylation changes during early mitotic exit

Great news, we have another publication. This time its some extra data left over from our large mass spectrometry study we published in August in Molecular & Cellular Proteomics. This latest work we provide additional analysis of our large proteomics dataset and identify motifs that correlated strongly with phosphorylation status for each of the major mitotic kinases. These motifs could be used to predict…


Our latest Publication has received a F1000Prime Recommendation !

Great news our recent paper "Global phosphoproteomic mapping of early mitotic exit in human cells identifies novel substrate dephosphorylation motifs., Molecular & Cellular Proteomics, 2015 (DOI: 10.3410/f.725545508.793507630), has been recommended in F1000Prime as being of special significance in its field by F1000 Faculty Member Angus Nairn. Really glad to see that all our hard work and research is being found useful…
