Examples

  • These calcium ion channels can be closed by the action of an enzyme called phosphoprotein phosphatase which dephosphorylates the proteins.

    Alcohol and The Addictive Brain

  • Preclinical studies also suggest that VimpatĀ® binds to the collapsin response mediator protein-2 (CRMP-2), a phosphoprotein which is mainly expressed in the nervous system and is involved in neuronal differentiation and control of axonal outgrowth.

  • To compare I also randomized the phosphorylation sites keeping the total number of phosphorylation sites fixed but not restricting the number of phosphorylation sites within each specific phosphoprotein.

  • When randomizing the phosphorylation sites within each phosphoprotein, keeping the number of phosphorylation sites in each specific phosphoproteins constant the average R-squared is higher than the observed with the experimentally determined phosphorylation sites pink curve.

  • The observed correlation would appear to be significantly higher than random if we allow the random phosphorylation sites to be drawn from any phosphoprotein without constraining the number of phosphorylation sites in each specific protein blue curve.

    Translationally optimal codons do not appear to significantly associate with phosphorylation sites

  • In order to properly control for this observation I calculated the correlation observed in figure 1 randomizing the phosphorylation sites within each phosphoprotein.

    Translationally optimal codons do not appear to significantly associate with phosphorylation sites

  • However, what you ask in your ROC plot is not whether each phosphorylation site is correct but whether the protein is a phosphoprotein.

    Prediction of phospho-proteins from sequence

  • In cardiac muscle, SERCA2a can associate with a 52-amino acid transmembrane phosphoprotein, phospholamban (PLN) [1].
