Perspectives on the application of nanotechnology in photodynamic therapy for the treatment of melanoma

PMCID: 4152551
PMID: 25317253
DOI: 10.3402/nano.v5.24381

[…] ing the period of treatment. In the case of PS used in clinical practice, such as 5-aminolevulinic acid (ALA), which is applied topically, and methyl aminolevulinate (MAL) applied intravenously (i.e. Phoscan and Photofrin), further specificity to cancer is reached because these molecules are pro-drugs, and thus need to be metabolized into active PS, protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), before light is applie […]


Muscarinic receptors stimulate AC2 by novel phosphorylation sites, whereas Gβγ subunits exert opposing effects depending on the G protein source

PMCID: 3465989
PMID: 22906005
DOI: 10.1042/BJ20120279
call_split See protocol

[…] U.S.A.). Wild-type rat AC2 was subcloned into pcDNA3 vector with an N-terminal HA tag. The potential PKC phosphorylation sites of AC2 were identified using NetPhos 2.0 [], GPS 2.1 [], PPSP 1.0 [] and PhoScan []. Any potential PKC phosphorylation site residues in AC2 were substituted to alanine or aspartic acid residues using the Phusion® high-fidelity polymerase kit (Finnzymes) following the manuf […]


The Musite open source framework for phosphorylation site prediction

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3040535
PMID: 21210988
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-11-S12-S9

[…] horylation-site prediction tools available before Musite, including DISPHOS [], NetPhos [], scan-x [], ScanSite [], NetPhosK [], GPS [], KinasePhos [], Predikin [], CRPhos [], AutoMotif [], pkaPS [], PhoScan [], PredPhospho [], and NetPhorest []. Machine learning techniques were adopted in most of these tools. Although there are general open-source machine learning frameworks such as BioWeka [] th […]


Short Linear Motifs recognized by SH2, SH3 and Ser/Thr Kinase domains are conserved in disordered protein regions

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 2559891
PMID: 18831792
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-9-S2-S26

[…] e in phosphorylation prediction accuracy because each method would reduce the false positives from the other method.This hypothesis was recently confirmed by an elegant study where a new method named PhoScan was elaborated to predict phosphorylation sites for specific protein kinases without using non-phosphorylated training data []. The authors have combined both the common (or disorder-based) an […]
