14-3-3, alpha, beta (Protein 1054, Protein Kinase C Inhibitor Protein 1, brain protein 14-3-3, beta Isoform, Tyrosine 3-monooxygenase/tryptophan 5-monooxygenase activation protein, beta polypeptide, protein kinase C inhibitor protein-1)
Description:
14-3-3 proteins are a family of small, widely expressed, highly conserved cytosolic proteins. 14-3-3 proteins bind to and in uence the activities of a diverse group of molecules involved in signal transduction, cell cycle regulation and apoptosis including Raf, PKC, Bad, Cbl, and c-Bcr. Interactions between 14-3-3 and target proteins are strongly in uenced by the phosphorylation state of 14-3-3 and the target protein. 14-3-3 expression is particularly high in certain neural tissues and studies in Drosophila have established a role for 14-3-3 proteins in nervous system development and function. Recently, a dimeric 14-3-3 protein was determined to be an essential cofactor for Raf kinase activity.
