BioEssays Review on Mitotic Phosphatase Specificity now Online

Posted on


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 PubMed

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 phosphosite and surrounding amino acids affect interactions with phosphatase/s and help determine the dephosphorylation of individual phosphorylation sites during mitotic exit.
