Although, historically, kinases have been at the research forefront, a systems-centred approach reveals predominant roles for phosphatases in controlling the network response times and spatio-temporal profiles of signalling activities. Emerging evidence suggests that phosphatase kinetics are critical for network function and cell-fate decisions. Protein phosphatases operate as both immediate and delayed regulators of signal transduction, capable of attenuating or amplifying signalling. This versatility of phosphatase action emphasizes the need for systems biology approaches to understand cellular signalling networks and predict the cellular outcomes of combinatorial drug interventions.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Wiley Blackwell (Blackwell Publishing)||Journal:||FEBS Journal||Volume:||280||Issue:||2||Start page:||751||End page:||765||Copyright (published version):||2012 Wiley Blackwell (Blackwell Publishing)||Keywords:||computational modelling; drug discovery; drug intervention; MAP kinase; phosphatases; phosphatase-targeted therapies; signalling cascades; SHP2; spatiotemporal dynamics; systems biology||DOI:||10.1111/j.1742-4658.2012.08522.x||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
