Regulation Of Egf Receptor Dynamics By Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases, Calixte Monast
Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations
The phosphorylated epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) initiates intracellular signaling processes that regulate cell growth, survival, and migration, and disregulated EGFR-mediated signaling occurs in many cancers. While the processes that lead to EGFR activation and phosphorylation have been studied in detail, quantitative aspects of the spatiotemporal regulation of EGFR by protein tyrosines phosphatases (PTPs) are not well understood. To begin to address this, we developed a new compartmentalized mechanistic model of EGFR phosphorylation dynamics and used it to interpret quantitative biochemical measurements to show that EGFR is dephosphorylated at the plasma membrane and in the cell interior with a time ...
