We used an in vitro cuticle bioassay to investigate the effects of 2 alkylphenolic compounds--2,4-bis-(dimethylbenzyl) phenol (compound 3) and bisphenol A (BPA; 4,4'-dihydroxy-2,2-diphenylpropane (also referred to as 4,4'-(propan-2-ylidene) diphenol))--on tyrosine incorporation during the hardening of new cuticle following lobster molting.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Some cancers can be effectively treated with drugs inhibiting proteins known as receptor tyrosine kinases, but not those cancers caused by mutations in the KRAS gene.
2002), acquisition of a special motility known as hyperactivation (Si and Okuno, 1999) and increase in protein tyrosine phosphorylation (Visconti et al.
Abstract EphB4 is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is expressed on epithelial cells during fetal life.
Tyrosine is the pre-cursor to neurotransmitters such as dopamine (responsible for movement) and norepinephrine (adrenaline).
The investigators compared the amounts of noradrenergic proteins and the relative immunoreactivity of tyrosine hydroxylase in the postmortem brain tissue of seven long-term smokers and nine nonsmokers (Arch.
This mutation encodes an enzyme, Bcr-Abl tyrosine kinase, that causes white blood cells to proliferate.
Pure tyrosine can increase the production of two neurotransmitters--dopamine and norepinephrine--as well as epinephrine, which is released from the adrenal gland when blood sugar falls too low or when you are under severe physical stress or acute, psychological stress that's great enough to raise your heart rate.
