Delve deeper into electrophile signaling through “proteomics and beyond” in Trends in Biochemical Sciences

— Yimon Aye

To proteomics and beyond: Cell decision making shaped by reactive electrophiles Trends in Biochemical Sciences (Elsevier) — just accepted (September 2018) Link to paper Revolutionary proteomics strategies have enabled rapid profiling of the cellular targets of electrophilic small molecules. However, precise means to directly interrogate how these individual electrophilic modifications at low occupancy functionally reshape signaling (...)
