LIM Domain Kinase 1 (LIMK1), Human Kinase Domain; A Target Enabling Package
Loss of the translational repressor FMRP in fragile X syndrome causes upregulation of the type II BMP receptor BMPR2 and its non-canonical signalling via the kinase LIMK1. LIMK1 performs inhibitory phosphorylation on cofilin proteins blocking their actin-severing activity. Excessive BMPR2-LIMK1 activation was associated with dendritic spine and behavioural defects in animal models that could be rescued by BMPR2 knockdown or LIMK1 inhibition. Here we present a target enabling package for the t...Expand abstract
