Abstract

All of the known protein serine/threonine phosphatases are expressed in the brain. These enzymes participate in a variety of signaling pathways that modulate neuronal activity. The multifunctional activity of many serine/threonine phosphatases is achieved through their association with targeting proteins. Identification and analysis of targeting molecules has led to new insights into the functions of protein phosphatases in neuronal signaling. The recent use of transgenic mice has also increased our understanding of the physiological roles of these enzymes in the brain.
