14-3-3 proteins: a historic overview.

Author information

University of Edinburgh, School of Biological Sciences, Kings Buildings, Scotland, UK.


This chapter includes a historic overview of 14-3-3 proteins with an emphasis on the differences between potentially cancer-relevant isoforms on the genomic, protein and functional level. The focus will therefore be on mammalian 14-3-3s although many important developments in the field have involved Drosophila 14-3-3 proteins for example and the cross-fertilisation from parallel studies on plant 14-3-3 should not be underestimated. In the major part of this review I will attempt to focus on some novel data and aspects of 14-3-3 structure and function, in particular regulation of 14-3-3 isoforms by oncogene-related protein kinase phosphorylation and aspects of 14-3-3 research with which newcomers to the field may be less familiar.
