Small molecule inhibitors of protein kinases are key tools for signal transduction research and represent a major class of targeted drugs. Recent developments in quantitative proteomics enable an unbiased view on kinase inhibitor selectivity and modes of action in the biological context. While chemical proteomics techniques utilizing quantitative mass spectrometry interrogate both target specificity and affinity in cellular extracts, proteome-wide phosphorylation analyses upon kinase inhibitor treatment identify signal transduction pathway and network regulation in an unbiased manner. Thus, critical information is provided to promote new insights into mechanisms of kinase signaling and their relevance for kinase inhibitor drug discovery. © 2014 American Chemical Society. Source

The present invention discloses a dysregulation of the KCNN3 gene and the protein products thereof in Alzheimers disease patients and individuals being at risk of developing Alzheimers disease. Based on this finding, the invention provides methods for diagnosing and prognosticating Alzheimers disease in a subject, and for determining whether a subject is at increased risk of developing Alzheimers disease. Furthermore, this invention provides therapeutic and prophylactic methods for treating and preventing Alzheimers disease and related neurodegenerative disorders using the KCNN3 gene and its corresponding gene products. Screening methods for modulating agents of neurodegenerative diseases are also disclosed.
