High impact information on BMP2K

  • The BIKe nuclear localization signal is able to direct green fluorescent protein to the nucleus in transfected COS-7 cells [1].
  • Ten competitive male cyclists completed a Wingate Bike Test (WIN), a 30-min self-paced cycling performance bout (END), and a constant load, supramaximal cycling spring (SPN) to fatigue following 5 d of oral supplementation (5,000 with inosine and placebo [2].
  • Changes in BMP2K and PRMT3 were confirmed at mRNA and protein levels, in vitro and in vivo [3].
