Methods and compositions for regulating protein-protein interactions

Image Number 7 for United States Patent #6495376.

The invention relates to methods and compositions of WW-domains as phosphoserine and phosphothreonine binding modules. The WW-domain containing polypeptides of the invention can be used, for example, to regulate cell growth; to treat neurodegenerative diseases; to screen for substances that modulated interactions between WW-domain containing polypeptides and phosphorylated ligands; as drug targeting vehicles; to direct protein degradation; and in the treatment of certain diseases or conditions characterized by aberrant WW-domain containing polypeptides or their ligands.
