The subcellular distribution of protein kinase activity in isolated islets of Langerhans was determined. The majority (70%) of cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase activity was located in the S-100 (soluble) fraction, while the majority (42%) of cyclic AMP-independent activity was located in the solublised P-100 (containing mitochondria, secretory granules and microsomes) fraction. Partial characterisation of the islet cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase activity revealed the presence of two isozymes designated Type I and Type II. Type II kinase was the predominant isozyme of the S-100 fraction and Type I was the predominant isozyme found in the solublised P-100 fraction. Nonidet-P40 (a non-ionic detergent) was found to activate the S-100 cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase activity, although no significant increase in protein kinase activity was observed when the P-0.6 (containing nuclei and cellular debris) fraction and P-100 fraction were solublised with Nonidet-P40. This activation was ...

An antiserum against the catalytic subunit C of cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase, isolated from bovine heart type II protein kinase, was produced in rabbits. Reaction of the catalytic subunit with antiserum and separation of the immunoglobulin G fraction by Protein A-Sepharose quantitatively removed the enzyme from solutions. Comparative immunotitration of protein kinases showed that the amount of antiserum required to eliminate 50% of the enzymic activity was identical for pure catalytic subunit, and for holoenzymes type I and type II. The reactivity of the holoenzymes with the antiserum was identical in the absence or the presence of dissociating concentrations of cyclic AMP. Most of the holoenzyme (type II) remains intact when bound to the antibodies as shown by quantification of the regulatory subunit in the supernatant of the immunoprecipitate. Titration with the antibodies also revealed the presence of a cyclic AMP-independent histone kinase in bovine heart protein kinase I preparations ...

The occurrence of endogenous substrate proteins for Ca2+-dependent protein kinase, augmented by either phospholipid or calmodulin, and for cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase was examined in homogenates and subcellular fractions of mouse pancreatic islets. Islet protein phosphorylation was enhanced by Ca2+-calmodulin; the major endogenous substrates in the homogenate were two proteins of Mr 53000 and 100000. The Mr-100000 phosphoprotein was localized to a 27000g-supernatant fraction, whereas the Mr-53000 phosphoprotein was present in a 27000g particulate fraction of mouse islets. In the presence of Ca2+, phosphatidylserine stimulated phosphorylation of 15 proteins, of Mr 17000-190000, in a 27000g-supernatant fraction. No effects of Ca2+ plus phosphatidylserine were observed in a 27000g particulate fraction of mouse islets. Examination of cyclic AMP-dependent protein phosphorylation revealed five substrate proteins, of Mr 23000-72000, present in the 27000g supernatant of mouse islets. No common ...

Lung cancer results when normal check and balance system of cell division is disrupted and ultimately the cells divide and proliferate in an uncontrollable manner forming a mass of cells in our body, known as tumor. Frequent mutations in Protein Kinase Domain alter the process of phosphorylation which results in abnormality in regulations of cell apoptosis and differentiation. Tyrosine Protein kinases and Serine/Threonine Protein Kinases are the two broad classes of protein kinases in accordance to their substrate specificity. The study of Tyrosine protein kinase and serine Kinase coding regions have the importance of sequence and structure determinants of cancer-causing mutations from mutation-dependent activation process. In the present study, we analyzed huge amounts of data extracted from various biological databases and NCBI. Out of the 534 proteins that may play a role in lung cancer, 71 proteins were selected that are likely to be actively involved in lung cancer. These proteins were evaluated by
Since the publication of Protein Kinases in 1994 many novel protein kinases have been discovered, but perhaps more importantly there have been dramatic advances in our understanding of the cellular functions of this remarkably diverse class of proteins. Protein Kinase Functions is not just an update of the previous edition but provides a new focus on the context and function of protein kinases, thus reflecting the recent advances in kinase biology.

The KinG database is a comprehensive collection of serine/threonine/tyrosine-specific kinases and their homologues identified in various completed genomes using sequence and profile search methods. The database hosted at http://hodgkin. mbu.iisc.ernet.in/~king provides the amino acid sequences, functional domain assignments and classification of gene products containing protein kinase domains. A search tool enabling the retrieval of protein kinases with specified subfamily and domain combinations is one of the key features of the resource. Identification of a kinase catalytic domain in the users query sequence is possible using another search tool. The occurrence and location of critical catalytic residues if the query has a catalytic kinase domain, recognition of non-kinase domains in the sequence and subfamily classification of the kinase in the query will help in deciphering the biological role of the kinase. This online compilation can also be used to compare the protein kinases of a given ...
Purpose : Protein kinases play an important role in several cell processes such as proliferation, transcription, and pathologic changes. Kinase inhibitors have thus been proposed for treatment against diseases including cancer. In ophthalmology, ROCK inhibitor has already been launched as an antiglaucoma drug in Japan. However, discovery of small molecule inhibitors for specific protein kinases is still challenging. This is because approximately 500 protein kinases exist and more than 2,000 other purine-binding proteins share similar ATP binding pockets of kinases. The purpose of this study was to develop an in silico method for identifying potential kinase inhibitors, and the anticancer drug axitinib was used as a representative kinase inhibitor. Methods : Sequences for 9 typical kinases were compared to VEGFR tyrosine kinase, the three amino acid sequences on the hinge region of each kinase were identified, and the surfaces of the ATP binding cavities in the kinases were analyzed in silico ...
The kinase complement of the human genome, the kinome, provided a start point for comprehensive investigation of protein phosphorylation. Manning et al. identified 518 protein kinase genes and 106 protein kinase pseudogenes in human (Manning et al., 2002 Science). Most protein kinases contain a conserved catalytic domain belonging to the eukaryotic protein kinase (ePK) superfamily (all other protein kinases are classified as atypical protein kinases, or aPKs). ePKs are classified into 7 major groups, including AGC, CAMK, CK1, CMGC, STE, TK, and TKL, and are subdivided into families, and sometimes subfamilies, based on the sequence of their ePK domains. All 518 human kinases are listed as following, users can clikc into the URL link to investigate the detail information about the kinase and their substrates. ...
In recent years, members of the protein kinase family have been discovered at an accelerated pace. Most were first described, not through the traditional biochemical approach of protein purification and enzyme assay, but as putative protein kinase amino acid sequences deduced from the nucleotide sequences of molecularly cloned genes or complementary DNAs. Phylogenetic mapping of the conserved protein kinase catalytic domains can serve as a useful first step in the functional characterization of these newly identified family members. ...
Antibodies raised against the protein encoded by a lacZ-CDC28 in-frame fusion were shown to immunoprecipitate the CDC28 product from yeast cell lysates. The polypeptide p36CDC28 is a phosphoprotein of apparent Mr 36,000. Immune complexes prepared from yeast cell lysates by using anti-CDC28 antibody were found to possess a protein kinase activity, as determined by the transfer of label from [gamma-32P]ATP to a coprecipitated Mr 40,000 protein of unknown identity or function (p40). This activity was absent or thermolabile when extracts were prepared from several different cdc28 temperature-sensitive strains. The protein kinase activity was dependent on Zn2+ and transferred phosphate specifically to serine and threonine residues.

TY - JOUR. T1 - ERK3 is a constitutively nuclear protein kinase. AU - Cheng, Mangeng. AU - Boulton, Teri G.. AU - Cobb, Melanie H.. PY - 1996/4/12. Y1 - 1996/4/12. N2 - The ERK3 cDNA predicts a protein of 62,000 in size with a C-terminal domain that extends 180 amino acids beyond the conserved core of ERK family protein kinases. Immunoblotting with antibodies raised to recombinant protein and to peptides from the catalytic core and three regions of the C-terminal tail revealed that ERK3 is the expected size and is ubiquitously expressed in a variety of cell lines and tissues. ERK3, unlike the MAP kinases ERK1 and ERK2, is localized in the nucleus in exponentially growing, quiescent, and growth factor-stimulated cells. If the 180 amino acids at its C terminus are deleted, the resulting ERK3 fragment of 45 kDa is still found primarily in the nucleus, indicating that the C terminus is not required for its localization. Recombinant ERK3 expressed in mammalian cells or in bacteria is a protein ...
Neurodegenerative disorders (Alzheimers, Parkinsons and Huntingtons disease) are characterised by the irreversible loss of nerve cell function. Protein kinases such as JNK and LRRK2 are major players in neurodegenerative disorders, however their mechanism of action is largely unknown. Even though our understanding of the physiological functions of these molecules is in its infancy. drug targeting strategies are already underway. Our lab uses a proteomics screen developed in the lab to identify protein kinase substrates. The identification of novel targets combined with biochemical, genetic and imaging approaches has revealed unexpected functions for kinases in neocortical development and provided mechanistic insight in neuronal disease ...

Histidine protein kinases (HPKs) are a large family of signal-transduction enzymes that autophosphorylate on a conserved histidine residue. HPKs form two-component signaling systems together with their downstream target proteins, the response regulators, which have a conserved aspartate in a so-called receiver domain that is phosphorylated by the HPK. Two-component signal transduction is prevalent in bacteria and is also widely used by eukaryotes outside the animal kingdom. The typical HPK is a transmembrane receptor with an amino-terminal extracellular sensing domain and a carboxy-terminal cytosolic signaling domain; most, if not all, HPKs function as dimers. They show little similarity to protein kinases that phosphorylate serine, threonine or tyrosine residues, but may share a distant evolutionary relationship with these enzymes. In excess of a thousand known genes encode HPKs, which are important for multiple functions in bacteria, including chemotaxis and quorum sensing, and in eukaryotes,
In the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevesiae, phosphorelay signaling systems that involve a three-step His-Asp-His-Asp phosphotransfer are involved in transmitting signals in response to cellular stress. The animation shows one example of such a phosphorelay system involved in yeast responses to changes in osmolarity. Under conditions of low osmolarity, a histidine-aspartate phosphorelay pathway transmits information that deactivates one signaling pathway and activates gene expression through another pathway. In response to high osmolarity, the Sln1 kinase that initiates the phosphorelay is inhibited and the Hog1 mitogen-activated protein kinase cascade is active. ...

Complement factor C3, recently found to contain covalently bound phosphate, was phosphorylated in vitro by cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase A) and Ca2+-activated, phospholipid-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase C). Both protein kinases phosphorylated the same serine residue(s) located in the C3a portion of the alpha-chain. In addition, protein kinase C phosphorylated the beta-chain to a lesser extent. Protein kinase A gave a maximal incorporation of 1 mol of phosphate/mol of C3 while that value with protein kinase C was 1.5 mol of phosphate/mol of C3. The velocity in pmol of [32P]phosphate/(min x unit kinase) was 20 times higher for protein kinase C than for protein kinase A although a 10 times lower ratio of protein kinase to C3 was used in the former case. The apparent Kmfor C3 was 2.6 µM when protein kinase C was used. The phosphorylated C3 was found to be more resistant to partial degradation by trypsin than unphosphorylated C3. It was also found that ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Phosphorylation of tyrosine hydroxylase by cyclic GMP - Dependent protein kinase. AU - Roskoski, R.. AU - Vulliet, Philip R. AU - Glass, D. B.. PY - 1987. Y1 - 1987. N2 - Tyrosine hydroxylase purified from rat pheochromycytoma was phosphorylated and activated by purified cyclic GMP-dependent protein kinase as well as by cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit. The extent of activation was correlated with the degree of phosphate incorporated into the enzyme. Comparable stoichiometric ratios (0.6 mol phosphate/mol tyrosine hydroxylase subunit) were obtained at maximal concentrations of either cyclic AMP-dependent or cyclic GMP-dependent protein kinases. The enzymes appeared to mediate the phosphorylation of the same residue based on the observation that incorporation was not increased when both enzymes were present. The major tryptic phosphopeptide obtained from tyrosine hydroxylase phosphorylated by each protein kinase exhibited an identical retention time following ...

A 36 kDa protein (P36) on the membrane was rapidly phosphorylated in vitro by the kinase and the phosphorylated amino acid was identified as phosphohistidine. Histidine phosphorylation of P36 was activated in vitro by recombinant Ras protein and GTP; both decreased Michaelis constant (Km) for ATP from 1.25 to 0.25 μM. The novel histidine kinase, products of which have been overlooked due to their acid lability, may participate in cellular signaling and peroxisome proliferators may perturb the pathway..

The induction of ornithine decarboxylase was studied following the stimulation of human peripheral blood lymphocytes with concanavalin A (ConA) (10 µg/ml). Following treatment with ConA, ornithine decarboxylase activity increased 4-5-fold between 6 and 12 hr of incubation and reached a peak level 10-12-fold above control (unstimulated) values by 48 hr. Increases in incorporation of [3H]uridine into acid-insoluble material followed a similar time course after the addition of ConA to lymphocytes. The rate of incorporation of [3H]thymidine into acid-insoluble material was maximal at 72 hr. The degree of activation of soluble cyclic 3,5-AMP-dependent protein kinase(s) was determined at various times following ConA stimulation. Between 1 and 2 hr after mitogen administration, the cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase activity ratio increased markedly and was 0.23 unit above control values by 4 hr. The activity ratio decreased between 4 and 8 hr and returned to higher values after incubation with the ...
Trans-activation of the DNA-damage signalling protein kinase Chk2 by T-loop exchange The protein kinase Chk2 (checkpoint kinase 2) is a major effector of the replication checkpoint. Chk2 activation is initiated by phosphorylation of Thr68, in the serine glutamine/threonine-glutamine cluster domain (SCD), by ATM. The phosphorylated SCD-segment binds to the FHA domain of a second Chk2 molecule, promoting dimerisation of the protein and triggering phosphorylation of the activation segment/T-loop in the kinase domain. We have now determined the structure of the kinase domain of human Chk2 in complexes with ADP and a small-molecule inhibitor debromohymenialdisine. The structure reveals a remarkable dimeric arrangement in which T-loops are exchanged between protomers, to form an active kinase conformation in trans. Biochemical data suggest that this dimer is the biologically active state promoted by ATM-phosphorylation, and also suggests a mechanism for dimerisation-driven activation of Chk2 by ...
