About 30% of human tumours contain a mutation in one of the three ras genes leading to the production of p21ras oncoproteins that are thought to make a major contribution to the transformed phenotype of the tumour. The biochemical mode of action of the ras proteins is unknown but as they bind GTP and GDP and have an intrinsic GTPase activity, they may(More)
In the present study, the molecular cloning and characterization of a 49-kDa form of casein kinase (CK)I from Dictyostelium discoideum is reported. The predicted amino acid sequence shares 70% identity with the catalytic domain of the mammalian delta and epsilon isoforms, Drosophila CKIepsilon and Schizosaccharomyces pombe Hhp1, and 63% identity with Hrr25,(More)
