c-Yes was purified 322-fold from a rat liver plasma membrane fraction to a single 60-kDa band on SDS-PAGE. The purified protein contained essentially no phosphotyrosine residues and was autophosphorylated with Mg2+. ATP exclusively at tyrosine residues with a concomitant increase in the protein-tyrosine kinase activity. The autophosphorylated c-Yes was(More)
Human erythrocyte protein phosphatase 2A, which comprises a 34-kDa catalytic C subunit, a 63-kDa regulatory A subunit and a 74-kDa regulatory B'' (delta) subunit, was phosphorylated at serine residues of B'' in vitro by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (A-kinase). In the presence and absence of 0.5 microM okadaic acid (OA), A-kinase gave maximal incorporation(More)
A Mn2+-dependent protein phosphatase 2A which is composed of a 34 kDa catalytic C' subunit and a 63 kDa regulatory A' subunit, was purified from human erythrocyte cytosol. C' and A' produced V8- and papain-peptide maps identical to those of the 34 kDa catalytic C and the 63 kDa regulatory A subunits of the Mn2+-independent conventional protein phosphatase(More)
Based on amino acid sequence data of a 74-kDa regulatory subunit (B" or delta) of a human heterotrimeric protein phosphatase 2A, a cDNA encoding the subunit was isolated from a human cerebral cortex library. The cDNA had an open reading frame encoding an M(r) 66,138 protein of 570 amino acids. Bacterial expression of the cDNA yielded a protein(More)
A 74-kDa delta/B" subunit was isolated by heparin-Sepharose column chromatography from human erythrocyte protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) consisting of a 34-kDa catalytic subunit (alpha/C) and 63- and 74-kDa regulatory subunits (beta/A and delta/B") in a ratio of 1:1:1. The purified delta/B" was used as an immunogen in mice, to prepare specific antisera(More)
Human erythrocyte Mn(2+)-dependent (C'A') and -independent (CA) protein-serine/threonine phosphatase (PP) 2A are composed of 34-kDa catalytic C' and C subunits, in which the metal dependency resides, and 63-kDa regulatory A' and A subunits, respectively. Each catalytic and regulatory subunit gave the same V8- and papain-peptide maps, respectively.(More)
Two cDNAs for possible splicing variants of a 74-kDa regulatory subunit (B" or delta) of human protein phosphatase 2A, were isolated. These variants were identified from human cerebral cortex by library screening and PCR, and designated delta1 and delta3 isoforms, while the previously reported isoform [Tanabe et al. (1996) FEBS Lett. 379, 107-1111 was(More)
BACKGROUND Protein phosphatase 2A (PP2A) is a serine/threonine phosphatase distributed in eukaryotes from yeast to human, and plays pivotal roles in diverse cellular functions such as metabolism, cell cycle progression, gene expression and development. PP2A holoenzyme is a heterodimer of a catalytic subunit C and a regulatory subunit A, or a heterotrimer of(More)
A heterodimeric form, CA, of protein-serine/threonine phosphatase (PP) 2A purified from human erythrocytes was dissociated into a 34-kDa catalytic subunit C and 63-kDa inactive subunit A by Sephacryl S-200 gel filtration in the presence of 6 M urea. Reassociation of the C- and A-subunits in the absence of urea suppressed the PP activity of the C subunit(More)
