A mutagenesis-based screen to rapidly identify phosphorylation sites in mitogen-activated protein kinase substrates.

Identification and characterization of protein phosphorylation sites often requires mass spectrometric analysis, which is not trivial or accessible to many laboratories. Here, a targeted strategy to mutagenize putative phosphorylation sites within mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) substrates is described. This employs a combination of standard type II… (More)
