Activation of protein phosphatase-1 isoforms and glycogen synthase kinase-3 beta in muscle from mdx mice.


Three Protein Phosphatase-1 (PP1) isoforms (PP1 alpha, PP1 gamma-1 and PP1 delta) are found in skeletal muscle. These are bound to regulatory subunits, such as inhibitor 2 (I2) in the cytosol and G in the glycogen and microsomal fractions. In vitro, the PP1-12 complex is activated by Glycogen Synthase Kinase-3 (GSK-3 or FA). We investigated the activities… (More)
