Characterization of insulin-stimulated microtubule-associated protein kinase. Rapid isolation and stabilization of a novel serine/threonine kinase from 3T3-L1 cells.


A protein kinase, termed microtubule-associated protein (MAP) kinase, which phosphorylates microtubule-associated protein 2 (MAP-2) in vitro and is stimulated 1.5-3-fold in extracts from insulin-treated 3T3-L1 cells has been identified (Ray, L.B., and Sturgill, T.W. (1987) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 84, 1502-1506). Here, we describe chromatographic… (More)
