Close proximity of phosphorylation sites to ligand in the phosphoproteome of the extreme thermophile Thermus thermophilus HB8.

We performed phosphoproteome analysis of proteins from the extremely thermophilic Gram-negative eubacterium Thermus thermophilus HB8 using gel-free mass spectrometric method. We identified 52 phosphopeptides from 48 proteins and determined 46 phosphorylation sites: 30 on serine, 12 on threonine, and 4 on tyrosine. The identified phosphoproteins are known to… CONTINUE READING
