Effects of phosphorylation on the structure of the G-protein receptor rhodopsin.

Abstract

Upon activation by light, rhodopsin is subject to phosphorylation by rhodopsin kinase at serine and threonine residues in the carboxyl terminal region of the protein. A 19 amino acid peptide that corresponds to the carboxyl terminal end of rhodopsin (residues 330-348) and contains these phosphorylation sites was synthesized. The structure of this peptide… (More)
