  • We have recently shown that glycogen synthase kinase 3beta (GSK3beta) phosphorylates the microtubule-associated protein (MAP) 1B in an in vitro kinase assay and in cultured cerebellar granule cells. Mapping studies identified a region of MAP1B high in serine-proline motifs that is phosphorylated by GSK3beta. Here we show that COS cells, transiently transfected with both MAP1B and GSK3beta, express high levels of the phosphorylated isoform of MAP1B (MAP1B-P) generated by GSK3beta. To investigate… CONTINUE READING
