Post-translational modification of protein by tyrosine sulfation: active sulfate PAPS is the essential substrate for this modification.


In vitro tyrosine sulfation of recombinant proteins would be a valuable tool in converting those proteins expressed in prokaryotic vectors to their natural form. For this purpose tyrosylprotein sulfotransferase (TPST), the enzyme responsible for tyrosine sulfation of proteins, was characterized from a bovine liver Golgi preparation. TPST was active in a… (More)
