Protease-activated protein kinase in rat liver plasma membrane.


Upon limited proteolysis with trypsin, a cAMP and Ca2+-independent protein kinase was produced from rat liver plasma membrane. This enzyme showed a multifunctional capacity and phosphorylated calf thymus histone and rat liver ribosomal proteins. The molecular weight was estimated to be 5.0 X 10(4). When plasma membrane was treated with a buffer containing… (More)
