Studies on the mechanism of phosphorylation of synthetic polypeptides by a calf thymus cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase.

Synthetic polypeptides were employed as substrates in kinetic analyses of the reaction mechanism for the catalytic subunit of a cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (ATP:protein phosphotransferase, EC 2.7.1.37) from calf thymus. This enzyme preparation was shown to catalyze the transfer of phosphate from ATP to histone H1 from calf thymus, as well as to two… CONTINUE READING
