Abstract:The ability of three isoforms of protein kinase CK1 (alpha, gamma(1), and delta) to phosphorylate the N-terminal region of p53 has been assessed using either recombinant p53 or a synthetic peptide reproducing its 1-28 sequence. Both substrates are readily phosphoylated by CK1delta and CK1alpha, but not by the gamma isoform. Affinity of full size p53 for CK1 is 3 orders of magnitude higher than that of its N-terminal peptide (K (m) 0.82 muM vs 1.51 mM). The preferred target is S20, whose phosphorylation critica… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
