Type II cAMP-dependent protein kinase is associated with the rabbit kidney brush border membranes.


Journal Article

Photolabelling with 32P-8-azido-cAMP identified a major cAMP-binding protein (54 kDa) in isolated rabbit renal apical membranes, whose labelling was competitively inhibited by cAMP. Membrane associated cAMP-binding polypeptides were extensively purified by affinity chromatography on cAMP-Sepharose. The 54 kDa polypeptide represented 70-80% of the total protein eluted with cAMP. This protein was rapidly phosphorylated by the catalytic subunit of cAMP-dependent protein kinase, with a shift in its apparent mobility on SDS-PAGE to Mr 56/58,000. The phosphopeptide maps of autophosphorylated rat skeletal muscle RII and rabbit kidney 56/58 kDa proteins were essentially identical. Western immuno-blot analysis, using antibodies generated against purified rat RI and RII, indicated preferential cross-reactivity of rabbit kidney 54 kDa protein with anti-RII antibodies. The data demonstrates the specific association of the regulatory subunit of type II cAMP dependent protein kinase with rabbit renal brush border membranes.
