Identification of three protein kinases which phosphorylate threonyl-tRNA synthetase from rat liver.
Threonyl-tRNA synthetase is phosphorylated in Chinese hamster ovary cells labeled with 32Pi [(1984) J. Biol. Chem. 259, 11160-11161]. Phosphorylation of the purified synthetase from rat liver has been examined with five different protein kinases. Three of the enzymes phosphorylate the synthetase, protease activated kinase I, the cAMP-dependent protein kinase, and the Ca2+, phospholipid-dependent protein kinase. Phosphorylation occurs exclusively on seryl residues. Two-dimensional phosphopeptide maps of tryptic digests of the phosphorylated synthetase are distinct with each protein kinase. These data suggest that multiple phosphorylation of the synthetase may occur in vivo.
