Problem-Solving Test: "In Vitro" Protein Kinase A Reaction
Szeberenyi, Jozsef
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v37 n5 p309-311 Sep-Oct 2009
Phosphorylation of proteins by protein kinases is an important mechanism in the regulation of protein activity. Among hundreds of protein kinases present in human cells, PKA, the first kinase discovered, belongs to the most important and best characterized group of these enzymes. The author presents an experiment that analyzes the "in vitro" phosphorylation of cellular proteins by PKA and other protein kinases. Before dealing with the experiment, the author presents multiple-choice question (MCQ) about PKA. Correct answers and explanations to the questions are provided. (Contains 1 figure.)
