Abstract

A heparin-activated protein kinase has been previously identified in rabbit skeletal muscle extracts (Z. Ahmad et al. (1985) FEBS Lett. 179, 96-100). Further study has indicated that this enzyme phosphorylates rabbit muscle glycogen synthase in the same tryptic peptide(s) as the protein kinase FA/GSK-3 (glycogen synthase kinase-3) and is able to activate the ATP-Mg2+-dependent protein phosphatase. These results indicate similarities in properties between the two protein kinases. Exposure of the heparinactivated enzyme to trypsin resulted in loss of heparin activation, from 3-fold to 1.3-fold. One hypothesis suggested by this result is that the enzyme FA/GSK-3 could be a derivative of the heparin-activated enzyme that has lost heparin sensitivity. The conceptual importance of this hypothesis is that it may provide a clue to the mode of regulation of this important class of protein kinases.
