The casein kinase 1α gene of Drosophila melanogaster is developmentally regulated and the kinase activity of the protein induced by DNA damage
We report the molecular cloning and characterisation of the first CK1 (casein kinase) gene of Drosophila melanogaster (dmCK1). The protein sequence (DMCK1) shares significant homology with other mammalian CK1 protein kinases ...
The Catalytic Subunit of cAMP‐Dependent Protein Kinase from Ascaris suum The Cloning and Structure of a Novel Subtype of Protein Kinase A
A complete cDNA clone encoding the catalytic subunit of cAMP‐dependent protein kinase of Ascaris suum was constructed from two overlapping partial clones. The encoded sequence of 337 ammo acids is 48 % identical with the ...
Role of the carboxyl terminus on the catalytic activity of protein kinase CK2α subunit
Protein kinase CK2 (also known as casein kinase 2) has catalytic (α, α′) and regulatory (β) subunits. The role of carboxyl amino acids in positions from 324 to 328 was studied for Xenopus laevis CK2α. Deletions and mutations ...
CK2α/CK1α chimeras are sensitive to regulation by the CK2β subunit
The effect of CK2β on the activity of CK2α and other protein kinases that can bind this regulatory subunit is not fully understood. In an attempt to improve our understanding of this effect, chimeras of CK2α and CK1α have ...
