Identification of phosphorylation sites on murine nuclear lamin C by RP-HPLC and microsequencing.

Isolated interphase lamin C, obtained from Ehrlich ascites tumor cells, was digested by Lys-C endoproteinase, the resulting peptides separated by reversed-phase HPLC and subjected to microsequencing in order to identify phosphorylation sites in interphase and following phosphorylation in vitro by cdc2-kinase, protein kinase C (PKC) and protein kinase A (PKA), respectively. Nuclear lamin C showed partial phosphorylation of Ser392 and Ser409, and possibly Ser407 in interphase. Phosphorylation was increased in response to cdc2-kinase at Ser390 and Ser392 and to PKC at Ser572. The N-terminal peptide (aa 1-32) containing consensus sequences for the 3 kinases was phosphorylated by cdc2-kinase, PKC and PKA. The sequence data suggests that multiple molecular switches via lamina modification control the dynamic behaviour of the nucleoskeleton during the cell cycle.
