Brain 14-3-3 protein is an activator protein that activates tryptophan 5-monooxygenase and tyrosine 3-monooxygenase in the presence of Ca2+,calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II.

Abstract

We have found that the 14-3-3 protein, an acidic neuronal protein, is substantially identical to the 'activator' protein [(1981) J. Biol. Chem. 256, 5404-5409] that activates tryptophan 5-monooxygenase and tyrosine 3-monooxygenase in the presence of Ca2+, calmodulin dependent protein kinase II. This finding is based on the remarkable similarity of both these proteins in physicochemical, biochemical and immunochemical properties, as well as on detection for the 14-3-3 protein of an activator activity towards tryptophan 5-monooxygenase. The result suggests that the 14-3-3 protein plays a role in the regulation of serotonin and noradrenaline biosynthesis in brain.
