Fructose 2,6-bisphosphate activates the cAMP-dependent phosphorylation of yeast fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase in vitro.


Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase purified from Saccharomyces cerevisiae is phosphorylated in vitro by a cAMP-dependent protein kinase. The phosphorylation reaction incorporates 1 mol of phosphate/mol of enzyme and is greatly stimulated by fructose 2,6-bisphosphate. Fructose 2,6-bisphosphate acts upon fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase, not on the protein kinase. The phosphorylation of fructose 1,6-bisphosphatase lowers its activity by about 50%. The characteristics of the phosphorylation reaction in vitro show that this modification is responsible for the inactivation of fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase observed in vivo.
