Common elements in growth factor stimulation and oncogenic transformation: 85 kd phosphoprotein and phosphatidylinositol kinase activity.


The phosphorylation of proteins on tyrosine in vivo and in vitro was examined in 3T3 cells stimulated by platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) and transformed by polyoma middle T antigen (MTAg) by using an antibody directed against phosphotyrosine (P-tyr). Two common events were observed upon PDGF stimulation or MTAg transformation of cells: the appearance in the immunoprecipitates of an 85 kd phosphoprotein, and increased phosphatidylinositol (PI) kinase activity. In PDGF-stimulated cells, the 85 kd phosphoprotein and PI kinase activity appeared rapidly, within 1 min of growth factor addition. The PI kinase activity and 85 kd phosphorylation were also increased in anti-P-tyr immunoprecipitates from cells transformed by v-fms and v-sis, but not by SV40 T antigen. The presence of the tyrosine-phosphorylated 85 kd protein correlated with PI kinase activity during several purification steps. These results suggest that the 85 kd phosphoprotein, a putative PI kinase, is a substrate for both the PDGF receptor and MTAg/pp60c-src tyrosine kinase activities.
