Abstract

We have purified to near homogeneity a Mr 22,000 GTP-binding protein from human platelet membranes and identified it as the smg-21 gene product (smg p21), having the same putative effector domain as the ras gene products, which we have purified to near homogeneity from bovine brain membranes and characterized. This purified human platelet smg p21 was phosphorylated by cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase. About one mol of phosphate was maximally incorporated into one mol of the protein. Only serine residue was phosphorylated. Both the guanosine 5'-(3-O-thio)-triphosphate (GTP gamma S)-bound and GDP-bound forms were phosphorylated with the same reaction velocity. The phosphorylation of smg p21 affected neither its GTP gamma S-binding nor GTPase activity. Human platelet smg p21 was not phosphorylated by protein kinase C. A Mr 24,000 GTP-binding protein partially purified from human platelet membranes was not phosphorylated by cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase or protein kinase C.
