Using the murine teratocarcinoma cell line F9 we investigated the influence of serum stimulation and cisplatin treatment on the p53, CK2, MDM2 levels. Both treatments led to an increase of p53, though with different kinetics; the other proteins investigated were not affected. We present direct evidence by immunoprecipitation for an association of protein kinase CK2 holoenzyme (alpha2beta2), p53, and the ribosomal protein L5. The results suggest complexes between the CK2 holoenzyme and p53 but also p53/CKbeta complexes. Furthermore we provide evidence for the existence of high molecular mass complexes of CK2 in vivo. This is the first evidence that, under physiological conditions, protein kinase CK2 does not exist solely as a heterotetramer, but predominantly in association with other proteins.
