Abstract

Minimum substrate requirements for nuclear NII kinase (casein II kinase) were analyzed with synthetic peptides modeled according to amino acid composition of phosphopeptides isolated from chromatin. Uncharged blocked peptide termini decreased the requirement for acidic clusters neighboring the phosphate acceptor amino acid (serine) such that only one group immediately N-terminal to serine was sufficient for kinase activity. Studies on peptide interaction with DNA showed that the model phosphopeptides bound to DNA only in the phosphorylated form suggesting involvement of phosphorylation in protein-DNA interactions yet to be identified.
