cAMP-dependent protein kinase A (PKA), ubiquitously expressed in mammalian cells, regulates a plethora of cellular processes through its ability to phosphorylate many protein substrates, including transcription factors, ion channels, apoptotic proteins, transporters, and metabolic enzymes. The PKA catalytic subunit has two phosphorylation sites, a well-studied site in the activation loop (Thr(197)) and another site in the C-terminal tail (Ser(338)) for which the role of phosphorylation is unknown. We show here, using in vitro studies and experiments with S49 lymphoma cells, that cis-autophosphorylation of Ser(338) occurs cotranslationally, when PKA is associated with ribosomes and precedes posttranslational phosphorylation of the activation loop Thr(197). Ser(338) phoshorylation is not required for PKA activity or formation of the holoenzyme complex; however, it is critical for processing and maturation of PKA, and it is a prerequisite for phosphorylation of Thr(197). After Thr(197) and Ser(338) are phosphorylated, both sites are remarkably resistant to phosphatases. Phosphatase resistance of the activation loop, a unique feature of both PKA and PKG, reflects the distinct way that signal transduction dynamics are controlled by ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.
