Abstract


Regulation of protein kinase A (PKA) by binding of cAMP to the regulatory subunit and the resulting release of the active catalytic subunit is a very well established mechanism of kinase activation. We have shown recently that PKA in budding yeast is also subject to an additional level of regulation that that modulates its activity in response to nutrient availability. Nutrient regulation of PKA activity requires a pair of proteins, Gpb1 and Gpb2, that contain several kelch repeats, a sequence motif that predicts that they fold into a beta-propeller structure. The regulatory process mediated by Gpb1 and Gpb2 causes an increase in the stability and phosphorylation of the PKA regulatory subunit Bcy1 in response to low extracellular glucose concentrations. Phosphorylation of serine-145 of Bcy1 controls its stability, and other phosphorylation events at the cluster of serines at positions 74-84 correlate with changes in nutrient availability. Here we present data consistent with a model in which the effects of Gpb1 and Gpb2 on Bcy1 are an indirect consequence of their primary effects on the PKA catalytic subunits.
