Identification of the dual specificity and the functional domains of the cardiac-specific protein kinase TNNI3K

, : Identification of the dual specificity and the functional domains of the cardiac-specific protein kinase TNNI3K. General Physiology and Biophysics 26(2): 104-109

Molecular cloning of cardiac troponin I-interacting kinase (TNNI3K), a novel cardiac-specific protein kinase containing seven N-terminal ankyrin (ANK) repeats followed by a protein kinase domain and a C-terminal Ser-rich domain, has previously been reported. In the present study, we show that the C-terminal functional region of TNNI3K negatively regulates the kinase activity, and the N-terminal ANK domain is necessary for autophosphorylation. An in vitro kinase assay shows that TNNI3K exhibits dual-specific kinase activity and forms dimers or oligomers that may be necessary for its activation.

Reactive oxygen intermediates are involved in monocyte-mediated cytotoxicity, whereas reactive nitrogen intermediates are employed by macrophages in tumor cell killing. Freshly isolated human blood monocytes were spontaneously cytotoxic toward K562 tumor cells. During culture of the monocytes in vitro cytotoxicity decreased during the first 48 h but tumoricidal competence was restored after 3 to 4 days in vitro....
