Signal transduction through the vasoactive intestinal peptide receptor stimulates phosphorylation of the tyrosine kinase pp60c-src.

The present study demonstrates that signal transduction through a receptor lacking intrinsic tyrosine protein kinase activity involves a rapid and potent phosphorylation of a non-receptor tyrosine protein kinase in the membranes. Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) stimulates phosphorylation of a membrane protein with a M.W. of 56 KD (pp60) in the cultured chick embryonic retinal pigment epithelium. VIP stimulates phosphorylation of the pp60 with such efficiency and potency that the maximal phosphorylation has been observed at the earliest time (3 minutes at 1 x 10(-6)M VIP) and the lowest concentration (1 x 10(-11)M for 20 minutes) examined. Western blot analysis with a monoclonal antibody anti-pp60src (GD11, Parsons et al., J. Virol. 51, 272-282, 1984) indicates that the pp60 is the pp60c-src, a normal cell oncogene product with intrinsic tyrosine protein kinase activity.[1]
