Phosphorylation on protein and carbohydrate moieties of a lysosomal arylsulfatase B variant in human lung cancer transplanted into athymic mice.

Human lung cancer transplanted into athymic mice contains predominantly an acidic variant (designated B1) of lysosomal arylsulfatase B. B1 enzyme was suggested to be phosphorylated and sialylated (Gasa, S., Makita, A., Kameya, T., Kodama, T., Koide, T., Tsumuraya, M., and Komai, T. (1981) Eur. J. Biochem. 116, 497-503). In order to determine the localization of phosphate in B1 enzyme, we labeled in vivo the transplanted tumor with [32P]H3PO4 or [3H]glucosamine and purified B1 enzyme by immunoprecipitation. Bio-Gel chromatography of the labeled B1 enzyme treated with endoglycosidase H demonstrated that both the excluded and included materials were labeled with 32P and 3H. From acid hydrolysate of the excluded materials, phosphorylated serine and threonine were detected. Protein phosphorylation of arylsulfatase was confirmed by in vitro labeling experiments with [gamma-32P]ATP. By incubation of the tumor homogenate with ATP followed by isolation of the enzymes, B1 enzyme had a significant amount of radioactivity, whereas the B enzyme had little; by exogenous protein kinase, partially purified B enzyme was phosphorylated 35 times more than B1 enzyme. Acid hydrolysate of the included materials in the Bio-Gel column demonstrated mannose 6-phosphate and an unknown phosphorylated compound which migrates more than Man-6-P on electrophoresis and chromatography.[1]
