A Ca2+, calmodulin-dependent protein kinase from rat brain with a MW of 640,000 phosphorylated calmodulin-sensitive phosphodiesterase from the brain cytosol. The Km of the enzyme for the phosphodiesterase was 5.0 μM and the Vmax was 212 nmol/mg/min. The amount of phosphate incorporated into the phosphodiesterase was 0.7 mol/mol subunit. Phosphorylation of the phosphodiesterase enhanced the enzyme activity by about 20% for hydrolysis of a higher concentration of cyclic AMP.
