In the present study, we have compared the mode of action of the v-abl protein in the regulation of gene expression with those of serine/threonine protein kinases such as protein kinase C, cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase, and the activated c-raf protein, by measuring the transcriptional activity of the serum-response element, the 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA)-response element, and the cyclic AMP-response element in NIH3T3 cells transfected with the v-abl gene. The results indicate that the v-abl protein stimulates the serum-response element and the TPA-response element, but not the cyclic AMP-response element, in a manner similar to that of the activated c-raf protein, but different from those of protein kinase C and cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase.
