smg p21B/rap1B p21, a member of ras p21-like small GTP-binding protein superfamily, has been shown to be phosphorylated by cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase A). We show here that this protein was also phosphorylated by cyclic GMP-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase G) in a cell-free system. The same serine residue (Ser179) in the C-terminal region was phosphorylated by both protein kinases G and A. The Km and Vmax values of smg p21B for protein kinase G were 5 × 10-7 M and 4 × 10-9 mol/min/mg, and those values for protein kinase A were 1 × 10-7 M and 3 × 10-8 mol/min/mg.
