The glycogen-associated form of protein phosphatase-1 (PP-1G) comprises a 37-kDa catalytic (C) subunit and a 161-kDa glycogen-binding (G) subunit. In the preceding paper in this issue of the journal we showed that the C subunit is released from PP-1G in response to phosphorylation of the G subunit by cAMP-dependent protein kinase. We now show that at 0.15-0.2 M KCl the phosphorylase phosphatase activity of glycogen-bound PP-1G is 5-8 times higher than that of released C subunit or unbound PP-1G, which are strongly inhibited at these ionic strengths. The activity of glycogen-bound PP-1G towards glycogen synthase was about 5-fold higher than that of released C subunit at 0.15M KCl. Studies wit..
