The glycogen-bound form of protein phosphatase-1 (PP-1G) was previously purified as a heterodimer composed of a 37-kDa catalytic (C) subunit and a proteolytically sensitive 103-kDa glycogen-binding (G) subunit [Stråhlfors, P., Hiraga, A. & Cohen, P. (1985) Eur. J. Biochem. 149, 295-303]. In this paper we demonstrate by a variety of criteria that the intact G subunit is a 161-kDa protein, and that the 103-kDa species (now termed G') is itself a product of proteolysis. A second phosphorylation site for cAMP-dependent protein kinase (termed site 2) was identified on the G subunit. The site 2 serine was phosphorylated at a comparable rate to site 1, and near stoichiometric phosphorylation could ..
