Synthetic peptides corresponding to the active domain of the heat-stable inhibitor protein of cAMP-dependent protein kinase (Cheng, H.-C., Kemp, B. E., Pearson, R. B., Smith, A. J., Misconi, L., Van Patten, S. M., and Walsh, D. A. (1986) J. Biol. Chem. 261, 989-992) were tested as inhibitors of cGMP-dependent protein kinase. The peptides themselves were not substrates. cGMP-dependent protein kinase activity was assayed using histone H2B and two synthetic peptide substrates. Consistent with previous observations of other peptide inhibitors of this enzyme (Glass, D. B. (1983) Biochem. J. 213, 159-164), the inhibitory peptides had no effect on the phosphorylation of histone H2B, but they compet..
