Protein Phosphorylation in Control Mechanisms contains the proceedings of the Miami Winter Symposia entitled ""Protein Phosphorylation in Control Mechanisms,"" held on January 15-16, 1973, in Miami, Florida, and organized by the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Miami School of Medicine. The papers explore the role of protein phosphorylation in control mechanisms, including muscle metabolism and function, cell division, and histone and protamine binding to DNA. This volume is comprised of 28 chapters and begins with an overview of Earl W. Sutherland's scientific work and the involvement of cyclic AMP in enzyme inductions. The discussion then turns to the regulation of muscle metabolism and function by protein phosphorylation; the link between hormonally regulated enzymes in adipose tissue and cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase; and regulation of the mammalian pyruvate dehydrogenase complex by phosphorylation and dephosphorylation. Subsequent chapters focus on the role of histone phosphorylation in cell division; histone phosphorylation and regulation of nuclear function; and protein phosphorylation in retinal photoreceptors. The final chapter is devoted to acetylation of nuclear proteins in rat testis. This book should be a valuable resource for biochemists.
