transphosphorylation

 [trans″fos″for-ĭ-la´shun]
the exchange of phosphate groups between organic phosphates, without their going through the stage of inorganic phosphates.

trans·phos·phor·y·la·tion

(trans'fos-fōr'i-lā'shŭn),
A reaction involving the transfer of a phosphoric group from one compound to another, often with the involvement of ATP, as by the action of a phosphotransferase or kinase.

trans·phos·phor·y·la·tion

(trans'fos-fōr-i-lā'shŭn)
A reaction involving the transfer of a phosphoric group from one compound to another, often with the involvement of adenosine triphosphate.

This consummated IL-7/IL-7R signaling complex approximates the cytoplasmic tail of both [gamma]c and IL-7R[alpha], followed by transphosphorylation of JAK kinases to activate several pathways, including the JAK/STAT pathway.
Thus, smaller than 1 ratios of Pi / p-nitrophenol and greater ratios of phosphate transfer to hydrolysis showed the presence of transphosphorylation reaction.
Cr and PCr are in rapid exchange via the reversible transphosphorylation reaction catalyzed by enzyme creatine kinase (CK) (Wyss and Kaddurah-Daouk 2000).
We next examined the potential of EGFR activation through transphosphorylation by a kinase intermediate.
Alcohols such as methanol ethanol and glycerol at concentrations of 10 % showed no activating effect on the activity suggesting that acid phosphatase was not involved in the transphosphorylation reaction.
The principle involved is that LDH specifically catalyzes the oxidation of lactate to pyruvate and transphosphorylation of ADP to ATP, with subsequent formation of NADH.
Upon ligands binding to their extracellular domains, HER proteins undergo dimerization and transphosphorylation of their intracellular domains.
Sequential transphosphorylation of the BRI1/BAKI receptor kinase complex impacts early events in brassinosteroid signaling.
(31) In this mechanism Glu58 and His (His40 or His92) are implicated as a general base and a general acid, respectively, in the first stage of catalysis (i.e., transphosphorylation), and vice versa in the second stage (i.e., hydrolysis).
Compared to GST, we noticed the incorporation of radioactivity in the EGFR intracellular proteins reflecting their transphosphorylation. This incorporation is more intense in the absence of genistein reflecting a specific tyrosine kinase activity of our recombinant proteins (Figure 2(b)); since GST-TKJM[DELTA] is more expressed, genistein inhibition was not total.
Using site-directed mutagenesis, nine cysteine residues (675, 722, 748, 787, 866, 917, 961, 1094, and 1105), within JAK2 were individually and progressively mutated to serines and the effects of these mutations were tested in autophosphorylation and transphosphorylation assays.
The dimers subsequently induce transphosphorylation and activate the HER-2/neu receptor (Fig.
