Using chemical genetics and ATP analogues to dissect protein kinase function.
Protein kinases catalyze the transfer of the gamma-phosphate of ATP to a protein substrate and thereby profoundly alter the properties of the phosphorylated protein. The identification of the substrates of protein kinases has proven to be a very difficult task because of the multitude of structurally related protein kinases present in cells, their apparent redundancy of function, and the lack of absolute specificity of small-molecule inhibitors. Here, we review approaches that utilize chemica...Expand abstract
