Receptors for Insulin, Epidermal Growth Factor, Platelet-Derived Growth Factor and Insulin-like Growth Factor type 1 are tyrosine-specific protein kinases. This enzymatic activity may play a role in mediating the biological actions of these peptides. It has recently been identified a Mr 120 KDa glycoprotein in rat liver plasma membranes which can be phosphorylated by the insulin receptor and by the EGF receptor in a cell-free system and by the insulin receptor in intact cultured H-35 hepatoma cells. In the present report it is shown that the solubilized Insulin-like Growth Factor type 1 receptor can phosphorylate tyrosine residues in the same 120 KDa glycoprotein from the AS-30D rat hepatoma cells.
