Protein kinase CK2 is a ubiquitous, highly conserved protein kinase with a tetrameric α2β2 structure. For the formation of this tetrameric complex a β-β dimer seems to be a prerequisite. Using the two-hybrid system and a series of CK2β deletion mutants, we mapped domains involved in α-β and β-β interactions. We also detected an intramolecular b interaction within the amino acid stretch 132-165.
Using CK2β as a bait in a two-hybrid library screening several new putative cellular partners have been identified, among them the S6 kinase p90rsk, the putative tumor suppressor protein Doc-1, the Fas-associated protein FAF1, the mitochondrial translational initiation factor 2 and propionyl CoA carboxylase β subunit.
