The activity of cAMP-dependent protein kinases, cAMP binding and the spectrum of cAMP-binding proteins in renal papillary cytosol of intact rats and of rats kept on a water-deprived diet for 24 hours were investigated. It was found that the stimulation of protein kinases by 10(-6) M cAMP in the experimental group was significantly higher than in the control one. On DEAE-cellulose chromatography, the position of peaks of the specific cAMP binding corresponded to those of the regulatory cAMP-dependent protein kinases type I and II. Under these conditions, more than 80% of the binding activity in intact animals was localized in peak II, whereas in rats kept on a water-deprived diet over 60% of the binding activity was localized in peak I. The total binding activity of cytosol in experimental animals remained unchanged is compared to intact rats. It is suggested that in renal papilla dehydration is accompanied by the induction of synthesis of regulatory subunits of cAMP-dependent protein kinase type I.
