Abstract SNAP-25 is a key protein required for the fusion of synaptic vesicles with the plasma membrane during exocytosis. This study establishes that SNAP-25 is differentially phosphorylated by protein kinase C and protein kinase A in neuroendocrine PC12 cells. Using phosphopeptide mapping and site-directed mutagenesis we identified both Thr138 and Ser187 as the targets of SNAP-25 phosphorylation by protein kinase C and Thr138 as the exclusive site of SNAP-25 phosphorylation by protein kinase A in vivo. Finally, despite published data to the contrary, we demonstrate that stimulation of regulated exocytosis under physiological conditions is independent of a measurable increase in SNAP-25 phosphorylation in PC12 cells.
