Abstract Recent studies from this laboratory have identified novel cytoskeletal proteins that are phosphorylated on tyrosine in vivo in Rous sarcoma virus-transformed chick fibroblasts (Glenney, J. R., Jr., and Zokas, L. (1989) J. Cell Biol. 108, 2401-2408). In the present report, the phosphorylation of these proteins was examined in cells expressing the nonmyristylated mutants of src that are not transformed. A good correlation was found between transformation and the tyrosine phosphorylation of a 22-kDa protein. Tyrosine phosphorylation of the 22-kDa protein was reduced more than 95\% in cells expressing the nonmyristylated mutants of src. Size fractionation revealed that the 22-kDa phosphoprotein in transformed chick fibroblasts is found in a Mr 150,000 complex. Monoclonal antibodies were used to screen various chicken tissues where the 22-kDa protein was found at high levels in muscle and lung with low levels in epithelial cells and brain. The 22-kDa protein becomes an excellent candidate for a mediator of transformation by the tyrosine kinase class of oncogenes.
