Insulin increased dramatically the tyrosyl phosphorylation of the insulin receptor beta-subunit in mouse NIH-3T3 fibroblasts transfected with the human insulin receptor. Insulin also increased the phosphorylation, on tyrosine residues, of an endogenous 60kDa protein. This protein was identified after being eluted from a GDP-agarose support by GDP. It is suggested that the 60kDa species may be a novel guanine nucleotide binding protein which is specifically phosphorylated by the insulin receptor.
