Selection of target substrates by protein kinases is strongly influenced by the amino acid sequence surrounding the phosphoacceptor site. Identification of the preferred peptide phosphorylation motif for a given kinase permits the production of efficient peptide substrates and greatly simplifies the mapping of phosphorylation sites in protein substrates. Here we describe a combinatorial peptide library method that allows rapid generation of phosphorylation motifs for serine/threonine kinases.
