A fluorescent-labeled oligopeptide (DACM-CLRRASLK-fluorescein), containing a consensus amino acid sequence (RRXSL) of cyclic AMP (cAMP) dependent protein kinase A (PKA) substrate-proteins, was designed. The fluorescent peptide was a good substrate of PKA, and the phosphorylation of its serin residue caused an intensive change in fluorescent intensity. We expect that the peptide will be useful as a fluorescent indicator for monitoring PKA activity in living cells.
