For PKA phosphorylation of a soluble protein I used a final concentration
of 0.1 mM ATP with an activity of roughly 1E6 cpm. I think if you add
only radioactive ATP the ATP will become quickly the limiting factor.
Be aware of the fact that a phosphorylation in vitro does not necessarily
mean anything in vivo.
