Oligosaccharide modification in the early secretory pathway directs the selection of a misfolded glycoprotein for degradation by the proteasome. (1/475)

The role of conformation-based quality control in the early secretory pathway is to eliminate misfolded polypeptides and unassembled multimeric protein complexes from the endoplasmic reticulum, ensuring the deployment of only functional molecules to distal sites. The intracellular fate of terminally misfolded human alpha1-antitrypsin was examined in hepatoma cells to identify the functional role of asparagine-linked oligosaccharide modification in the selection of glycoproteins for degradation by the cytosolic proteasome. Proteasomal degradation required physical interaction with the molecular chaperone calnexin. Altered sedimentation of intracellular complexes following treatment with the specific proteasome inhibitor lactacystin, and in combination with mannosidase inhibition, revealed that the removal of mannose from attached oligosaccharides abrogates the release of misfolded alpha1-antitrypsin from calnexin prior to proteasomal degradation. Intracellular turnover was arrested with kifunensine, implicating the participation of endoplasmic reticulum mannosidase I in the disposal process. Accelerated degradation occurred in a mannosidase-independent manner and was arrested by lactacystin, in response to the posttranslational inhibition of glucosidase II, demonstrating that the attenuated removal of glucose from attached oligosaccharides functions as the underlying rate-limiting step in the proteasome-mediated pathway. A model is proposed in which the removal of mannose from multiple attached oligosaccharides directs calnexin in the selection of misfolded alpha1-antitrypsin for degradation by the proteasome.  (+info)

Trimming and readdition of glucose to N-linked oligosaccharides determines calnexin association of a substrate glycoprotein in living cells. (2/475)

To analyze the role of glucose trimming and reglucosylation in the binding of substrate proteins to calnexin in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) of living cells, we made use of the thermosensitive vesicular stomatitis virus tsO45 glycoprotein (G protein). At nonpermissive temperature the G protein failed to fold completely and remained bound to calnexin. When the cells were shifted to permissive temperature, complete folding occurred accompanied by glucosidase-mediated elimination of calnexin-G protein complexes. If release from calnexin was blocked during the temperature shift by inhibiting the glucosidases, folding occurred, albeit at a reduced rate. In contrast, when unfolded by a shift from permissive to nonpermissive temperature, the G protein was reglucosylated rapidly and became capable of rebinding to calnexin. The rate at which calnexin binding occurred showed a 20-min delay that was explained by accumulation of the G protein in calnexin-free exit sites of the ER. These contained the glucosyltransferase responsible for reglucosylation of misfolded glycoproteins but had little or no calnexin. After unfolding and reglucosylation, the G proteins moved slowly from these structures back to the ER where they reassociated with the chaperone. Taken together, these results in live cells fully supported the lectin-only model of calnexin function. The ER exit sites emerged as a potentially important location for components of the quality control system.  (+info)

Surface expression and functional competence of CD3-independent TCR zeta-chains in immature thymocytes. (3/475)

In recombinase-deficient (RAG-2-/-) mice, double-negative thymocytes can be stimulated to proliferate and differentiate by anti-CD3 Abs. CD3 molecules are expressed on the surface of these cells in association with calnexin. In this study, we show that zeta-chains can be recovered as phosphorylated proteins in association with phosphorylated ZAP-70 from anti-CD3-stimulated RAG-2-/- thymocytes, even though they are not demonstrably associated with the CD3/calnexin complex. The lack of a physical association of zeta dimers with the CD3 complex in RAG-2-/- thymocytes and also in a pre-TCR-expressing cell line, as well as the efficient association of zeta dimers with ZAP-70 in the RAG-2-/- thymocytes, suggest that these zeta-chain dimers could contribute to pre-TCR signaling. This idea is supported by the finding that in RAG-2-/- zeta-deficient thymocytes, ZAP-70 and p120cbl were only weakly phosphorylated.  (+info)

Analysis of the glycosylation sites of hepatitis C virus (HCV) glycoprotein E1 and the influence of E1 glycans on the formation of the HCV glycoprotein complex. (4/475)

The hepatitis C virus (HCV) genome encodes two membrane-associated envelope glycoproteins (E1 and E2), which are released from the viral polyprotein precursor by host signal peptidase cleavages. These glycoproteins interact to form a noncovalent heterodimeric complex, which is retained in the endoplasmic reticulum. HCV glycoproteins, E1 and E2, are heavily modified by N-linked glycosylation. A recent study has revealed that upon partial deglycosylation with endoglycosidase H only four of the five potential glycosylation sites of HCV glycoprotein E1 are utilized. In this work, the unused glycosylation site on the E1 glycoprotein was identified and the influence of N-linked glycosylation on the formation of the HCV glycoprotein complex was studied by expressing a panel of E1 glycosylation mutants in HepG2 cells. Each of the five potential N-linked glycosylation sites, located at amino acid positions 196, 209, 234, 305 and 325, respectively, on the HCV polyprotein, was mutated separately as well as in combination with the other sites. Expression of the mutated E1 proteins in HepG2 cells indicated that the fifth glycosylation site is not used for the addition of N-linked oligosaccharides and the Pro immediately following the sequon (Asn-Trp-Ser) precludes core glycosylation. The effect of each mutation on the formation of noncovalent E1E2 complexes was also analysed. As determined with the use of a conformation-sensitive monoclonal antibody, mutations at positions N2 and N3 had no, or only minor, effects on the assembly of the E1E2 complex, whereas a mutation at position N1 and predominantly at position N4 dramatically reduced the efficiency of the formation of noncovalent E1E2 complexes.  (+info)

Biogenesis of alpha6beta4 integrin in a human colonic adenocarcinoma cell line involvement of calnexin. (5/475)

The heterodimer alpha6beta4 is a major integrin and the main laminin receptor in epithelia. The alpha6 integrin subunit is proteolytically cleaved, probably by furin, and glycosylated during its biosynthesis. In the present work, we have investigated the kinetics of the assembly process of alpha6beta4 heterodimers in the colonic adenocarcinoma cell line HT29-D4. We demonstrate that the association of alpha6 and beta4 precursors occurs within the ER, while the endoproteolytic cleavage of pro-alpha6 occurs later, probably in the trans-Golgi network. When pro-alpha6 was blocked within the ER by treatment with brefeldin A, its maturation processing was completely prevented without any consequence on its association with beta4 subunit. Low temperature (20 degrees C) also blocked pro-alpha6 maturation, like brefeldin A, but in addition impaired the integrin assembly. Calnexin, an ER resident protein chaperone, was found to be associated with both the alpha6 and beta4 subunit precursors. Our data suggest that calnexin might be responsible for the prolonged retention of pro-alpha6 within the ER compartment and for the defect of integrin subunit association observed at low temperature.  (+info)

Interaction of mammalian neprilysin with binding protein and calnexin in Schizosaccharomyces pombe. (6/475)

Neutral endopeptidase (neprilysin or NEP, EC 3.4.24.11) is a zinc metallo-endopeptidase expressed in many eukaryotic cell types and displaying several important physiological roles. In the brain (and central nervous system), this enzyme is involved in the molecular mechanism of pain by its action in the degradation of enkephalin molecules. In the kidney, NEP is implicated in the degradation of regulatory factors involved in the control of arterial pressure, including atrial natriuretic peptide and bradykinin. In this study we assessed the potential of the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe to overproduce rabbit NEP and secreted NEP (sNEP, a soluble derivative of this integral membrane protein). Both recombinant NEP and sNEP were produced at high levels (5 mg/l) in this system. Enzymic studies revealed that these recombinant proteins were fully active and exhibit kinetic parameters similar to those of the bona fide enzyme. Immunofluorescence microscopy and enzymic assays demonstrated that recombinant NEP is correctly targeted to the cell membrane. Furthermore, co-immunoprecipitation studies showed that folding intermediates of NEP and sNEP, produced in S. pombe, interact in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) with binding protein (BiP) and calnexin (Cnx1p). The amount of sNEP coprecipitated with both BiP and Cnx1p augmented when cells were subjected to various stresses causing the accumulation of unfolded proteins in the ER. The interactions of NEP with BiP and Cnx1p were, however, more refractive to the same stresses.  (+info)

Biosynthesis of HLA-C heavy chains in melanoma cells with multiple defects in the expression of HLA-A, -B, -C molecules. (7/475)

Recent investigations have shown that malignant transformation may down-regulate the expression of class I HLA molecules, beta2-microglobulin (beta2m) and members of the antigen-processing machinery. In the present study, we HLA-genotyped and identified at a biochemical level the three (HLA-A25, -B8, -Cw7) class I alleles expressed by the previously described [D'Urso CM et al (1992) J Clin Invest 87: 284-292] beta2m-defective human melanoma FO-1 cell line and tested their ability to interact with calnexin, calreticulin and the TAP (transporter associated with antigen processing) complex. All these alleles were found to bind calnexin, but not calreticulin or the poorly expressed TAP complex, both in parental and beta2m-transfected FO-1 cells, demonstrating a complex defect of class I expression in FO-1 cells. In these conditions, Cw7 heavy chains interacted with calnexin more strongly than A25 and B8, and preferentially accumulated in the endoplasmic reticulum, in both a calnexin-associated and a calnexin-free form. In addition, they could be transported to the cell surface at low levels even in the absence of beta2m, without undergoing terminal glycosylation. These results establish a parallel between HLA-C and the murine Db and Ld molecules which have been found to be surface expressed and functional in beta2m-defective cells. They also demonstrate distinctive features of HLA-C molecules. We propose that the accumulation of several assembly intermediates of HLA-C might favour the binding of peptide antigens not readily bound by HLA-A and -B molecules in neoplastic cells with suboptimal class I expression.  (+info)

Molecular chaperones stimulate the functional expression of the cocaine-sensitive serotonin transporter. (8/475)

The serotonin transporter (SERT) is an N-glycosylated integral membrane protein that is predicted to contain 12 transmembrane regions. SERT is the major binding site in the brain for antidepressant drugs, and it also binds amphetamines and cocaine. The ability of various molecular chaperones to interact with a tagged version of SERT (Myc-SERT) was investigated using the baculovirus expression system. Overexpression of Myc-SERT using the baculovirus system led to substantial quantities of inactive transporter, together with small amounts of fully active and, therefore, correctly folded molecules. The high levels of inactive Myc-SERT probably arose because folding was rate-limiting due, perhaps, to insufficient molecular chaperones. Therefore, Myc-SERT was co-expressed with the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) molecular chaperones calnexin, calreticulin and immunoglobulin heavy chain binding protein (BiP), and the foldase, ERp57. The expression of functional Myc-SERT, as determined by an inhibitor binding assay, was enhanced nearly 3-fold by co-expressing calnexin, and to a lesser degree on co-expression of calreticulin and BiP. Co-expression of ERp57 did not increase the functional expression of Myc-SERT. A physical interaction between Myc-SERT-calnexin and Myc-SERT-calreticulin was demonstrated by co-immunoprecipitation. These associations were inhibited in vivo by deoxynojirimycin, an inhibitor of N-glycan precusor trimming that is known to prevent the calnexin/calreticulin-N-glycan interaction. Functional expression of the unglycosylated SERT mutant, SERT-QQ, was also increased on co-expression of calnexin, suggesting that the interaction between calnexin and SERT is not entirely dictated by the N-glycan. SERT is the first member of the neurotransmitter transporter family whose folding has been shown to be assisted by the molecular chaperones calnexin, calreticulin, and BiP.  (+info)

HIV patients are at a greater risk of developing atherosclerosis than non-infected individuals, partly due to the impairment of the ATP-Binding Cassette A1 (ABCA1) cholesterol transporter by the HIV-1 viral protein Nef leading to accumulation of cholesterol inside the cell. While studying the possible mechanism of Nef-mediated disruption of cholesterol efflux, we found that ABCA1 interacts with Nef, but a direct interaction with Nef is dispensable for the inactivation of ABCA1. Using mass spectroscopy we identified calnexin as a protein that associates with both ABCA1 and Nef and provided evidence to show that in the presence of Nef, ABCA1-calnexin interaction is disrupted leading to ABCA1 retention in the ER, subsequent degradation and impairment of cholesterol efflux. However, the molecular interactions taking place remained unknown as Nef is not known to enter the ER lumen and the domain of calnexin involved in binding to substrate proteins is located within the ER lumen. We hypothesized that ...

BACE457 is the splice variant of β-secretase found in the pancreas. Compared with the brain isoform, BACE501, BACE457 lacks 44 residues in the lumenal domain. Although maturation of BACE501 transiently expressed in HEK293 cells was efficient (this study; Sinha et al., 1999; Vassar et al., 1999; Yan et al., 1999), we found that most of the BACE457 expressed under similar conditions was retained in the ER and became a substrate for ERAD.. The fate of BACE457 and of the soluble mutant BACE457Δ was characterized by a lag phase during which the proteins were extensively oxidized and remained protected from premature degradation during nonproductive attempts at folding in association with the molecular chaperone calnexin. Upon release from calnexin, misfolded BACE457 (and to a lesser extent BACE457Δ) transiently entered into disulfide-bonded complexes before degradation from the ER. Because the lumenal portion of the two proteins is identical, it is likely that attachment at the membrane, or the ...
N-Glycans are modified as part of a quality control mechanism during glycoprotein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Glucosidase II (GII) plays a critical role by generating monoglucosylated glycans that are recognized by lectin chaperones, calnexin and calreticulin. To understand how the hydrolytic activity of GIIα is enhanced by the mannose 6-phosphate receptor (MPR) homology domain (MRH domain) of its β subunit, we now report a 1.6 Å resolution crystal structure of the MRH domain of GIIβ bound to mannose. A comparison of ligand-bound and unbound structures reveals no major difference in their overall fold, but rather a repositioning of side chains throughout the binding pocket, including Y372. Mutation of Y372 inhibits GII activity, demonstrating an important role for Y372 in regulating GII activity. Comparison of the MRH domains of GIIβ, MPRs, and the ER lectin OS-9 identified conserved residues that are critical for the structural integrity and architecture of the carbohydrate ...

Hosted by the Department of BiochemistryMandatory for all Biochemistry Graduate Students David Thomas, PhD FRSC Department of Biochemistry McGill UniversityAbstract Cells have homeostatic mechanisms that monitor the integrity organelles and proteins and repair or degrade faulty components, termed proteostasis. One example that we have intensively studied is the ER quality system, the Calnexin Cycle. Protein trafficking diseases such as cystic fibrosis arise from recognition of mutant proteins by the quality control mechanism and the retention of the mutant but otherwise function protein in the ER. We have identified correctors of the trafficking of ER retained mutant proteins and identified two types of mechanism, pharmacological chaperones that bind the mutant molecules and proteostasis modulators that act on the quality control mechanisms.

Quality control of the endoplasmic reticulum plays a critical role in protein folding, modification and modification of a secretory pathway. As endoplasmic reticulum chaperones, calreticulin and calnexin have similar substrate specificity and share several common features. Yet, surprisingly, mice bearing a disruption in the calreticulin gene die from a lesion in cardiac development and develop significant metabolic problems whereas calnexin-deficient mice are born alive with, yet not understood, neurological problems. Studies with calreticulin and calnexin gene knockout mice and calreticulin- and calnexindeficient cell lines indicate that calnexin is unable to compensate for the loss of calreticulin and conversely, calreticulin cannot compensate for the loss of calnexin. Calreticulin or calnexin deficiency or reduction in the level of ERp57 protein (ERp57 heterozygote mice) leads to development of metabolic disorders as documented by sever changes serum lipids and carbohydrates composition in ...

Endoplasmic-reticulum-associated protein degradation (ERAD) designates a cellular pathway which targets misfolded proteins of the endoplasmic reticulum for ubiquitination and subsequent degradation by a protein-degrading complex, called the proteasome. The process of ERAD can be divided into three steps: The recognition of misfolded or mutated proteins depends on the detection of substructures within proteins such as exposed hydrophobic regions, unpaired cysteine residues and immature glycans. In mammalian cells for example, there exists a mechanism called glycan processing. In this mechanism, the lectin-type chaperones calnexin/calreticulin (CNX/CRT) provide immature glycoproteins the opportunity to reach their native conformation. They can do this by way of reglucosylating these glycoproteins by an enzyme called UDP-glucose-glycoprotein glucosyltransferase. Terminally misfolded proteins, however, must be extracted from CNX/CRT. This is carried out by members of the EDEM (ER ...

How do chaperones operate in cells? For some major chaperones it is clear what they do, though mostly not how they do it. Hsp60, 70 and 100 families carry out folding, unfolding or disaggregation of proteins. Regarding mechanisms of action, we have the clearest picture of the ATP-driven mechanism of the bacterial Hsp60s, and structures of full-length Hsp70 and 90 family members are beginning to give insights into their allosteric mechanisms. Recent advances are giving an improved understanding of the nature of chaperone interactions with their non-native substrate proteins. There have also been significant advances in understanding the engagement of chaperones in preventing the formation of toxic aggregates in degenerative disease and the relationship of protein quality control to complex biological processes such as ageing.. ...

PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Calreticulin (CALR), a lectin-like ER chaperone, was initially known only for its housekeeping function, but today it is recognized for many versatile roles in different compartments of a cell. Apart from canonical roles in protein folding and calcium homeostasis, it performs a variety of noncanonical roles, mostly in CNS development. In the past, studies have linked Calreticulin with various other biological components which are detrimental in deciding the fate of neurons. Many neurological disorders that differ in their etiology are commonly associated with aberrant levels of ...

Protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is error prone, and ER quality control (ERQC) processes ensure that only correctly folded proteins are exported from the ER. Glycoproteins can be retained in the ER by ERQC, and this retention contributes to multiple human diseases, termed ER storage diseases. UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGGT1) acts as a central component of glycoprotein ERQC, monoglucosylating deglucosylated N-glycans of incompletely folded glycoproteins and promoting subsequent reassociation with the lectin-like chaperones calreticulin and calnexin. The extent to which UGGT1 influences glycoprotein folding, however, has only been investigated for a few selected substrates. Using mouse embryonic fibroblasts lacking UGGT1 or those with UGGT1 complementation, we investigated the effect of monoglucosylation on the soluble/insoluble distribution of two misfolded alpha 1-antitrypsin (AAT) variants responsible for AAT deficiency disease: null Hong Kong (NHK) and Z ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Assembly and retention of CD1b heavy chains in the endoplasmic reticulum. AU - Sugita, Masahiko. AU - Porcelli, Steven A.. AU - Brenner, Michael B.. PY - 1997/12/1. Y1 - 1997/12/1. N2 - The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the site for assembly of MHC class I molecules. Newly synthesized class I heavy chains bind calnexin, an ER-resident molecular chaperone, and dissociate from calnexin following association with β2-microglobulin (β2m). The class I heavy chain:β2m complex then is stabilized by binding endogenous peptides transported to the ER through the TAP molecules. Thus, both β2m and TAP are required for class I Ag presentation. Human CD1b is a β2m-associated, non-MHC-encoded glycoprotein that functions in presentation of lipid Ags to T cells. Despite its structural similarities with class I, CD1b-mediated Ag presentation is TAP independent, and CD1b traffics to endocytic compartments for sampling exogenous Ags. Given these distinctive features of CD1b, we set out to ...

Viral interleukin-6 (vIL-6) encoded by human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) is believed to contribute via mitogenic, survival, and angiogenic activities to HHV-8-associated Kaposis sarcoma, primary effusion lymphoma (PEL), and multicentric Castlemans disease through autocrine or paracrine mechanisms during latency or productive replication. There is direct evidence that vIL-6 promotes latently infected PEL cell viability and proliferation and also viral productive replication in PEL and endothelial cells. These activities are mediated largely through endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-localized vIL-6, which can induce signal transduction via the gp130 signaling receptor, activating mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and signal transducer and activator of transcription (STAT) signaling, and interactions of vIL-6 with the ER membrane protein vitamin K epoxide reductase complex subunit 1 variant 2 (VKORC1v2). The latter functional axis involves suppression of pro-apoptotic lysosomal protein cathepsin D by ...
The biogenesis of nascent proteins translocated into the calcium‐rich, oxidizing milieu of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) lumen is assisted by a group of resident ER proteins that include molecular chaperones and folding enzymes. These specialized ER proteins are constitutively expressed in all cells, where they play a role in monitoring and assisting the maturation of normal proteins (Gething and Sambrook, 1992; Hendrick and Hartl, 1993) and are essential for proper steady‐state operations of the eukaryotic secretory pathway. Expression of mutant secretory pathway proteins or exposure of cells to agents that adversely affect ER protein folding and maturation all result in the accumulation of unfolded proteins in the ER, thereby activating an inter‐organelle signaling pathway linking the ER and nucleus. This response, termed the unfolded protein response (UPR), includes the coordinate transcriptional up‐regulation of ER chaperones and folding enzymes (Lee, 1992).. In yeast, an ER ...
Abstract Introduction: Calreticulin is a multi-functioning protein located in the endoplasmic reticulum. Several functions have been attributed to calreticulin including lectin-like chaperoning, regulation of gene expression, cell adhesion, auto-immunity and calcium homeostasis. As an endoplasmic reticulum chaperone calreticulin regulates the maturation and folding of several trans-membrane proteins. We hypothesized that as an endoplasmic reticular protein it regulates the expression folding and maturation of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). To date no information is available about the role of calreticulin in EGFR expression and folding. Methods: Wild type calreticulin deficient (crt -/-) and mouse lung cancer cells isolated from transgenic mice over expressing calreticulin was used to examine the expression, localization and function of EGFR. Western blot analysis was used to determine the protein expression. Immunocytochemical staining of cells was utilized to determine localization of EGFR
EM (fig. S1, C to H) and biochemical fractionation (fig. S2) experiments show the localization of StAR and GRP78 in the ER, MAM, and mitochondria. Because GRP78 is a highly abundant chaperone at the ER that interacts with StAR, it is likely facilitating its folding and subsequent activity (17). We next knocked down the expression of GRP78 by small interfering RNA (siRNA) in COS-1 cells (Fig. 1C) or adenosine 3′,5′-monophosphate (cAMP)-stimulated MA-10 cells (Fig. 1D) and identified changes in StAR expression by Western blotting. In the absence of GRP78, the expression of StAR was greatly reduced, but the negative control siRNA had no effect, suggesting that GRP78 is responsible for StAR expression. As expected, the absence of GRP78 did not affect the expression of mitochondrial VDAC2 or the ER proteins PACS2 and calnexin (Caln) (Fig. 1, C and D). As shown in Fig. 1E, pregnenolone synthesis in MA-10 cells decreased from 25 ng/ml in control cells to 2 ng/ml in the absence of GRP78. The ...
HLA-B belongs to the HLA class I heavy chain paralogues. This class I molecule is a heterodimer consisting of a heavy chain and a light chain (beta-2 microglobulin). The heavy chain is anchored in the membrane. Class I molecules play a central role in the immune system by presenting peptides derived from the endoplasmic reticulum lumen. They are expressed in nearly all cells. The heavy chain is approximately 45 kDa and its gene contains 8 exons. Exon 1 encodes the leader peptide, exon 2 and 3 encode the alpha1 and alpha2 domains, which both bind the peptide, exon 4 encodes the alpha3 domain, exon 5 encodes the transmembrane region and exons 6 and 7 encode the cytoplasmic tail. Polymorphisms within exon 2 and exon 3 are responsible for the peptide binding specificity of each class one molecule. Typing for these polymorphisms is routinely done for bone marrow and kidney transplantation. Hundreds of HLA-B alleles have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...

Any of a group of proteins in living cells that assist newly synthesized or denatured proteins to fold into their functional three-dimensional structures. The chaperones bind to the protein and prevent improper interactions within the polypeptide chain, so that it assumes the correct folded orientation. This process may require energy in the form of ATP. Other functions include assisting the translocation of proteins across the membranes of cell organelles and binding denatured proteins under stress conditions or in degenerative disease. There are several unrelated families of chaperones, including five classes of heat-shock proteins - HSP25 (small heat-shock proteins), HSP60, HSP70, HSP90, and HSP100 - chaperonins, calnexin, and calreticulin. ...
The ER-resident MHC class I PLC forms a key target for viral immune evasion. When analyzing the subcellular distribution of BNLF2a, we observed strict membrane association and colocalization with TAP and the ER markers calnexin and PDI (Figs. 1⇑, 2⇑, 6⇑D, and 7B), reminiscent of two other TAP inhibitors, HCMV US6 (35, 36) and BHV-1 UL49.5 (33). The latter two represent integral type I membrane proteins with cleavable signal sequences at their N termini for cotranslational membrane insertion, as well as transmembrane domains toward their C termini. In contrast, BNLF2a lacks an obvious N-terminal signal sequence (Fig. 1⇑A). Still, the EBV-encoded TAP inhibitor is membrane associated and, even in the absence of TAP, localizes to the ER (Fig. 6⇑D). In this respect, BNLF2a differs from HSV ICP47, which also lacks a signal sequence but has been detected primarily as a cytosolic protein with small amounts associating with membranes (26, 31). ICP47 is unstructured in aqueous solutions but ...
In this study, we have identified two unique aspects of STIM1 function that are separate but overlapping. We discovered that ERp57, an ER‐resident oxidoreductase, interacts with the ER luminal domain of STIM1 and affects SOC. Although ERp57−/− cells show reduced ER Ca2+ stores, expression of ERp57 in ERp57−/− cells inhibits SOC without restoring Ca2+ stores, supporting a role for ERp57 on SOC by interaction with STIM1 rather than its effects on the size of ER Ca2+ stores. ERp57/STIM1 interaction involves two conserved cysteines (C49 and C56), forming a disulphide bridge upstream from the EF‐hand domain. The mutation of these residues to eliminate the disulphide bond rendered STIM1 incapable of proper punctae translocation. As the conserved C49 and C56 are located in close proximity to the EF‐hand Ca2+ sensor in STIM1, these results indicated that the conformation of the disulphide‐containing region of STIM1 might affect that of the EF hand (and vice versa). Indeed, extensive in ...

Obesity-mediated inflammation is a major cause of insulin resistance, and macrophages play an important role in this process. The 78-kDa glucose-regulated protein (GRP78) is a major endoplasmic reticulum chaperone that modulates unfolded protein response (UPR), and mice with GRP78 heterozygosity were resistant to diet-induced obesity. Here, we show that mice with macrophage-selective ablation of GRP78 (Lyz- GRP78(-/-)) are protected from skeletal muscle insulin resistance without changes in obesity compared with wild-type mice after 9 wk of high-fat diet. GRP78-deficient macrophages demonstrated adapted UPR with up-regulation of activating transcription factor (ATF)-4 and M2-polarization markers. Diet-induced adipose tissue inflammation was reduced, and bone marrow-derived macrophages from Lyz- GRP78(-/-) mice demonstrated a selective increase in IL-6 expression. Serum IL-13 levels were elevated by | 4-fold in Lyz- GRP78(-/-) mice, and IL-6 stimulated the myocyte expression of IL-13 and IL-13 receptor.

Defective proteins are cleared from the ER through a process termed ER‐associated degradation, or ERAD. A crucial step in ERAD is the selection and delivery of soluble misfolded proteins in the ER lumen to the membrane‐associated translocation machinery (Fig 2). EDEM1 has been proposed to have a role in this process by recognizing mannose trimming of N‐linked glycans attached to ERAD substrates. D. Hebert (Amherst, MA, USA) showed that EDEM1 recognizes protein‐folding defects directly, independent of the glycosylation status of a protein (Cormier et al, 2009). Nevertheless, EDEM1 seems to bind to the downstream glycosylated membrane‐associated components of the ERAD machinery through its mannosidase‐like domain. These results indicate that EDEM1 functions as a quality control receptor, and that the mannose trimming of glycans attached to ERAD components could be used to mediate ERAD complex formation.. The quality control or ERAD selection process ensures that defective proteins are ...
Cytomegaloviruses (CMVs) are expert evaders of nearly every aspect of our immune system. One of these strategies is the downregulation of surface MHC I molecules (major histocompatibility molecules class I). As MHC I molecules present peptides (small fragments) of all proteins generated within the cells to cytotoxic T cells, downregulation of MHC I molecules is an effective way of hiding a viral presence inside the cell from T cells.. Natural killer (NK) cells, lymphocytes that belong to innate immune systems, possess receptors called Ly49 in mice or KIR in humans. These receptors recognize MHC I molecules on the cell surface and inhibit the NK cell, preventing it from uncontrolled killing of cells. The NK cell is thus said to recognize "self" molecules. When MHC I molecules are downregulated upon virus infection, the NK cell is no longer inhibited by KIR or Ly49 receptors. In particular, when there are other activating signals or inflammation, the NK cell will kill the infected cell with ...

Vesicle-associated membrane proteinCassociated protein (VAP) is definitely an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-resident integral membrane protein that controls a nonvesicular mode of ceramide and cholesterol transfer from the ER to the Golgi complex by interacting with ceramide transfer protein and oxysterol-binding protein (OSBP), respectively. As demonstrated in Number 6A, endogenous VAP-A and VAP-B were coprecipitated with FLAG-Sac1 (lane 7). FLAG-Sac1 showed a higher affinity for VAP-A than VAP-B, which is definitely consistent with more proclaimed colocalization of Sac1 with VAP-A than VAP-B at the juxtanuclear storage compartments (Number 4A), although 25-Oh yea treatment did not significantly impact their relationships (Number 6A, lane 8). Additional Emergency room integral membrane proteins, calnexin and valosin-containing protein-interacting membrane protein (VIMP), were not coprecipitated with FLAG-Sac1 (Number 6A, lanes 7 and 8), suggesting that the interaction of VAPs with FLAG-Sac1 is ...
Being a major factory for protein synthesis, assembly, and export, the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) has a precise and robust ER quality control (ERQC) system monitoring its product line. However, when organisms are subjected to environmental stress, whether biotic or abiotic, the levels of misfolded proteins may overwhelm the ERQC system, tilting the balance between the capacity of and demand for ER quality control and resulting in a scenario termed ER stress. Intense or prolonged ER stress may cause damage to the ER as well as to other organelles, or even lead to cell death in extreme cases. To avoid such serious consequences, cells activate self-rescue programs to restore protein homeostasis in the ER, either through the enhancement of protein-folding and degradation competence or by alleviating the demands for such reactions. These are collectively called the unfolded protein response (UPR). Long investigated in mammalian cells and yeasts, the UPR is also of great interest to plant scientists. Among

In this study, we determined the subcellular accumulation of HTLV-1 p12I to further define the possible function for this protein in viral infection. We demonstrate that p12I is retained as a membrane-associated protein and is expressed predominantly in the ER and cis-Golgi apparatus. Two regions of the protein containing predicted transmembrane domains are independently responsible for this pattern of localization. Importantly, we are the first to identify the interaction of p12I with both calreticulin and calnexin in the ER, suggesting a possible function of the viral protein in calcium-mediated cell signaling leading to host cell activation. These findings are consistent with our previous studies that demonstrated a requirement for HTLV-1 p12I in viral infectivity both in a rabbit model of infection (12), in primary lymphocytes in vitro (1), and in calcium-dependent nuclear factor of activated T cells-mediated transcription (B. Albrecht et al., unpublished data).. HTLV-1 p12I is highly ...
HLA class I histocompatibility antigen, alpha chain E (HLA-E) also known as MHC class I antigen E is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HLA-E gene. The human HLA-E is a non-classical MHC class I molecule that is characterized by a limited polymorphism and a lower cell surface expression than its classical paralogues. The functional homolog in mice is called Qa-1b, officially known as H2-T23. Like other MHC class I molecules, HLA-E is a heterodimer consisting of an α heavy chain and a light chain (β-2 microglobulin). The heavy chain is approximately 45 kDa and anchored in the membrane. The HLA-E gene contains 8 exons. Exon one encodes the signal peptide, exons 2 and 3 encode the α1 and α2 domains, which both bind the peptide, exon 4 encodes the α3 domain, exon 5 encodes the transmembrane domain, and exons 6 and 7 encode the cytoplasmic tail. HLA-E has a very specialized role in cell recognition by natural killer cells (NK cells). HLA-E binds a restricted subset of peptides derived ...
Carboxypeptidase O (CPO), a member of the M14 family of proteolytic enzymes, preferentially cleaves C-terminal acidic amino acids, with weak affinity towards hydrophobic amino acids. We investigated the subcellular localization of CPO, and after immunofluorescent analysis of stably-transfected MDCK cells, we found that CPO co-localized with calnexin, an ER marker. To determine what CPO does in the ER, MDCK cells were transfected with plasmids expressing Gaussia Luciferase (GLuc) containing a C-terminal ER retention signal (KDEL). Previous experiments suggested that CPO cleaves the KDEL sequence of GLuc, causing its secretion. In ongoing experiments, plasmids expressing GLuc tagged with modified KDEL sequences (KDELD, KDELE, and KDELEL) will be transfected, and the intracellular activity of CPO against these substrates will be assessed.

Induction of apoptosis by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as celecoxib, is involved in their antitumor activity. An endoplasmic reticulum chaperone, 150-kDa oxygen-regulated protein (ORP150) is essential for the maintenance of cellular viability under hypoxia and is reported to be overexpressed in clinically isolated tumors. We here found that ORP150 was up-regulated by celecoxib in human gastric carcinoma cells. In conjunction with the suppression of tumor growth, orally administered celecoxib up-regulated ORP150 in xenograft tumors. Both the ATF4 and ATF6 pathways were activated by celecoxib, and suppression of ATF4 and ATF6 mRNA expression by small interfering RNA (siRNA) inhibited the celecoxib-dependent up-regulation of ORP150. Celecoxib administration led to an increase in the intracellular concentration of Ca2+, whereas 1,2-bis(2-aminophenoxy)ethane-N,N,N′,N′-tetraacetic acid-acetoxymethyl ester, an intracellular Ca2+ chelator, inhibited the up-regulation of ORP150 and the ...
Calreticulin: A multifunctional protein that is found primarily within membrane-bound organelles. In the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM it binds to specific N-linked oligosaccharides found on newly-synthesized proteins and functions as a MOLECULAR CHAPERONE that may play a role in PROTEIN FOLDING or retention and degradation of misfolded proteins. In addition calreticulin is a major storage form for CALCIUM and functions as a calcium-signaling molecule that can regulate intracellular calcium HOMEOSTASIS.
