Signals from the Ras, Rac, and Rho GTPases converge on the Pak protein kinase in Rat-1 fibroblasts. (1/1023)

Ras plays a key role in regulating cellular proliferation, differentiation, and transformation. Raf is the major effector of Ras in the Ras > Raf > Mek > extracellular signal-activated kinase (ERK) cascade. A second effector is phosphoinositide 3-OH kinase (PI 3-kinase), which, in turn, activates the small G protein Rac. Rac also has multiple effectors, one of which is the serine threonine kinase Pak (p65(Pak)). Here we show that Ras, but not Raf, activates Pak1 in cotransfection assays of Rat-1 cells but not NIH 3T3 cells. We tested agents that activate or block specific components downstream of Ras and demonstrate a Ras > PI 3-kinase > Rac/Cdc42 > Pak signal. Although these studies suggest that the signal from Ras through PI 3-kinase is sufficient to activate Pak, additional studies suggested that other effectors contribute to Pak activation. RasV12S35 and RasV12G37, two effector mutant proteins which fail to activate PI 3-kinase, did not activate Pak when tested alone but activated Pak when they were cotransfected. Similarly, RacV12H40, an effector mutant that does not bind Pak, and Rho both cooperated with Raf to activate Pak. A dominant negative Rho mutant also inhibited Ras activation of Pak. All combinations of Rac/Raf and Ras/Raf and Rho/Raf effector mutants that transform cells cooperatively stimulated ERK. Cooperation was Pak dependent, since all combinations were inhibited by kinase-deficient Pak mutants in both transformation assays and ERK activation assays. These data suggest that other Ras effectors can collaborate with PI 3-kinase and with each other to activate Pak. Furthermore, the strong correlation between Pak activation and cooperative transformation suggests that Pak activation is necessary, although not sufficient, for cooperative transformation of Rat-1 fibroblasts by Ras, Rac, and Rho.  (+info)

alphaPix stimulates p21-activated kinase activity through exchange factor-dependent and -independent mechanisms. (2/1023)

Activation of p21-activated kinases (Paks) is achieved through binding of the GTPases Rac or Cdc42 to a conserved domain in the N-terminal regulatory region of Pak. Additional signaling components are also likely to be important in regulating Pak activation. Recently, a family of Pak-interacting guanine nucleotide exchange factors (Pix) have been identified and which are good candidates for regulating Pak activity. Using an active, truncated form of alphaPix (amino acids 155-545), we observe stimulation of Pak1 kinase activity when alphaPix155-545 is co-expressed with Cdc42 and wild-type Pak1 in COS-1 cells. This activation does not occur when we co-express a Pak1 mutant unable to bind alphaPix. The activation of wild-type Pak1 by alphaPix155-545 also requires that alphaPix155-545 retain functional exchange factor activity. However, the Pak1(H83,86L) mutant that does not bind Rac or Cdc42 is activated in the absence of GTPase by alphaPix155-545 and by a mutant of alphaPix155-545 that no longer has exchange factor activity. Pak1 activity stimulated in vitro using GTPgammaS-loaded Cdc42 was also enhanced by recombinant alphaPix155-545 in a binding-dependent manner. These data suggest that Pak activity can be modulated by physical interaction with alphaPix and that this specific effect involves both exchange factor-dependent and -independent mechanisms.  (+info)

Multisite autophosphorylation of p21-activated protein kinase gamma-PAK as a function of activation. (3/1023)

p21-activated protein kinase (PAK) is a family of serine/threonine kinases whose activity is stimulated by binding to small G-proteins such as Cdc42 and subsequent autophosphorylation. Focusing on the ubiquitous gamma-isoform of PAK in this study, baculovirus-infected insect cells were used to obtain recombinant gamma-PAK, while native gamma-PAK was isolated from rabbit reticulocytes. Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of gamma-PAK followed by immunoblot analysis revealed a similar profile for native and recombinant gamma-PAK, both consisting of multiple protein spots. Following Cdc42-stimulated autophosphorylation, the two-dimensional profiles of native and recombinant gamma-PAK were characterized by a similar acidic shift, suggesting a common response to Cdc42. To understand the effect of differential phosphorylation on its activation status, gamma-PAK autophosphorylation was conducted in the presence or absence of activators such as Cdc42 and histone II-AS, followed by tryptic digestion and comparative two-dimensional phosphopeptide mapping. The major phosphopeptides were subjected to a combination of manual and automated amino acid sequencing. Overall, eight autophosphorylation sites were identified in Cdc42-activated gamma-PAK, six of which are in common with those previously reported in alpha-PAK, while Ser-19 and Ser-165 appear to be uniquely phosphorylated in the gamma-form. Further, the phosphorylation of Ser-141, Ser-165, and Thr-402 was found to correlate with gamma-PAK activation.  (+info)

Inhibition of myosin light chain kinase by p21-activated kinase. (4/1023)

p21-activated kinases (PAKs) are implicated in the cytoskeletal changes induced by the Rho family of guanosine triphosphatases. Cytoskeletal dynamics are primarily modulated by interactions of actin and myosin II that are regulated by myosin light chain kinase (MLCK)-mediated phosphorylation of the regulatory myosin light chain (MLC). p21-activated kinase 1 (PAK1) phosphorylates MLCK, resulting in decreased MLCK activity. MLCK activity and MLC phosphorylation were decreased, and cell spreading was inhibited in baby hamster kidney-21 and HeLa cells expressing constitutively active PAK1. These data indicate that MLCK is a target for PAKs and that PAKs may regulate cytoskeletal dynamics by decreasing MLCK activity and MLC phosphorylation.  (+info)

Caspase-mediated activation of PAK2 during apoptosis: proteolytic kinase activation as a general mechanism of apoptotic signal transduction? (5/1023)

p21-activated kinase 2 (PAK2) is proteolytically cleaved during apoptosis through the action of DEVD-sensitive caspase(s). This cleavage event causes PAK2 activation, and PAK2 activity is implicated in regulation of the biochemistry and morphology of the apoptotic cell. PAK2 is just one example of a number of identified caspase targets that are protein kinases involved in regulating various aspects of cell function. We hypothesize that this may reflect their important role in regulating the controlled and orderly demise of the dying cell.  (+info)

Requirement of p21-activated kinase (PAK) for Salmonella typhimurium-induced nuclear responses. (6/1023)

Salmonella typhimurium has sustained a long-standing association with its host and therefore has evolved sophisticated strategies to multiply and survive within this environment. Central to Salmonella pathogenesis is the function of a dedicated type III secretion system that delivers bacterial effector proteins into the host cell cytoplasm. These effectors stimulate nuclear responses and actin cytoskeleton reorganization leading to the production of proinflammatory cytokines and bacterial internalization. The stimulation of these responses requires the function of Cdc42, a member of the Rho family of small molecular weight GTPases, and SopE, a bacterial effector protein that stimulates guanine nucleotide exchange on Rho GTPases. However, nothing is known about the role of Cdc42 effector proteins in S. typhimurium-induced responses. We showed here that S. typhimurium infection of cultured epithelial cells results in the activation of p21-activated kinase (PAK), a serine/threonine kinase that is an effector of Cdc42-dependent responses. Transient expression of a kinase-defective PAK blocked both S. typhimurium- and SopE-induced c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase (JNK) activation but did not interfere with bacteria-induced actin cytoskeleton rearrangements. Similarly, expression of SH3-binding mutants of PAK did not block actin-mediated S. typhimurium entry into cultured cells. However, expression of an effector loop mutant of Cdc42Hs (Cdc42HsC40) unable to bind PAK and other CRIB (for Cdc42/Rac interacting binding)-containing target proteins resulted in abrogation of both S. typhimurium-induced nuclear and cytoskeletal responses. These results show that PAK kinase activity is required for bacteria-induced nuclear responses but it is not required for cytoskeletal rearrangements, indicating that S. typhimurium stimulates cellular responses through different Cdc42 downstream effector activities. In addition, these results demonstrate that the effector loop of Cdc42 implicated in the binding of PAK and other CRIB-containing target proteins is required for both responses.  (+info)

Induction of Fas ligand expression by HIV involves the interaction of Nef with the T cell receptor zeta chain. (7/1023)

During HIV/SIV infection, there is widespread programmed cell death in infected and, perhaps more importantly, uninfected cells. Much of this apoptosis is mediated by Fas-Fas ligand (FasL) interactions. Previously we demonstrated in macaques that induction of FasL expression and apoptotic cell death of both CD4(+) and CD8(+) T cells by SIV is dependent on a functional nef gene. However, the molecular mechanism whereby HIV-1 induces the expression of FasL remained poorly understood. Here we report a direct association of HIV-1 Nef with the zeta chain of the T cell receptor (TCR) complex and the requirement of both proteins for HIV-mediated upregulation of FasL. Expression of FasL through Nef depended upon the integrity of the immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motifs (ITAMs) of the TCR zeta chain. Conformation for the importance of zeta for Nef-mediated signaling in T cells came from an independent finding. A single ITAM motif of zeta but not CD3epsilon was both required and sufficient to promote activation and binding of the Nef-associated kinase (NAK/p62). Our data imply that Nef can form a signaling complex with the TCR, which bypasses the requirement of antigen to initiate T cell activation and subsequently upregulation of FasL expression. Thus, our study may provide critical insights into the molecular mechanism whereby the HIV-1 accessory protein Nef contributes to the pathogenesis of HIV.  (+info)

Tiam1 is involved in the regulation of bufalin-induced apoptosis in human leukemia cells. (8/1023)

Bufalin, a component of the Chinese medicine chan'su, induces apoptosis in various lines of human tumor cells, such as leukemia HL60 and U937 cells, by altering the expression of apoptosis-related genes, for example, bcl-2 and c-myc. In this study, we characterized a gene that is involved in bufalin-induced apoptosis by the differential display (DD) technique. The partial nucleotide sequence of one of the differentially expressed clones obtained after treatment with bufalin was identical to that of the human gene for Tiam1. When U937 cells were treated with 10(-7) M bufalin, expression of both Tiam1 mRNA and the protein was induced 1 h after the start of the treatment. The increase of Tiam1 mRNA was transient but the level of Tiam1 protein continued to increase at least for 6 h. In addition, the activities of Rac1 and p21-activated kinase (PAK) were also stimulated by bufalin treatment. To evaluate the role of Tiam1 in the apoptotic process, we examined the effects of the expression of sense and antisense RNA for Tiam1 in U937 cells. Apoptosis was strongly induced by bufalin in cells that expressed sense RNA for Tiam1 as compared to apoptosis in control cells treated with bufalin only. Cells expressing antisense RNA for Tiaml were significantly more resistant than the control bufalin-treated cells to induction of DNA fragmentation in response to bufalin. Moreover, sense transformants had elevated activities of PAK and c-Jun NH2-terminal kinase (JNK). These results suggest that Tiaml might play a critical role in bufalin-induced apoptosis through the activation of Rac1, PAK, and JNK pathway.  (+info)

PAK proteins are involved in the regulation of cellular processes such as gene transcription, cell morphology, motility and apoptosis (Bagrodia and Cerione, 1999; Daniels and Bokoch, 1999; Jaffer and Chernoff, 2002). Our results illustrate that different PAK proteins fulfil distinct functions in the same cell. In the developing photoreceptor cells, D-PAK is required in growth cones to control axon guidance (Hing et al., 1999) whereas Mbt is localised at AJs and is required for cell morphogenesis.. One major difference between group I and group II PAKs is the regulation of kinase activity. For group I PAK proteins it has been shown that binding of GTP-bound Cdc42 or Rac releases the inhibitory effect of the KID on catalytic activity (Buchwald et al., 2001; Chong et al., 2001; Lei et al., 2000). The lack of an obvious KID in group II PAKs (Fig. 5C) is reflected by their distinct biochemical properties. In contrast to group I PAKs, a slightly reduced rather than enhanced kinase activity is observed ...

In this report, we describe the use of a functional retroviral-based genetic screen to identify novel components of the TCR signaling pathway. We identified a novel role for PAK2 as a positive regulator of T cell activation. We have shown that a kinase domain truncation of PAK2 behaves as a dominant negative and blocks up-regulation of cell surface expression of the activation marker CD69, NFAT promoter activation, and calcium flux in Jurkat cells (Figs. 4⇑A, and 5, D and E). Simply mutating a single residue in the kinase domain of PAK2, thereby rendering it inactive, mimics the effect of complete removal of the kinase domain, illustrating that the function of PAK2 is dependent on its kinase activity (Fig. 5⇑). However, dominant-negative PAK2 did not significantly block phorbol ester-induced T cell activation, T cell chemotaxis, or receptor-mediated B cell activation (Figs. 3⇑ and 4⇑B). Given the similarity between the PAK family members, particularly PAK1 and PAK2, and given their ...
The involvement of p21-activated kinases (PAKs) in important cellular processes such as regulation of the actin skeleton morphology transduction of signals controlling gene expression and execution of programmed cell death has directed attention to the regulation of the activity of these kinases. by amino acid changes in the autoinhibitory website or the catalytic website indicated that GTPase-induced conformational changes rather than catalytic activation per se rendered PAK2 a target for tyrosine phosphorylation. Therefore PAK activation represents a potentially important point of convergence of tyrosine kinase- and p21 GTPase-dependent signaling pathways. The mammalian family of Ste20-like kinases consists of six members known as p21-triggered kinases 1 to 6 (PAK1 to -6).

5023 Objective: The high mortality rate of cancers is related to metastasis, which is a process involving alternation in cytoskeleton signaling pathways, increased directional cell migration and enhanced cell survival. Members of the Rho family of small GTPases (RhoA, Rac1 and Cdc42) have been found to be an important regulator for cytoskeleton reorganization. In mammalian cells, p21-activated serine/threonine kinases (Paks) were identified as effector molecules of Rac1 and Cdc42. To date, six members of Paks have been found and classified into two subgroups: Group 1, consisting of Paks1-3; and Group 2, consisting of Paks4-6. Paks can also be activated through GTPase-independent mechanisms, including direct phosphorylation by other kinases, such as protein kinase B. Due to their complicated activation processes and the presence of multiple downstream effectors, Paks play an important role in a wide range of cellular processes required for cancer progression. The objective of the present study is ...
Mutations in genes called oncogenes lead to the uncontrolled growth that is the hallmark of cancer. Oncogenes express proteins that regulate signaling pathways essential to the tumor cell. We study the Ras oncogene, one of the most commonly mutated oncogenes. Mutational activation of Ras causes changes in three basic properties of cells. These are: (1) increases in cell proliferation to stimulate growth, (2) reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton to promote invasion and metastases and (3) inhibition of apoptosis to prevent tumor cells from undergoing programmed cell death. Previously, we studied Ras signaling in tumors focusing on the role of Pak kinases, providing the first proof-of-principle that Pak kinases are targets for new targeted therapies. Indeed, numerous companies and academic groups are developing small molecule inhibitors of Pak. More recently we developed a systems approach to study Ras tumors using genomics, high throughput screening and siRNA screening. Ongoing studies are ...
β-PIX. The Dbl family GEF ARHGEF7 (β-PIX) is one of the most extensively studied for its roles in cell migration and invasion, and can form several different types of protein complexes (Fig. 3 A), some of which activate Rac and others CDC42. β-PIX can influence migration in different ways depending on the interactions it forms and its spatial distribution (Fig. 3 A).. Perhaps the best known signaling unit involving β-PIX is the trimolecular GIT-β-PIX-PAK complex, which promotes RAC1 activity and cell migration upon interaction of GIT with paxillin in integrin-containing focal adhesions (Frank and Hansen, 2008). GIT itself is a GAP for the Arf family of GTP-binding proteins, and thus the complex combines Rac activation with Arf inactivation, which may be important for its function in cell migration (Zhou et al., 2016). PAKs are protein kinases that are effectors for RAC1 and CDC42, and thus β-PIX is an example of a GEF that can directly couple its associated GTPases to a specific effector ...

Neutrophils serve as a first line of defense in innate immunity owing in part to their ability to rapidly migrate towards chemotactic factors derived from invading pathogens. As a migratory function, neutrophil chemotaxis is regulated by the Rho family of small GTPases. However, the mechanisms by which Rho GTPases orchestrate cytoskeletal dynamics in migrating neutrophils remain ill-defined. In this study, we characterized the role of p21-activated kinase (PAK) downstream of Rho GTPases in cytoskeletal remodeling and chemotactic processes of human neutrophils. We found that PAK activation occurred upon stimulation of neutrophils with f-Met-Leu-Phe (fMLP), and PAK accumulated at the actin-rich leading edge of stimulated neutrophils, suggesting a role for PAK in Rac-dependent actin remodeling. Treatment with the pharmacological PAK inhibitor, PF3758309, abrogated the integrity of RhoA-mediated actomyosin contractility and surface adhesion. Moreover, inhibition of PAK activity impaired neutrophil ...
Previously published reports support the concept that, besides promoting homotypic intercellular adhesion, cadherins may transfer intracellular signals. However, the signaling pathways triggered by cadherin clustering and their biological significance are still poorly understood. We report herein that transfection of VE-cadherin (VEC) cDNA in VEC null endothelial cells induces actin rearrangement and increases the number of vinculin positive adhesion plaques. VEC expression augments the level of active Rac but decreases active Rho. Microinjection of a dominant negative Rac mutant altered stress fiber organization, whereas inhibition of Rho was ineffective. VEC expression increased protein and mRNA levels of the Rac-specific guanosine exchange factor Tiam-1 and induced its localization at intercellular junctions. In addition, in the presence of VEC, the amounts of Tiam, Rac, and the Rac effector PAK as well as the level of PAK phosphorylation were found increased in the membrane/cytoskeletal ...

Kaur R., Liu X., Gjoerup O., Zhang A., Yuan X., Balk S.P., Schneider M.C., Lu M.L.. The p21-activated kinases (PAKs) contain an N-terminal Cdc42/Rac interactive binding domain, which in the group 1 PAKs (PAK1, 2, and 3) regulates the activity of an adjacent conserved autoinhibitory domain. In contrast, the group 2 PAKs (PAK4, 5, and 6) lack this autoinhibitory domain and are not activated by Cdc42/Rac binding, and the mechanisms that regulate their kinase activity have been unclear. This study found that basal PAK6 kinase activity was repressed by a p38 mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase antagonist and could be strongly stimulated by constitutively active MAP kinase kinase 6 (MKK6), an upstream activator of p38 MAP kinases. Mutation of a consensus p38 MAP kinase target site at serine 165 decreased PAK6 kinase activity. Moreover, PAK6 was directly activated by MKK6, and mutation of tyrosine 566 in a consensus MKK6 site (threonine-proline-tyrosine, TPY) in the activation loop of the PAK6 ...
We previously showed that the G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) kinase-interacting protein 1 (GIT1) was a key mediator for thrombin-mediated endothelial cell (EC) focal adhesion turnover and permeability. Recent data show that GIT1 traffics between three distinct cellular compartments (cytoplasm, focal adhesions and cell membrane) through interactions with diverse proteins including ARF, Rac1 and Cdc42 GTPases, p21-activated kinase (PAK), PAK-interacting exchange factor (PIX) and paxillin. Importantly, we and others showed that tyrosine kinase receptors (TKRs) such as the epidermal growth factor receptor stimulate GIT1 phosphorylation via c-Src, suggesting a role for GIT1 in TKR signaling. VEGF is the most important TKR in EC; essential for cell survival, migration and angiogenesis. Recently, actin-rich structures, whose assembly is regulated by c-Src, termed podosomes, were found to contribute to tissue invasion, matrix remodeling and cell motility. Since GIT1 is a substrate of Src, podosome ...
Defects in p21-activated kinase (PAK) lead to dendritic spine abnormalities and are sufficient to cause cognition impairment. The decrease in PAK in the brain of Alzheimers disease (AD) patients is suspected to underlie synaptic and dendritic disturbances associated with its clinical expression, particularly with symptoms related to frontal cortex dysfunction. To investigate the role of PAK combined with Aβ and tau pathologies (3xTg-AD mice) in the frontal cortex, we generated a transgenic model of AD with a deficit in PAK activity (3xTg-AD-dnPAK mice). PAK inactivation had no effect on Aβ40 and Aβ42 levels, but increased the phosphorylation ratio of tau in detergent-insoluble protein fractions in the frontal cortex of 18-month-old heterozygous 3xTg-AD mice. Morphometric analyses of layer II/III pyramidal neurons in the frontal cortex showed that 3xTg-AD-dnPAK neurons exhibited significant dendritic attrition, lower spine density and longer spines compared to NonTg and 3xTg-AD mice. Finally, ...
Elevated s21 turned on kinase (PAK) signaling and reflection provides been discovered in the intrusive methodologies of intense papillary thyroid cancers (PTCs), including those with RET/PTC, BRAF Sixth is v600E, and mutant RAS manifestation. or PAK1, demonstrating that both signaling pathways are involved in BRAF-regulated cell motility. To further characterize BRAF-PAK signaling, immunofluorescence and immunoprecipitation exhibited that both exogenously overexpressed and endogenous PAK1 and BRAF co-localize and actually interact, and that this conversation was enhanced in mitosis. Finally, we exhibited that acute induction of BRAFV600E manifestation in murine thyroid glands results in increased PAK manifestation and activity confirming a positive signaling relationship (Knauf et al. 2005; Knauf, et al. 2011) and occurs in ~40% of all human PTC samples, although this prevalence varies depending on geographic location and ethnicity. BRAFV600E in PTC is usually associated with more aggressive ...

Mutations in genes called oncogenes lead to the uncontrolled growth that is the hallmark of cancer. Oncogenes express proteins that regulate signaling pathways essential to the tumor cell. We study the Ras oncogene, one of the most commonly mutated oncogenes. Mutational activation of Ras causes changes in three basic properties of cells. These are: (1) increases in cell proliferation to stimulate growth, (2) reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton to promote invasion and metastases and (3) inhibition of apoptosis to prevent tumor cells from undergoing programmed cell death. Previously, we studied Ras signaling in tumors focusing on the role of Pak kinases, providing the first proof-of-principle that Pak kinases are targets for new targeted therapies. Indeed, numerous companies and academic groups are developing small molecule inhibitors of Pak. More recently we developed a systems approach to study Ras tumors using genomics, high throughput screening and siRNA screening. Ongoing studies are ...

This is a potent inhibitor of Group I PAK enzymes (PAK1, 2 and 3; PAK1 Ki = 4 nM) that has been screened versus 235 kinases at 100 nM, with biochemical inhibition of 5 kinases (IC50 ,50 nM) observed. Expanded off-target kinase screening would be helpful to enhance the selectivity profile. Parallel use of the orthogonal PAK1-selective probe NVS-PAK1-1 is suggested to aid interpretation of cellular effects between PAK family members. The selectivity of G-5555 for Group I PAK enzymes over non-kinase targets (IC50 ,10 uM for 36/42 diverse receptors, ion channels, enzymes and transporters) supports its use as a cellular probe. On-target activity in cells was demonstrated (inhibition of pMEK S298, IC50 = 69 nM) and supports the suggested concentration range for cellular studies. Compound pharmacokinetics are suitable for in vivo studies and on-target modulation of PAK-dependent pMEK S298 was demonstrated in H292 xenografts following 20 and 30 mg/kg single, oral doses. A caveat to the use of the ...
