5 How do cells regulate [Ca2+]? Sequester in ER, bind to proteins! Calmodulin binds 4 Ca2+ ionsIn most cases, CM +Ca2+ binds to an effectorAccordingly, CM –Ca2+ dissociates from targetCM/kinase
7 Protein Tyrosine Kinases (PTK) 5 classes in the superfamilyAGC group: PKA, PKG, PKC, Rac, G-protein kinasesCaMK group: kinases regulated by Ca2+/CaMCMGC group: cyclin-dependent kinases ERK, MAP, Casein kinasePTK group: conventional protein tyrosine kinases Src, Abl, Fak, PDGF, IR5. OPK: Other Protein Kinases
8 Tyrosine kinases can be cytosolic or integral membrane receptors .SubstrateSingle Membrane spanningHydrophobic domain.How many does the GPCR have?No membrane-spanning domain
9 Src, is the product of the first proto-oncogene to be characterized. What are the substrates for TKs? Src, is a non-receptor tyrosine kinaseSrc, is the product of the first proto-oncogene to be characterized.Fariba Fana
10 Even though Src is a cytoplasmic Tyrosine Kinase, Src and other proteins that have Src-homology domains can bind to RTKs!Src homology domains: (SH)
11 Other proteins have homologies to Src domains SH Src-homology regions SH1 domain: Catalytic domain of the protein: kinase activitySH2 and SH3 domains: mediate protein-protein interactions in cellular signaling cascades: very common in proteins outside the Src family.SH2: binds peptides with consensus: (PTyr-Met/Val-X-Met)SH3: b-barrel. Interacts with proline-rich peptide targetsSH4 domain: myristylation and membrane-localization signal
12 The Src homology 2 (SH2) domain has been found in a number of signal transduction pathways. Its primary function is to bind phosphotyrosines and in doing so localizing different proteins necessary to transmitt the proper function Pawson, 1997.Elegant experiments using a combinatorial approach showed that specificity for a particular protein is encoded in the amino acids following the phosphotyrosine Songyang, Monday, April :26SH2 Domains
13 SH3 b-barrel of 5-6 anti-parallel b-strands. Binds a polyproline helix The loss of binding can lead to a constitutively active Src molecule and cancerWilliams, 1998
14 Receptor tyrosine kinases All are single membrane-spanning proteins General RelevanceTyrosine phosphorylation is frequently an EARLY event in signaling.Amplification by downstream signaling elements greatly amplifies the effects of low levels of tyrosine phosphorylation that are most directly induced by extracellular triggers. Example: PLC and PI3KActivation of multiple kinases (kinase cascades) including ser/thr as well as tyrosine kinases, is a frequent consequence of these early events. Example: MAP KinaseThere is often cross-talk between tyrosine kinase-induced pathways and other, e.g. G protein, signaling pathways.
15 Cell-cell recognition Cell cycle control Immune responses Development You know that I’m going to ask you why you should care about receptor tyrosine kinases!Activation of receptor tyrosine kinases ultimately leads to cell division or differentiation, for example, during embryonic development.Other functionsGrowth controlCell-cell recognitionCell cycle controlImmune responsesDevelopmentDifferentiationAre these processes important?What happens if a checkpoint looses function?
16 Tyrosine Kinases and associated genes and proteins are implicated in developmental defects and cancer.Excessive activation of receptor tyrosine kinases can lead to uncontrolled growth and malignant transformation.Many defective or viral forms of tyrosine kinases and associated proteins are oncogenic:v-srcablerbB

18 What makes a RTK active? a) Conformational change: b) Dimerization: Insulin Receptor Kinase (IRK) Binds insulinAutophosphorylatesActivates substrates including IRS-1 (insulin receptor substrate 1) by tyrosine phosphorylationb) Dimerization:PDGF Receptor: Binds platelet derived growth factor (PDGF)Monomeric integral membrane proteinActivates enzymes including PI3 kinase, Phospholipase Cg and GAP (GTPase activating protein) by tyrosine phosphorylation2. EGF Receptor3. Eph Receptor family: Erythropoietin producing hepatocellular carcinoma cell lineBinds to Ephrins (ligand)Role in neurogenesis (neuronal pathfinding)
19 Response of the insulin receptor kinase (IRK) to ligand binding Fig. 15.20 Heterotetramer (2a, 2b)Insulin binding leads to change in structure (different from other RTKs)Conformation change activates b-subunit TK activityb subunit phosphorylates Tyr residues on cytoplasmic domains as well as downstream substrates (IRS)
20 Three-dimensional structures of the insulin receptor tyrosine kinase (IRK) IRK conformational change upon activation loop phosphorylation. The N-terminal lobe of IRK is colored white and the C-terminal lobe is colored dark grey. The activation loop (green) contains autophosphorylation sites Y1158, Y1162 and Y1163, and the catalytic loop (orange) contains the putative catalytic base, D1132. Also shown are the unbound/bound ATP analog and tyrosine-containing substrate peptide (pink). [Hubbard, EMBO J. 16, 5572 (1997)]
21 Once Tyr-Phosphorylated, the IRK activity trigerrs a number of signaling pathways. Phosphatidylinositol 3-hydroxy kinase, makes PIP2,PIP3Grb2, Sos, activates RasActivation of PI-PLC
22 Unlike IRK, most RTKs are present as a monomer in the resting cell membrane
23 Receptor Tyrosine Kinases Receptor protein-tyrosine kinases transmit signals across the plasma membrane, from the cell exterior to the cytoplasm.
24 Receptor tyrosine kinases The interaction of the external domain of a receptor tyrosine kinase with the ligand, often a growth factor, up-regulates the enzymatic activity of the intracellular catalytic domain, which causes tyrosine phosphorylation of cytoplasmic signaling molecules.Fig
25 Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor Tyrosine Kinase During the metastasis of tumor cells, the adhesion between normal cells and cancerous cells must be broken. Many molecules involved in this process have been identified, and most are implicated in either heritable human diseases or cancer. For instance, members of the fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) family have been linked widely to the development of cancer and disease.Dimeric assembly of 2 FGF2:FGFR1 complexes. FGF2 is colored orange, Ig-like domain 2 of FGFR1 is colored green, and Ig-like domain 3 of FGFR1 is colored cyan. [Plotnikov et al., Cell 98, 641 (1999)]

28 RTKs can activate the Ras pathway of cellular signaling Ras is a small G-protein (monomeric 21-kD)Mutant Ras proteins are unable to dissociate GTP, so they are stuck in the ON or proliferative state: ras (gene) mutations found in 30% of human cancers.Do you think mutations in Ras-GAPs can lead to disease? Oui!

33 Nitric oxide (NO) is a small membrane-permeating free radical Nitric oxide (NO) is a small membrane-permeating free radical. It is synthesized as needed, since it cannot be stored in vesicles. Consequently, regulation of its synthesis is crucial.Nitric oxide synthase (NOS) converts arginine to NO and citrullineNOS is activated by Ca2+/calmodulinNOS is inactivated by phosphorylationNOS is located only in neurons in CNS (2% of all cells)
