How do cells regulate [Ca 2+ ]? Sequester in ER, bind to proteins! Calmodulin binds 4 Ca 2+ ions In most cases, CM +Ca 2+ binds to an effector Accordingly, CM –Ca 2+ dissociates from target CM/kinase
Signaling by Tyrosine Kinases
Protein Tyrosine Kinases (PTK) 5 classes in the superfamily 1.AGC group : PKA, PKG, PKC, Rac, G-protein kinases 2.CaMK group : kinases regulated by Ca 2+ /CaM 3.CMGC group : cyclin-dependent kinases ERK, MAP, Casein kinase 4.PTK group : conventional protein tyrosine kinases Src, Abl, Fak, PDGF, IR 5. OPK : Other Protein Kinases
Tyrosine kinases can be cytosolic or integral membrane receptors. Single Membrane spanning Hydrophobic domain. How many does the GPCR have? No membrane-spanning domain Substrate
What are the substrates for TKs? Src, is a non-receptor tyrosine kinase Fariba Fana Src, is the product of the first proto-oncogene to be characterized.
Src and other proteins that have Src-homology domains can bind to RTKs! Src homology domains: (SH) Even though Src is a cytoplasmic Tyrosine Kinase,
Other proteins have homologies to Src domains SH Src-homology regions SH1 domain: Catalytic domain of the protein: kinase activity SH2 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: -barrel. Interacts with proline-rich peptide targets SH4 domain: myristylation and membrane-localization signal
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, 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 :26 SH2 Domains
SH3 -barrel of 5-6 anti- parallel -strands. Binds a polyproline helix The loss of binding can lead to a constitutively active Src molecule and cancer Williams, 1998
Receptor tyrosine kinases All are single membrane-spanning proteins General Relevance Tyrosine 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 PI3K Activation of multiple kinases (kinase cascades) including ser/thr as well as tyrosine kinases, is a frequent consequence of these early events. Example: MAP Kinase There is often cross-talk between tyrosine kinase-induced pathways and other, e.g. G protein, signaling pathways.
You know that Im 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 functions Growth control Cell-cell recognition Cell cycle control Immune responses Development Differentiation Are these processes important? What happens if a check point looses function?
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-src abl erbB
What makes a RTK active? a) Conformational change : Insulin Receptor Kinase (IRK) Binds insulin Autophosphorylates Activates substrates including IRS-1 (insulin receptor substrate 1) by tyrosine phosphorylation b) Dimerization : 1.PDGF Receptor : Binds platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) Monomeric integral membrane protein Autophosphorylates Activates enzymes including PI 3 kinase, Phospholipase C and GAP (GTPase activating protein) by tyrosine phosphorylation 2. EGF Receptor Monomeric integral membrane protein 3. Eph Receptor family : Erythropoietin producing hepatocellular carcinoma cell line Binds to Ephrins (ligand) Role in neurogenesis (neuronal pathfinding)
Response of the insulin receptor kinase (IRK) to ligand binding Fig Heterotetramer (2, 2 ) Insulin binding leads to change in structure (different from other RTKs) Conformation change activates -subunit TK activity subunit phosphorylates Tyr residues on cytoplasmic domains as well as downstream substrates (IRS)
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)]
Once Tyr-Phosphorylated, the IRK activity trigerrs a number of signaling pathways. Phosphatidylinositol 3-hydroxy kinase, makes PIP2,PIP3 Grb2, Sos, activates Ras Activation of PI-PLC
Unlike IRK, most RTKs are present as a monomer in the resting cell membrane
Receptor Tyrosine Kinases Receptor protein-tyrosine kinases transmit signals across the plasma membrane, from the cell exterior to the cytoplasm.
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
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)]

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!

NO signaling The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1998 "for their discoveries concerning nitric oxide as a signalling molecule in the cardiovascular system" Robert F. Furchgott Louis J. Ignarro Ferid Murad USA SUNY Health Science Center Brooklyn, NY, USA UCLA School of Medicine Los Angeles, CA, USA University of Texas, Health Science Center Dallas, TX, USA
Nitric oxide is a free radical It contains an unpaired electron. N=O Role in macrophage killing of pathogens NO also acts as a second messenger that causes relaxation of smooth muscle
Signal transduction pathway mediated by NO and cGMP PDE5
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 citrulline NOS is activated by Ca2+/calmodulin NOS is inactivated by phosphorylation NOS is located only in neurons in CNS (2% of all cells)
Nitric Oxide Synthase Complexed with Dystrophin and Absent from Skeletal Muscle Sarcolemma In Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy NOS is a dystrophin-binding protein J. E. Brenman, D. S. Chao, H. Xia, K.
