Co-Chaperones in Targeting and Delivery of Misfolded Proteins to the 26S Proteasome

Amanda B. Abildgaard, Sarah K. Gersing, Sven Larsen-Ledet, Sofie V. Nielsen, Amelie Stein, Kresten Lindorff-Larsen, Rasmus Hartmann-Petersen
2020 Biomolecules  
Protein homeostasis (proteostasis) is essential for the cell and is maintained by a highly conserved protein quality control (PQC) system, which triages newly synthesized, mislocalized and misfolded proteins. The ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS), molecular chaperones, and co-chaperones are vital PQC elements that work together to facilitate degradation of misfolded and toxic protein species through the 26S proteasome. However, the underlying mechanisms are complex and remain partly unclear.
more » ... e, we provide an overview of the current knowledge on the co-chaperones that directly take part in targeting and delivery of PQC substrates for degradation. While J-domain proteins (JDPs) target substrates for the heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) chaperones, nucleotide-exchange factors (NEFs) deliver HSP70-bound substrates to the proteasome. So far, three NEFs have been established in proteasomal delivery: HSP110 and the ubiquitin-like (UBL) domain proteins BAG-1 and BAG-6, the latter acting as a chaperone itself and carrying its substrates directly to the proteasome. A better understanding of the individual delivery pathways will improve our ability to regulate the triage, and thus regulate the fate of aberrant proteins involved in cell stress and disease, examples of which are given throughout the review.

A Sleeping Beauty DNA transposon-based genetic sensor for functional screening of vitamin D3 analogues

Nicklas H Staunstrup, Nynne Sharma, Rasmus O Bak, Lars Svensson, Thomas K Petersen, Lene Aarenstrup, Karsten Kristiansen, Lars Bolund, Jacob Mikkelsen
2011 BMC Biotechnology  
Analogues of vitamin D3 are extensively used in the treatment of various illnesses, such as osteoporosis, inflammatory skin diseases, and cancer. Functional testing of new vitamin D3 analogues and formulations for improved systemic and topical administration is supported by sensitive screening methods that allow a comparative evaluation of drug properties. As a new tool in functional screening of vitamin D3 analogues, we describe a genomically integratable sensor for sensitive drug detection.

The tri-cistronic genetic sensor encodes a drug-sensoring protein, a reporter protein expressed from an activated sensor-responsive promoter, and a resistance marker. Results: The three expression cassettes, inserted in a head-to-tail orientation in a Sleeping Beauty DNA transposon vector, are efficiently inserted as a single genetic entity into the genome of cells of interest in a reaction catalyzed by the hyperactive SB100X transposase. The applicability of the sensor for screening purposes is demonstrated by the functional comparison of potent synthetic analogues of vitamin D3 designed for the treatment of psoriasis and cancer. In clones of human keratinocytes carrying from a single to numerous insertions of the vitamin D3 sensor, a sensitive sensor read-out is detected upon exposure to even low concentrations of vitamin D3 analogues. In comparative studies, the sensor unveils superior potency of new candidate drugs in comparison with analogues that are currently in clinical use. Conclusions: Our findings demonstrate the use of the genetic sensor as a tool in first-line evaluation of new vitamin D3 analogues and pave the way for new types of drug delivery studies in sensor-transgenic animals.

Arachidonic acid-dependent inhibition of adipocyte differentiation requires PKA activity and is associated with sustained expression of cyclooxygenases

2003 Journal of Lipid Research  
Arachidonic acid inhibits adipocyte differentiation of 3T3-L1 cells via a prostaglandin synthesis-dependent pathway. Here we show that this inhibition requires the presence of a cAMP-elevating agent during the first two days of treatment. Suppression of protein kinase A activity by H-89 restored differentiation in the presence of arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid treatment led to a prolonged activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinases 1 and 2 (ERK1/2), and suppression of ERK1/2

Upon induction of differentiation, expression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) was transiently induced and then declined, whereas COX-1 expression declined gradually as differentiation progressed. Treatment with arachidonic acid led to sustained expression of COX-1 and COX-2. Omission of a cAMP-elevating agent or addition of H-89 or U0126 prevented sustained expression of COX-2. Unexpectedly, we observed that selective COX-1 or COX-2 inhibitors rescued adipocyte differentiation in the presence of arachidonic acid as effectively as did the nonselective COX-inhibitor indomethacin. De novo fatty acid synthesis, diacylglycerol acyltransferase (DGAT) activity, and triacylglycerol accumulation were repressed in cells treated with arachidonic acid. Indomethacin restored DGAT activity and triacylglycerol accumulation without restoring de novo fatty acid synthesis, resulting in an enhanced incorporation of arachidonic acid into cellular triacylglycerolsArachidonic aciddependent inhibition of adipocyte differentiation requires PKA activity and is associated with sustained expression of cyclooxygenases.
