|Description:||Domain in homologues of a S. cerevisiae phosphatidylinositol transfer protein (Sec14p) and in RhoGAPs, RhoGEFs and the RasGAP, neurofibromin (NF1). Lipid-binding domain. The SEC14 domain of Dbl is known to associate with G protein beta/gamma subunits.|
|Interpro abstract (IPR001251):|
The CRAL-TRIO domain is a protein structural domain that binds small lipophilic molecules [(PUBMED:12767229)]. The domain is named after cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein (CRALBP) and TRIO guanine exchange factor.
The CRAL-TRIO domain is found in GTPase-activating proteins (GAPs), guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) and a family of hydrophobic ligand binding proteins, including the yeast SEC14 protein and mammalian retinaldehyde- and alpha-tocopherol-binding proteins. The domain may either constitute all of the protein or only part of it [(PUBMED:2198263), (PUBMED:8349655), (PUBMED:9461221), (PUBMED:10829015)].
The structure of the domain in SEC14 proteins has been determined [(PUBMED:9461221)]. The structure contains several alpha helices as well as a beta sheet composed of 6 strands. Strands 2,3,4 and 5 form a parallel beta sheet with strands 1 and 6 being anti-parallel. The structure also identified a hydrophobic binding pocket for lipid binding.

The Rho family of GTP-binding proteins has been implicated in the regulation of various cellular functions including actin cytoskeleton-dependent morphological change. Its activity is directed by intracellular signals mediated by various types of receptors such as G protein-coupled receptors. However, the mechanisms underlying receptor-dependent regulation of Rho family members remain incompletely understood. The guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) Dbl targets Rho family proteins thereby stimulating their GDP/GTP exchange, and thus is believed to be involved in receptor-mediated regulation of the proteins. Here, we show the association of Dbl with G protein betagamma subunits (Gbetagamma) in transient co-expression and cell-free systems. An amino-terminal portion conserved among a subset of Dbl family proteins is sufficient for the binding of Gbetagamma. In fact, Ost and Kalirin, which contain this Gbetagamma-binding motif, also associate with Gbetagamma. c-Jun N-terminal kinase was synergistically activated upon co-expression of Dbl and Gbeta in a dominant-negative Rho-sensitive manner. However, GEF activity of Dbl toward Rho as measured by in vitro GDP binding assays remained unaffected following Gbetagamma binding, suggesting that additional signals may be required for the regulation of Dbl.

Phosphatidylinositol transfer proteins (PITPs) can bind specifically and transfer a single phosphatidylinositol (PI) molecule between phospholipid membranes in an ATP-independent manner in vitro. PITPs exist in all the eukaryotic systems from yeast to human. PITP plays an essential role in intracellular vesicle flow and inositol lipid signaling. The crystal structure of yeast PITP Sec14p reveals a large hydrophobic pocket to accommodate the acyl chains of phospholipid molecules. At the opening of the pocket, a hydrogen bond network may render Sec14p the binding specificity to PI molecules. The structure suggests that the PI-binding ability may play an important role in the in vivo function of PITPs.

The yeast phosphatidylinositol-transfer protein (Sec14) catalyses exchange of phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylcholine between membrane bilayers in vitro. In vivo, Sec14 activity is essential for vesicle budding from the Golgi complex. Here we report a three-dimensional structure for Sec14 at 2.5 A resolution. Sec14 consists of twelve alpha-helices, six beta-strands, eight 3(10)-helices and has two distinct domains. The carboxy-terminal domain forms a hydrophobic pocket which, in the crystal structure, is occupied by two molecules of n-octyl-beta-D-glucopyranoside and represents the phospholipid-binding domain. This pocket is reinforced by a string motif whose disruption in a sec14 temperature-sensitive mutant results in destabilization of the phospholipid-binding domain. Finally, we have identified an unusual surface helix that may play a critical role in driving Sec14-mediated phospholipid exchange. From this structure, we derive the first molecular clues into how a phosphatidylinositol-transfer protein functions.

- UNC-73 activates the Rac GTPase and is required for cell and growth cone migrations in C. elegans.
- Cell. 1998; 92: 785-95
- Display abstract
unc-73 is required for cell migrations and axon guidance in C. elegans and encodes overlapping isoforms of 283 and 189 kDa that are closely related to the vertebrate Trio and Kalirin proteins, respectively. UNC-73A contains, in order, eight spectrin-like repeats, a Dbl/Pleckstrin homology (DH/PH) element, an SH3-like domain, a second DH/PH element, an immunoglobulin domain, and a fibronectin type III domain. UNC-73B terminates just downstream of the SH3-like domain. The first DH/PH element specifically activates the Rac GTPase in vitro and stimulates actin polymerization when expressed in Rat2 cells. Both functions are eliminated by introducing the S1216F mutation of unc-73(rh40) into this DH domain. Our results suggest that UNC-73 acts cell autonomously in a protein complex to regulate actin dynamics during cell and growth cone migrations.

- Kalirin, a cytosolic protein with spectrin-like and GDP/GTP exchange factor-like domains that interacts with peptidylglycine alpha-amidating monooxygenase, an integral membrane peptide-processing enzyme.
- J Biol Chem. 1997; 272: 12667-75
- Display abstract
Although the integral membrane proteins that catalyze steps in the biosynthesis of neuroendocrine peptides are known to contain routing information in their cytosolic domains, the proteins recognizing this routing information are not known. Using the yeast two-hybrid system, we previously identified P-CIP10 as a protein interacting with the cytosolic routing determinants of peptidylglycine alpha-amidating monooxygenase (PAM). P-CIP10 is a 217-kDa cytosolic protein with nine spectrin-like repeats and adjacent Dbl homology and pleckstrin homology domains typical of GDP/GTP exchange factors. In the adult rat, expression of P-CIP10 is most prevalent in the brain. Corticotrope tumor cells stably expressing P-CIP10 and PAM produce longer and more highly branched neuritic processes than nontransfected cells or cells expressing only PAM. The turnover of newly synthesized PAM is accelerated in cells co-expressing P-CIP10. P-CIP10 binds to selected members of the Rho subfamily of small GTP binding proteins (Rac1, but not RhoA or Cdc42). P-CIP10 (kalirin), a member of the Dbl family of proteins, may serve as part of a signal transduction system linking the catalytic domains of PAM in the lumen of the secretory pathway to cytosolic factors regulating the cytoskeleton and signal transduction pathways.

Genetic screening and biochemical studies during the past few years have led to the discovery of a family of cell growth regulatory proteins and oncogene products for which the Dbl oncoprotein is a prototype. These putative guanine nucleotide exchange factors for Rho family small GTP-binding proteins (G proteins) all contain a Dbl homology domain in tandem with a pleckstrin homology domain, and seem to activate specific members of the Rho family of proteins to elicit various biological functions in cells. The Dbl homology domain is directly responsible for binding and activating the small G proteins to mediate downstream signaling events, whereas the pleckstrin homology domain may serve to target these positive regulators of G proteins to specific cellular locations to carry out the signaling task. Despite the increasing interest in the Dbl family of proteins, there is still a good deal to learn regarding the biochemical mechanisms that underlie their diverse biological functions.

- Characterization of two structurally related Xenopus laevis protein tyrosine phosphatases with homology to lipid-binding proteins.
- J Biol Chem. 1994; 269: 19639-45
- Display abstract
We have chosen Xenopus laevis as a model system to study how protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPases) function in growth and development. As an initial step, we have previously isolated in a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based protocol cDNA fragments which correspond to sequences within the catalytic domains of PTPases (Yang, Q., and Tonks, N. K. (1993) Adv. Protein Phosphatases 7, 359-372). Two of these PCR products, designated X1 and X10, have now been used to screen a X. laevis ovary cDNA library to obtain complete coding sequences for two distinct PTPases. The X1 cDNA encodes a protein (PTPX1) of 693 amino acids (approximately 79 kDa); the X10 cDNA encodes a protein of 597 amino acids (approximately 69 kDa). Both PTPX1 and PTPX10 lack potential membrane spanning sequences and therefore can be classified as non-transmembrane/cytoplasmic PTPases. While the overall structure of these PTPases are similar, sharing segments of 95% amino acid identity, they differ in that PTPX1 contains a unique 97-amino acid insert between the N-terminal segment and C-terminal catalytic domain. The absence of complete identity between PTPX1 and PTPX10 suggests that these two sequences are the products of separate genes and not the result of alternative splicing. This conclusion is confirmed by PCR analysis of Xenopus genomic DNA. Both PTPases share sequence identities in their N-terminal segments with two lipid-binding proteins, cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein and SEC14p, a phospholipid transferase. In addition, the unique insert sequence of PTPX1 shares identity with PSSA, a protein involved in phosphatidylserine biosynthesis. Sequence comparison suggests that PTPX10 is the Xenopus homolog of the human PTPase Meg-02, while PTPX1 is a structurally related yet distinct PTPase. Intrinsic PTPase activity of PTPX1 and PTPX10 was demonstrated in lysates of Sf9 cells infected with recombinant baculoviruses encoding either enzyme. PTPX1 can be recovered in both soluble and membrane fractions from Xenopus oocytes with the membrane form exhibiting approximately 4-fold higher activity than the soluble form.

Protein tyrosine phosphorylation is important in the regulation of cell growth, the cell cycle, and malignant transformation. We have cloned a cDNA that encodes a cytosolic protein-tyrosine-phosphatase (PTPase), MEG2, from MEG-01 cell and human umbilical vein endothelial cell cDNA libraries. The 4-kilobase cDNA sequence of PTPase MEG2 corresponds in length to the mRNA transcript detected by Northern blotting. The predicted open reading frame encodes a 68-kDa protein composed of 593 amino acids and has no apparent signal or transmembrane sequences, suggesting that it is a cytosolic protein. The C-terminal region has a PTPase catalytic domain that has 30-40% amino acid identity to other known PTPases. The N-terminal region has 254 amino acids that are 28% identical to cellular retinaldehyde-binding protein and 24% identical to yeast SEC14p, a protein that has phosphatidylinositol transfer activity and is required for protein secretion through the Golgi complex in yeast. Recombinant PTPase MEG2 expressed in Escherichia coli possesses PTPase activity. PTPase MEG2 mRNA was detected in 12 cell lines tested, which suggests that this phosphatase is widely expressed. The structure of PTPase MEG2 implies that a tyrosine phosphatase could participate in the transfer of hydrophobic ligands or in functions of the Golgi apparatus.

- An essential role for a phospholipid transfer protein in yeast Golgi function.
- Nature. 1990; 347: 561-2

Progression of proteins through the secretory pathway of eukaryotic cells involves a continuous rearrangement of macromolecular structures made up of proteins and phospholipids. The protein SEC14p is essential for transport of proteins from the yeast Golgi complex. Independent characterization of the SEC14 gene and the PIT1 gene, which encodes a phosphatidylinositol/phosphatidylcholine transfer protein in yeast, indicated that these two genes are identical. Phospholipid transfer proteins are a class of cytosolic proteins that are ubiquitous among eukaryotic cells and are distinguished by their ability to catalyse the exchange of phospholipids between membranes in vitro. We show here that the SEC14 and PIT1 genes are indeed identical and that the growth phenotype of a sec14-1ts mutant extends to the inability of its transfer protein to effect phospholipid transfer in vitro. These results therefore establish for the first time an in vivo function for a phospholipid transfer protein, namely a role in the compartment-specific stimulation of protein secretion.
