7 General Principles of Signal Transduction 4. Cells can remember the effects of some signals 5. Cells can adjust their sensitivity to a signal

8 General Principles of Signal Transduction 6. Signal can exhibit complex responses to signal concentration

9 Signaling molecules Signaling molecules come in many chemical forms: Proteins: insulin, glucagon Steroids et al.: testosterone, estradiol, cortisol Amines: thyroxine, catecholamines, acetylcholine Gases: nitric oxide Signaling pathways require molecules with rapid rates of synthesis and degradation Typically released from one cell and recognized by another cell

10 Signaling molecules Secretory signals: Autocrine-signals affect same cell or cell type Paracrine-signals affect neighbouring cell Endocrine-signals affect distant cells Contact-dependent signals: -signals are not released but affect other cells in contact through protein-protein interactions

11 Autocrine signaling Signals released by one cell affect other cells in the immediate vicinity Amplify a response by inducing many like-cells to respond in the same way Allows cells to exhibit a coordinated response (a community effect)

12 Autocrine signaling

13 Paracrine signaling Signals released by one cell affect different cells in the immediate vicinity Synaptic transmission resembles paracrine stimulation but the response is limited to cells in very close proximity The outward propagation of the signal is limited by -cellular uptake, -extracellular degradation -& binding

14 Endocrine signaling Signals released by one cell affect different cells far away Endocrine signaling often exerts multiple effects on the organism by affecting many different tissues

16 Receptors = Proteins that bind signals and initiate a signaling cascade Cell membrane receptors -integral membrane proteins that bind an extracellular signal and start a signal cascade Intracellular receptors -nuclear hormone receptors

17 Nuclear hormone receptors Examples include -steroid hormone receptor and -thyroid hormone receptor -Retinoic acid receptor -Vitamine D receptor NHRs are transcription factors that respond to specific ligands Ligands alter the ability to bind to specific DNA regulatory elements

18 Intracellular signal transduction Once the receptor is activated, the signal is propagated by proteins that act as: Relay proteins Messenger proteins Adaptor proteins Amplifier proteins Transducer proteins Bifurcation proteins Integrator proteins Latent gene regulatory proteins

19

20 Intracellular signal transduction Activated cell membrane receptors can alter the activity of intracellular enzymes including: Protein modifying enzymes Kinases (PKA, PKC, PKG)/ phosphatases acetylases/ deacetylases Lipid modifying enzymes Phospholipases (PLCβ ou γ) Phosphotidyl inositol kinase (PI3K) Nucleotide modifying enzymes cyclases/ phosphodiesterases

21 Protein kinases

22 Phospholipases PLC generates DAG and phosphoinositides, such as IP3 (inositol 1, 4, 5- triphosphate)

23 Targets The final targets of signaling cascades are usually proteins: Regulators of gene expression (transcription factors, histone remodeling enzymes) Enzymes (metabolic enzymes) Structural proteins (cytoskeletal proteins) Effects alter activity (catalytic, DNA binding) or the ability to interact with other proteins (structural proteins, subcellular localization).

24 Cell surface receptors 3 main classes of cell surface receptors: Ion-channel linked receptors Enzyme linked receptors may possess intrinsic enzyme activity or once ligands bind, activate enzyme activity G-protein linked receptors are monomeric (7TM) and activate trimeric G-protein (GTP-binding protein) that regulate downstream proteins

25 Enzyme-linked receptors 5 main classes distinguished by: type of effector (e.g. kinase vs. phosphatase) target (serine/threonine, tyrosine, histidine) type of linkage between receptor and enzyme 1. Receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) 2. Tyrosine kinase linked receptor 3. Receptor serine/threonine kinase (PKA, PKC, PKG, PK-Ca 2+ -CAM) 4. Receptor guanylyl cyclase 5. Histidine-kinase associated receptors

26 Receptor tyrosine kinases Most common type of receptor for many common protein hormones including EGF, PDGF, FGF, HGF, IGF-1, VEGF, NGF.

27 Receptor tyrosine kinases Receptor itself possesses intrinsic tyrosine kinase activity Once the ligand binds, the receptor can dimerize and it become an active tyrosine kinase It phosphorylates itself (autophosphorylation), causing: 1. Increase kinase activity 2. Increased affinity for other proteins Once bound, these docking proteins can become phosphorylated

40 JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG OF PROTEIN DOMAINS USED FOR PROTEIN/PROTEIN INTERACTIONS

41 Docking of intracellular proteins on phosphotyrosines Phosphotyrosine domains are binding sites for many different proteins with SH2 (=PTB) domains These can be enzymes (e.g., PLC, PI3K) or they can act as adaptor molecules to bind other proteins (e.g. Grb2)

42 Linking RTK to Ras and the MAPK cascade Once an adaptor protein binds to the RTK (e.g., Grb2), it attracts another protein - Ras GEF (guanine nucleotide exchange factor) Ras GEF induces Ras to exchange its GDP for GTP (activating Ras). Active Ras then activates MAPKKK, which phosphorylates and activates MAPKK, which phosphorylates and activates MAPK, which phosphorylates many proteins, including transcription factors.

44 Ras GTPase Cycle GTP Ras-GTP H 2 O Guanine Nucleotide Exchange Factors (GEFs) GDP Ras-GDP GTPase Activating Proteins (GAPs) Pi -GAPs discovered biochemically -GEFs discovered genetically- first in yeast and then drosophila

45 Ras belongs to the larger family of small GTPbinding switch Small GTP-binding proteins: initiation & elongation factors (protein synthesis). Ras (growth factor signal cascades). Rab (vesicle targeting and fusion). ARF (forming vesicle coatomer coats). Ran (transport of proteins into & out of the nucleus). Rho (regulation of actin cytoskeleton) All GTP-binding proteins differ in conformation depending on whether GDP or GTP is present at their nucleotide binding site. Generally, GTP binding induces the active state.

46 Most GTP-binding proteins depend on helper proteins: GAPs, GTPase Activating Proteins, promote GTP hydrolysis. protein-gtp (active) GDP GEF GAP GTP P i protein-gdp (inactive) A GAP may provide an essential active site residue, while promoting the correct positioning of the glutamine residue of the switch II domain. Frequently a (+) charged arginine residue of a GAP inserts into the active site and helps to stabilize the transition state by interacting with (-) charged O atoms of the terminal phosphate of GTP during hydrolysis.

47 protein-gtp (active) GDP GEF GAP GTP P i protein-gdp (inactive) G a of a heterotrimeric G protein has innate capability for GTP hydrolysis. It has the essential arginine residue normally provided by a GAP for small GTP-binding proteins. However, RGS proteins, which are negative regulators of G protein signaling, stimulate GTP hydrolysis by G a.

48 protein-gtp (active) GDP GEF GAP GTP P i protein-gdp (inactive) GEFs, Guanine Nucleotide Exchange Factors, promote GDP/GTP exchange. The activated receptor (GPCR) serves as GEF for a heterotrimeric G protein.

64 Insulin signalling Two extracellular alpha chains each with an insulin-binding site, linked to two transmembrane beta chains, each with a cytosolic tyrosine kinase domain. Following insulin binding to the alpha chains, the tyrosine kinase domain of each beta chain catalyzes autophosphorylation of tyrosine residues in the adjacent kinase domain. The tyrosine kinase domains also catalyze the phosphorylation of proteins called insulin-receptor substrates (IRSs). Some of the effects of insulin binding are mediated through the second messenger system of PIP3 which regulates several serine-threonine protein kinases. Binding of insulin in some cell types (e.g., muscle) leads to stimulation of phoshatase cascades leading to inactivation of glycogen phoshorylase in the glycogen degradation pathways

65 Insulin formation of PIP3 Binding of insulin to its receptor activates the protein tyrosine kinase activity of the receptor, leading to the phosphorylation of insulin-receptor substrates (IRSs). The phosphorylated IRSs interact with the phosphotidylinositide 3-kinase (PI kinase) at the plasma membrane, where the enzyme catalyzes the phophorylation of PIP2 to PIP3. PIP3 acts as a second messenger, carrying the message from extracellular insulin to certain intracellular protein kinases. Recent research has found that many of the effects of insulin on cells are mediated through PIP2. Whereas the inositol-phospholipid signalling system leads to hydrolysis of PIP2, insulin activates phophorylation of PIP2 to PIP3.

81 GPCR = G-protein coupled Receptors

82 G-protein linked receptors Ligand: Diverse ligands, such as epinephrine Receptor: Integral membrane protein with 7TM (7 transmembrane domains) G-protein: trimeric protein (α, β, γ) attached to the cell membrane by lipid anchors Effectors: Target proteins that show altered activity when they interact with activated G- protein subunits (α, or βγ)

83 G Protein Signal Cascade A hormone (e.g., epinephrine or glucagon) that activates formation of camp or IP3, binds at the cell surface to a receptor with 7 transmembrane α- helices. Rhodopsin was the first member of the family of 7-helix receptors to have its structure determined by X-ray crystallography. Rhodopsin PDB 1F88

84 Cytosolic domains of 7-helix receptors interact with G-proteins (=heterotrimeric GTP-binding protein). A G-protein has 3 subunits, designated α, β, γ. 7-Helix receptors that interact with G-proteins are called GPCR, or G-Protein-Coupled Receptors. Various proteins interact with GPCRs to modulate their activity. Effects of these interactions include: altered ligand affinity receptor dimerization that may enhance or alter activity altered receptor localization Ligand-induced receptor clustering may also regulate receptor function.

85 G-protein linked receptors and G-proteins Receptor G-protein

86 Interaction between receptor and G-protein Once the ligand binds, the activated receptor recruits a G-protein Nucleotide exchange occurs (GTP replaces GDP) and the trimer dissociates into 2 parts: -α subunit -βγ subunit Both parts can regulate downstream pathways

87 Variety of G-proteins Gs are stimulatory Gi/0 are inhibitory Gq act on PLC G12/13 act on ion channels 22 α subunits 5 β subunits 12 γ subunits

88 G s proteins are stimulatory Upon dissociation, a G s protein stimulates an effector enzyme, such as -adenylate cyclase, -phospholipase Cβ or -ion channels (K + or Ca 2+ ) Adenylate cyclase converts ATP to camp Elevated camp stimulates camp-dependent protein kinase (PKA) by inducing the release of inhibitory subunits

89 A G-protein that is part of a pathway that stimulates Adenylate Cyclase is called G s & its α subunit G sα. hormone signal outside GPCR plasma membrane α γ γ + α cytosol AC GDP β β GTP GTP GDP ATP camp + PP i The α subunit of a G-protein (G α ) binds GTP, & can hydrolyze it to GDP + P i. α & γ subunits have covalently attached lipid anchors that bind a G-protein to the plasma membrane cytosolic surface. Adenylate Cyclase (AC) is a transmembrane protein, with cytosolic domains forming the catalytic site.

GPCR plasma membrane α γ γ + α cytosol AC GDP β β GTP GTP GDP ATP camp + PP i The sequence of events by which a hormone activates camp signaling: 1. Initially G α has bound GDP, and α, β, & γ subunits are complexed together.

91 hormone signal outside GPCR plasma membrane α γ γ + α cytosol AC GDP β β GTP GTP GDP ATP camp + PP i 2. Hormone binding to a 7-helix receptor (GPCR) causes a conformational change in the receptor that is transmitted to the G protein. The nucleotide-binding site on G α becomes more accessible to the cytosol, where [GTP] > [GDP]. G α releases GDP & binds GTP (GDP-GTP exchange).

92 hormone signal outside GPCR plasma membrane α γ γ + α cytosol AC GDP β β GTP GTP GDP ATP camp + PP i 3. Substitution of GTP for GDP causes another conformational change in G α. G α -GTP dissociates from the inhibitory βγ complex & can now bind to and activate Adenylate Cyclase.

Protein Kinase A (camp Dependent Protein Kinase) catalyzes phosphorylation of various cellular proteins, altering their activity.

95 GTP hydrolysis ends signaling and induces trimerization

96 The stimulatory G sα, when it binds GTP, activates Adenylate cyclase. An inhibitory G iα, when it binds GTP, inhibits Adenylate cyclase. Different effectors & their receptors induce G iα to exchange GDP for GTP than those that activate G sα. In some cells, the complex of G β,γ that is released when G α binds GTP is itself an effector that binds to and activates other proteins.

100 ADP-Ribosylation Cholera toxin catalyzes covalent modification of G sα. ADPribose is transferred from NAD + to an arginine residue at the GTPase active site of G sα. This ADP-ribosylation prevents G sα from hydrolyzing GTP. Thus G sα becomes permanently activated. Pertussis toxin (whooping cough disease) catalyzes ADPribosylation at a cysteine residue of G iα, making the inhibitory G α incapable of exchanging GDP for GTP. Thus the inhibitory pathway is blocked. ADP-ribosylation is a general mechanism by which activity of many proteins is regulated, in eukaryotes (including mammals) as well as in prokaryotes.

104 VARIETY OF G-PROTEINS: Gα, -β, -γ

105 Structure of G proteins: The nucleotide binding site in G α consists of loops that extend out from the edge of a 6-stranded β-sheet. Three switch domains have been identified, that change position when GTP substitutes for GDP on G α. GTPγS PDB 1GIA Inhibitory G α These domains include residues adjacent to the terminal phosphate of GTP and/or the Mg ++ associated with the two terminal phosphates.

109 Protein Kinase A (camp-dependent Protein Kinase) transfers P i from ATP to OH of a Ser or Thr in a particular 5-amino acid sequence. Protein Kinase A in the resting state is a complex of: 2 catalytic subunits (C) 2 regulatory subunits (R) : R 2 C 2

110 Each regulatory subunit (R) of Protein Kinase A contains a pseudosubstrate sequence, like the substrate domain of a target protein but with Ala substituting for the Ser/Thr. The pseudosubstrate domain of (R), which lacks a hydroxyl that can be phosphorylated, binds to the active site of (C), blocking its activity. When each (R) binds 2 camp, a conformational change causes (R) to release (C). Each catalytic subunit can then catalyze phosphorylation of Ser or Thr on target proteins. R 2 C camp R 2 camp C

111 R 2 C camp R 2 camp C AKAPs, A-Kinase anchoring proteins, bind to the regulatory subunits (R) of Protein Kinase A. AKAPs localize Protein Kinase A to specific regions of a cell. PKIs, Protein Kinase Inhibitors, modulate activity of the catalytic subunit (C).

118 Turn off of the signal: 1. G α hydrolyzes GTP to GDP + P i. (GTPase). The presence of GDP on G α causes it to rebind to the inhibitory βγ complex. Adenylate Cyclase is no longer activated. 2. Phosphodiesterase catalyzes hydrolysis of camp AMP.

119 Turn off of the signal (cont.): 3. Hormone Receptor desensitization occurs. This process varies with the hormone. Some receptors are phosphorylated via G- protein-coupled receptor kinases. The phosphorylated receptor may then bind to a protein arrestin that blocks receptor-gprotein activation & promotes removal of the receptor from the membrane by clathrinmediated endocytosis. 4. Protein Phosphatase catalyzes removal by hydrolysis of phosphates that were attached to proteins via Protein Kinase A.

These are ligands for particular pleckstrin homology (PH) and FYVE protein domains that bind proteins to membrane surfaces.

143 PKB (Protein Kinase B, also called Akt) becomes activated when it is recruited from the cytosol to the plasma membrane surface by binding to products of PI-3 Kinase, e.g., PI-3,4,5-P 3. Other kinases at the cytosolic surface of the plasma membrane then catalyze phosphorylation of PKB, activating it. Activated PKB catalyzes phosphorylation of Ser or Thr residues of many proteins, with diverse effects on metabolism, cell growth, and apoptosis. Downstream metabolic effects of PKB include stimulation of glycogen synthesis, stimulation of glycolysis, and inhibition of gluconeogenesis.

144 Signal cascades may be mediated by complexes of proteins that assemble at the cytosolic surface of the plasma membrane, frequently in areas of distinct lipid composition called lipid rafts. Signal proteins may be recruited into such complexes by insertion of their lipid anchors in the plasma membrane, interaction with membrane-associated scaffolding proteins, or interaction of their pleckstrin homology domains with transiently formed PI derivatives.

146 Summary on Enzyme-linked receptors Enzyme-linked receptors generate variable cellular responses Multiplicity of players (receptors, kinases etc) arise from gene duplication and divergence Recognize the critical role of phosphorylation/ dephosphorylation control as molecular switches Adaptor molecules allow construction of protein signaling cascades with variable outputs
