A dibasic motif involved in parathyroid hormone-induced down-regulation of the type IIa NaPi cotransporter.


Karim-Jimenez, Z; Hernando, N; Biber, J; Murer, H (2000). A dibasic motif involved in parathyroid hormone-induced down-regulation of the type IIa NaPi cotransporter. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS), 97(23):12896-12901.

Abstract

Type II NaPi cotransporters are expressed in the apical membrane of P(i)-(re)absorbing epithelia: the type IIa in renal proximal tubule and the type IIb in small intestine. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) leads to a retrieval from the apical membrane of the type IIa NaPi cotransporter. The type IIa cotransporter is also expressed in opossum kidney (OK) cells, and its expression is under the control of PTH. In the present study, we identified the molecular "domains" involved in the PTH-induced retrieval of the type IIa NaPi cotransporter. Wild-type mouse type IIa (mIIa) and type IIb (mIIb) as well as several mIIa-mIIb chimeras and site-directed mutants were fused to the enhanced green fluorescent protein and transfected into OK cells. We found that mIIa but not mIIb was internalized and degraded after incubation with 1-34 (or 3-34) PTH. Using chimeras, we found that the N and C termini were not required in this effect, whereas a "domain" located between residues 216 and 658 seemed to be necessary. This region contains two putative intracellular loops with highly conserved sequences between mIIa and mIIb; in the last intracellular loop, two charged amino acids of type IIa (K(503)R(504)) are replaced by uncharged residues in type IIb (N(520)I(521)). We generated two mutants in which these residues were interchanged: mIIaNI and mIIbKR. Similarly to mIIa, the mIIbKR mutant was endocytosed in response to 1-34 PTH; in contrast, mIIaNI behaved as mIIb and was not internalized. In conclusion, a dibasic amino acid motif (K(503)R(504)) located in the last intracellular loop of the type IIa NaPi cotransporter is essential for its PTH-induced retrieval.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
