(英) Protein kinase A-regulated membrane trafficking of a green fluorescent protein-aquaporin 5 chimera in MDCK cells
(英) The green fluorescent protein (GFP) of the jellyfish, Aeqorea victoria, was used as an autofluorescent tag to track the trafficking of aquaporin 5 (AQP5), an exocrine gland-type water channel. Two groups of chimeric proteins were constructed; one in which GFP was fused to the amino-terminus of AQP5 (GFP-AQP5) and the other, in which it was fused to the carboxyl terminus of it (AQP5-GFP). In each group, 2 chimeras were produced, a wild-type AQP5 with its normal sequence and a mutant AQP5 having a mutated amino acid at 259, i.e., GFP-AQP5-T259A and AQP5-GFP-T259A. They were used to transfect Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells. The GFP-AQP5 chimera was localized in the intracellular vesicles, which trafficked to the plasma membrane in response to N(6), 2'-O-dibutyryladenosine 3', 5'-cyclic monophosphate (dbcAMP). Membrane trafficking was inhibited by N-[2-(p-bromocinnamylamino)ethyl]-5-isoquimolinesulfonamide (H-89) but not by palmitoyl-dl-carnitine chloride (PCC). In contrast, the AQP5-GFP chimera expressed in MDCK cells was localized constitutively on the plasma membrane. The cellular localization of the latter chimera was not affected by stimulation with dbcAMP in the presence or absence of H-89 or PCC. Replacement of Thr-259 with Ala-259 did not affect the dbcAMP-induced translocation of the chimeric protein, suggesting that phosphorylation of Thr-259 was not necessary for AQP5 trafficking under the present experimental conditions. Thus, the GFP-AQP5 chimera will be a useful tool to study AQP5 trafficking in vitro, whereas the constitutive membrane localization of the AQP5-GFP chimera suggests the importance of the carboxyl terminus of the AQP5 protein for its sorting, whether it is translocated to intracellular vesicles or to the plasma membrane.
