High glucose‐mediated PICALM and mTORC1 modulate processing of amyloid precursor protein via endosomal abnormalities. CW Chae,Br. J. Pharmacol,2020

Applications: Western Blot
Sample type: Cells
Review: The cells were incubated with mithramycin A (25 nM) for 30 min prior to high glucose treatment (25 mM) for 24 h. PICALM, AP2A1, CHC, and β-actin were subjected to western blot. n = 5 from independent experiments. *p < 0.05 vs. control, #p < 0.05 vs. high glucose.

Target Data

Function Component of the adaptor protein complex 2 (AP-2). Adaptor protein complexes function in protein transport via transport vesicles in different membrane traffic pathways. Adaptor protein complexes are vesicle coat components and appear to be involved in cargo selection and vesicle formation. AP-2 is involved in clathrin-dependent endocytosis in which cargo proteins are incorporated into vesicles surrounded by clathrin (clathrin-coated vesicles, CCVs) which are destined for fusion with the early endosome. The clathrin lattice serves as a mechanical scaffold but is itself unable to bind directly to membrane components. Clathrin-associated adaptor protein (AP) complexes which can bind directly to both the clathrin lattice and to the lipid and protein components of membranes are considered to be the major clathrin adaptors contributing the CCV formation. AP-2 also serves as a cargo receptor to selectively sort the membrane proteins involved in receptor-mediated endocytosis. AP-2 seems to play a role in the recycling of synaptic vesicle membranes from the presynaptic surface. AP-2 recognizes Y-X-X-[FILMV] (Y-X-X-Phi) and [ED]-X-X-X-L-[LI] endocytosis signal motifs within the cytosolic tails of transmembrane cargo molecules. AP-2 may also play a role in maintaining normal post-endocytic trafficking through the ARF6-regulated, non-clathrin pathway. The AP-2 alpha subunit binds polyphosphoinositide-containing lipids, positioning AP-2 on the membrane. The AP-2 alpha subunit acts via its C-terminal appendage domain as a scaffolding platform for endocytic accessory proteins. The AP-2 alpha and AP-2 sigma subunits are thought to contribute to the recognition of the [ED]-X-X-X-L-[LI] motif (By similarity).

  1. Results revealed thirteen novel splice junctions of previously annotated exons. Consecutive nested PCRs led to the determination of the primary structure of seventy-seven novel AP2A1 transcripts, all of which were shown to comprise at least one premature translation termination codon, thus representing nonsense-mediated mRNA decay candidates.

  2. AP-2alpha depletion enhanced apoptosis, demonstrating that disrupting the HIV-1 Nef:AP-2alpha interaction limits Nef-mediated apoptosis. PMID: 28577469
  3. These results lead to a model for the docking of the full AP-2 tetramer to membranes as bound to Nef, such that the cytosolic tail of CD4 is situated to interact with its binding site on Nef. PMID: 24473078
  4. A protein encoded by this locus was found to be differentially expressed in postmortem brains from patients with atypical frontotemporal lobar degeneration. PMID: 22360420
  5. AP2alpha negatively regulates HIV-1 replication in the process of nuclear translocation of viral DNA in the cytoplasm or the perinuclear region. PMID: 18178234
  6. nef usurps AP-2 complexes to dysregulate Ii (invariant chain (Ii)/major histocompatibility complex class II) trafficking and potentially interfere with antigen presentation in the context of MHC-II PMID: 18524831
