ABSTRACT Cell-substrate contacts, called focal adhesions (FAs), are dynamic in rapidly moving cells. We show that supervillin (SV)--a peripheral membrane protein that binds myosin II and F-actin in such cells--negatively regulates stress fibers, FAs, and cell-substrate adhesion. The major FA regulatory sequence within SV (SV342-571) binds to the LIM domains of two proteins in the zyxin family, thyroid receptor-interacting protein 6 (TRIP6) and lipoma-preferred partner (LPP), but not to zyxin itself. SV and TRIP6 colocalize within large FAs, where TRIP6 may help recruit SV. RNAi-mediated decreases in either protein increase cell adhesion to fibronectin. TRIP6 partially rescues SV effects on stress fibers and FAs, apparently by mislocating SV away from FAs. Thus, SV interactions with TRIP6 at FAs promote loss of FA structure and function. SV and TRIP6 binding partners suggest several specific mechanisms through which the SV-TRIP6 interaction may regulate FA maturation and/or disassembly.

    ABSTRACT: Loss of gamma-sarcoglycan (γ-SG) induces muscle degeneration and signaling defects in response to mechanical load, and its absence is common to both Duchenne and limb girdle muscular dystrophies. Growing evidence suggests that aberrant signaling contributes to the disease pathology; however, the mechanisms of γ-SG-mediated mechanical signaling are poorly understood. To uncover γ-SG signaling pathway components, we performed yeast two-hybrid screens, and identified the muscle-specific protein archvillin as a γ-SG and dystrophin interacting protein. Archvillin protein and message levels were significantly upregulated at the sarcolemma of murine γ-SG-null (gsg(-/-)) muscle, but delocalized in dystrophin deficient mdx muscle. Similar elevation of archvillin protein was observed in human quadriceps muscle lacking γ-SG. Reintroduction of γ-SG in gsg(-/-) muscle by rAAV injection restored archvillin levels to that of control C57 muscle. In situ eccentric contraction of tibialis anterior (TA) muscles from C57 mice caused ERK1/2 phosphorylation, nuclear activation of P-ERK1/2, and stimulus-dependent archvillin association with P-ERK1/2. In contrast, TA muscles from gsg(-/-) and mdx mice exhibited heightened P-ERK1/2 and increased nuclear P-ERK1/2 localization following eccentric contractions, but the archvillin-P-ERK1/2 association was completely ablated. These results position archvillin as a mechanically sensitive component of the dystrophin complex, and demonstrate that signaling defects caused by loss of γ-SG occur both at the sarcolemma and in the nucleus. © The Author 2015.

    ABSTRACT: Background: Postnatal neurogenesis persists throughout life in the subventricular zone (SVZ)-olfactory bulb pathway in mammals. Extrinsic or intrinsic factors have been revealed to regulate neural stem cell (NSC) properties and neurogenesis. Thyroid hormone receptor interacting protein 6 (TRIP6) belongs to zyxin family of LIM proteins, which have been shown to interact with various proteins to mediate cellular functions. However, the role of TRIP6 in NSCs is still unknown.Results: By performing double immunofluorescence staining, we found that TRIP6 was expressed by Sox2-positive NSCs in embryonic and postnatal mouse forebrains. To study the function of TRIP6 in NSCs, we performed overexpression and knockdown experiments with neurospheres derived from postnatal day 7 SVZ. We found that TRIP6 was necessary and sufficient for self-renewal and proliferation of NSCs, but inhibited their differentiation. To further investigate the mechanism of TRIP6 in NSCs, we performed Luciferase reporter assay and found that TRIP6 activated Notch signaling, a pathway required for NSC self-renewal.Conclusions: Our data suggest that TRIP6 regulates NSC maintenance and it may be a new marker for NSCs.

    ABSTRACT: Thyroid receptor-interacting protein 6 (Trip6), a multifunctional protein belonging to the zyxin family of LIM proteins, is involved in various physiological and pathological processes, including cell migration and tumorigenesis. However, the role of Trip6 in neurons remains unknown. Here, we show that Trip6 is expressed in mouse hippocampal neurons and promotes dendritic morphogenesis. Through interaction with the glutamate receptor-interacting protein 1 (GRIP1) and myosin VI, Trip6 is crucial for the total dendritic length and the number of primary dendrites in cultured hippocampal neurons. Trip6 depletion reduces F-actin content and impairs dendritic morphology, and this phenocopies GRIP1 or myosin VI knockdown. Furthermore, phosphorylation of GRIP1(956T) by AKT1 inhibits the interaction between GRIP1 and myosin VI, but facilitates GRIP1 binding to 14-3-3 protein, which is required for regulating F-actin organization and dendritic morphogenesis. Thus, the Trip6-GRIP1-myosin VI interaction and its regulation on F-actin network play a significant role in dendritic morphogenesis. Copyright © 2015 the authors 0270-6474/15/352559-13$15.00/0.
