ABSTRACT The Golgi apparatus has long been suggested to be important for directing secretion to specific sites on the plasma membrane in response to extracellular signaling events. However, the mechanisms by which signaling events are coordinated with Golgi apparatus function remain poorly understood. Here, we identify a scaffolding function for the Golgi matrix protein GM130 that sheds light on how such signaling events may be regulated. We show that the mammalian Ste20 kinases YSK1 and MST4 target to the Golgi apparatus via the Golgi matrix protein GM130. In addition, GM130 binding activates these kinases by promoting autophosphorylation of a conserved threonine within the T-loop. Interference with YSK1 function perturbs perinuclear Golgi organization, cell migration, and invasion into type I collagen. A biochemical screen identifies 14-3-3zeta as a specific substrate for YSK1 that localizes to the Golgi apparatus, and potentially links YSK1 signaling at the Golgi apparatus with protein transport events, cell adhesion, and polarity complexes important for cell migration.

    ABSTRACT: Intracellular signaling in osteocytes activated by mechanical loading is important for bone formation and remodeling. These signaling events are mediated by small modulators released from Cx43 hemichannels (HC). We have recently shown that integrin α5 senses the mechanical stimulation and induces the opening of Cx43 HC; however, the underlying mechanism is unknown. Here, we show that both Cx43 and integrin α5 interact with 14-3-3θ, and this interaction is required for the opening of Cx43 HC upon mechanical stress. Ablation of 14-3-3θ prevented the interaction between Cx43 and integrin α5, and blocked HC opening. It further decreased the transport of Cx43 and integrin α5 from the Golgi to the plasma membrane. Moreover, mechanical loading promoted the movement of Cx43 to the surface which was associated not only with an increase in 14-3-3θ levels but also its interaction with Cx43 and integrin α5. This stimulatory effect on forward transport by mechanical loading was attenuated in the absence of 14-3-3θ and majority of the Cx43 was accumulated in the Golgi. Disruption of Golgi apparatus by brefeldin A reduced the association of Cx43 and integrin α5 with 14-3-3θ, further suggesting that the interaction is likely to occur in the Golgi. Together, these results define a novel, scaffolding role of 14-3-3θ in assisting the delivery of Cx43 and integrin α5 to the plasma membrane for the formation of mechanosensitive HC in osteocytes.

    • "continues for several hours after the Golgi has been disassembled by BFA (H.D., M.M., J.S., unpublished data). Golgi-independent trafficking via the PCMS is also likely to play a role in the formation of the primary cilium, as evidenced by the localization of a GM130- and ceramide-enriched membrane compartment at the base of this structure [62]. To understand Golgi-independent trafficking, a major challenge is to define the transport machineries that operate in bidirectional transfer of molecules across the PCMS. "

    ABSTRACT: The intermediate compartment (IC) between the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and the Golgi apparatus appears to constitute an autonomous organelle composed of spatially and functionally distinct, but interconnected, vacuolar and tubular subdomains. In mammalian cells the IC network is stably anchored at the cell center, communicating directly with the endocytic pathway via a pericentrosomal membrane system (PCMS). This finding suggests that the secretory pathway divides at the level of the IC, which functions as a sorting station both in Golgi-dependent and -independent trafficking. The tubular subdomain of the IC is capable of expansion in accordance with its proposed biosynthetic functions such as cholesterol synthesis.

    • "Plasmids: GST-Mo25, Myc-Lkb1, and Flag-Strad have been described previously (Baas et al., 2004). Mst4 was a kind gift from Francis Barr (Preisinger et al., 2004), pRetrosuper was from Dr. R. Bernards (Brummelkamp et al., 2004), and WT/T567A Ezrin was from Dr. M. Arpin (Fievet et al., 2004). Mst4 mutants were generated by PCR and cloned in a Myc-tagged pCDNA3.1 vector and in GST-6P-1 (27-4597-01; Amersham Biosciences) using the BamHI and XbaI restriction sites. "

    ABSTRACT: The human Lkb1 kinase, encoded by the ortholog of the invertebrate Par4 polarity gene, is mutated in Peutz-Jeghers cancer syndrome. Lkb1 activity requires complex formation with the pseudokinase Strad and the adaptor protein Mo25. The complex can induce complete polarization in a single isolated intestinal epithelial cell. We describe an interaction between Mo25alpha and a human serine/threonine kinase termed Mst4. A homologous interaction occurs in the yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe in the control of polar tip growth. Human Mst4 translocates from the Golgi to the subapical membrane compartment upon activation of Lkb1. Inhibition of Mst4 activity inhibits Lkb1-induced brush border formation, whereas other aspects of polarity such as the formation of lateral junctions remain unaffected. As an essential event in brush border formation, Mst4 phosphorylates the regulatory T567 residue of Ezrin. These data define a brush border induction pathway downstream of the Lkb1/Strad/Mo25 polarization complex, yet separate from other polarity events.
