ABSTRACT
We demonstrated previously that calreticulin (CRT) interacts with the lumenal COOH-terminal sequence of sarco endoplasmic reticulum (ER) calcium ATPase (SERCA) 2b to inhibit Ca2+ oscillations. Work from other laboratories demonstrated that CRT also interacts with the ER oxidoreductase, ER protein 57 (also known as ER-60, GRP58; ERp57) during folding of nascent glycoproteins. In this paper, we demonstrate that ERp57 overexpression reduces the frequency of Ca2+ oscillations enhanced by SERCA 2b. In contrast, overexpression of SERCA 2b mutants defective in cysteines located in intralumenal loop 4 (L4) increase Ca2+ oscillation frequency. In vitro, we demonstrate a Ca2+-dependent and -specific interaction between ERp57 and L4. Interestingly, ERp57 does not affect the activity of SERCA 2a or SERCA 2b mutants lacking the CRT binding site. Overexpression of CRT domains that disrupt the interaction of CRT with ERp57 behave as dominant negatives in the Ca2+ oscillation assay. Our results suggest that ERp57 modulates the redox state of ER facing thiols in SERCA 2b in a Ca2+-dependent manner, providing dynamic control of ER Ca2+ homeostasis.

Dominant negative constructs increase the frequency of Ca2+ oscillations enhanced by SERCA 2b, but not SERCA 2a. (A) Confocal images of Ca2+ oscillations in Xenopus oocytes overexpressing SERCA 2b (n = 22); or coexpressing SERCA 2b with L4 (n = 22); CRT (n= 22); CRT-NC (n = 21); CRT-N (n = 21); and CRT-P (n = 21) are shown. Two independent experiments with 10–11 oocytes per group were performed. (B) Histogram plots t1/2 of individual waves. Asterisks indicate statistically significant difference (P < 0.05, t test) between L4, CRT, CRT-NC, CRT-N, and CRT-P with respect to the SERCA 2b (S2b) overexpression. (C) Histogram shows the result of a similar experiment performed for SERCA 2a. Confocal images of Ca2+ oscillations in oocytes overexpressing SERCA 2a (n = 21) or coexpressing SERCA 2a with L4 (n = 20); CRT (n = 20); CRT-N (n = 20); CRT-P (n = 20); and CRT-NC (n = 20) are not depicted. Note that on the same y-axis scale as in experiment in B, none of the tested constructs display a significant difference with respect to SERCA 2a (labeled S2a). Bar, 100 μm.

Mentions: To determine the specificity of these dominant negative constructs for SERCA 2b, we also coexpressed them with either SERCA 2a or SERCA 2b. Oocytes coexpressing L4, CRT-NC, CRT-N, or CRT-P with SERCA 2b exhibited significantly shorter t1/2 values than SERCA 2b overexpressing oocytes, consistent with our observations presented in the previous paragraph. Note that control oocytes coexpressing CRT with SERCA 2b exhibited the longest t1/2 values (lowest frequency of Ca2+ oscillations; Camacho and Lechleiter, 1995; Fig. 9, A and B). In agreement with the results reported in Fig. 7, we found that Ca2+ oscillations enhanced by SERCA 2a were not affected by coexpression with these constructs (Fig. 9 C). Together, these data support our model that CRT recruits ERp57 to the lumenal L4 in SERCA 2b, modulating pump activity to maintain ER Ca2+ homeostasis (Fig. 10).
