The Dictyostelium prestalk inducer differentiation-inducing factor-1 (DIF-1) triggers unexpectedly complex global phosphorylation changes.

Sugden C, Urbaniak MD, Araki T, Williams JG - Mol. Biol. Cell (2014)

Bottom Line: The results also provide evidence that the Ca(2+)/calmodulin-dependent phosphatase calcineurin plays a role in DIF-1 signaling to the DimB prestalk transcription factor.This accords with studies that suggest an antagonism between the two inducers and also with the rapid dephosphorylation of the cAMP receptor that we observe in response to DIF-1 and with the known inhibitory effect of DIF-1 on chemotaxis to cAMP.All MS data are available via ProteomeXchange with identifier PXD001555.

Schematic summary of signaling pathways downstream of cAMP and cAR1 during early development, which control chemotaxis and cAMP relay. This depiction of signaling events is not an attempt to summarize all cAMP signaling but is a representation to demonstrate enrichment of DIF-1–regulated sites in cAMP signaling pathways. Proteins components are color coded based on the presence of a DIF-1–regulated phosphorylation site; see key. For simplicity, pathways involved in the regulation of PIP3 are not fully shown.

Figure 4: Schematic summary of signaling pathways downstream of cAMP and cAR1 during early development, which control chemotaxis and cAMP relay. This depiction of signaling events is not an attempt to summarize all cAMP signaling but is a representation to demonstrate enrichment of DIF-1–regulated sites in cAMP signaling pathways. Proteins components are color coded based on the presence of a DIF-1–regulated phosphorylation site; see key. For simplicity, pathways involved in the regulation of PIP3 are not fully shown.

Mentions: Surprisingly, many of the DIF-1–regulated phosphorylation sites lie in cAMP signaling pathways (Figure 4). Extracellular cAMP signals are perceived and transferred into the cell by cAR1. Binding of extracellular cAMP to cAR1 stimulates many signaling events and phosphorylation at multiple residues on its cytoplasmic tail (Hereld et al., 1994). We identify 10 DIF-1–regulated phosphorylation sites on cAR1; eight are the same residues phosphorylated in response to cAMP binding (Figure 5A). Four of the five class I sites (S299, S303, S304, S324, and S325) show a major and consistent dephosphorylation (Figure 5B), contrasting with the phosphorylation that occurs in response to cAMP.
