AbstractNuclear factor erythroid-2-related factor 1 (NRF1) and NRF2 are essential for maintaining redox homeostasis and coordinating cellular stress responses. They are highly homologous transcription factors that regulate the expression of genes bearing antioxidant-response elements (AREs). Genetic ablation of NRF1 or NRF2 results in vastly different phenotypic outcomes, implying that they play different roles and may be differentially regulated. Kelch-like ECH-associated protein 1 (KEAP1) is the main negative regulator of NRF2 and mediates ubiquitylation and degradation of NRF2 through its NRF2-ECH homology-like domain 2 (Neh2). Here, we report that KEAP1 binds to the Neh2-like (Neh2L) domain of NRF1 and stabilizes it. Consistently, NRF1 is more stable in KEAP1(+/+) than in KEAP1(-/-) isogenic cell lines, whereas NRF2 is dramatically stabilized in KEAP1(-/-) cells. Replacing NRF1's Neh2L domain with NRF2's Neh2 domain renders NRF1 sensitive to KEAP1-mediated degradation, indicating that the amino acids between the DLG and ETGE motifs, not just the motifs themselves, are essential for KEAP1-mediated degradation. Systematic site-directed mutagenesis identified the core amino acid residues required for KEAP1-mediated degradation and further indicated that the DLG and ETGE motifs with correct spacing are insufficient as a KEAP1 degron. Our results offer critical insights into our understanding of the differential regulation of NRF1 and NRF2 by KEAP1 and their different physiological roles.

Methods for the Detection of Protein-Nucleic Acid and Protein-Protein InteractionsStains, Cliff (The University of Arizona., 2008)We describe the first general approach for the DNA templated reassembly of proteins, which we term SEquence-Enabled Reassembly or SEER. SEER makes use of dissected signaling domains which are each attached to separate, sequence specific DNA-binding proteins. Described herein is an embodiment of SEER in which DNA catalyzes the reassembly of the green fluorescent protein which leads to a direct fluorescence readout of the corresponding DNA sequence. This strategy has also been extended to the first direct method for the site specific detection of DNA methylation. This mCpG-SEER system is capable of discriminating between methylated versus nonmethylated DNA with a 40-fold increase in fluorescence signal.In a separate undertaking we tested the efficiency of disulfide bond formation within the context of the ribosome display in vitro selection methodology. We established conditions for the enrichment of a cyclic peptide, which is specific for Neutravidin, by 2 x 10^6-fold. Using the knowledge gained from the above experiments, we combined the rapid protein expression and folding benefits of cell-free translation systems with a sensitive split-luciferase reassembly assay to yield the most rapid method to date for the detection of protein-nucleic acid and protein-protein interactions. Furthermore, we have shown that these split-luciferase cell-free reassembly systems can be compartmentalized, allowing for future molecular evolution studies.Lastly, we have applied this rapid cell-free split-luciferase assay system to the direct detection of clinically relevant proteins. We have engineered a system for the rapid characterization of HIV-1 clades utilizing single-chain antibody specificities. We also demonstrate that this platform can be used to determine the relative amounts of HER2 expression in human breast cancer cells, using a homogeneous assay format in which cells and reagents are mixed and luminescence is monitored directly.We envision that the assay platforms described herein will find applications in the rapid detection of nucleic acid sequences, protein identities, and relative protein abundances in the laboratory and clinic.
Protein stickiness, rather than number of functional protein-protein interactions, predicts expression noise and plasticity in yeastBrettner, Leandra M.; Masel, Joanna; Present address: Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona, 1041 E Lowell St, Tucson, AZ, 85721, USA; Present address: Bioengineering, University of Washington, 3720 15th Ave NE, Seattle, WA, 98195, USA (BioMed Central, 2012)BACKGROUND:A hub protein is one that interacts with many functional partners. The annotation of hub proteins, or more generally the protein-protein interaction "degree" of each gene, requires quality genome-wide data. Data obtained using yeast two-hybrid methods contain many false positive interactions between proteins that rarely encounter each other in living cells, and such data have fallen out of favor.RESULTS:We find that protein "stickiness", measured as network degree in ostensibly low quality yeast two-hybrid data, is a more predictive genomic metric than the number of functional protein-protein interactions, as assessed by supposedly higher quality high throughput affinity capture mass spectrometry data. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a protein's high stickiness, but not its high number of functional interactions, predicts low stochastic noise in gene expression, low plasticity of gene expression across different environments, and high probability of forming a homo-oligomer. Our results are robust to a multiple regression analysis correcting for other known predictors including protein abundance, presence of a TATA box and whether a gene is essential. Once the higher stickiness of homo-oligomers is controlled for, we find that homo-oligomers have noisier and more plastic gene expression than other proteins, consistent with a role for homo-oligomerization in mediating robustness.CONCLUSIONS:Our work validates use of the number of yeast two-hybrid interactions as a metric for protein stickiness. Sticky proteins exhibit low stochastic noise in gene expression, and low plasticity in expression across different environments.
Contribution of Heat Shock Protein 27 and Retinol Binding Protein to 11-Deoxy-16, 16-Dimethyl Prostaglandin E2 Mediated CytoprotectionLord-Garcia, Jean Lanette (The University of Arizona., 2008)11-Deoxy-16,16-dimethyl prostaglandin E2 (DDM-PGE2) protects renal proximal tubular epithelial cells (LLC-PK1) against oncotic cell death induced by 2,3,5-tris(glutathione-S-yl)hydroquinone (TGHQ). Cytoprotection is associated with the up-regulation of several proteins including actin, heat shock protein 27 (Hsp27) and retinol binding protein (RBP). This dissertation reveals the induction and phosphorylation of Hsp27 by TGHQ treatment and DDM-PGE2 pretreatment. Treatment with TGHQ results in a dose-dependent disruption of the actin cytoskeleton that correlates with a decrease in cell viability, increased generation of reactive oxygen species, and the induction of Hsp27 nuclear translocation and co-localization with actin. Moreover, DDM-PGE2 pretreatment, but not co-treatment, prevents both TGHQ generation of ROS and actin cytoskeletal damage. DDM-PGE2 results in the enhanced induction and phosphorylation of nuclear Hsp27 that likely contributes to the inhibition of early effects of TGHQ induced ROS generation on the actin cytoskeleton. In correlation, we identify site specific phosphorylation of Hsp27 (p-Hsp27) at human Ser82 that negatively regulates cell survival, and p-Hsp27 at Ser15 associated with cell survival. We provide evidence that the TP receptor dependent increase in RBP expression is based on the ability of DDM-PGE2 to recruit the retinoid signaling pathway through activation of the RAR/RXR nuclear receptor heterodimers. All-trans retinoic acid (AtRA) pretreatment recapitulates the protective effects of DDM-PGE2 through a mechanism independent of TP receptor activation and the cytoprotective effects of AtRA were also investigated using an in vivo model. Finally, the ability of DDM-PGE2 to increase the cells antioxidant response, important in its cytoprotection against ROS is described. Taken together, these studies contribute to the mechanism of protection and will give insight into the affects of novel therapeutics in the modulation of chemical induced nephrotoxicity.
