Identification of phostensin in association with Eps 15 homology domain-containing protein 1 (EHD1) and EHD4
Phostensin (PTS) encoded by KIAA1949 is a protein phosphatase 1 (PP1)-binding protein. In order to explore the cellular functions of PTS, we have searched PTS-binding proteins by using coimmunoprecipitation in combination with shotgun proteomics. Here, we report two novel PTSbinding proteins, Eps 15 homology domain-containing protein 1 (EHD1) and EHD4. PTS associated with EHD proteins was also observed in GST pull-down assays. Immunofluorescence microscopy demonstrated that the complex was co-localized at the endocytic vesicles. EHD proteins have been known to play a critical role in regulation of endocytic transport. Overexpression of PTS-beta can attenuate the endocytic trafficking of transferrin. (C) 2020 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
