Myocyte enhancer factor (MEF2) are MADS box transcription factors that play important roles in the regulation of myogenesis and morphogenesis of muscle cells. MEF2 proteins are activated by mechanical overload in the heart. In this study, we found the interaction of MEF2C with the regulatory protein Ki-1/57 using yeast two-hybrid system. This interaction was confirmed by GST-pull down assay in vitro and by co-immunoprecipitation in vivo. This interaction is also dependent on pressure overload in the heart. Co-imunoprecipitation assay with anti-MEF2 and anti-Ki-1/57 antibodies demonstrated a basal association between these proteins in the left ventricles of control rats. Pressure overload caused a reduction in this association. Ki-1/57 co-localizes with MEF2 in the nucleus of myocytes of control rats. However, after submitting the animals to pressure overload Ki-1/57 leaves the nucleus thereby decreasing this co-localization. Ki-1/57 also exerts an inhibitory effect upon MEF2C DNA binding activity. These results suggest that Ki-1/57 is a new interacting partner of MEF2 protein and may be involved in the regulation of MEF2 at the onset of hypertrophy.5792615-22

Mapping eIF5A binding sites for Dys1 and Lia1: In vivo evidence for regulation of eIF5A hypusination Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP) (2003-12-18)The evolutionarily conserved factor eIF5A is the only protein known to undergo hypusination, a unique posttranslational modification triggered by deoxyhypusine synthase (Dys1). Although eIF5A is essential for cell viability, ...
