Ouabain induces endocytosis of plasmalemmal Na/K-ATPase in LLC-PK1 cells by a clathrin-dependent mechanism. Background. We have demonstrated that ouabain causes dose- and time-dependent decreases in 86Rb uptake in porcine proximal tubular (LLC-PK1) cells. The present study addresses the molecular mechanisms involved in this process. Methods. Studies were performed with cultured LLC-PK1 and Src family kinase deficient (SYF) cells. Results. We found that 50 nmol/L ouabain applied to the basal, but not apical, aspect for 12 hours caused decreases in the plasmalemmal Na/K-ATPase. This loss of plasmalemmal Na/K-ATPase reverses completely within 12 to 24 hours after removal of ouabain. Ouabain also increased the Na/K-ATPase content in both early and late endosomes, activated phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI(3)K), and also caused a translocation of some Na/K-ATPase to the nucleus. Immunofluorescence demonstrated that the Na/K-ATPase colocalized with clathrin both before and after exposure to ouabain, and immunoprecipitation experiments confirmed that ouabain stimulated interactions among the Na/K-ATPase, adaptor protein-2 (AP-2), and clathrin. Potassium (K) depletion, chlorpromazine, or PI(3)K inhibition all significantly attenuated this ouabain-induced endocytosis. Inhibition of the ouabain-activated signaling process through Src by 4-Amino-5-(4-chlorophenyl)-7-( t-butyl)pyrazolo[3,4- d]pyrimidine (PP2) significantly attenuated ouabain-induced endocytosis. Moreover, experiments performed in SYF cells demonstrated that ouabain induced increases in the endocytosis of the Na/K-ATPase when Src was reconstituted (SYF+), but not in the Src-deficient (SYF−) cells. Conclusion. These data demonstrate that ouabain stimulates a clathrin-dependent endocytosis pathway that translocates the Na/K-ATPase to intracellular compartments, thus suggesting a potential role of endocytosis in ouabain-induced signal transduction as well as proximal tubule sodium handling.

    Upon block of endocytosis, the a-factor transporter Ste6 accumulates in a ubiquitinated form at the plasma membrane. Here we show that the linker region, which connects the two homologous halves of Ste6, contains a signal which mediates ubiquitination and fast turnover of Ste6. This signal was...

    Recent studies have established that factor VIIa (FVIIa) binds to the endothelial cell protein C receptor (EPCR). FVIIa binding to EPCR may promote the endocytosis of this receptor/ligand complex. Rab GTPases are known to play a crucial role in the endocytic and exocytic pathways of receptors or...
