cAMP signaling to the nucleus is typically regarded to be the prerogative of PKA, which acts on transcription variables these as cAMP reaction element-binding protein. Here, we recognize a cAMP-managed signaling pathway that is transduced by EPAC signaling to nuclear-localized Rap2. This prospects to the exit of activated DNA-PK from the selleck chemical nucleus where it phosphorylates the cell survival kinase, PKB/Akt at Ser-473. Conversely, cAMP utilizes its classic effector, PKA, to confer inhibitory regulation on both EPAC-stimulated nuclear exit and activation of DNA-PK. Thus, cAMP exerts dual handle on the nuclear/cytoplasmic trafficking of DNA-PK. In this kind of a process, the relative signal energy directed by the two intersecting arms of EPAC and PKA is poised to affect the distribution of DNA-PK in between the nuclear and cytoplasmic compartments. This is indicated from the
selleck variances in DNA-PK nuclear/cytoplasmic distribution observed in the assortment of cell varieties researched here. In HEK-B2 cells, DNA-PK is obviously localized predominantly in the nucleus with EPAC-mediated cytoplasmic accumulation only staying attenuated upon activation of the relevant pool of PKA at supramaximal cAMP amounts. In distinction, in HeLa cells, the resting stage of PKA action evidently suffices to ablate any result of EPAC agonist to cause nuclear DNA-PK exit, which is only obvious subsequent to PKA inhibition. These knowledge propose that the threshold for activation by EPAC and PKA can be altered on a mobile sort-distinct foundation. It is now effectively appreciated that cAMP signaling is
selleckchem compartmentalized in cells with intracellular gradients of cAMP staying produced by spatially constrained PDE populations of which users of the PDE4 family members invariably supply a important function. One implies of gating the threshold for activation of EPAC and PKA on this method is to control their entry to cAMP by PDE-mediated degradation. The expression sample and concentrating on of PDE isoforms range on a cell kind-particular foundation to tailor cAMP signaling.
