High impact information on AAK1

  • WT AAK1 overexpression selectively blocks transferrin (Tfn) receptor and LRP endocytosis [1].
  • Here, we examined the effects of adenoviral-mediated overexpression of WT AAK1, kinase-dead, and truncation mutants in HeLa cells, and show that AAK1 also regulates AP-2 function in vivo [1].
  • Identification of an adaptor-associated kinase, AAK1, as a regulator of clathrin-mediated endocytosis [2].
  • In neuronal cells, AAK1 is enriched at presynaptic terminals, whereas in nonneuronal cells it colocalizes with clathrin and AP2 in clathrin-coated pits and at the leading edge of migrating cells [2].
  • We also found that HEK293 cells that overexpressed AAK1, a member of the human Ark/Prk family, were Adriamycin resistant [3].

Associations of AAK1 with chemical compounds

  • In vitro kinase assays reveal little difference between AAK1 isoforms in their basal or clathrin-stimulated kinase activity toward the AP-2 micro2 subunit [4].
