Regulation of ADL6 activity by its associated molecular network.

Plant dynamin-like proteins consist of a group of high molecular weight GTPase with diverse structural arrangements and cellular localizations. In addition, unlike animal dynamins, there was no evidence for the involvement of any plant dynamin-like protein in clathrin-mediated vesicle trafficking. In this study we demonstrate that ADL6 (Arabidopsis dynamin-like protein 6), due to its domain arrangement, behaves similarly to the animal dynamins. The association of ADL6 with clathrin-coated vesicles was demonstrated by co-fractionation and immunocytochemical studies. ADL6 also interacted via its C-terminus with gamma-adaptin, an adaptor protein of clathrin-coated vesicles. Our results suggest that ADL6 participates in clathrin-mediated vesicle trafficking originating from the Golgi. In addition, our studies demonstrate that ADL6 intrinsic GTPase activity is regulated by its association with acidic phospholipids and an SH3 (Src homology 3)-containing protein.[1]
