PRKCA-binding protein - Q9NRD5 (PICK1_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Probable adapter protein that bind to and organize the subcellular localization of a variety of membrane proteins containing some PDZ recognition sequence. Involved in the clustering of various receptors, possibly by acting at the receptor internalization level. Plays a role in synaptic plasticity by regulating the trafficking and internalization of AMPA receptors. May be regulated upon PRKCA activation. May regulate ASIC1/ASIC3 channel. Regulates actin polymerization by inhibiting the actin-nucleating activity of the Arp2/3 complex; the function is competetive with nucleation promoting factors and is linked to neuronal morphology regulation and AMPA receptor (AMPAR) endocytosis. Via interaction with the Arp2/3 complex involved in regulation of synaptic plasicity of excitatory synapses and required for spine shrinkage during long-term depression (LTD). Involved in regulation of astrocyte morphology, antagonistic to Arp2/3 complex activator WASL/N-WASP function. UniProt

Subunit Structure
Monomer and homodimer. Interacts with CXADR. Interacts presynaptically with the glutamate receptors GRIA2, GRIA3, GRIK3, isoform 3 of GRIA4, isoform A of GRM4, GRM7 and GRM8; with NAPA and NAPB; and with BTG2. The interaction with NAPA and NAPB disrupts the interaction with GRIA2, conducting to the internalization of GRIA2. Interacts with PRKCA; with the amine transporters SLC6A2 and SLC6A3; with the channels ASIC1 and ASIC2; with the GTP-binding proteins ARF1 and ARF3; with the ephrin receptor tyrosine kinases EPHA7, EPHB1 and EPHB2; with ERBB2 and through its PDZ domain with the C-terminal tail of PRLHR. Interacts with UNC5A. Interacts (via AH domain) with NCS1/FREQ; in a calcium-dependent manner. Interacts with F-actin and associates with the ARP2/3 complex. Interacts (via PDZ domain) with ARF1 (activated); the interaction blocks Arp2/3 complex inhibition. UniProt
The unoccupied PDZ domain is probably involved in allosteric modulation by forming an intramolecular bridge with the AH domain leading to a 'closed' formation. Binding of a PDZ ligand, such as GRIA2, allows enhanced interactions with F-actin and the Arp2/3 complex thus enhanced inhibition of actin polymerization (By similarity). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
