14-3-3s regulate fructose-2,6-bisphosphate levels by binding to PKB-phosphorylated cardiac fructose-2,6-bisphosphate kinase/phosphatase.

The cardiac isoform of 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase/ fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase (PFK-2), regulator of the glycolysis-stimulating fructose-2,6-bisphosphate, was among human HeLa cell proteins that were eluted from a 14-3-3 affinity column using the phosphopeptide ARAApSAPA. Tryptic mass fingerprinting and phospho-specific antibodies showed that Ser466 and Ser483 of 14-3-3-affinity-purified PFK-2 were phosphorylated. 14-3-3 binding was abolished by selectively dephosphorylating Ser483, and 14-3-3 binding was restored when both Ser466 and Ser483 were phosphorylated with PKB, but not when Ser466 alone was phosphorylated by AMPK. Furthermore, the phosphopeptide RNYpS(483)VGS blocked binding of PFK-2 to 14-3-3s. These data indicate that 14-3-3s bind to phosphorylated Ser483. When HeLa cells expressing HA-tagged PFK-2 were co-transfected with active PKB or stimulated with IGF-1, HA-PFK-2 was phosphorylated and bound to 14-3-3s. The response to IGF-1 was abolished by PI 3-kinase inhibitors. In addition, IGF-1 promoted the binding of endogenous PFK-2 to 14-3-3s. When cells were transduced with penetratin-linked AARAApSAPA, we found that this reagent bound specifically to 14-3-3s, blocked the IGF-1-induced binding of HA-PFK-2 to 14-3-3s, and completely inhibited the IGF-1-induced increase in cellular fructose-2,6-bisphosphate. These findings suggest that PKB-dependent binding of 14-3-3s to phospho-Ser483 of cardiac PFK-2 mediates the stimulation of glycolysis by growth factor.
