Platelet-activating factor-induced clathrin-mediated endocytosis requires beta-arrestin-1 recruitment and activation of the p38 MAPK signalosome at the plasma membrane for actin bundle formation.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16709866

Clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) is a common pathway used by G protein-linked receptors to transduce extracellular signals. We hypothesize that platelet-activating factor (PAF) receptor (PAFR) ligation requires CME and causes engagement of beta-arrestin-1 and recruitment of a p38 MAPK signalosome that elicits distinct actin rearrangement at the receptor before endosomal scission. Polymorphonuclear neutrophils were stimulated with buffer or 2 microM PAF (1 min), and whole cell lysates or subcellular fractions were immunoprecipitated or slides prepared for colocalization and fluorescent resonance energy transfer analysis. In select experiments, beta-arrestin-1 or dynamin-2 were neutralized by intracellular introduction of specific Abs. PAFR ligation caused 1) coprecipitation of the PAFR and clathrin with beta-arrestin-1, 2) fluorescent resonance energy transfer-positive interactions among the PAFR, beta-arrestin-1, and clathrin, 3) recruitment and activation of the apoptosis signal-regulating kinase-1/MAPK kinase-3/p38 MAPK (ASK1/MKK3/p38 MAPK) signalosome, 4) cell polarization, and 5) distinct actin bundle formation at the PAFR. Neutralization of beta-arrestin-1 inhibited all of these cellular events, including PAFR internalization; conversely, dynamin-2 inhibition only affected receptor internalization. Selective p38 MAPK inhibition globally abrogated actin rearrangement; however, inhibition of MAPK-activated protein kinase-2 and its downstream kinase leukocyte-specific protein-1 inhibited only actin bundle formation and PAFR internalization. In addition, ASK1/MKK3/p38 MAPK signalosome assembly appears to occur in a novel manner such that the ASK1/p38 MAPK heterodimer is recruited to a beta-arrestin-1 bound MKK3. In polymorphonuclear neutrophils, leukocyte-specific protein-1 may play a role similar to fascin for actin bundle formation. We conclude that PAF signaling requires CME, beta-arrestin-1 recruitment of a p38 MAPK signalosome, and specific actin bundle formation at the PAFR for transduction before endosomal scission.
