Aberrant activation of this pathway has been implicated in multiple human cancers and some developmental disorders. KSR1 functions as an essential scaffold that binds the individual components of the cascade and coordinates their assembly into multiprotein signaling platforms. The mechanism of KSR1 regulation is highly complex and not completely understood. In this study, we identified Tyr728 as a novel regulatory phosphorylation site in KSR1. We show that Tyr728 is phosphorylated by LCK, uncovering an additional and unexpected link between Src kinases and MAPK signaling. To understand how phosphorylation of Tyr728 may regulate the role of KSR1 in signal transduction, we integrated structural modeling and biochemical studies. We demonstrate that Tyr728 is involved in maintaining the conformation of the KSR1 kinase domain required for binding to MEK. It also affects phosphorylation and activation of MEK by RAF kinases and consequently influences cell proliferation. Moreover, our studies suggest that phosphorylation of Tyr728 may affect the intrinsic kinase activity of KSR1. Together, we propose that phosphorylation of Tyr728 may regulate the transition between the scaffolding and the catalytic function of KSR1 serving as a control point used to fine-tune cellular responses.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology||Copyright (published version):||2013 American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology||Keywords:||MAP Kinases (MAPKs); Mass Spectrometry (MS); Molecular Modeling; Raf; Signal Transduction; KSR1; Src Family Kinases; Tyrosine Phosphorylation||DOI:||10.1074/jbc.M113.490235||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
