Although [Cl(-)](i) regulates many cellular functions including cell secretion, the mechanisms governing these actions are not known. We have previously shown that the apical membrane of airway epithelium contains a 37-kDa phosphoprotein (p37) whose phosphorylation is regulated by chloride concentration. Using metal affinity (chelating Fe(3+)-Sepharose) and(More)
Nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK, NM23/awd) belongs to a multifunctional family of highly conserved proteins (approximately 16-20 kDa) containing two well-characterized isoforms (NM23-H1 and -H2; also known as NDPK A and B). NDPK catalyses the conversion of nucleoside diphosphates into nucleoside triphosphates, regulates a diverse array of cellular(More)
Cystic fibrosis (CF) results from mutations within the cystic fibrosis transmembrane-conductance regulator (CFTR) protein. The AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is a heterotrimer composed of different isoforms of the alphabetagamma subunits, where the alpha1 catalytic subunit binds CFTR. Nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK, NM23/awd) converts nucleoside(More)
We describe how cations, in the presence of ATP, regulate the phosphorylated form of 19- and 21-kDa nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK; EC 2.7.4.6), a kinase controlling K+ channels, G proteins, cell secretion, cellular energy production, and UTP synthesis. In apically enriched human nasal epithelial membranes, 10 mM Na+ inhibits phosphorylation of NDPK(More)
We have shown that proteins within apically enriched fractions of human nasal respiratory epithelium vary their phosphohistidine content with ambient [Cl–] and other anion concentrations. This membrane-delimited phosphorylation cascade includes a multifunctional protein histidine kinase – nucleoside diphosphate kinase (NDPK). NDPK is itself a cascade(More)
Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) Cl(-) channel mutations cause cystic fibrosis lung disease. A better understanding of CFTR regulatory mechanisms could suggest new therapeutic strategies. AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) binds to and phosphorylates CFTR, attenuating PKA-activated CFTR gating. However, the requirement for AMPK(More)
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is characterised by impaired epithelial ion transport and is caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis conductance regulator protein (CFTR), a cAMP/PKA and ATP-regulated chloride channel. We recently demonstrated a cAMP/PKA/calcineurin (CnA)-driven association between annexin 2 (anx 2), its cognate partner -S100A10 and cell surface(More)
