GPR37, also known as the parkin-associated endothelin-like receptor (Pael-R), is an orphan G-protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) that exhibits poor plasma membrane expression when expressed in most cell types. We sought to find ways to enhance GPR37 trafficking to the cell surface to facilitate studies of GPR37 functional activity in heterologous cells. In(More)
Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli induces characteristic attaching-effacing (A/E) lesions on the intestinal mucosa during infection. The locus of enterocyte effacement is essential for A/E lesion formation and encodes a type III secretion system that translocates multiple effector proteins into the host cell. Following translocation, EspI/NleA localizes to(More)
Protein kinase D (PKD) transduces an abundance of signals downstream of diacylglycerol production. The mammalian PKD family consists of three isoforms, PKD1, PKD2, and PKD3; of these PKD1 and PKD2 contain PDZ-binding motifs at their carboxyl termini. Here we show that membrane-localized NHERF scaffold proteins provide a nexus for tightly controlled PKD(More)
Protein scaffolds maintain precision in kinase signaling by coordinating kinases with components of specific signaling pathways. Such spatial segregation is particularly important in allowing specificity of signaling mediated by the 10-member family of protein kinase C (PKC) isozymes. Here we identified a novel interaction between PKCα and the Discs large(More)
