The ubiquitously expressed adapter proteins Nck1/2 interact with a multitude of effector molecules to regulate diverse cellular functions including cytoskeletal dynamics. Here we show that Nck1, but not Nck2, is a substrate of c-Cbl-mediated ubiquitination. We uncover lysine 178 in Nck1 as the evolutionarily conserved ubiquitin acceptor site. We previously(More)
The epithelial Na+ channel (ENaC) is essential for Na+ homeostasis, and dysregulation of this channel underlies many forms of hypertension. Recent studies suggest that mTOR regulates phosphorylation and activation of serum/glucocorticoid regulated kinase 1 (SGK1), which is known to inhibit ENaC internalization and degradation; however, it is not clear(More)
Tropomyosins are widespread actin-binding proteins that influence numerous cellular functions including actin dynamics, cell migration, tumour suppression, and Drosophila oocyte development. Synaptopodin is another actin-binding protein with a more restricted expression pattern in highly dynamic cell compartments such as kidney podocyte foot processes,(More)
Glucocorticoid induced leucine zipper protein (GILZ) is an aldosterone-regulated protein that controls sodium transport in cultured kidney epithelial cells. Mice lacking GILZ have been reported previously to have electrolyte abnormalities. However, the mechanistic basis has not been explored. Here we provide evidence supporting a role for GILZ in modulating(More)
