Role of two dileucine-like motifs in insulin receptor anchoring to microvilli

Shackleton, Sue
Published in Journal of Biological Chemistry. 2002, vol. 277, no. 46, p. 43631-7
Abstract In the absence of ligand, the insulin receptor is maintained on microvilli on the cell surface. A dileucine motif (LL(986-987)) is necessary but not sufficient for this anchoring, which also required the presence of additional sequence(s) downstream of position 1000. The aim of the present study was to identify this (these) additional sequence(s). First, exons 16 or 17 were fused to the extracellular and transmembrane domains of complement receptor 1 and stably expressed in Chinese hamster ovary cells. Results obtained indicate that exon 17 is sufficient for anchoring to microvilli. Second, analysis of insulin receptor mutants truncated within exon 17 demonstrated that whereas receptors truncated at position 1000 showed no preferential association with microvilli, receptors truncated at position 1012 displayed a level of association identical to that of the full-length insulin receptor. Third, mutation of a diisoleucine motif (II(1006-1007)) present within this 12-amino acid stretch abrogated the preferential association of the receptor with microvilli. These results indicate that the domain required for association of insulin receptor with microvilli is contained within the region encoded by exon 17 and that, within this sequence, two dileucine-like motifs (LL(986-987) and II(1006-1007)) play a crucial role.
