Abstract

We have identified the multiple PDZ domain containing protein (MUPP-1 or MPDZ) as a novel binding partner of the human c-Kit. c-Kit binds specifically to the 10th PDZ domain of MUPP-1 via its C-terminal sequence. Furthermore, a kinase negative-mutant receptor interacted more strongly with MUPP-1 than the wild-type c-Kit. Strikingly, a constitutively activated c-Kit (D816V-Kit) did not bind to MUPP-1, although this oncogenic form retains the PDZ binding motif 'HDDV' at the C-terminal end. Deletion of V967 of c-Kit abolished binding to MUPP-1 and drastically reduced its tyrosine kinase activity, suggesting that the structure of the C-terminal tail of c-Kit influences its enzymatic activity.
