Abstract

Immunoglobulin-like Necl-5/Tage4/poliovirus receptor (PVR)/CD155, originally identified as the PVR, has been shown to be up-regulated in cancer cells and to enhance growth factor-induced cell movement and proliferation. In addition, Necl-5 heterophilically trans-interacts with nectin-3, a cell-cell adhesion molecule known to form adherens junctions in cooperation with cadherin. We show here that Necl-5 was down-regulated from cell surface upon cell-cell contacts in NIH3T3 cells. This down-regulation of Necl-5 was initiated by its interaction with nectin-3 and was mainly mediated by clathrin-dependent endocytosis. Then, the down-regulation of Necl-5 induced in this way reduced movement and proliferation of NIH3T3 cells. These results indicate that the down-regulation of Necl-5 induced by its interaction with nectin-3 upon cell-cell contacts may be at least one mechanism underlying contact inhibition of cell movement and proliferation.
