Abstract

Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-5 (IGFBP-5) has IGF-1-independent intranuclear effects that are poorly defined. Treatment of cells with IGFBP-5 induces migration, prevents apoptosis, and leads to increased laminin subunit transcription. Similarly, filamin A (FLNa), an actin-binding protein that participates in cell attachment, plays important additional roles in signal transduction and modulation of transcriptional responses. In this report, we show that IGFBP-5 leads to dephosphorylation of FLNa with subsequent FLNa cleavage. Following cleavage, there is enhanced recruitment of Smad3/4 to a C-terminal FLNa fragment with nuclear translocation and subsequent binding to the promoter region of the laminin gamma1 (lamc1) gene. FLNa knockdown prevents IGFBP-5-mediated increases in lamc1 transcription. These data indicate that IGFBP-5 induces formation of a FLNa-based nuclear shuttle that recruits transcription factors and regulates transcription of IGFBP-5 target genes. These studies provide new insights into the mechanisms whereby IGFBP-5 and FLNa exert intranuclear effects.
