ik3-1/Cables is associated with and phosphorylated by cdk3 in self-replicating cells. In postmitotic neurons, it may serve as an adaptor molecule, functionally connecting c-abl and cdk5, and supporting neurite growth. Here, we cloned cDNAs coding for mouse Trap (tudor repeat associator with Pctaire 2) to interact with ik3-1. ik3-1 interacts with a region of mouse Trap containing the C-terminal tudor repeat domains 4 and 5 (corresponding to amino acids 881-1086 of mouse Trap). Furthermore, the N-terminal 93-amino-acid domain of ik3-1 is essential for ik3-1 interaction with Trap. Moreover, ik3-1 is coimmunoprecipitated with Pctaire 2 from COS7 cells, although we could not clarify whether ik3-1 is directly associated with Pctaire 2 or indirectly associated with Pctaire 2 through Trap. In vitro kinase assay indicated that ik3-1 does not activate phosphorylation of myelin basic protein or histione H 1 by the Pctaire 2-mediated kinase. These findings led us to speculate that through ik3-1, the Pctaire family and Trap may be functionally connected with cdk3 or cdk5.
