Abstract

We show calcium-dependent, direct binding between the N-terminal portion of the PTH/PTHrP receptor (PTH1R) C-terminal intracellular tail and the calpain small subunit. Binding requires, but may not be limited to, amino acids W474, S475, and W477. The wild-type, full-length rat (r) PTH1R, but not rPTH1R with W474A/W477A substitutions, copurifies with the endogenous calpain small subunit in HEK293 cells. Calpain hydrolyzes delta Nt-rPTH1R, a receptor with a 156-amino acid N-terminal deletion, in a calcium-dependent manner in vitro and in intact cells. Most importantly, PTH stimulation increases the cleavage of delta Nt-rPTH1R and rPTH1R-yellow fluorescent protein in HEK293 cells, and of talin in HEK293 cells expressing rPTH1R-yellow fluorescent protein and in ROS17/2.8 osteoblast-like cells that express rPTH1R endogenously. The absence of calpain in Capn4-null embryonic fibroblasts and the lowered calpain activity in MC3T3-E1 osteoblastic cells due to stable expression of the calpain inhibitor, calpastatin, reduce PTH-stimulated cAMP accumulation. The calpain small subunit is the second protein, in addition to the sodium-hydrogen exchanger regulatory factor, and the first enzyme that binds the PTH1R; PTH1R bound to both of these proteins results in altered PTH signaling.
