Abstract

Yersinia encodes a protein kinase, YpkA, which disrupts the actin cytoskeleton. Using an approach termed chemical genetics, we identified a 36-kDa substrate for YpkA in both J774 lysates and bovine brain cytosol. Mass spectrometry analysis identified this substrate as FLJ20113, an open reading frame that corresponds to otubain 1, a deubiquitinating enzyme implicated in immune cell clonal anergy. We demonstrate that otubain 1 is phosphorylated by YpkA in vitro and interacts with YpkA and actin in vivo. Identification of otubain 1 as a YpkA substrate suggests that regulation of immune cell anergy may be a survival mechanism for Yersinia.
