Translationally controlled tumor protein (TCTP) has both extra- and intracellular functions. Our group recently reported that TCTP interacts with Na,K-ATPase and suppresses its activity. Our studies led to the identification of sorting nexin 6 (SNX6) which binds with TCTP as a potential negative regulator of TCTP. SNX6 does not interact directly with any cytoplasmic domains of Na,K-ATPase. However, when overexpressed, it restores the Na,K-ATPase activity suppressed by TCTP. This was confirmed by measurements of purified plasma membrane Na,K-ATPase activity after incubation with recombinant TCTP and SNX6. SNX6 alone has no effect on Na,K-ATPase activity, but activates Na,K-ATPase via inhibition of TCTP. Inhibition of endogenous TCTP by the overexpression of SNX6 or knockdown of TCTP expression by siTCTP increased Na,K-ATPase activity above the basal level. The interaction between SNX6 and TCTP thus appears to regulate Na,K-ATPase activity.
