چکیده

Cell adhesion, migration and the maintenance of cell polarity are all processes that depend on the correct targeting of integrins and the dynamic remodelling of integrin-containing adhesion sites. The importance of the endo/exocytic cycle of integrins as a key regulator of these functions is increasingly recognized. Several recent publications have provided mechanistic insight into how integrin traffic is regulated in cells. Increasing evidence suggests that small GTPases such as Arf6 and members of the Rab family control integrin internalization and recycling back to the plasma membrane along microtubules. The fine tuning of these trafficking events seems to be mediated by specific guanine-nucleotide-exchange factors (GEFs) and GTPase-activating proteins (GAPs). In addition, several kinases regulate integrin traffic. The identification of their substrates has demonstrated how these kinases regulate integrin traffic by controlling small GTPases or stabilizing cytoskeletal tracks that are crucial for efficient traffic of integrins to the plasma membrane.

Integrin traffic – the update

Integrins are a family of transmembrane cell surface molecules that constitute the principal adhesion receptors for the extracellular matrix (ECM) and are indispensable for the existence of multicellular organisms. In vertebrates, 24 different integrin heterodimers exist with differing substrate specificity and tissue expression. Integrin-extracellular-ligand interaction provides a physical anc...

Distinct Recycling of Active and Inactive β1 Integrins

Integrin trafficking plays an important role in cellular motility and cytokinesis. Integrins undergo constant endo/exocytic shuttling to facilitate the dynamic regulation of cell adhesion. Integrin activity toward the components of the extracellular matrix is regulated by the ability of these receptors to switch between active and inactive conformations. Several cellular signalling pathways hav...

Small GTPase Rab21 regulates cell adhesion and controls endosomal traffic of β1-integrins

Dynamic turnover of integrin cell adhesion molecules to and from the cell surface is central to cell migration. We report for the first time an association between integrins and Rab proteins, which are small GTPases involved in the traffic of endocytotic vesicles. Rab21 (and Rab5) associate with the cytoplasmic domains of alpha-integrin chains, and their expression influences the endo/exocytic ...

Competitive binding of Rab21 and p120RasGAP to integrins regulates receptor traffic and migration

Integrin trafficking from and to the plasma membrane controls many aspects of cell behavior including cell motility, invasion, and cytokinesis. Recruitment of integrin cargo to the endocytic machinery is regulated by the small GTPase Rab21, but the detailed molecular mechanisms underlying integrin cargo recruitment are yet unknown. Here we identify an important role for p120RasGAP (RASA1) in th...
