Podosome-regulating kinesin KIF1C translocates to the cell periphery in a CLASP-dependent manner.


PMID 25344256

Abstract

The kinesin KIF1C is known to regulate podosomes, actin-rich adhesion structures that remodel the extracellular matrix during physiological processes. Here, we show that KIF1C is a player in the podosome-inducing signaling cascade. Upon induction of podosome formation by protein kinase C (PKC), KIF1C translocation to the cell periphery intensifies and KIF1C accumulates both in the proximity of peripheral microtubules that show enrichment for the plus-tip-associated proteins CLASPs and around podosomes. Importantly, without CLASPs, both KIF1C trafficking and podosome formation are suppressed. Moreover, chimeric mitochondrially targeted CLASP2 recruits KIF1C, suggesting a transient CLASP-KIF1C association. We propose that CLASPs create preferred microtubule tracks for KIF1C to promote podosome induction downstream of PKC.
