Cellular reprogramming into a brown adipose tissue-like phenotype by co-expression of HB-EGF and ADAM 12S.

Abnormal adipogenesis leads to excessive fat accumulation and several health disorders. Mouse fibroblasts (MLC) transfected with ADAM 12S and HB-EGF promoted lipid accumulation. Addition of KBR-7785, an ADAM 12S inhibitor, to HB-EGF/ADAM 12S expressing cells suppressed adipogenesis. BrdU incorporation was attenuated and enhanced mitotracker staining was observed in HB-EGF/ADAM 12S cells. Quantitative real time RT-PCR resulted in elevated levels of expression of three brown adipose tissue (BAT) genes (PRDM16, PGC-1α, and UCP-1), while expression levels of the three white adipose tissue (WAT) genes (PPARγ, C/EBPα, and AKT-1) were unaltered in HB-EGF/ADAM 12S cells. Amino- or carboxy-terminal deletions of HB-EGF (HB-EGFΔN and HB-EGFΔC) co-expressed with ADAM 12S stimulated lipid accumulation. Human epidermoid carcinoma cells (A431) also exhibited lipid accumulation by HB-EGF/ADAM 12S co-expression. These studies suggest ADAM 12S and HB-EGF are involved in cellular plasticity resulting in the production of BAT-like cells and offers insight into novel therapeutic approaches for fighting obesity.

Selective inhibition of ADAM12 catalytic activity through engineering of tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase 2 (TIMP-2).

The disintegrin and metalloprotease ADAM12 has important functions in normal physiology as well as in diseases, such as cancer. Little is known about how ADAM12 confers its pro-tumorigenic effect; however, its proteolytic capacity is probably a key component. Thus selective inhibition of ADAM12 activity may be of great value therapeutically and as an investigative tool to elucidate its mechanisms of action. We have previously reported the inhibitory profile of TIMPs (tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinases) against ADAM12, demonstrating in addition to TIMP-3, a unique ADAM-inhibitory activity of TIMP-2. These findings strongly suggest that it is feasible to design a TIMP mutant selectively inhibiting ADAM12. With this purpose, we characterized the molecular determinants of the ADAM12-TIMP complex formation as compared with known molecular requirements for TIMP-mediated inhibition of ADAM17/TACE (tumour necrosis factor alpha-converting enzyme). Kinetic analysis using a fluorescent peptide substrate demonstrated that the molecular interactions of N-TIMPs (N-terminal domains of TIMPs) with ADAM12 and TACE are for the most part comparable, yet revealed strikingly unique features of TIMP-mediated ADAM12 inhibition. Intriguingly, we found that removal of the AB-loop in N-TIMP-2, which is known to impair its interaction with TACE, resulted in increased affinity to ADAM12. Importantly, using a cell-based epidermal growth factor-shedding assay, we demonstrated for the first time an inhibitory activity of TIMPs against the transmembrane ADAM12-L (full-length ADAM12), verifying the distinctive inhibitory abilities of N-TIMP-2 and engineered N-TIMP-2 mutants in a cellular environment. Taken together, our findings support the idea that a distinctive ADAM12 inhibitor with future therapeutic potential can be designed.

LGI1-associated epilepsy through altered ADAM23-dependent neuronal morphology.

Most epilepsy genes encode ion channels, but the LGI1 gene responsible for autosomal dominant partial epilepsy with auditory features produces a secreted protein. LGI1 is suggested to regulate PSD-95 via ADAM22. However, no unbiased screen of LGI1 action has been conducted. Here, we searched for brain genes supporting high affinity LGI-1 binding. ADAM23 was the only LGI1 interactor identified. The related proteins, ADAM22 and ADAM11, but not ADAM12, bind LGI1. Neither ADAM23 nor ADAM11, nor some forms of ADAM22, contain PDZ-interacting sequences, suggesting PSD-95-independent mechanisms in ADPEAF. Because ADAMs modulate integrins, we examined LGI1 effect on neurite outgrowth. LGI1 increases outgrowth from wild-type but not ADAM23-/- neurons. Furthermore, CA1 pyramidal neurons of ADAM23-/- hippocampi have reduced dendritic arborization. ADAM23-/- mice exhibit spontaneous seizures, while ADAM23+/- mice have decreased seizure thresholds. Thus, LGI1 binding to ADAM23 is necessary to correctly pattern neuronal morphology and altered anatomical patterning contributes to ADPEAF.

ADAM12 localizes with c-Src to actin-rich structures at the cell periphery and regulates Src kinase activity.

ADAM12 is an active metalloprotease playing an important role in tumour progression. Human ADAM12 exists in two splice variants: a long transmembrane form, ADAM12-L, and a secreted form, ADAM12-S. The subcellular localization of ADAM12-L is tightly regulated and involves intracellular interaction partners and signalling proteins. We demonstrate here a c-Src-dependent redistribution of ADAM12-L from perinuclear areas to actin-rich Src-positive structures at the cell periphery, and identified two separate c-Src binding sites in the cytoplasmic tail of ADAM12-L that interact with the SH3 domain of c-Src with different binding affinities. The association between ADAM12-L and c-Src is transient, but greatly stabilized when the c-Src kinase activity is disrupted. In agreement with this observation, kinase-active forms of c-Src induce ADAM12-L tyrosine phosphorylation. Interestingly, ADAM12-L was also found to enhance Src kinase activity in response to external signals, such as integrin engagement. Thus, we suggest that activated c-Src binds, phosphorylates, and redistributes ADAM12-L to specific sites at the cell periphery, which may in turn promote signalling mechanisms regulating cellular processes with importance in cancer.

Role of A disintegrin and metalloprotease-12 in neutrophil recruitment induced by airway epithelium.

Among proteases, metalloproteases are implicated in tissue remodeling, as shown in numerous diseases including allergy. ADAMs (A Disintegrin And Metalloprotease) metalloproteases are implicated in physiologic processes such as cytokine and growth factor shedding, cell migration, adhesion, or repulsion. Our aim was to measure ADAM-12 expression in airway epithelium and to define its role during the allergic response. To raise this question, we analyzed the ADAM-12 expression ex vivo after allergen exposure in patients with allergic rhinitis and in vitro in cultured primary human airway epithelial cells (AEC). Clones of BEAS-2B cells transfected with the full-length form of ADAM-12 were generated to study the consequences of ADAM-12 up-regulation on AEC function. After allergen challenge, a strong increase of ADAM-12 expression was observed in airway epithelium from patients with allergic rhinitis but not from control subjects. In contrast with the other HB-epidermal growth factor sheddases, ADAM-10 and -17, TNF-alpha in vitro increased the expression of ADAM-12 by AEC, an effect amplified by IL-4 and IL-13. Up-regulation of ADAM-12 in AEC increased the expression of alpha3 and alpha4 integrins and to the modulation of cell migration on fibronectin but not on collagen. Moreover, overexpression of ADAM-12 in BEAS-2B enhanced the secretion of CXCL1 and CXCL8 and their capacity to recruit neutrophils. CD47 was strongly decreased by ADAM-12 overexpression, a process associated with a reduced adhesion of neutrophils. These effects were mainly dependent on epidermal growth factor receptor activation. In summary, ADAM-12 is produced during allergic reaction by AEC and might increase neutrophil recruitment within airway mucosa.

Catalytic properties of ADAM12 and its domain deletion mutants.

Human ADAM12 (a disintegrin and metalloproteinase) is a multidomain zinc metalloproteinase expressed at high levels during development and in human tumors. ADAM12 exists as two splice variants: a classical type 1 membrane-anchored form (ADAM12-L) and a secreted splice variant (ADAM12-S) consisting of pro, catalytic, disintegrin, cysteine-rich, and EGF domains. Here we present a novel activity of recombinant ADAM12-S and its domain deletion mutants on S-carboxymethylated transferrin (Cm-Tf). Cleavage of Cm-Tf occurred at multiple sites, and N-terminal sequencing showed that the enzyme exhibits restricted specificity but a consensus sequence could not be defined as its subsite requirements are promiscuous. Kinetic analysis revealed that the noncatalytic C-terminal domains are important regulators of Cm-Tf activity and that ADAM12-PC consisting of the pro domain and catalytic domain is the most active on this substrate. It was also observed that NaCl inhibits ADAM12. Among the tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases (TIMP) examined, the N-terminal domain of TIMP-3 (N-TIMP-3) inhibits ADAM12-S and ADAM12-PC with low nanomolar Ki(app) values while TIMP-2 inhibits them with a slightly lower affinity (9-44 nM). However, TIMP-1 is a much weaker inhibitor. N-TIMP-3 variants that lack MMP inhibitory activity but retained the ability to inhibit ADAM17/TACE failed to inhibit ADAM12. These results indicate unique enzymatic properties of ADAM12 among the members of the ADAM family of metalloproteinases.

ADAM12 is a four-leafed clover: the excised prodomain remains bound to the mature enzyme.

The ADAMs (a disintegrin and metalloprotease) comprise a family of multidomain proteins with metalloprotease, cell adhesion, and signaling activities. Human ADAM12, which is implicated in diseases such as cancer, is expressed in two splice forms, the transmembrane ADAM12-L and the shorter and soluble ADAM12-S. ADAM12 is synthesized as a zymogen with the prodomain keeping the metalloprotease inactive through a cysteine-switch mechanism. Maturation and activation of the protease involves the cleavage of the prodomain in the trans-Golgi or possibly at the cell surface by a furin-peptidase. The aim of the present study was to determine the fate of the prodomain following furin cleavage. Here we demonstrate that, following cleavage of the human ADAM12-S prodomain in the trans-Golgi by a furin-peptidase, the prodomain remains non-covalently associated with the mature molecule. Accordingly, both the 68-kDa mature form of ADAM12-S and the 25-kDa prodomain could be detected using domain-specific antisera in immunoprecipitation and Western blot analyses of human serum ADAM12 and purified recombinant human ADAM12. Using electron microscopy after negative staining we have furthermore obtained the first visualization of a full-length ADAM molecule, human ADAM12-S, and report that it appears to be a compact clover composed of four globular domains, one of which is the prodomain. Finally, our data demonstrate that the presence of the metalloprotease domain appears to be sufficient for the prodomain to remain associated with the mature ADAM12-S. Thus, we conclude that the prodomain of human ADAM12-S is an integral domain of the mature molecule and as such might have specific biological functions in the extracellular space.

ADAM12-mediated focal adhesion formation is differently regulated by beta1 and beta3 integrins.

ADAM12, adisintegrin and metalloprotease, has been demonstrated to be upregulated in human malignant tumors and to accelerate the malignant phenotype in a mouse model for breast cancer. ADAM12 is a substrate for beta1 integrins and may affect tumor and stromal cell behavior through its binding to beta1 integrins. Here, we report that cells deficient in beta1 integrin or overexpressing beta3 integrin can bind to recombinant full-length human ADAM12 via beta3 integrin. Furthermore, cell binding to ADAM12 via beta3 integrin results in the formation of focal adhesions, which are not formed upon beta1 integrin-mediated cell attachment. We also show that RhoA is involved in beta3 integrin-mediated focal adhesion formation.
