Regulatory role of cardiolipin in the activity of an ATP-dependent protease, Lon, from Escherichia coli



Regulatory role of cardiolipin in the activity of an ATP-dependent protease, Lon, from Escherichia coli



Journal of Biochemistry 149(5): 519-527



Lon is an ATP-dependent serine protease that plays a significant role in the quality control of proteins in cells, degrading misfolded proteins and certain short-lived regulatory proteins under stresses as such heat-shock and UV irradiation. It is known that some polymers containing phosphate groups regulate enzymatic activity by binding with Lon. We focused on the phospholipids of biological membrane components such as phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylglycerol and cardiolipin (CL), and examined whether or not liposomes containing these phospholipids regulate the enzymatic activity of Lon. CL-containing liposomes specifically inhibited both the proteolytic and ATPase activities of Lon in a dose-dependent manner. In addition, on pull-down assay, we found that CL-containing liposomes selectively bound to Lon. The interaction between CL-containing liposomes and Lon changed with the order of addition of Mg(2+)/ATP. When CL-containing liposomes were added after the addition of Mg(2+)/ATP to Lon, the binding of CL-containing liposomes to Lon was significantly decreased as compared with the reversed order. In fact, we found that CL-containing liposomes bound to Lon, resulting in inhibition of the enzymatic activity of Lon. These results suggest that Lon interacts with CL in biological membranes, which may regulate the functions of Lon as a protein-degrading centre in accordance with environmental changes inside cells.
