Description
Death associated protein kinase (DAPK)-related apoptosis-inducing protein kinase (DRAK)-1 is a positive apoptosis regulator. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying the DRAK1-mediated apoptotic pathway remain unclear. In this study, we demonstrated the intracellular localization and binding partners of DRAK1. In human osteosarcoma cell line U2OS cells, DRAK1 was mainly localized in the nucleus and translocated outside the nucleus through Ser395 phosphorylation by protein kinase C. In the nucleus, DRAK1 associated with tumor suppressor p53 and positively regulated p53 transcriptional activity in response to DNA-damaging agent cisplatin. On the other hand, DRAK1 interacted with the mitochondrial inner-membrane protein, adenine nucleotide translocase (ANT)-2, an anti-apoptotic oncoprotein, outside the nucleus. These findings suggest that DRAK1 translocates in response to stimuli and induces apoptosis through its interaction with specific binding partners, p53 and/or ANT2.
