Abstract

The prompt clearance of cells undergoing apoptosis is critical during embryonic development and normal tissue turnover, as well as during inflammation and autoimmune responses. We recently demonstrated that stabilin-2 is a phosphatidylserine receptor that mediates the clearance of apoptotic cells, thereby releasing the anti-inflammatory cytokine, transforming growth factor-β. However, the downstream signaling components of stabilin-2-mediated phagocytosis are not known. Here, we provide evidence that the adaptor protein, GULP, physically and functionally interacts with the stabilin-2 cytoplasmic tail. Using fluorescent resonance energy transfer analysis and biochemical approaches, we show that GULP directly binds to the cytoplasmic tail of stabilin-2. Knockdown of endogenous GULP expression significantly decreased stabilin-2-mediated phagocytosis. Conversely, overexpression of GULP caused an increase in aged cell engulfment. The phosphotyrosine binding (PTB) domain of GULP was sufficient for the interaction with stabilin-2; therefore, transduction of TAT fusion PTB domain acts as a dominant negative, resulting in impaired engulfment of aged red blood cells in stabilin-2 expressing cells. In addition, the PTB domain of GULP was able to specifically interact with the NPXY motif of the stabilin-2 cytoplasmic tail. Taken together, these results indicate that GULP is a likely downstream molecule in the stabilin-2-mediated signaling pathway and plays an important role in stabilin-2-mediated phagocytosis.
