Abstract [en]

Tensins are proposed cytoskeleton-regulating proteins. However, Tensin2 additionally inhibits Akt signalling and cell survival. Structural modelling of the Tensin2 phosphatase (PTPase) domain revealed an active site-like pocket receptive towards phosphoinositides. Tensin2-expressing HEK293 cells displayed negligible levels of plasma membrane phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate (PtdIns(3,4,5)P-3) under confocal microscopy. However, mock-transfected cells, and Tensin2 cells harbouring a putative phosphatase-inactivating mutation, exhibited significant PtdIns(3,4,5)P-3 levels, which decreased upon phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase inhibition with LY294002. In contrast, wtTensin3, mock and mutant cells were identical in membrane PtdIns(3,4,5)P-3 and Akt phosphorylation. In vitro lipid PTPase activity was however undetectable in isolated recombinant PTPase domains of both Tensins, indicating a possible loss of structural stability when expressed in isolation. In summary, we provide evidence that Tensin2, in addition to regulating cytoskeletal dynamics, influences phosphoinositide-Akt signalling through its PTPase domain.
