Séminaire impromptu - Kenneth Lindegaard MadsenMembrane modulating BAR domain proteins in regulation of budding from the Golgi complex during biogenesis of dense core vesicles

Abstract :

Secretory vesicles in endocrine cells store peptide hormones such as growth hormone (GH) and insulin before their release into the bloodstream. The molecular mechanisms governing budding of immature secretory vesicles from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) and their subsequent maturation remain unclear. This talk will discuss the recent findings that a subfamily of BAR domain proteins, including PICK1, ICA69 and Arfaptin1, play a key role in the early stages of dense core vesicle biogenesis, with focus on the dimeric PICK1/ICA69 complex. Our efforts range from understanding the underlying molecular mechanisms, involving recognition and generation of membrane curvature, to the physiological role of these proteins investigated in mice and flies. Finally, we show recent evidence that mutations in PICK1 are associated with metabolic syndrome in humans patients.
