Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase phosphatase (CaMKP/PPM1F) is a Ser/Thr protein phosphatase that belongs to the PPM family. It is important to identify an endogenous regulator of CaMKP. Using an Escherichia coli two-hybrid screening method, we identified the C-terminal cytoplasmic fragment of protocadherin γ subfamily C5 (Pcdh-γC5), which was generated by intracellular processing, as a CaMKP-binding protein. Dephosphorylation of phosphorylated Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase I (CaMKI) by CaMKP was significantly activated by the C-terminal cytoplasmic fragment, Pcdh-γC5(715–944), both in vitro and in cells, suggesting that the C-terminal fragment functions as an endogenous activator of CaMKP. The nuclear translocation of the fragment was blocked by its binding to cytoplasmic CaMKP to form a ternary complex with CaMKI. Taken together, these results strongly suggest that the C-terminal cytoplasmic fragment of Pcdh-γC5 acts as a scaffold for CaMKP and CaMKI to regulate CaMKP activity. These findings may provide new insights into the reversible regulation of CaMKP in cells.
