SPAK and OSR1 Sensitivity of Voltage-Gated K+ Channel Kv1.5

SPAK and OSR1 Sensitivity of Voltage-Gated K+ Channel Kv1.5 SPS1-related proline/alanine-rich kinase (SPAK) and oxidative stress-responsive kinase 1 (OSR1) are potent regulators of several transporters and ion channels. The kinases are under regulation of with-no-K(Lys) (WNK) kinases. The present study explored whether SPAK and/or OSR1 modify the expression and/or activity of the voltage-gated K+ channel Kv1.5, which participates in the regulation of diverse functions including atrial cardiac action potential and tumor cell proliferation. cRNA encoding Kv1.5 was injected into Xenopus oocytes with or without additional injection of cRNA encoding wild-type SPAK, constitutively active T233ESPAK, WNK insensitive T233ASPAK, catalytically inactive D212ASPAK, wild-type OSR1, constitutively active T185EOSR1, WNK insensitive T185AOSR1, and catalytically inactive D164AOSR1. Voltage-gated K+ channel activity was quantified utilizing dual electrode voltage clamp and Kv1.5 channel protein abundance in the cell membrane utilizing chemiluminescence of Kv1.5 containing an extracellular hemagglutinin epitope (Kv1.5-HA). Kv1.5 activity and Kv1.5-HA protein abundance were significantly decreased by wild-type SPAK and T233ESPAK, but not by T233ASPAK and D212ASPAK. Similarly, Kv1.5 activity and Kv1.5-HA protein abundance were significantly down-regulated by wild-type OSR1 and T185EOSR1, but not by T185AOSR1 and D164AOSR1. Both, SPAK and OSR1 decrease cell membrane Kv1.5 protein abundance and activity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Membrane Biology Springer Journals
