JMJD6 Protein Overview: Sequence, Structure, Function and Protein Interaction

JMJD6 Protein Overview

The culmination of apoptosis in vivo is phagocytosis of cellular corpses. During apoptosis, the asymmetry of plasma membrane phospholipids is lost, which exposes phosphatidylserine externally. The phagocytosis of apoptotic cells can be inhibited stereospecifically by phosphatidylserine and its structural analogs, but not by other anionic phospholipids, suggesting that phosphatidylserine is specifically recognized. Fadok et al. (2000) used phage display to clone a gene that appeared to recognize phosphatidylserine on apoptotic cells. Fadok et al. (2000) showed that this gene, phosphatidylserine receptor or PSR, when transfected into B and T lymphocytes, enabled them to recognize and engulf apoptotic cells in a phosphatidylserine-specific manner. Flow cytometric analysis using a monoclonal antibody suggested that the protein is expressed on the surface of macrophages, fibroblasts, and epithelial cells; this antibody, like phosphatidylserine liposomes, inhibited the phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and, in macrophages, induced an antiinflammatory state. This candidate phosphatidylserine receptor is highly homologous to genes in Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila, suggesting that phosphatidylserine recognition on apoptotic cells during their removal by phagocytes is highly conserved throughout phylogeny. Nagase et al. (1998) cloned the phosphatidylserine receptor from a human brain cDNA library and designated it KIAA0585. They demonstrated that KIAA0585 was highly homologous to an uncharacterized open reading frame in C. elegans. Using RT-PCR, Nagase et al. (1998) found that expression was high in heart, skeletal muscle, and kidney, and moderate or low in brain, placenta, lung, liver, pancreas, spleen, thymus, prostate, testis, and ovary. A number of homologous sequences were present in human, mouse, Drosophila, and C. elegans EST databases. The predicted 427-amino acid protein has 1 predicted transmembrane domain and an area in the C terminus that contains a series of serines that represent potential O-glycosylation sites. The predicted molecular weight for this protein based on sequence analysis was 47 to 48 kD for human, mouse, and Drosophila gene products and 40 kD for that of the nematode. Western blot analysis suggested an apparent molecular weight of 70 kD; deglycosylation reduces the apparent size to approximately 50 kD, which is compatible with the predicted molecular weight of 47 kD.
