Abstract [en]

Pathogenic Yersinia species can evade phagocytosis by injecting virulence effectors that interfere with the phagocytic machinery of host cells. One of these virulence effectors is the protein tyrosine phosphatase YopH. Through its enzymatic activity, YopH interferes with the initial phagocytic process by affecting signalling for cytoskeletal rearrangements. Fyb (Fyn-binding protein), which is an immune cell-specific adaptor protein, has been identified as a substrate of YopH in macrophages. In this study, the interaction between YopH and Fyb is studied. We show that YopH binds to Fyb via different regions in both phosphotyrosine-dependent and phosphotyrosine-independent ways. The phosphotyrosine substrate binding N-terminal part (1-130) of YopH as well as the C-terminal catalytic region binds to Fyb in a phosphotyrosine-dependent manner. We also show that a central part of YopH (130-260) interacts with the Fyb C-terminus (548-783) in a phosphotyrosine-independent manner. Further, we demonstrate that the N-terminal binding region of YopH is important for YopH-mediated functions on macrophages such as dephosphorylation of Fyb, blockage of phagocytosis, and cytotoxic effects.

Abstract [en]

The enteropathogenic bacterium Yersinia pseudotuberculosis binds to β1 integrins on a host cell via its surface protein invasin. This event stimulates signal transduction to the actin cytoskeleton of the eukaryotic cell, which allows the cell to engulf the bacterium that is attached to its surface. However, the pathogen Y. pseudotuberculosis can evade such phagocytosis by injecting virulence effectors that interfere with the antipathogenic machinery of the host cells. One of these virulence effectors is the tyrosine phosphatase YopH. Through its enzymatic activity, YopH blocks phagocytosis by affecting the signalling that is associated with cytoskeletal rearrangements.

Cas is a substrate of YopH in both professional and non-professional phagocytes. We showed that YopH binds to the central substrate domain of Cas and that this interaction is required for YopH to target focal adhesion structures in host cells. We also demonstrated that YopH binds another substrate, FAK, through Cas. Moreover, we suggested that targeting of Cas is necessary for the cytotoxic effects mediated by YopH.

The protein Fyb is specific to immune cells, and it has been identified as a substrate of YopH in macrophages. We discovered that both the N-terminal substrate-binding domain and the C-terminal catalytic region of YopH bind Fyb in a phosphotyrosine-dependent manner. Moreover, we observed that both the substrate-binding domain and the phosphatase activity of YopH are essential for the effects of this protein on macrophages, which include dephosphorylation of Fyb, blocking of phagocytosis, and cytotoxicity.

The role of Fyb in macrophages is largely unknown, although there is evidence that this protein is involved in integrin-linked actin organization. We identified a novel interaction partner of Fyb, mAbp1, which is a protein that binds to F-actin. Studies in vitro indicated that mAbp1 binds to the N terminus of Fyb via a C-terminal SH3 domain. We also found that both Fyb and mAbp1 co-localize with F-actin at the leading edges of macrophages. Further studies suggested that mAbp1 influences the spreading of macrophages and the antiphagocytosis mediated by pathogenic Yersinia. These results support a role for Fyb in signalling that affects F-actin dynamics, and they also provide additional insight into the mechanisms involved. Fyb has been shown to form a complex with SKAP-HOM, another substrate of YopH in macrophages. Our data implied that the level of SKAP-HOM protein depends on the presence of Fyb, but the function of the Fyb/SKAP-HOM complex in macrophages has not been determined. However, since Fyb is the only known haematopoietic-specific substrate of YopH, it is possible that Fyb is involved in other antimicrobial functions.
