Cell adhesion molecules determine the cell-cell binding and the interactions between cells and extracellular signals. Cell-cell junctional complexes, which maintain the structural integrity of tissues, consist of more than 50 proteins including multi-PDZ domain protein 1 (MUPP1). MUPP1 contains 13 postsynaptic density-95/disks large/zonula occludens-1 (PDZ) domains and serves a scaffolding function for transmembrane proteins and cytoskeletal proteins or signaling proteins, but the mechanism how MUPP1 links and stabilizes the juxtamembrane proteins has not yet been elucidated. We used the yeast two-hybrid system to identify proteins that interact with PDZ domains of MUPP1. We found an interaction between MUPP1 and cell adhesion molecule 1 (Cadm1, also known as SynCAM1, Necl-2, or TSLC1). Cadm1 bound to the second PDZ domain of MUPP1. The carboxyl (C)-terminal end of Cadm1 has a type II PDZ-association motif (-Y-F-I) which was essential for the interaction with MUPP1 in the yeast two-hybrid assay. MUPP1 also bound to the C-terminal cytoplasmic tail region of other Cadm family members (Cadm2, Cadm3, and Cadm4). In addition, these protein-protein interactions were observed in the glutathione S-transferase (GST) pull-down assay and by co-immunoprecipitation. Anti-MUPP1 antibody co-immunoprecipitated Cadm1 and Cadm4 with MUPP1 from mouse brain extracts. These results suggest that MUPP1 could mediate interaction between Cadms and cytoskeletal proteins.
The protein-protein interactions play an important role in biological function. Cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) and neuronal adhesion molecules are important for recognition of the information in the extracellular environment. The cytoplasmic regions of CAMs and neuronal adhesion molecules are essential for cell signaling, cell spreading, proliferation, or migration [17] . CAMs and neuronal adhesion molecules interact, through postsynaptic density-95/disks large/zonula occludens-1 (PDZ)-binding domain in their cytoplasmic regions, with many different scaffolding proteins such as multi-PDZ domain protein 1 (MUPP1), membrane- associated guanylate kinases (MAGUKs), calcium/calmodulin-dependent serine kinase (CASK), and protein associated with Lin seven (Pals-2), which are anchored to both transmembrane proteins and proteins in juxtamembrane region [3 , 26]
PDZ domains are ~80 amino acid residues long and folded into a compact globular structure. PDZ domains are often found in multidomain scaffolding proteins [13] . They are small protein-protein interaction modules and typically bind to specific PDZ-association motif in the carboxyl (C)-terminal end of partner proteins, which are most often transmembrane receptors and channel proteins [24 , 29] . PDZ-domain containing proteins play an important role in the targeting of partner proteins to specific subcellular compartments and in the assembly of partner proteins into large molecular complexes [26] . They also can regulate the function of partner proteins [1 , 24] . Defects of PDZ domain- containing protein can cause the human diseases. Mutations in a gene encoding harmonin, a PDZ-containing protein, cause Usher syndrome type 1C, an autosomal recessive disorder [34] . Mutations in the periaxin gene, which also encodes a PDZ-containing protein, have been identified to cause Dejerine-Sottas neuropathy, a severe demyelinating form of peripheral neuropathy [9] .
MUPP1 was originally identified as an endogenous binding partner that interacts with the C-terminus of the serotonin 5-hydroxytryptamine type 2C (5-HT 2C ) receptor [33] . It is a ubiquitously expressed PDZ domain-containing protein, is found in tight junctions, post-synaptic density (PSD), and Schwann cell incisures, and associates with the plasma membrane [6 , 28] . MUPP1, which possesses 13 PDZ domains, acts as a scaffold for attaching different proteins at the proper location in the membrane [12 , 33] . MUPP1 has been reported to interact with GABA B neurotransmitter receptors, olfactory sensory receptors, synaptic Ras GTPaseactivating protein SynGAP, and Ca 2+ /calmodulin-dependent kinase (CaMKII) to regulate neuronal signaling and dendritic spine morphology [5 , 12 , 18 , 21]. MUPP1 also interacts several additional proteins in non-neuronal cells, including claudin-1, junctional adhesion molecule-1 (JAM1), and Kalirin-7, a Rho-GEF, which indicates that MUPP1 potentially integrates multiple signal transduction pathways and can regulate cell junction integrity for epithelial function [2 , 14 , 22] .
To help define the role of MUPP1 in cells, it is necessary to identify the binding proteins of MUPP1. We screened for proteins that interact with the PDZ domains of MUPP1 through the yeast two-hybrid assay and identified cell adhesion molecule 1 (Cadm1, also known as SynCAM1, Necl-2, or TSLC1), a cell adhesion molecule involved in cell-cell interaction and the formation and maintenance of epithelial structure [15] . The MUPP1 and Cadm1 interaction suggests that MUPP1 may contribute as an adaptor or scaffold protein between cell adhesion molecules and the subcellular proteins.
Materials and Methods
- Plasmid constructs
Full-length rat MUPP1 cDNA in the pCMV vector (a gift from Dr. H. Lubbert, Ruhr-Universitat, Denmark) was tagged with a FLAG-epitope at the amino (N)-terminus. Truncations of MUPP1 corresponding to different PDZ domains were prepared by PCR amplification using the appropriate primers. The amplified fragment was subcloned into T-vector. The fragment was then EcoR I-restricted and subcloned into the EcoR I site of pLexA vector (Clontech, Palo Alto, CA, USA). The correct orientation and in-frame cloning of cDNA inserts were verified by restriction enzyme analysis and DNA sequencing. The cDNA fragments corresponding to the cytoplasmic regions of Cadm2 (accession NM_178721), Cadm3 (accession NM_053199), and Cadm4 (accession NM_153112) were amplified by PCR from mouse Marathon-Ready TM cDNA library (Clontech) and cloned into pGEM-T Easy vector (Promega Corp, Madison, WI, USA). The resulting recombinant plasmid was then cut with EcoR I and Xho I and the insert was subcloned into pLexA vector. General recombinant DNA techniques were performed according to standard protocol [25] .
- Screening of MUPP1-binding proteins by yeast two-hybrid assay
The Matchmaker LexA two-hybrid system was used for screening according to the manufacturer’s manual (Clontech). In brief, a part of the rat MUPP1 cDNA was fused to the DNA-BD region of the pLexA vector and the resulting plasmid DNA was transformed into yeast strain EGY48 carrying the p8op-lacZ gene. Transformed EGY48 yeast cells containing the MUPP1 bait plasmid were transformed with the mouse brain cDNA library and grown on synthetic dextrose (SD) plates supplemented with glucose but with no histidine, tryptophan, or uracil (SD/-His/-Trp/-Ura). The selection of positive clones was performed on an SD/-His/-Trp/-Ura/-Leu plate containing galactose, raffinose, X-gal, and BU salts. Plasmids from positive clones were analyzed by restriction digestion. Unique inserts were sequenced and protein sequence analysis was performed with the BLAST algorithm at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Sequence-verified clones were tested again for interaction with the bait in yeast by retransformation.
- β-Galactosidase activity in liquid cultures of yeast
The β-galactosidase activity of yeast was assayed as described previously [31] . Mid-log phase yeast cells were collected and permeabilized with 0.1% sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) and chloroform. An excess amount of o-nitrophenyl-β-D-galactoside (ONPG) was added to yeast lysate, and the mixture was incubated at 30℃, and then the reaction was stopped by increasing pH to 11 by the addition of 1 M Na 2 CO 3 . The formation of the reaction product, o-nitrophenol, was determined by measuring absorbance at 420 nm on a spectrophotometer and normalizing for the reaction time. The units of enzyme activity were calculated by the following equation: units = 1000 × [(OD 420 − 1.75 × OD 550 )] / (reaction time (min) × culture volume (ml) × OD 600 ) [4] . All experiments were independently performed at least three times.
- Glutathione S-transferase (GST) pull-down assays
cDNA encoding the cytoplasmic region of each Cadm protein was cloned in pET41a. The recombinant GST-Cadm fusion proteins were expressed in bacterial strain BL21 GOLD (Stratagene, La Jolla CA, USA) after induction with 0.5 mM isopropyl thio-β-D-galactopyranoside (IPTG) for 3 hr. The fusion proteins were purified using glutathioneagarose beads (Sigma-Aldrich, St. Louis, MO, USA) according to the manufacturer’s protocol. The mouse brain S2 fraction was incubated overnight at 4℃ with the GST fusion protein-coupled glutathione beads. The beads were pelleted by centrifugation, washed three times with the extraction buffer (1% Triton X-100 in PBS containing 10 μg/ml each aprotinin, leupeptin, and pepstatin, and 1 μM phenylmethanesulfonyl fluoride), and once with PBS. The bound proteins were eluted from the glutathione beads with 100 μl of Laemmli’s loading buffer. The pulled-down proteins were analyzed by immunoblotting with anti-MUPP1 antibody (BD science, San Jose, CA, USA).
- Co-immunoprecipitation and Immunoblot analysis
Mouse brains were homogenized in ice-cold homogenization buffer (0.32 M sucrose, 4 mM HEPES, pH 7.3) supplemented with protease inhibitor cocktail (Sigma-Aldrich). For immunoprecipitation, mouse brain lysate was diluted in the same volume of 2X binding buffer (50 mM HEPES, 200 mM KCl, 0.2% Triton X-100, pH 7.0) and incubated with anti- MUPP1 antibody (BD science) or preimmune serum overnight at 4℃, followed by precipitation with protein-A Sepharose (Amersham Pharmacia, Piscataway, NJ, USA). The beads were collected by brief centrifugation and washed three times with TBS-T (20 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.5, 0.2 M NaCl, 0.1% Tween 20). The washed beads were resuspended with Laemmli’s loading buffer and the proteins were eluted and denatured by boiling for 2 min and then separated by SDS-PAGE. The proteins were transferred from the gel to a nitrocellulose membrane and incubated with anti-Cadm1 and anti-Cadm4 antibodies (Sigma-Aldrich).
- Identification of Cadm1 as a MUPP1 interacting protein by yeast two-hybrid screening
To identify MUPP1-interacting proteins, we screened a mouse brain cDNA library through the yeast two-hybrid assays using the N-terminal region of MUPP1 containing 1 st -3 rd PDZ domains as bait. From 1×10 7 colonies screened, we obtained three positive clones, each of which possesses a cDNA fragment of Cadm1 ( Fig. 1A ). MUPP1 is composed of an L27 domain and 13 PDZ domains [33] . To determine the binding domain of MUPP1 that is required for the interaction with Cadm1, we constructed various fragments of MUPP1. Yeast two-hybrid assays with Cadm1 showed that the binding to Cadm1 was critically dependent on the second PDZ domain of MUPP1 ( Fig. 1B ). The cytoplasmic region of Cadm1 contains a class II PDZ-association motif (ϕX ϕ), where ϕ is a hydrophobic residue, at its C-terminus (Y-F-I) [13 , 26] . Next we investigated whether the C-terminal PDZ-association motif of Cadm1 mediates the interaction with MUPP1. For this purpose, a series of C-terminal deletion and substitution mutants of Cadm1 were constructed ( Fig. 1C ) and co-transfected into yeast cells with pLexA-MUPP1. As shown in Fig. 1C , the deletion as well as the substitution of the last C-terminal residue of Cadm1 disrupted the interaction with MUPP1. These result indicated that Cadm1 associates with MUPP1 through its C-terminal PDZ-association motif.

- MUPP1 interacts with Cadm2, Cadm3, and Cadm4, as well as Cadm1.
The Cadms are a family of type I transmembrane proteins consisting of four members: Cadm1, Cadm2, Cadm3, and Cadm4 [7] . They contain a highly conserved short cytoplasmic tail containing protein-protein interaction domains [7 , 23] . Therefore, we tested whether MUPP1 also interacts with the other Cadms (Cadm2, Cadm3, and Cadm4) using yeast two-hybrid assay. As shown in Fig. 2A , MUPP1 also interacted with the cytoplasmic regions of Cadm2, Cadm3, and Cadm4 in yeast system. A quantitative β-galactosidase assay showed that MUPP1 has similar binding affinity to four Cadms ( Fig. 2B ). These results are not surprising in view of the fact that all four Cadms have a class II PDZ-association motif at C-terminal tail [7 , 23] . As shown in Fig. 2B , Cadm1 did not interact with other PDZ domain-containing protein, PSD-95 ( Fig. 2B ). Next we determined the inter action of MUPP1 with Cadms at the protein level using GST pull-down experiments. Each recombinant GST-Cadm fusion protein was expressed in E. coli . The purified GST fusion protein was allowed to interact with mouse brain lysates. Immunoblotting analyses revealed that MUPP1 interacted with each GST-Cadm, but not with GST ( Fig. 3A ). Together, these data indicated a specific interaction between MUPP1 and Cadms through the second PDZ domain of MUPP1 and a class II PDZ-binding motif of Cadms.

The elution fractions were resolved by SDS-PAGE and analyzed by immunoblotting with anti-MUPP1 antibody. (B) Mouse brain lysates were immunoprecipitated with anti-MUPP1 antibody or preimmune serum and then the precipitates were immunoblotted with anti-Cadm1 or Cadm4 antibodies.
- Endogenous interaction of MUPP1 with Cadm1 and Cadm4 in neurons
Cadm1 is expressed in most epithelia and neuroepithelia, such as lung, liver, dorsal root ganglia, various regions of the central nervous system [23] . In contrast to the widespread expression of Cadm1, the expression of Cadm3 and Cadm4 seems to be restricted to neurons and glial cells [19 , 30] . Cadm1 and Cadm4 were major components of the Cadm family in neurons [23 , 32] . To address the question whether MUPP1 interacts with Cadm1 and Cadm4 at the endogenous level of expression in neurons, we performed co-immunoprecipitation analyses. Lysates from mouse brain were incubated with anti-MUPP1 antibody or preimmune serum. Protein A-agarose beads selectively precipitated the immuno-complexes, which were then subsequently separated by SDS-PAGE and immunoblotted with anti-Cadm1 and anti-Cadm4 antibodies. As shown in Fig. 3B , anti-MUPP1 antibody efficiently precipitated Cadm1 and Cadm4. This result suggests that MUPP1 interacts endogenously with Cadm1 and Cadm4 in neurons.
In this study, we have shown that MUPP1 associates with Cadm1. Using the N-terminal PDZ domain-containing region of MUPP1 as bait, we identified Cadm1 in a yeast two-hybrid assay of a mouse brain cDNA library. We have further shown that MUPP1 also interacts with the other Cadms (Cadm2, Cadm3, and Cadm4) and the interactions between MUPP1 and Cadms are mediated by the second PDZ domain of MUPP1 and the C-terminal PDZ-association motif of Cadms. Furthermore, using GST pull-down assay, we confirmed that Cadms interacts with MUPP1 at the protein level. Finally, we have shown that the major neuronal Cadms, Cadm1 and Cadm4, were co-immunoprecipitated with MUPP1 at the endogenous level of expression in neurons. Although we did not investigate the other Cadm1 binding partner, actin cytoskeleton [7] in this study, these results suggest that MUPP1 may act as an adaptor or a scaffold protein between Cadms and subcellular proteins.
Cadm1, a multifunctional immunoglobulin-like cell adhesion molecule, is involved in cell-cell interaction and the formation and maintenance of epithelial structure [7 , 23] . Cadm1 is associated with the actin cytoskeleton through direct interaction with the protein 4.1-binding site in its cytoplasmic domain [7 , 23] . Cell adhesion molecules interact with membrane proteins/receptors and adaptor molecules in juxtamembrane regions [3 , 17 , 23] . For instance, N-cadherin interacts with fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) in neuronal cells [11] . Cadm1 has potential to form heterophilic trans-interaction with other Cadms [10 , 20 , 27] . In this study, we demonstrated that Cadms, interacted with an adaptor/scaffold protein MUPP1.
What would the association between MUPP1 and Cadm1 mean? First, MUPP1 may have a role in subcellular localization and maintenance of Cadm1. Several PDZ proteins, such as Zonal occludens (ZO)-1 and postsynaptic density protein (PSD)-95 act as scaffolding/targeting proteins that have potential to bring their interacting proteins to tight junction or PSD [2 , 12 , 26] . Likewise, the association of Cadm1 with MUPP1 could localize Cadm1 to plasma membrane and stabilize Cadm1 at juxtamembrane regions in epithelial cells. Second, the association may transmit the information to the cytoplasmic region through intracellular signaling pathway. Cell adhesion proteins recognize the change in extracellular environment and transmit the information into a cell [16 , 20] . For instance, E-cadherin interacts with β-catenin in its cytoplasmic region to organize cell adhesion machinery. β-catenin acts as an effector in the Wnt signaling pathway [8] . MUPP1 also interacts with several signaling proteins such as CaMKII [1] . CaMKII exhibits broad substrate specificity and regulates diverse responses to physiological changes of intracellular Ca 2+ concentrations [1] . The protein complex of Cadm1-MUPP1 may possibly recruit CaMKII in the juxtamembrane region to induce cytoskeletal remodeling and the formation and maintenance of epithelial structure, or induce cell motility. Further functional studies on this possibility may help to shed light on the role of MUPP1 in the formation and maintenance of cell junction.
