Abstract

Cellular responses produced by EGF are mediated through the receptor (EGFR) and by various enzymes and scaffolds. Recent studies document IQGAP1 as a scaffold for the MAPK cascade, binding directly to B-Raf, MEK, and ERK and regulating their activation in response to EGF. We previously showed that EGF is unable to activate B-Raf in cells lacking IQGAP1. However, the mechanism by which IQGAP1 links B-Raf to EGFR was unknown. Here we report that endogenous EGFR and IQGAP1 co-localize and co-immunoprecipitate in cells. EGF has no effect on the association, but Ca(2+) attenuates binding. In vitro analysis demonstrated a direct association mediated through the IQ and kinase domains of IQGAP1 and EGFR, respectively. Calmodulin disrupts this interaction. Using a mass spectrometry-based assay, we show that EGF induces phosphorylation of IQGAP1 Ser(1443), a residue known to be phosphorylated by PKC. This phosphorylation is eliminated by pharmacological inhibition of either EGFR or PKC and transfection with small interfering RNA directed against the PKCα isoform. In IQGAP1-null cells, EGF-stimulated tyrosine phosphorylation of EGFR is severely attenuated. Normal levels of autophosphorylation are restored by reconstituting wild type IQGAP1 and enhanced by an IQGAP1 S1443D mutant. Collectively, these data demonstrate a functional interaction between IQGAP1 and EGFR and suggest that IQGAP1 modulates EGFR activation.
