Allosteric Regulation of Protein Kinase PKCζ by the N-Terminal C1 Domain and Small Compounds to the PIF-Pocket

Abstract

Protein kinases are key mediators of cellular signaling, and therefore, their activities are tightly controlled. AGC kinases are regulated by phosphorylation and by N- and C-terminal regions. Here, we studied the molecular mechanism of inhibition of atypical PKCζ and found that the inhibition by the N-terminal region cannot be explained by a simple pseudosubstrate inhibitory mechanism. Notably, we found that the C1 domain allosterically inhibits PKCζ activity and verified an allosteric communication between the PIF-pocket of atypical PKCs and the binding site of the C1 domain. Finally, we developed low-molecular-weight compounds that bind to the PIF-pocket and allosterically inhibit PKCζ activity. This work establishes a central role for the PIF-pocket on the regulation of PKCζ and allows us to envisage development of drugs targeting the PIF-pocket that can either activate or inhibit AGC kinases.
