Abstract: Phosphorylation of the N-terminal tail by protein kinase C strongly inhibits the ability of bovine or human annexin I to aggregate chromaffin granules by increasing the calcium requirement 4-fold (Wang, W., & Creutz, C. E. (1992) Biochemistry 31, 9934-9936). In the present study three forms of human annexin I truncated in the amino terminus at residue Trp-12, Lys-26, or Lys-29 exhibit dramatic differences in their sensitivities to calcium in a chromaffin granule aggregation assay, while the [Ca2+](1/2)max values for binding of the truncated proteins to granule membranes are similar. Cleavage at Trp-12 causes a 3-fold decrease in calcium sensitivity in the membrane aggregation assay, while cleavage at Lys-26 causes a 4-fold enhancement of calcium sensitivity. In contrast, cleavage at Lys-29 results in virtually no change in calcium sensitivity. Mutagenic substitution with negatively charged amino acids of Ser-27, a site for phosphorylation by protein kinase C, or Tyr-21, a site for phosphorylation by the epidermal growth factor receptor kinase, mimics the inhibition of granule-aggregating activity seen with phosphorylation by protein kinase C. When bovine chromaffin cells are stimulated to secrete by nicotine, annexin I is phosphorylated in the amino terminus. Thr-24 and Ser-28, which are sites for phosphorylation by protein kinase C in vitro, are two of the sites phosphorylated in vivo in stimulated chromaffin cells. These data demonstrate that the ability of annexin I to promote membrane aggregation is highly sensitive to changes in the structure of the N-terminal domain of the protein.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS.
