Proteolytic cleavage of Arabidopsis thaliana phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase-1 modifies its allosteric regulation

Bruno E Rojas, Matias D Hartman, Carlos M Figueroa & Alberto A Iglesias
Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK) plays a crucial role in gluconeogenesis. In this work, we analyze the proteolysis of Arabidopsis thaliana PEPCK1 (AthPEPCK1) in germinating seedlings. We found that the amount of AthPEPCK1 protein peaks at 24-48 hours post-imbibition. Concomitantly, we observed shorter versions of AthPEPCK1, putatively generated by metacaspase-9 (AthMC9). To study the impact of AthMC9 cleavage on the kinetic and regulatory properties of AthPEPCK1, we produced truncated mutants based on the reported AthMC9 cleavage sites....
