Profiling N-myristoyltransferase activity and inhibition in breast cancer cells (MD-MB-231) using Sortase-A labelling

ABSTRACT: We report a novel application for Sortase A (SrtA), labeling N-terminal Gly proteins across the proteome at endogenous levels. We combined SrtA labeling of whole-cell lysates with a potent and selective NMT inhibitor, delivering a method capable of quantifying changes in cellular NMT activity in multiple substrates at the whole proteome level. This method shows good overlap in substrates with a previously reported YnMyr metabolic tagging strategy (PXD002687), and a similar capability to measure cellular NMT activity. The SrtA-based approach described here is complementary to YnMyr metabolic tagging, since the increase in signal for newly synthesized proteins exposing an N-terminal glycine mirrors the loss of signal seen with YnMyr. Importantly, this new method overcomes the limitations imposed by metabolic tagging. Since SrtA labeling is performed post-lysis this labeling strategy provides a readout of the cell status in the absence of any external perturbation and is applicable to virtually any type of biological sample, giving clear advantages over other in-cell labeling strategies. We anticipate that this method will enable the exploration of new avenues for NMT as a therapeutic target by providing a method for de novo identification of substrates most responsive to NMT inhibition, and a multifuctional target engagement biomarker assay suited to both animal models and patient biopsies. Besides shotgun proteomics, we coupled this robust NMT activity assay to a variety of other detection techniques, including gel-based analyses, and ELISA. This submission concerns myristoylated proteomes of human origin.

<i>N</i>-myristoylation is the covalent addition of a 14-carbon saturated fatty acid (myristate) to the N-terminal glycine of specific protein substrates by <i>N</i>-myristoyltransferase (NMT) and plays an important role in protein regulation by controlling localization, stability, and interactions. We developed a novel method for whole-proteome profiling of free N-terminal glycines through labeling with <i>S. Aureus</i> sortase A (SrtA) and used it for assessment of target engagement by an NMT  ...[more]
