Wang J, Cao W, Zhang W, Dou B, Zeng X, Su S, Cao H, Ding X, Ma J, Li X. Ac(3)4FGlcNAz is an effective metabolic chemical reporter for O-GlcNAcylated proteins with decreased S-glyco-modification. Bioorganic chemistry 2023 131 36610251
Abstract:
O-GlcNAcylation is a ubiquitous post-translational modification governing vital biological processes in cancer, diabetes and neurodegeneration. Metabolic chemical reporters (MCRs) containing bio-orthogonal groups such as azido or alkyne, are widely used for labeling of interested proteins. However, most MCRs developed for O-GlcNAc modification are not specific and always lead to unexpected side reactions termed S-glyco-modification. Here, we attempt to develop a new MCR of Ac34FGlcNAz that replacing the 4-OH of Ac4GlcNAz with fluorine, which is supposed to abolish the epimerization of GALE and enhance the selectivity. The discoveries demonstrate that Ac34FGlcNAz is a powerful MCR for O-GlcNAcylation with high efficiency and the process of this labeling is conducted by the two enzymes of OGT and OGA. Most importantly, Ac34FGlcNAz is predominantly incorporated intracellular proteins in the form of O-linkage and leads to negligible S-glyco-modification, indicating it is a selective MCR for O-GlcNAcylation. Therefore, we reason that Ac34FGlcNAz developed here is a well characterized MCR of O-GlcNAcylation, which provides more choice for label and enrichment of O-GlcNAc associated proteins.

Abstract:
Transient receptor potential canonical type 6 (TRPC6) is a non-voltage-gated channel that principally conducts calcium. Elevated channel activation contributes to fibrosis, hypertrophy, and proteinuria, often coupled to stimulation of nuclear factor of activated T-cells (NFAT). TRPC6 is post-translationally regulated, but a role for O-linked β-N-acetyl glucosamine (O-GlcNAcylation) as elevated by diabetes, is unknown. Here we show TRPC6 is constitutively O-GlcNAcylated at Ser14, Thr70, and Thr221 in the N-terminus ankryn-4 (AR4) and linker (LH1) domains. Mutagenesis to alanine reveals T221 as a critical controller of resting TRPC6 conductance, and associated NFAT activity and pro-hypertrophic signaling. T→A mutations at sites homologous in closely related TRPC3 and TRPC7 also increases their activity. Molecular modeling predicts interactions between Thr221-O-GlcNAc and Ser199, Glu200, and Glu246, and combined alanine substitutions of the latter similarly elevates resting NFAT activity. Thus, O-GlcNAcylated T221 and interactions with coordinating residues is required for normal TRPC6 channel conductance and NFAT activation.

O-GlcNAcylated LARP1 positively regulated by circCLNS1A facilitates hepatoblastoma progression through DKK4/β-catenin signalling. Clinical and translational medicine 2023 13(4) 37070251
Abstract:
Accumulating studies have shown that La-related protein 1 (LARP1) is involved in the occurrence and development of various tumours. However, the expression pattern and biological role of LARP1 in hepatoblastoma (HB) remain unclear so far.

Abstract:
O-linked β-N-acetyl glucosamine (O-GlcNAc) is at the crossroads of cellular metabolism, including glucose and glutamine; its dysregulation leads to molecular and pathological alterations that cause diseases. Here we report that O-GlcNAc directly regulates de novo nucleotide synthesis and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) production upon abnormal metabolic states. Phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase 1 (PRPS1), the key enzyme of the de novo nucleotide synthesis pathway, is O-GlcNAcylated by O-GlcNAc transferase (OGT), which triggers PRPS1 hexamer formation and relieves nucleotide product-mediated feedback inhibition, thereby boosting PRPS1 activity. PRPS1 O-GlcNAcylation blocked AMPK binding and inhibited AMPK-mediated PRPS1 phosphorylation. OGT still regulates PRPS1 activity in AMPK-deficient cells. Elevated PRPS1 O-GlcNAcylation promotes tumorigenesis and confers resistance to chemoradiotherapy in lung cancer. Furthermore, Arts-syndrome-associated PRPS1 R196W mutant exhibits decreased PRPS1 O-GlcNAcylation and activity. Together, our findings establish a direct connection among O-GlcNAc signals, de novo nucleotide synthesis and human diseases, including cancer and Arts syndrome.

Abstract:
As an essential modification, O-linked β-N-acetylglucosamine (O-GlcNAc) modulates the functions of many proteins. However, site-specific characterization of O-GlcNAcylated proteins remains challenging. Herein, an innovative material grafted with nitro-oxide (N→O) groups was designed for high affinity enrichment for O-GlcNAc peptides from native proteins. By testing with synthetic O-GlcNAc peptides and standard proteins, the synthesized material exhibited high affinity and selectivity. Based on the material prepared, we developed a workflow for site-specific analysis of O-GlcNAcylated proteins in complex samples. We performed O-GlcNAc proteomics with the PANC-1 cell line, a representative model for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. In total 364 O-GlcNAc peptides from 267 proteins were identified from PANC-1 cells. Among them, 183 proteins were newly found to be O-GlcNAcylated in humans (with 197 O-GlcNAc sites newly reported). The materials and methods can be facilely applied for site-specific O-GlcNAc proteomics in other complex samples.
