The cytosolic domain of the peptide processing enzyme peptidylglycine alpha-amidating monooxygenase (PAM) contains signals that direct its trafficking in the secretory and endosomal pathways. Using the yeast two-hybrid system, Alam et al. (Alam, M. R., Caldwell, B. D., Johnson, R. C., Darlington, D. N., Mains, R. E., and Eipper, B. A. (1996) J. Biol. Chem. 271, 28636) identified three proteins that interact with a fragment of the PAM cytosolic domain containing these targeting signals. We cloned the rat and human cDNAs encoding PAM COOH-terminal interactor protein-1 (P-CIP1). Both cDNAs contain an open reading frame that encodes a novel protein of 435 amino acids. The P-CIP1 protein is highly conserved from rat to human (85% identity) but does not display significant homology to proteins in the GenBank data base. In vitro, P-CIP1 interacts with the cytosolic domain of wild type PAM-1, but does not interact with mutant PAM-1 proteins that fail to target correctly when expressed in endocrine cells. P-CIP1 contains multiple consensus serine/threonine phosphorylation sites and a region predicted to form a coiled-coil at the COOH terminus. When expressed in endocrine cells or fibroblasts, P-CIP1 is distributed in a punctate pattern in the perinuclear area but does not significantly overlap the distribution of transfected wild type PAM-1. The distribution of P-CIP1 displays significant overlap with the distribution of the secretory carrier membrane proteins, internalized Texas Red-conjugated transferrin, and Rab11. The data suggest that P-CIP1 associates with vesicles in the recycling endosomal pathway, and may play a role in regulating the trafficking of integral membrane PAM.
