GBP1 and PIM1 are known to interact with a molar ratio 1:1. GBP1:PIM1 binding initiates a signaling pathway that induces resistance to common chemotherapeutics such as paclitaxel. Since GBP1 is a large GTPase which undergoes conformational changes in a nucleotide-dependent manner, we investigated the effect of GTP/GDP binding on GBP1:PIM1 interaction by using computational and biological studies. It resulted that only GTP decreases the formation of the GBP1:PIM1 complex through an allosteric mechanism, putting the bases for the identification of new compounds potentially able to revert resistance to paclitaxel.

GTP is an allosteric modulator of the interaction between the guanylate-binding protein 1 and the prosurvival kinase PIM1

Abstract

GBP1 and PIM1 are known to interact with a molar ratio 1:1. GBP1:PIM1 binding initiates a signaling pathway that induces resistance to common chemotherapeutics such as paclitaxel. Since GBP1 is a large GTPase which undergoes conformational changes in a nucleotide-dependent manner, we investigated the effect of GTP/GDP binding on GBP1:PIM1 interaction by using computational and biological studies. It resulted that only GTP decreases the formation of the GBP1:PIM1 complex through an allosteric mechanism, putting the bases for the identification of new compounds potentially able to revert resistance to paclitaxel.
