Structural basis for kinesin-1:cargo recognition.
London, United Kingdom. In Science, 2013
Here, we present the crystal structure of the tetratricopeptide repeat domain of kinesin light chain 2 in complex with a cargo peptide harboring a "tryptophan-acidic" motif derived from SKIP (SifA-kinesin interacting protein), a critical host determinant in Salmonella pathogenesis and a regulator of lysosomal positioning.
Arl8 and SKIP act together to link lysosomes to kinesin-1.
Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Dev Cell, 2012
Arl8 and SKIP are required for lysosomes to distribute away from the microtubule-organizing center. We identify two kinesin light chain binding motifs in SKIP that are required for lysosomes to accumulate kinesin-1 and redistribute to the cell periphery.
