GCN2 Gcn2p

GCN2, Gcn2p
EIF2AK4 belongs to a family of kinases that phosphorylate the alpha subunit of eukaryotic translation initiation factor-2 (EIF2S1; MIM 603907) to downregulate protein synthesis in response to varied cellular stresses (Berlanga et al., 1999 [PubMed 10504407]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on GCN2
Angiopoietin-like protein 8 (betatrophin) is a stress-response protein that down-regulates expression of adipocyte triglyceride lipase.

The activation of ANGPTL8 gene transcription was mediated through the RAS/c-RAF/MAPK signaling pathway rather than the general GCN2/ATF4 pathways.

Stasyk et al., L'viv, Ukraine. In Exp Cell Res, Feb 2016
The results presented herein state that human colorectal carcinoma cells rapidly exhaust the internal arginine sources in the absence of exogenous arginine and repress global translation by activation of the GCN2-mediated pathway and inhibition of mTOR signaling.
GCN2 sustains mTORC1 suppression upon amino acid deprivation by inducing Sestrin2.

Mammalian cells possess two amino acid-sensing kinases: general control nonderepressible 2 (GCN2) and mechanistic target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1).

Fribley et al., Detroit, United States. In Acs Med Chem Lett, Dec 2015
Murine embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) null for GCN2 and PERK were less able to accumulate UPR markers and were resistant to borrelidin.
Amino acids and autophagy: cross-talk and co-operation to control cellular homeostasis.
Sarkar et al., Cambridge, United States. In Amino Acids, Oct 2015
Furthermore, autophagy is specifically activated in response to amino acid starvation via two key signaling cascades: the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) complex 1 (mTORC1) and the general control nonderepressible 2 (GCN2) pathways.
Extensive differential protein phosphorylation as intraerythrocytic Plasmodium falciparum schizonts develop into extracellular invasive merozoites.
Holder et al., Paris, France. In Proteomics, Aug 2015
Within the merozoite phosphoprotein interaction network a subnetwork of 119 proteins with potential roles in cellular movement and invasion was identified and suggested that it is coregulated by a further small subnetwork of protein kinase A (PKA), two calcium-dependent protein kinases (CDPKs), a phosphatidyl inositol kinase (PI3K), and a GCN2-like elF2-kinase with a predicted role in translational arrest and associated changes in the ubquitinome.
Roles of the translation initiation factor eIF2α serine 51 phosphorylation in cancer formation and treatment.
Koromilas, Montréal, Canada. In Biochim Biophys Acta, Jul 2015
Induction of eIF2αS51P is mediated by a family of four kinases namely, HRI, PKR, PERK and GCN2, each of which responds to distinct forms of stress.
KRAS Genotype Correlates with Proteasome Inhibitor Ixazomib Activity in Preclinical In Vivo Models of Colon and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: Potential Role of Tumor Metabolism.
Amidon et al., Durham, United States. In Plos One, 2014
Depletion of free amino acid pools and activation of GCN2-eIF2α-pathways were observed both in tumor types.
Sensing of amino acids in a dopaminergic circuitry promotes rejection of an incomplete diet in Drosophila.

We demonstrate that the amino acid sensor GCN2 acts upstream of GABA signaling in DA neurons to promote avoidance of the EAA-deficient diet.
Vaccine activation of the nutrient sensor GCN2 in dendritic cells enhances antigen presentation.
Pulendran et al., Atlanta, United States. In Science, 2014
Recent studies using systems biology approaches in humans have revealed that YF-17D-induced early expression of general control nonderepressible 2 kinase (GCN2) in the blood strongly correlates with the magnitude of the later CD8(+) T cell response.
EIF2AK4 mutations cause pulmonary veno-occlusive disease, a recessive form of pulmonary hypertension.

Using whole-exome sequencing, we detected recessive mutations in EIF2AK4 (also called GCN2) that cosegregated with PVOD in all 13 families studied.
GCN2, an old dog with new tricks.
Boye et al., Oslo, Norway. In Biochem Soc Trans, 2013
Gcn2 was first described in budding yeast as a serine/threonine protein kinase involved in the response to amino acid starvation and this is its best characterized role to date.

Pal et al., Pune, India. In Biochimie, 2013
In mammalian cells, there are four eIF-2α kinases, namely HRI (Heme-Regulated Inhibitor), PKR (RNA-dependent Protein Kinase), PERK (PKR-like ER Kinase) and GCN2 (General Control Non-derepressible 2).
AMPK and GCN2-ATF4 signal the repression of mitochondria in colon cancer cells.
Cuezva et al., Madrid, Spain. In Biochem J, 2012
Changes in translational control of mitochondrial proteins are signaled by the activation of AMPK (AMP-activated protein kinase) and GCN2, leading also to the activation of autophagy.
Endoplasmic reticulum stress in retinal vascular degeneration: protective role of resveratrol.
