Dyn I K44A promotes proteolytic processing of ADAM10. A. HEK-M3 cells were transfected with empty vector, ADAM10, or dyn I K44A, as indicated, and allowed to grow overnight. The following day, the medium was replaced with DMEM containing 1 μM L-685,458 or vehicle (DMSO). After 18 h, the cells were surface-biotinylated and then lysed. Biotinylated proteins and cell lysates were subjected to immunoblot analysis. B. Levels of the most prominent ADAM10 CTF (~16 kDa) were quantitated, normalized to levels in vehicle-treated ADAM10/dyn I K44A transfectants, and expressed as means ± SEM from 4 experiments. *Significantly different from corresponding ADAM10/vector transfectants. **Significantly different from vehicle-treated ADAM10/dyn I K44A-transfected cells.
