The myeloid translocation gene (MTG) homologue Nervy associates with PlexinA on the plasma membrane, where it functions as an A-kinase anchoring protein (AKAP) to modulate plexin-mediated semaphorin signaling in Drosophila. Mammalian MTG16b is an AKAP found in immune cells where plexin-mediated semaphorin signaling regulates immune responses. This study provides the first evidence that MTG16b is a dual AKAP capable of binding plexins. These interactions are selective (PlexinA1 and A3 bind MTG, while PlexinB1 does not) and can be regulated by PKA-phosphorylation. Collectively, these data suggest a possible mechanism for the targeting and integration of adenosine 3′,5′-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) and semaphorin signaling in immune cells. Structured summary: MINT-7556975: PlexinA3 (uniprotkb:P51805) physically interacts (MI:0915) with MTG 16b (uniprotkb:O75081) by anti tag coimmunoprecipitation (MI:0007). MINT-7557008: RI alpha (uniprotkb:Q9DBC7) physically interacts (MI:0915) with MTG 16b (uniprotkb:O75081) by anti bait coimmunoprecipitation (MI:0006). MINT-7556989: MTG 16b (uniprotkb:O75081) physically interacts (MI:0915) with PlexinA3 (uniprotkb:P51805) by pull down (MI:0096).
