- GIGYF1/2-Driven Cooperation between ZNF598 and TTP in Posttranscriptional Regulation of Inflammatory Signaling
Final published version, 3.35 MB, PDF document
Inflammatory signaling is restricted through degradation and the translational repression of cytokine mRNAs. A key factor in this regulation is tristetraprolin (TTP), an RNA-binding protein (RBP) that recruits RNA-destabilizing factors and the translation inhibitory complex 4EHP-GIGYF1/2 to AU-rich element (ARE)-containing mRNAs. Here, we show that the RBP ZNF598 contributes to the same regulatory module in a TTP-like manner. Similar to TTP, ZNF598 harbors three proline-rich motifs that bind the GYF domain of GIGYF1. RNA sequencing experiments showed that ZNF598 is required for the regulation of known TTP targets, including IL-8 and CSF2 mRNA. Furthermore, we demonstrate that ZNF598 binds to IL-8 mRNA, but not TNF mRNA. Collectively, our findings highlight that ZNF598 functions as an RBP that buffers the level of a range of mRNAs. We propose that ZNF598 is a TTP-like factor that can contribute to the regulation of the inflammatory potential of cytokine-producing cells.
