Aktivierung der Rho-GTPase führt zur Aktivierung der Rho-Kinase, welche MLCP phosphoryliert und damit hemmt Umgekehrt bewirken zyklische Nukleotide (cAMP, cGMP) eine Aktivierung der Proteinkinase A bzw. G und damit eine Aktivierung der MLCP, vermutlich über Hemmung des Rho/Rho-Kinase-Signalwegs. Dies führt zur Abnahme der Calciumsensitivität Die Myosin-Leichte-Ketten-Phosphatase (auch MLCP oder Myosin-Light-Chain-Phosphatase) ist ein Enzym, welches in den Zellen der glatten Muskulatur vorkommt.

Rho kinase causes phosphorylation and inhibition of myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP) to promote contraction Solaro (2000)Gohla et al (2000). MLCP contains three subunits, one of which is called myosin binding site (MBS) peptide. When MBS is serine and threonine phosphorylated, the activity of the MLCP holoenzyme is inhibited Protein kinase C (PKC) activation by a phorbol ester increases myosin light chain (MLC(20)) phosphorylation through inhibition of MLC phosphatase (MLCP) and enhances contraction of vascular smooth muscle. We investigated whether Rho kinase, which is known to inhibit MLCP, is involved in the MLC(20 Rho- kinase (ROK)-myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP) pathway and protein kinase C potentiated inhibitor (CPI-17)-MLCP pathway have been proposed as two major pathways for the regulation of smooth muscle contraction.20,21 ROK is a serine/threonine kinase that was believed to play an important role in a variety of cellular functions However, direct phosphorylation of MLC2 by Rho-kinase seems unlikely inasmuch as it has been shown that activation of Rho-kinase has no effect on force of permeable smooth muscle in the absence of Ca 2+ when there is no MLC phosphorylation. 18 Regulation upstream of Rho-kinase occurs at the level of RhoA The RhoA/Rho-kinase (ROCK) pathway plays a major role in vasocontraction and vascular tone regulation 7. Activation of the RhoA/ROCK pathway is also essential for the contraction of vascular smooth..
Rho-Kinase 1 (Gen: ROCK1) ist ein Enzym, das mehrere andere Enzyme durch Phosphorylierung aktiviert, sobald es selbst mit dem kleinen G-Protein Rho A eine Bindung eingegangen ist. Es ist daher wesentlicher Bestandteil der Signaltransduktion.Rho-Kinase ist so an der Regulation verschiedener Zellfunktionen beteiligt, wie der Kontraktion glatter Muskelzellen, der Organisation des Aktin. Englisch: Myosin light chain kinase, MYLK, MLCK 1 Definition Die Myosin-leichte-Ketten-Kinase, kurz MLCK, ist ein Enzym aus der Klasse der Kinasen, die im Myosinkopf vorkommt. Sie spielt eine wichtige Rolle für die Kontraktion der glatten Muskulatur Protein kinase C and ROC Kinase are involved in regulating Calcium ion intake; these Calcium ions, in turn stimulate a MYLK, forcing a contraction. Rho kinase also modulates the activity of MYLK by downregulating the activity of MYLK's counterpart protein: Myosin Light Chain Phosphatase (MYLP) RhoA/Rho kinase-mediated MLCP inhibition occurs mainly by phosphorylation and inhibition of MYPT1, the regulatory subunit of MLCP, or by CPI-17-mediated inhibition of the catalytic subunit of MLCP. In this review, we describe the molecular mechanisms underlying the pivotal role exerted by Rho kinase on vascular smooth muscle contraction and discuss the main regulatory pathways for its activity
Rho kinase causes phosphorylation and inhibition of myosin light chain phosphatase(MLCP) to promote contraction Solaro (2000)Gohla et al (2000). MLCP contains three subunits, one of which is called myosin binding site (MBS) peptide. When MBS is serine and threonine phosphorylated, the activity of the MLCP holoenzyme is inhibited The RhoA/Rho-kinase (ROCK) pathway plays a major role in vasocontraction and vascular tone regulation7. Activation of the RhoA/ROCK pathway is also essential for the contraction of vascular smooth muscle8. The first step for activating the RhoA/ROCK pathway involves G protein-coupled vasopressor receptors and con- tractile agonists Myosin light-chain phosphatase, more commonly called myosin phosphatase (EC 184.108.40.206), is an enzyme (specifically a serine/threonine-specific protein phosphatase) that dephosphorylates the regulatory light chain of myosin II.This dephosphorylation reaction occurs in smooth muscle tissue and initiates the relaxation process of the muscle cells. Thus, myosin phosphatase undoes the muscle. Since thrombin stimulates phospho-MLC through RhoA/Rho-associated, coiled-coil containing protein kinase (ROCK)-dependent inhibition of MLC phosphatase (MLCP), we examined the effects of cAMP on this pathway
The Rho kinase (ROCK) isoforms, ROCK1 and ROCK2, were initially discovered as downstream targets of the small GTP-binding protein Rho. Because ROCKs mediate various important cellular functions such as cell shape, motility, secretion, proliferation, and gene expression, it is likely that this pathway will intersect with other signaling pathways known to contribute to cardiovascular disease Both Rho-kinase proteins are ubiquitously expressed in most tissues; Inhibition of ROCK results in an increased activity of MLCP and dephosphorylation of MLC. Thus, Rho/ROCK pathway is a master regulator of the actin cytoskeleton and cell contractility (32,51,65,66). Growth factors, mechanical stretch, cytokines and ECM can activate Rho GTPase through guanine nucleotide exchange factors. Rho-Associated Kinase (ROCK) Is a Key Regulator of Airway Smooth Muscle Hypercontractility. The role of ROCK in airway smooth muscle contractility has been widely studied (Sakai et al., 2017). RhoA is a small GTPase that binds to several surface receptors that activate ROCK when it is bound to GTP (Strassheim et al., 2019). Expression of this kinase is increased in the airways of patients with.

MLCP is a het-erotrimer with an 110- to 130-kDa regulatory subunit (myosin phosphatase target subunit 1 (MYPT1), a 37-kDa catalytic subunit of type 1 phosphatase (PP1cd), and a 20-kDa subunit of unknown function (Hartshorne et al. 1998). The RhoA/Rho kinase signaling pathway regulates mus-cle contraction. MLCP ist ein Dimer aus der katalytischen Untereinheit PPP1CB (EC 220.127.116.11) und der regulatorischen Untereinheit (eine von PPP1R12A/B/C), die das Substrat bestimmt.

MLCP wirkt antagonistisch zum Enzym der Myosin-Leichte-Ketten-Kinase Rho kinase was shown to regulate smooth muscle contraction through modulating myosin phosphatase (MLCP) activity, but the in vivo mechanism remains to be clarified. This study examined the effects of Rho kinase inhibition on the phosphorylation time course of MLCP subunit MYPT1 at Thr697 and Thr855 and MLCP inhibitory protein CPI-17 at Thr38 and on actin polymerization during the contraction.
Rho kinase can directly phosphorylate MLC 20 (Amano et al. 1996 ; Van Eyk et al. 1998) or inactivate the myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP) responsible for MLC 20 dephosphorylation (Feng et al. 1999 a), or both (Feng et al. 1999 b). In addition, RhoK can modify the level of [Ca 2+ ] i (Wang et al. 2007) Rho‐kinase inhibitor fasudil, which was originally developed as an inhibitor of myosin light chain (MLC) kinase (MLCK), and hydroxyfasudil, the active metabolite of fasudil, have been successfully used to treat posthemorrhagic vasospasm (Tachibana et al., 1999 ; Nagumo et al., 2000) The final mechanism involves activation of guanine exchange factor (GEF), RhoA, and Rho kinase. Rho kinase phosphorylates MLCP and inactivates it. Figure 4. Inhibition of the Rho kinase pathway and potential cardiovascular therapeutic effects. The addition of a farnesyl group to the small GTPases, necessary for their association with the plasma membrane and physiologic activity, can be blocked. the other hand, MLCP works independently of Ca+2-calmodulin, being mainly modulated by the RhoA/Rho-kinase pathway69.

Therefore, modulation of MLCP by Rho-kinase MLCP may be important in a variety of vascular smooth muscle disorders, including hypertension, vasospasm, atherogenesis, and proliferative disorders.

Es sind zwei Inaktivierungswege der MLCP bekannt, durch Rho-assoziierte Kinasen und durch die Proteinkinase C (PKC). Bei den Rho-assoziierten Kinasen führt die rezeptorvermittelte Aktivierung von G- Proteinen mit nachfolgender Aktivierung der monomeren GTPase Rho zu einer Freischaltung der Rho-Kinase Rho-kinase phosphorylates myosin phosphatase targeting sub-unit-1 (MYPT1) at Thr694 and/or Thr850 (mouse sequence), leading to inhibition of MLCP activity in smooth muscle cells and tissues (14, 25, 27, 32, 33). This phosphorylation has been reported to be involved in the tonic phase of force development (6, 39); however, the phosphorylation of both sites is not invariably detectable in all. kinase C-related kinase 1 and protein kinase C-related kinase 2, cAMP-activated protein kinase, and AMP-activated protein kinase (Bain et al., 2007). Mouse models of ROCK deletion have thus been developed to provide powerful tools to discriminate specific and nonredundant functions of ROCK1 and ROCK2 in vivo. Unfortunately, the critical role of. Hyperosmotic stress induces the contractile response of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs). Previous studies have demonstrated that cytoskeleton reorganization and Rho/Rho-kinase-mediated inactivation of myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP) play an important role in hyperosmotic vasoconstriction, but the precise mechanism is unknown Ca -sensitization through inhibition of MLCP via activation of RhoA/rho-kinase (Fig. 1) [58, 59].

MLCP inhibition may occur through RhoA/Rho-kinase and/or PKC with phosphorylation of myosin phosphatase targeting subunit-1 (MYPT1) and PKC-potentiated phosphatase inhibitor (CPI-17), respectively. CCh treatment, but not KCl, resulted in MYPT1 and CPI-17 phosphorylation Phosphorylation of myosin regulatory light chain (MLC) plays a regulatory role in muscle contraction, and the level of MLC phosphorylation is balanced by MLC kinase and MLC phosphatase (MLCP). MLCP consists of a catalytic subunit, a large subunit (MYPT1 or MYPT2), and a small subunit Smooth muscle MLCP activity is mainly regulated by Rho kinases, which phosphorylate MYPT1, resulting in lowered MLCP activity 6. A previous study showed that both the α and β forms of Rho kinase were expressed at significantly lower levels in the urethra than in the bladder 13, implying higher MLCP activity in the urethra than in the bladder
muscles is Rho-kinase (Rho-activated kinase/ROK /ROCK-II), which inhibits MLCP through MYPT1 phosphorylation at Thr696 (according to residue number of human MYPT1) (Kimura et al., 1996; Feng et al., 1999). In fact, an increase in the phosphorylation at the site was detected in smooth muscle tissues stimulated with agonists (Seko et al., 2003; Ito et al., 2004). On the contrary, no signiﬁcant. Rho kinase (also known as ROCK) is an important regu-lator of cytoskeleton, which was originally identified as an effector of small GTPase Rho (11). Two isoforms of ROCK have been identified in mammalian system: ROCK1 (also known as ROKβ or p160 ROCK) and ROCK2 (also known as ROKα).

We here review mechanisms that can regulate the activity of myosin II, in smooth muscle and non‐muscle cells, by modulating the Ca2+ sensitivity of myosin regulatory light chain (RLC) phosphorylation.. The Rho‐kinase and PKC pathways can also be modulated under different pathophysiological conditions. For example, Rho‐kinase signalling is altered in denervated/hypertrophic rat bladders 15, bladders of diabetic rabbits 16, bladders of spontaneously hypertensive rats 17, and rabbit and rat bladders with outlet obstruction 18, 19 Because the RhoA-Rho kinase-MLCP pathway is one of the major contractile mechanism in vascular smooth muscle contraction [23, 24, 26], the novel role of C2α and C2β in Rho-Rho kinase-MLCP pathway may provide some insight about understanding the pathophysiology and development of new therapies for cardiovascular diseases including hypertension and vasospasms. For example, a class II. Rho kinase inhibitors reduce IOP by increasing aqueous humor drainage through the primary outflow pathway in the eye, which is known as the trabe-cular meshwork. In addition to improving the outflow facility of the trabecular meshwork, Rho kinase inhibitors also enhance retinal ganglion cell survival after ischemic injury and increase ocular blood flow. Keywords: Glaucoma; Intraocular pressure.
Rho-associated kinase (ROCK) and zipper-interacting protein kinase (ZIPK) have been implicated in the regulation of LC 20 phosphorylation via direct phosphorylation of LC 20 at T18 and S19 and indirectly via phosphorylation of MYPT1 (the myosin targeting subunit of myosin light chain phosphatase, MLCP) and Par-4 (prostate-apoptosis response-4). Phosphorylation of MYPT1 at T696 and T853. . The two isoforms share an overall.
myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP), which is partly controlled via Rho-associated kinase . MLCP comprises subunits including protein phosphatase type 1 (a catalytic domain), myosin phosphatase target protein (MYPT-1, a myosin binding subunit), and a non-catalytic subunit with unknown function . Loss of phosphate in MLC by MLCP induces smooth muscle relaxation whereas phosphorylation. Ionomycin induced phosphorylation of the MLCP-regulatory subunit myosin targeting protein 1(MYPT1) at Thr850 and the 20-kDa myosin light chain (MLC) in a Rho kinase-dependent manner. Knockdown of PI3K-C2α suppressed phosphorylation of both MYPT1 and MLC. The receptor agonist noradrenaline, which induced a rapid increase in the [Ca2+]i and Ca2+-dependent contraction, stimulated phosphorylation. The small GTPase RhoA and its downstream target Rho kinase (Rho-associated coiled-coil protein kinase or ROCK) are involved in cell contraction and a variety of other cellular processes via modulation of actin cytoskeletal assembly. Several studies, including investigations in humans, have clearly shown an important pathophysiological role of this pathway in the cardiovascular system and in. pathway that involves GTPase Rho and Rho-associated kinase (Rho-kinase), which is thought to act by inhibiting of the MLCP activity (for review see Fukata et al. 2001). Thus the inhibition of Rho-kinase signaling pathway desinhibits MLCP, leads to MLC dephosphorylation and therefore to smooth muscle relaxation. This assumptio Rho kinase can regulate MLCP activity by influencing MYPT1 phosphorylation at Thr853 and/or Thr696 . It is possible that the inhibitory effect of SEVO and ISO on KCl-induced vasoconstriction was mainly mediated through the Ca 2+ /PI3K-C2α/Rho kinase/MYPT1/Thr853 pathway

Rho-kinase phosphorylates MLC directly on Ser19 and (or) indirectly via increased phosphorylation of the inhibitory site of MYPT1 leading to MLCP inhibition and a subsequent increase in MLC. RhoA/Rho-kinase increases MLC (myosin light chain) phosphorylation through inhibition of MLCP (MLC phosphatase) thereby increasing Ca 2+ sensitivity. This review will outline the RhoA/Rho-kinase signalling pathway, including the upstream regulators, guanine nucleotide exchange factors, GDP dissociation inhibitors and GTPase-activating proteins.
Activated Rho-kinase interferes with the equilibrium of MLCK and MLCP activities by phosphorylating and thereby inactivating the myosin binding subunit of MLCP. This leads to an augmentation of MLC 20 phosphorylation and hence an elevated level of contraction at an established [Ca 2+ ] i [ 7 , 8 ] MLCP dephosphorylates MLC, implicating it as a negative regulator of acto-myosin contractility. ROCK phosphorylates MBS, Among the Rho-kinase substrates that have been strongly implicated in neural development are the Lim-kinases. The single Drosophila Lim-kinase (DLimk) is required for proper synapse formation and proper regulation of its activity is necessary for normal axon growth [32. Rho-associated kinase directly phosphorylates MLC20 , CPI-17 , and MYPT1, and consequently inactivates MLCP, resulting in increased MLC20 phosphorylation and contraction of smooth muscle . The pathway leading from receptor to G proteins and then to the ultimate inhibition of the phosphatase is unknown
Ca2+ sensitization of smooth muscle contraction involves the small GTPase RhoA, inhibition of myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP) and enhanced myosin regulatory light chain (LC20) phosphorylation. A potential effector of RhoA is Rho-associated kinase (ROK). The role of ROK in Ca2+ sensitization was investigated in guinea-pig ileum ferred to as Rho-kinase, is located on chromosome 2 and encodes a polypeptide of 1388 amino acids [8,9]. ROCK1 and ROCK2 share overall 65% identity in their amino acid sequences and 92% identity in their kinase domains . Review Corresponding author: Liao, J.K.

the membrane and activates Rho associated kinase (ROCK), which in turn targets myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP); phosphorylation of the constitutively active MLCP at its myosin binding region leads to its inhibition, favoring a larger quantity of phosphorylated myosin at lower levels of [Ca 2+]i, a phenomenon termed Ca sensitization Fig. 1. Rho GTPases are major targets for bacterial virulence factors. RhoGTP acti-vates the Ser/Thr Rho kinase (p164ROKa or p160ROCKb) and mDia [mammalian Dia (Dia1, Dia2)]. ROK substrates are the myosin light-chain (MLC) and the myosin-binding subunit (MBS) of the myosin light-chain phosphatase (MLCP). Phosphoryl Protein kinase C(s) activated by phorbol esters and diacylglycerol can also inhibit MLCP by phosphorylating and thereby activating CPI-17, an inhibitor of its catalytic subunit; this mechanism is independent of the Rho/Rho-kinase pathway and plays only a minor, transient role in the G-protein-coupled mechanism of Ca2+ sensitization. Ca2+ sensitization by the Rho/Rho-kinase pathway contributes.
MLCP has been reported to be regulated by two mechanisms: (i) RhoA activates Rho kinase (ROK)  which inhibits MLCP by phosphorylating [Thr855]MYPT, the regulatory subunit of MLCP [24-26]. (ii) Activated PKC phosphorylates [Thr38]CPI-17 which directly and specifically inhibits MLCP [24,27-29]. By inhibiting MLCP, both RhoA/ROK and PKC/CPI-17. Rho kinase The Rho protein belongs to a subfamily member of the small G protein superfamily. So far, more than 20 members of the Rho family have been found. According to the degree of homology and function of the sequence, it is divided into four categories: RhoA, Racl, Cdc42 and lack of GTPase activity.

The relative involvement of Rho-mediated pathways-Rho kinase/MYPT1 and PKC/CPI-17- in MLCP inhibition appears to be receptor-specific. Most Gq/ 13-coupled receptors (e.g. m3, S1P2, motilin) engage both pathways. ETA receptors engage only Rho kinase/MYPT1 while LPA3 receptors engage only PKC/CPI-17 [12,13,18,19]. Zipper interacting protein kinase (ZIPK) was also found to inhibit MLCP. It is a. Rho-kinase inhibits the activity of the myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP) by means of phosphorylation of either MYPT1 at Thr855 of MLCP or protein kinase C (PKC)-potentiated inhibitory protein for heterotrimeric MLCP of 17 kDa (CPI17) which inhibits the catalytic domain of MLCP (Eto et al., 1995). CPI17 can be phosphorylated by PKC as well as the Rho-kinase Myosin light chain kinase (MLCK) and Rho-associated coiled-coil containing protein kinase (ROCK) have been shown to utilize phosphorylation of MLC-2 as a mechanism to regulate the AJC in various forms of intestinal mucosal injury [7,8,9,10,15,16,17]. However, the mechanistic role of MLCK and ROCK in the regulation of AJC, including TJs and AJs, has not been studied in depth. Therefore, this. production . Cold-induced activation of Rho - kinase also causes vasoconstriction via the inhibition of myosin light chain phosphatase (MLCP) and decreased NO production . Taken together, these previous reports suggest that hypothermia-induced Rho-kinase activation inhibits NO-dependent vaso-dilation [8-13]. Therefore, we tested the. MLCP inhibition may occur through RhoA/Rho-kinase and/or PKC with phosphorylation of myosin phosphatase targeting subunit-1 (MYPT1) and PKC-potentiated phosphatase inhibitor (CPI-17), respectively. CCh treatment, but not KCl, resulted in MYPT1 and CPI-17 phosphorylation. Both Y27632 (Rho-kinase inhibitor) and calphostin C (PKC inhibitor) reduced CCh-dependent force, RLC phosphorylation, and.

MLC phosphorylation is regulated by a Ca 2+ pathway that stimulates MLCK and a Rho kinase (ROCK)-dependent pathway that phosphorylates and inhibits MLCP. 28 To further dissect the pathway initiated by oxLDL leading to cytoskeletal reorganization, we evaluated these 2 pathways using ML7 to inhibit MLCK, BAPTA-AM (20 μM) to chelate intracellular Ca 2+, and the ROCK inhibitor Y27623 (10 µM) Rho-Kinase-Aktivität.

Rho-kinase is a serine/threonine protein kinase that contains an N-terminal catalytic kinase domain. As mentioned, the small G protein RhoA and its downstream target Rho kinase play an important role in the regulation of MLCP activity (4,22).

Rho kinase activation has been shown to increase myometrial contractility through inhibition of MLCP . We hypothesized that MEL could act to inhibit MLCP activity via the Rho kinase signaling pathway promoting contractility.
