Summation

RAB35 GEFs DENND1A and DENND1B are phosphorylated by AKT in response to insulin signaling at at least 2 sites in the C-terminal region. This phosphorylation relieves an autoinhibitory conformation of the GEF that sterically blocks the N-terminal DENN domain, obstructing RAB35 binding and full GEF activity. Subsequent to AKT-dependent phosphorylation, DENN1D proteins are bound by a 14-3-3 dimer, which is thought to stabilize the open conformation of the GEF, promoting full GEF activity and RAB35 binding (Kulasekaran et al, 2015). Active RAB35 contributes to GLUT4 translocation to the plamsa membrane in response to insulin signaling, among other cellular roles (Kulasekaran et al, 2015; Davey et al, 2012; Humphrey et al, 2013).
