Abstract: Adenosine A(2A) receptor (A(2A)R)-dependent signaling in macrophages plays a key role in the regulation of inflammation. However, the processes regulating A(2A)R targeting to the cell surface and degradation in macrophages are incompletely understood. For example, the C-terminal domain of the A(2A)R and proteins interacting with it are known to regulate receptor recycling, although it is unclear what role potential A(2A)R-interacting partners have in macrophages. Here, we aimed to identify A(2A)R-interacting partners in macrophages that may effect receptor trafficking and activity. To this end, we performed a yeast two-hybrid screen using the C-terminal tail of A(2A)R as the bait and a macrophage expression library as the prey. We found that the lysosomal protease cathepsin D (CtsD) was a robust hit. The A(2A)R-CtsD interaction was validated in vitro and in cellular models, including RAW 264.7 and mouse peritoneal macrophage (IPM) cells. We also demonstrated that the A(2A)R is a substrate of CtsD and that the blockade of CtsD activity increases the density and cell surface targeting of A(2A)R in macrophages. Conversely, we demonstrate that A(2A)R activation prompts the maturation and enzymatic activity of CtsD in macrophages. In summary, we conclude that CtsD is a novel A(2A)R-interacting partner and thus describe molecular and functional interplay that may be crucial for adenosine-mediated macrophage regulation in inflammatory processes.
