Mitogenic G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling has been extensively studied. In contrast, little is known about anti-mitogenic GPCR signaling. We show here that anti-mitogenic signaling of a GPCR, the bradykinin B2 receptor, involves a novel direct protein-protein interaction. The antiproliferative effect of bradykinin was accompanied by a transient increase in protein-tyrosine phosphatase activity. Using surface plasmon resonance analysis, we observed that an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM) located in the C-terminal part of the B2 receptor interacted specifically with the protein-tyrosine phosphatase SHP-2. The interaction was confirmed in primary culture renal mesangial cells by co-immunoprecipitation of a B2 receptor.SHP-2 complex. The extent of the interaction was transiently increased by stimulation with bradykinin, which was accompanied by an increase in specific SHP-2 phosphatase activity. Mutational analysis of the key ITIM residue confirmed that the B2 receptor ITIM sequence is required for interaction with SHP-2, SHP-2 activation, and the anti-mitogenic effect of bradykinin. Finally, in mesangial cells transfected with a dominant-negative form of SHP-2, bradykinin lost the ability to inhibit cell proliferation. These observations demonstrate that bradykinin inhibits cell proliferation by a novel mechanism involving a direct protein-protein interaction between a GPCR (the B2 receptor) and SHP-2.
