The current 14-3-3 diseasome encompasses tumourigenesis, cardiovascular, metabolic and neurological disorders. Some 480 human disease gene sets describedin the Genetic Association Database were recently mapped to indicate the degree of gene sharing among diseases [68]. We extracted from this disease map the goldstandard proteins with defined 14-3-3-binding phosphorylation sites [15,69]. The 14-3-3 binders map predominantly in four disease classes: tumourigenesis (11 proteins:P53, BRAF, MDM2, CDN1B, AKP13, IRS1, PRLR, CTNB1, CHK1, ABL1, GLI2), cardiovascular (6 proteins: GP1BA, TY3H, ITB2, MEFV, IRS1, CDN1B), metabolic (5 proteins:IRS1, GP1BA, TY3H, IGF1R, MEFV) and psychiatric or behaviour (11 proteins: TAU, IGF1R, GP1BA, P53, LRRK2, TY3H, ACHA4, MEFV, COF1, SLIK1, TPH2). The proteinoverlap between these classes is illustrated here by Visant graphing ( This map is just a starting point, with indications that the concentration of 14-3-3-binding proteins in the tumourigenesis, cardiovascular, metabolic and neurological disease classes will increase. For example, AS160 and TBC1D1, mutations of which arefound in subtypes of diabetes and obesity, respectively [56,61,62], were not in the Genetic Association Database when the disease map was prepared [68]. Moreover, furtherproteins linked to these four disease classes are among those that exhibit affinity for 14-3-3 s in high-throughput proteomics studies; these await biochemical studies todefine the specificity of their interactions with 14-3-3 [23,24,26,27].which is a configuration that confers interesting signalling promoter (BAD) for which the 14-3-3 has been proposed asand mechanical properties [14–16]. an OR gate because phosphorylation of either site is suffi- The act of docking onto two phosphorylated residues cient to recruit 14-3-3, which in turn promotes cell survivalturns a 14-3-3 dimer into a type of biochemical microcon- by preventing BAD binding to the anti-apoptotic BCL-XLtroller called a logic gate (Figure 2a).

(a) Analogy between a 14-3-3 dimer and digitallogic gates. Digital AND and OR gates, which integrate two inputs into a single output, are depicted on the right. The left-hand side shows how the act of docking onto twosites, which may be phosphorylated by different kinases, turns the 14-3-3 dimer into a digital logic gate whose output is a mechanical action. (b) The 14-3-3 s are dimericregulatory proteins that dock onto two phosphorylated residues, which are usually on the same target protein. Mechanically, this means that 14-3-3 can act as levers to forcea conformational change in a target, can mask a functional domain within the central groove, and can potentially clip back flanking regions to present a functional domainfor external interactions. When the two phosphorylated 14-3-3-binding sites are on different proteins, the 14-3-3 dimer would be an adapter that stabilises the interactionbetween the two targets. 14-3-3 s are remarkable for having hundreds of phosphoprotein partners. (c) Phosphorylated 14-3-3-binding sites are created by CAMK and AGCkinases. The frequency plot at the bottom was generated by aligning the sequences around more than 200 14-3-3-binding sites, centred on the phosphorylated 14-3-3-binding residue, which can be serine or threonine [15]. Most 14-3-3-binding sites have arginine somewhere in the -3 to -5 positions relative to the phosphorylated site, andjust under half have a proline at +2. Such sites are generally phosphorylated by basophilic kinases in the AGC and CAMK sections of the human kinome, including centralmediators of insulin and nutrient we consider cases for which fuzzy 14-3-3 AND gates conformational change in the target.

Hypothesis of complementary regulation of glucose homeostasis by AS160 and TBC1D1 in skeletal muscles. Domains, motifs and disease-associated mutations(the latter in red) are shown in bar diagrams of AS160 and TBC1D1 (see the text for sources). PTB1 and PTB2 are phosphotyrosine interaction domains (by sequence,although their interaction partners have not been reported); CBD is a calcium-regulated region; and Rab GAP is the Rab GTPase-activating domain. In the hypothesis shownhere, AMPK controls GLUT4 trafficking through Ser237 phosphorylation and consequent docking of 14-3-3 onto the TBC1D1 protein, whereas the insulin–PKB (AKT)pathway regulates surface translocation of GLUT4 via Thr642 phosphorylation and consequent 14-3-3 binding of the AS160 protein.
