    Human integral membrane protein 2B (ITM2B or Bri2) is a member of the BRICHOS family, proteins that efficiently prevent Aβ42 aggregation via a unique mechanism. The identification of novel Bri2 BRICHOS client proteins could help elucidate signaling pathways and determine novel targets to prevent or cure amyloid diseases. To identify Bri2 BRICHOS interacting partners, we carried out a 'protein fishing' experiment using recombinant human (rh) Bri2 BRICHOS-coated magnetic particles, which exhibit essentially identical ability to inhibit Aβ42 fibril formation as free rh Bri2 BRICHOS, in combination with proteomic analysis on homogenates of SH-SY5Y cells. We identified 70 proteins that had more significant interactions with rh Bri2 BRICHOS relative to the corresponding control particles. Three previously identified Bri2 BRICHOS interacting proteins were also identified in our 'fishing' experiments. The binding affinity of Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), the top 'hit', was calculated and was identified as a strong interacting partner. Enrichment analysis of the retained proteins identified three biological pathways: Rho GTPase, heat stress response and pyruvate, cysteine and methionine metabolism. Published by Elsevier B.V.
