Abstract

Neuregulin-1 (NRG1) plays an important role in neural development, synapse formation, and synaptic plasticity by activating ErbB receptor tyrosine kinases. Although ligand-induced endocytosis has been shown to be important for many receptor tyrosine kinases, whether NRG1 signaling depends on ErbB endocytosis remains controversial. Here, we provide evidence that ErbB4, a prominent ErbB protein in the brain, becomes internalized in NRG1-stimulated neurons. The induced ErbB4 endocytosis requires its kinase activity. Remarkably, inhibition of ErbB endocytosis attenuates NRG1-induced activation of Erk and Akt in neurons. These observations indicate a role of ErbB endocytosis in NRG1 signaling in neurons.
