In this study, we examined the localization of hepaCAM in lipid rafts/caveolae as well as the interaction of hepaCAM with the caveolar structural protein caveolin-1 (Cav-1). Our results revealed that a portion of hepaCAM resided in detergent-resistant membranes and co-partitioned with Cav-1 to low buoyant density fractions characteristic of lipid rafts/caveolae. In addition, co-localization and coimmunoprecipitation assays confirmed the association of hepaCAM with Cav-1. Deletion analysis of hepaCAM showed that the extracellular first immunoglobulin domain of hepaCAM was required for binding Cav-1. Furthermore, when co-expressed, Cav-1 induced the expression of hepaCAM as well as distributed hepaCAM to intracellular Cav-1-positive caveolar structures. Taken together, our findings indicate that hepaCAM is partially localized in the lipid rafts/caveolae and interacts with Cav-1 through its first immunoglobulin domain. © 2008 Elsevier Inc.
