Background: MuSK is a receptor tyrosine kinase that plays an important role in the formation and stabilization of neuromuscular junctions (NMJs) expressed in mammalian tissues other than skeletal muscle, including excitatory neurons in the central nervous system and sperm. The extracellular region comprises three immunoglobulin-like domains and a cysteine-rich domain. The cytoplasmic juxtamembrane segment of MuSK (~ 40 residues) links the transmembrane helix to the tyrosine kinase domain.Upon interaction of agrin, derived from motor neurons, to the transmembrane protein LRP4 induces a conformational change in LRP4 that enhances the interaction between LRP4 and MuSK and facilitates MuSK trans-phosphorylation. In addition to this, MuSK requires a cytoplasmic protein, Dok7, for activation. Dok7 binds directly to the juxtamembrane region of MuSK juxtaposes two MuSK kinase domains for trans-phosphorylation of the three tyrosine residues. The MuSK complex has an intrinsic capacity to organise acetylcholine receptors (AChR) clusters and is essential for targeting AChRs, acetylcholinesterase and a variety of other postsynaptic proteins to the developing synapse.
