Abstract

Cells utilize protein-protein interaction (PPI) networks to receive, transduce, and respond to stimuli. Interaction network rewiring drives devastating diseases like cancers, making PPIs attractive targets for pharmacological intervention. Kinases are druggable nodes in PPI networks but high-throughput proteomics approaches to quantify disease-associated kinome PPI rewiring are lacking. We introduce kinobead competition and correlation analysis (Ki-CCA), a chemoproteomics approach to simultaneously map hundreds of endogenous kinase PPIs. We identified 2,305 PPIs of 300 kinases across 18 diverse cancer lines, quantifying the high plasticity of interaction networks between cancer types, signaling, and phenotypic states; this database of dynamic kinome PPIs provides deep insights into cancer cell signaling. We discovered an AAK1 complex promoting epithelial-mesenchymal transition and drug resistance, and depleting its components sensitized cells to targeted therapy. Ki-CCA enables rapid and highly multiplexed mapping of kinome PPIs in native cell and tissue lysates, without epitope tagged baits, protein labeling, or antibodies.
