In neurons, amyloid β-protein precursor (APP) is transported by binding to kinesin-1, mediated by JNK-interacting protein 1b (JIP1b), which generates the enhanced fast velocity (EFV) and efficient high frequency (EHF) of APP anterograde transport. Previously we showed that EFV requires a conventional interaction between JIP1b C-terminal region and kinesin light chain 1 (KLC1) tetratricopeptide repeat, whereas EHF requires a novel interaction between the central region of JIP1b and the coiled-coil domain of KLC1. We found that phosphorylatable Thr466 of KLC1 regulates the conventional interaction with JIP1b. Substitution of Glu for Thr466 abolished this interaction and EFV, but did not impair the novel interaction responsible for EHF. Phosphorylation of KLC1 at Thr466 increased in aged brain and JIP1 binding to kinesin-1 decreased, suggesting that APP transport is impaired by aging. We conclude that phosphorylation of KLC1 at Thr466 regulates the velocity of transport of APP by kinesin-1 by modulating its interaction with JIP1b.
