Phenotypic characterization of Drosophila ida mutants: defining the role of APC5 in cell cycle progression. (1/18)

We have cloned and characterized the ida gene that is required for proliferation of imaginal disc cells during Drosophila development. IDA is homologous to APC5, a subunit of the anaphase-promoting complex (APC/cyclosome). ida mRNA is detected in most cell types throughout development, but it accumulates to its highest levels during early embryogenesis. A maternal component of IDA is required for the production of eggs and viable embryos. Homozygous ida mutants display mitotic defects: they die during prepupal development, lack all mature imaginal disc structures, and have abnormally small optic lobes. Cytological observations show that ida mutant brains have a high mitotic index and many imaginal cells contain an aneuploid number of aberrant overcondensed chromosomes. However, cells are not stalled in metaphase, as mitotic stages in which chromosomes are orientated at the equatorial plate are never observed. Interestingly, some APC/C-target substrates such as cyclin B are not degraded in ida mutants, whereas others controlling sister-chromatid separation appear to be turned over. Taken together, these results suggest a model in which IDA/APC5 controls regulatory subfunctions of the anaphase-promoting complex.  (+info)

The ubiquitin-dependent targeting pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae plays a critical role in multiple chromatin assembly regulatory steps. (2/18)

In a screen designed to isolate Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains defective for in vitro chromatin assembly, two temperature-sensitive (ts) mutants were obtained: rmc1 and rmc3 (remodeling of chromatin). Cloning of RMC1 and RMC3 revealed a broad role for the ubiquitin-dependent targeting cascade as the ubiquitin-protein ligases (E3s), the anaphase promoting complex (APC; RMC1 encodes APC5) and Rsp5p, respectively, were identified. Genetic studies linked the rmc1/apc5 chromatin assembly defect to APC function: rmc1/apc5 genetically interacted with apc9Delta, apc10Delta, and cdc26Delta mutants. Furthermore, phenotypes associated with the rmc1/apc5 allele were consistent with defects in chromatin metabolism and in APC function: (i) UV sensitivity, (ii) plasmid loss, (iii) accumulation of G2/M cells, and (iv) suppression of the ts defect by growth on glucose-free media and by expression of ubiquitin. On the other hand, the multifunctional E3, Rsp5p, was shown to be required for both in vitro and in vivo chromatin assembly, as well as for the proper transcriptional and translational control of at least histone H3. The finding that the distinctly different E3 enzymes, APC and Rsp5p, both play roles in regulating chromatin assembly highlight the depth of the regulatory networks at play. The significance of these findings will be discussed.  (+info)

Mnd2 and Swm1 are core subunits of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae anaphase-promoting complex. (3/18)

The anaphase-promoting complex (APC) is a multisubunit E3 ubiquitin ligase that regulates the metaphase-anaphase transition and exit from mitosis in eukaryotic cells. Eleven subunits have been previously identified in APC from budding yeast. We have identified two additional subunits, Mnd2 and Swm1, by mass spectrometry. Both Mnd2 and Swm1 were found specifically associated with a highly purified preparation of APC from haploid yeast whole cell extract. Moreover, the APC co-purified with epitope-tagged Mnd2 and Swm1. Both proteins were present in APC preparations from haploid cells arrested in G(1), S, and M phases and from meiotic diploid cells, indicating that they are constitutive components of the complex throughout the yeast cell cycle. Mnd2 interacted strongly with Cdc23, Apc5, and Apc1 when coexpressed in an in vitro transcription/translation reaction. Swm1 also interacted with Cdc23 and Apc5 in this system. Previous studies described meiotic defects for mutations in MND2 and SWM1. Here, we show that mnd2delta and swm1delta haploid strains exhibit slow growth and accumulation of G(2)/M cells comparable with that seen in apc9delta or apc10Delta strains and consistent with an APC defect. Taken together, these results demonstrate that Swm1 and Mnd2 are functional components of the yeast APC.  (+info)

TPR subunits of the anaphase-promoting complex mediate binding to the activator protein CDH1. (4/18)

BACKGROUND: Chromosome segregation and mitotic exit depend on activation of the anaphase-promoting complex (APC) by the substrate adaptor proteins CDC20 and CDH1. The APC is a ubiquitin ligase composed of at least 11 subunits. The interaction of APC2 and APC11 with E2 enzymes is sufficient for ubiquitination reactions, but the functions of most other subunits are unknown. RESULTS: We have biochemically characterized subcomplexes of the human APC. One subcomplex, containing APC2/11, APC1, APC4, and APC5, can assemble multiubiquitin chains but is unable to bind CDH1 and to ubiquitinate substrates. The other subcomplex contains all known APC subunits except APC2/11. This subcomplex can recruit CDH1 but fails to support any ubiquitination reaction. In vitro, the C termini of CDC20 and CDH1 bind to the closely related TPR subunits APC3 and APC7. Homology modeling predicts that these proteins are similar in structure to the peroxisomal import receptor PEX5, which binds cargo proteins via their C termini. APC activation by CDH1 depends on a conserved C-terminal motif that is also found in CDC20 and APC10. CONCLUSIONS: APC1, APC4, and APC5 may connect APC2/11 with TPR subunits. TPR domains in APC3 and APC7 recruit CDH1 to the APC and may thereby bring substrates into close proximity of APC2/11 and E2 enzymes. In analogy to PEX5, the different TPR subunits of the APC might function as receptors that interact with the C termini of regulatory proteins such as CDH1, CDC20, and APC10.  (+info)

The Apc5 subunit of the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome interacts with poly(A) binding protein and represses internal ribosome entry site-mediated translation. (5/18)

The anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) is a multisubunit ubiquitin ligase that mediates the proteolysis of cell cycle proteins in mitosis and G(1). We used a yeast three-hybrid screen to identify proteins that interact with the internal ribosome entry site (IRES) of platelet-derived growth factor 2 mRNA. Surprisingly, this screen identified Apc5, although it does not harbor a classical RNA binding domain. We found that Apc5 binds the poly(A) binding protein (PABP), which directly binds the IRES element. PABP was found to enhance IRES-mediated translation, whereas Apc5 overexpression counteracted this effect. In addition to its association with the APC/C complex, Apc5 binds much heavier complexes and cosediments with the ribosomal fraction. In contrast to Apc3, which is associated only with the APC/C and remains intact during differentiation, Apc5 is degraded upon megakaryocytic differentiation in correlation with IRES activation. Expression of Apc5 in differentiated cells abolished IRES activation. This is the first report implying an additional role for an APC/C subunit, apart from its being part of the APC/C complex.  (+info)

A functional analysis reveals dependence on the anaphase-promoting complex for prolonged life span in yeast. (6/18)

Defects in anaphase-promoting complex (APC) activity, which regulates mitotic progression and chromatin assembly, results in genomic instability, a hallmark of premature aging and cancer. We investigated whether APC-dependent genomic stability affects aging and life span in yeast. Utilizing replicative and chronological aging assays, the APC was shown to promote longevity. Multicopy expression of genes encoding Snf1p (MIG1) and PKA (PDE2) aging-pathway components suppressed apc5CA phenotypes, suggesting their involvement in APC-dependent longevity. While it is known that PKA inhibits APC activity and reduces life span, a link between the Snf1p-inhibited Mig1p transcriptional modulator and the APC is novel. Our mutant analysis supports a model in which Snf1p promotes extended life span by inhibiting the negative influence of Mig1p on the APC. Consistent with this, we found that increased MIG1 expression reduced replicative life span, whereas mig1Delta mutations suppressed the apc5CA chronological aging defect. Furthermore, Mig1p and Mig2p activate APC gene transcription, particularly on glycerol, and mig2Delta, but not mig1Delta, confers a prolonged replicative life span in both APC5 and acp5CA cells. However, glucose repression of APC genes was Mig1p and Mig2p independent, indicating the presence of an uncharacterized factor. Therefore, we propose that APC-dependent genomic stability is linked to prolonged longevity by the antagonistic regulation of the PKA and Snf1p pathways.  (+info)

Contribution of CAF-I to anaphase-promoting-complex-mediated mitotic chromatin assembly in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (7/18)

The anaphase-promoting complex (APC) is required for mitotic progression and genomic stability. Recently, we demonstrated that the APC is also required for mitotic chromatin assembly and longevity. Here, we investigated the role the APC plays in chromatin assembly. We show that apc5(CA) mutations genetically interact with the CAF-I genes as well as ASF1, HIR1, and HIR2. When present in multiple copies, the individual CAF-I genes, CAC1, CAC2, and MSI1, suppress apc5(CA) phenotypes in a CAF-1- and Asf1p-independent manner. CAF-I and the APC functionally overlap, as cac1delta cac2delta msi1delta (caf1delta) cells expressing apc5(CA) exhibit a phenotype more severe than that of apc5(CA) or caf1delta. The Ts- phenotypes observed in apc5(CA) and apc5(CA) caf mutants may be rooted in compromised histone metabolism, as coexpression of histones H3 and H4 suppressed the Ts- defects. Synthetic genetic interactions were also observed in apc5(CA) asf1delta cells. Furthermore, increased expression of genes encoding Asf1p, Hir1p, and Hir2p suppressed the apc5(CA) Ts- defect in a CAF-I-dependent manner. Together, these results suggest the existence of a complex molecular mechanism controlling APC-dependent chromatin assembly. Our data suggest the APC functions with the individual CAF-I subunits, Asf1p, and the Hir1p and Hir2p proteins. However, Asf1p and an intact CAF-I complex are dispensable for CAF-I subunit suppression, whereas CAF-I is necessary for ASF1, HIR1, and HIR2 suppression of apc5(CA) phenotypes. We discuss the implications of our observations.  (+info)

An architectural map of the anaphase-promoting complex. (8/18)

The anaphase-promoting complex or cyclosome (APC) is an unusually complicated ubiquitin ligase, composed of 13 core subunits and either of two loosely associated regulatory subunits, Cdc20 and Cdh1. We analyzed the architecture of the APC using a recently constructed budding yeast strain that is viable in the absence of normally essential APC subunits. We found that the largest subunit, Apc1, serves as a scaffold that associates independently with two separable subcomplexes, one that contains Apc2 (Cullin), Apc11 (RING), and Doc1/Apc10, and another that contains the three TPR subunits (Cdc27, Cdc16, and Cdc23). We found that the three TPR subunits display a sequential binding dependency, with Cdc27 the most peripheral, Cdc23 the most internal, and Cdc16 between. Apc4, Apc5, Cdc23, and Apc1 associate interdependently, such that loss of any one subunit greatly reduces binding between the remaining three. Intriguingly, the cullin and TPR subunits both contribute to the binding of Cdh1 to the APC. Enzymatic assays performed with APC purified from strains lacking each of the essential subunits revealed that only cdc27Delta complexes retain detectable activity in the presence of Cdh1. This residual activity depends on the C-box domain of Cdh1, but not on the C-terminal IR domain, suggesting that the C-box mediates a productive interaction with an APC subunit other than Cdc27. We have also found that the IR domain of Cdc20 is dispensable for viability, suggesting that Cdc20 can activate the APC through another domain. We have provided an updated model for the subunit architecture of the APC.  (+info)

  • Although the role of Apc1 as an APC/C scaffolding subunit has been characterized, its specific functions in contributing toward APC/C catalytic activity are not fully understood. (icr.ac.uk)
  • A cryo-EM structure of an APC/C-Cdh1 complex with Apc1(WD40) deleted showed that the mutant APC/C is locked into an inactive conformation in which the UbcH10-binding site of the catalytic module is inaccessible. (icr.ac.uk)
  • Our data show that Apc1(WD40) is required to mediate the coactivator-induced conformational change of the APC/C that is responsible for stimulating APC/C catalytic activity by promoting UbcH10 binding. (icr.ac.uk)
  • Of these, 32 sites are clustered in parts of Apc1 and the tetratricopeptide repeat (TPR) subunits Cdc27, Cdc16, Cdc23 and Apc7. (embopress.org)
  • Mutations at the complex interface impair mRNA deadenylation in mammalian cell extracts, suggesting that the GW182-PABC interaction contributes to microRNA-mediated gene silencing. (genes2cognition.org)
  • The large complexes involved in transcription (polymerases and transcription factors) and translation (ribosomes) must be tightly regulated to allow the control of gene expression. (portlandpress.com)
  • Over the analysed species, the composition of most complexes was highly flexible and only 25% of all genes were never lost. (beds.ac.uk)
  • These evolutionary events affecting genes coding for units in human protein complexes showed a significantly different phylogenetic pattern compared to randomly selected genes. (beds.ac.uk)
