An unusual and aggressive tumor of germ-cell origin that reproduces the extraembryonic structures of the early embryo. It is the most common malignant germ cell tumor found in children. It is characterized by a labyrinthine glandular pattern of flat epithelial cells and rounded papillary processes with a central capillary (Schiller-Duval body). The tumor is rarely bilateral. Before the use of combination chemotherapy, the tumor was almost invariably fatal. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1189)
A rare tumor of the female genital tract, most often the ovary, formerly considered to be derived from mesonephric rests. Two varieties are recognized: (1) clear cell carcinoma, so called because of its histologic resemblance to renal cell carcinoma, and now considered to be of muellerian duct derivation and (2) an embryonal tumor (called also ENDODERMAL SINUS TUMOR and yolk sac tumor), occurring chiefly in children. The latter variety may also arise in the testis. (Dorland, 27th ed)

It is the counterpart of the classical seminoma of the testis, to which it is both grossly and histologically identical. Dysgerminomas comprise 16% of all germ cell tumors but are rare before the age of 10, although nearly 50% occur before the age of 20. They are generally considered of low-grade malignancy but may spread if the tumor extends through its capsule and involves lymph nodes or blood vessels.

A computational screen for methylation guide snoRNAs in yeast. (1/2190)

Small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) are required for ribose 2'-O-methylation of eukaryotic ribosomal RNA. Many of the genes for this snoRNA family have remained unidentified in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, despite the availability of a complete genome sequence. Probabilistic modeling methods akin to those used in speech recognition and computational linguistics were used to computationally screen the yeast genome and identify 22 methylation guide snoRNAs, snR50 to snR71. Gene disruptions and other experimental characterization confirmed their methylation guide function. In total, 51 of the 55 ribose methylated sites in yeast ribosomal RNA were assigned to 41 different guide snoRNAs.  (+info)

Differential transcriptional activity associated with chromatin configuration in fully grown mouse germinal vesicle oocytes. (2/2190)

It was previously shown that fully grown ovarian germinal vesicle (GV) oocytes of adult mice exhibit several nuclear configurations that differ essentially by the presence or absence of a ring of condensed chromatin around the nucleolus. These configurations have been termed, respectively, SN (surrounded nucleolus) and NSN (nonsurrounded nucleolus). Work from our and other laboratories has revealed ultrastructural and functional differences between these two configurations. The aims of the present study were 1) to analyze the equilibrium between the SN and the NSN population as a function of the age of the mice and the time after hCG-induced ovulation and 2) to study the polymerase I (pol I)- and polymerase II (pol II)-dependent transcription in both types of oocytes through the detection of bromouridine incorporated into nascent RNA. We show 1) that ovarian GV oocytes exhibiting the SN-type configuration can be found as soon as 17 days after birth in the C57/CBA mouse strain and 2) that the SN:NSN ratio of ovarian GV oocytes is very low just after hCG-induced ovulation and then increases progressively with the time after ovulation. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the SN configuration correlates strictly with the arrest of both pol I- and pol II-dependent transcription in mice at any age. Finally, we show that ribosomal genes are located at the outer periphery of the nucleolus in the NSN configuration and that pol I-dependent perinucleolar transcription sites correspond to specific ultrastructural features of the nucleolus. Altogether, these results provide clear-cut criteria delineating transcriptionally active GV oocytes from those that are inactive, and confirm that the SN-type configuration is mostly present in preovulatory oocytes.  (+info)

Onset of nucleolar and extranucleolar transcription and expression of fibrillarin in macaque embryos developing in vitro. (3/2190)

Specific aims were to characterize the onset of nucleolar and extranucleolar transcription and expression of the nucleolar protein fibrillarin during preimplantation development in vitro in macaque embryos using autoradiographic and immunocytochemical techniques. Autoradiography was performed on whole embryos cultured with [3H]uridine for assessment of nucleolar (rRNA) and extranucleolar (mRNA) transcription. Expression of fibrillarin was immunocytochemically assessed in whole embryos using a primary antibody against fibrillarin and a fluorescein isothiocyanate-conjugated secondary antibody. Extranucleolar incorporation of [3H]uridine was first detected in 2-cell embryos cultured 6-10 h with [3H]uridine. Culture with alpha-amanitin prevented incorporation of label in 2-cell embryos, and treatment with ribonuclease reduced the signal to background levels, indicating that [3H]uridine was incorporated into mRNA and not rRNA or DNA. Nucleolar incorporation of [3H]uridine was not evident in pronucleate-stage or 2- to 5-cell embryos, but it was detected in one 6-cell embryo and in all 8-cell to blastocyst-stage embryos. Fibrillarin was first expressed in some 6- to 7-cell embryos, but it was consistently expressed in all 8-cell embryos. Fibrillarin was localized to the perimeter of the nucleolar precursor bodies, forming a ring that completely encapsulated these structures. Fibrillarin was not expressed in 8- to 16-cell embryos cultured with alpha-amanitin, indicating that it is transcribed, rather than recruited, at the 8-cell stage. In conclusion, in in vitro-fertilized macaque embryos developing in vitro, extranucleolar synthesis of mRNA is initiated at the 2-cell stage while the onset of nucleolar transcription occurs at the 6- to 8-cell stage, coincident with expression of fibrillarin.  (+info)

Structure and functions of nucleolin. (4/2190)

Nucleolin is an abundant protein of the nucleolus. Nucleolar proteins structurally related to nucleolin are found in organisms ranging from yeast to plants and mammals. The association of several structural domains in nucleolin allows the interaction of nucleolin with different proteins and RNA sequences. Nucleolin has been implicated in chromatin structure, rDNA transcription, rRNA maturation, ribosome assembly and nucleo-cytoplasmic transport. Studies of nucleolin over the last 25 years have revealed a fascinating role for nucleolin in ribosome biogenesis. The involvement of nucleolin at multiple steps of this biosynthetic pathway suggests that it could play a key role in this highly integrated process.  (+info)

Gene expression and chromatin organization during mouse oocyte growth. (5/2190)

Mouse oocytes can be classified according to their chromatin organization and the presence [surrounded nucleolus (SN) oocytes] or absence [nonsurrounded nucleolus (NSN) oocytes] of a ring of Hoechst-positive chromatin around the nucleolus. Following fertilization only SN oocytes are able to develop beyond the two-cell stage. These studies indicate a correlation between SN and NSN chromatin organization and the developmental competence of the female gamete, which may depend on gene expression. In the present study, we have used the HSP70.1Luc transgene (murine HSP70.1 promoter + reporter gene firefly luciferase) to analyze gene expression in oocytes isolated from ovaries of 2-day- to 13-week-old females. Luciferase was assayed on oocytes after classification as SN or NSN type. Our data show that SN oocytes always exhibit a higher level of luciferase activity, demonstrating a higher gene expression in this category. Only after meiotic resumption, metaphase II oocytes derived from NSN or SN oocytes acquire the same level of transgene expression. We suggest that the limited availability of transcripts and corresponding proteins, excluded from the cytoplasm until GVBD in NSN oocytes, could explain why these oocytes have a lower ability to sustain embryonic development beyond the two-cell stage at which major zygotic transcription occurs. With this study we have furthered our knowledge of epigenetic regulation of gene expression in oogenesis.  (+info)

Nuclear and nucleolar targeting of human ribosomal protein S25: common features shared with HIV-1 regulatory proteins. (6/2190)

The nuclear and nucleolar targeting properties of human ribosomal protein S25 (RPS25) were analysed by the expression of epitope-tagged RPS25 cDNAs in Cos-1 cells. The tagged RPS25 was localized to the cell nucleus, with a strong predominance in the nucleolus. At the amino terminus of RPS25, two stretches of highly basic residues juxtapose. This configuration shares common features with the nucleolar targeting signals (NOS) of lentiviral RNA-binding transactivators, including human immunodeficiency viruses' (HIV) Rev proteins. Deletion and site-directed mutational analyses demonstrated that the first NOS-like stretch is dispensable for both nuclear and nucleolar localization of RPS25, and that the nuclear targeting signal is located within the second NOS-like stretch. It has also been suggested that a set of continuous basic residues and the total number of basic residues should be required for nucleolar targeting. Signal-mediated nuclear/nucleolar targeting was further characterized by the construction and expression of a variety of chimeric constructs, utilizing three different backbones with RPS25 cDNA fragments. Immunofluorescence analyses demonstrated a 17 residue peptide of RPS25 as a potential nuclear/nucleolar targeting signal. The identified peptide signal may belong to a putative subclass of NOS, characterized by compact structure, together with lentiviral RNA-binding transactivators.  (+info)

Expression of the transcriptional repressor protein Kid-1 leads to the disintegration of the nucleolus. (7/2190)

The rat Kid-1 gene codes for a 66-kDa protein with KRAB domains at the NH2 terminus and two Cys2His2-zinc finger clusters of four and nine zinc fingers at the COOH terminus. It was the first KRAB-zinc finger protein for which a transcriptional repressor activity was demonstrated. Subsequently, the KRAB-A domain was identified as a widespread transcriptional repressor motif. We now present a biochemical and functional analysis of the Kid-1 protein in transfected cells. The full-length Kid-1 protein is targeted to the nucleolus and adheres tightly to as yet undefined nucleolar structures, leading eventually to the disintegration of the nucleolus. The tight adherence and nucleolar distribution can be attributed to the larger zinc finger cluster, whereas the KRAB-A domain is responsible for the nucleolar fragmentation. Upon disintegration of the nucleolus, the nucleolar transcription factor upstream binding factor disappears from the nucleolar fragments. In the absence of Kid-1, the KRIP-1 protein, which represents the natural interacting partner of zinc finger proteins with a KRAB-A domain, is homogeneously distributed in the nucleus, whereas coexpression of Kid-1 leads to a shift of KRIP-1 into the nucleolus. Nucleolar run-ons demonstrate that rDNA transcription is shut off in the nucleolar fragments. Our data demonstrate the functional diversity of the KRAB and zinc finger domains of Kid-1 and provide new functional insights into the regulation of the nucleolar structure.  (+info)

The beta4 integrin interactor p27(BBP/eIF6) is an essential nuclear matrix protein involved in 60S ribosomal subunit assembly. (8/2190)

p27(BBP/eIF6) is an evolutionarily conserved protein that was originally identified as p27(BBP), an interactor of the cytoplasmic domain of integrin beta4 and, independently, as the putative translation initiation factor eIF6. To establish the in vivo function of p27(BBP/eIF6), its topographical distribution was investigated in mammalian cells and the effects of disrupting the corresponding gene was studied in the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. In epithelial cells containing beta4 integrin, p27(BBP/eIF6) is present in the cytoplasm and enriched at hemidesmosomes with a pattern similar to that of beta4 integrin. Surprisingly, in the absence and in the presence of the beta4 integrin subunit, p27(BBP/eIF6) is in the nucleolus and associated with the nuclear matrix. Deletion of the IIH S. cerevisiae gene, encoding the yeast p27(BBP/eIF6) homologue, is lethal, and depletion of the corresponding gene product is associated with a dramatic decrease of the level of free ribosomal 60S subunit. Furthermore, human p27(BBP/eIF6) can rescue the lethal effect of the iihDelta yeast mutation. The data obtained in vivo suggest an evolutionarily conserved function of p27(BBP/eIF6) in ribosome biogenesis or assembly rather than in translation. A further function related to the beta4 integrin subunit may have evolved specifically in higher eukaryotic cells.  (+info)

In ATT, a human autoimmune serum, we found anti-nucleolar antibodies that recognized nucleolar antigens confined to a single nucleolar compartment, the dense fibrillar component (DFC). We localized these antigens by immunoelectron microscopy in DFC of HeLa cell nucleoli both on Lowicryl sections and cryoultrathin sections without embedding. The antigens were solubilized by incubation with 2M NaCl but not by RNase or DNase treatment. The ATT serum crossreacted with rat liver nucleoli and PtK1 cell nucleoli in which immunofluorescence labelling displayed a clumpy pattern. During mitosis, the antigens dispersed in the cytoplasm until late telophase, when they gathered in the prenucleolar bodies. In human peripheral lymphocytes, or HeLa cells treated with actinomycin D, the antigens were still present but the fluorescence intensity decreased. By immunoblotting using human nuclear extracts, the ATT serum bound to a 116,000 Mr protein at dilutions up to 1:2000. The reactivity of this band diminished ...

In Sertoli ... [more ▼]. The precise distribution of DNA and RNA within the human Sertoli cell nucleolus has been investigated, at the ultrastructural level, by cytochemical and molecular immunocytochemical techniques. In Sertoli cells, the nucleolar components show a typical spatial distribution. The fibrillar centres are not surrounded by a layer of dense fibrillar component, but come in contact only with strands of dense fibrillar component. These fibrillar parts of strands are the extensions of granular strands connected to a large granular mass. These strands delimit numerous nucleolar interstices in which chromatin fibres are clearly obvious. Using the in situ terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase/immunogold procedure for detecting DNA, we find ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Fractions of HeLa DNA differing in their content of guanine + cytosine. AU - Schildkraut, Carl L.. AU - Maio, Joseph J.. PY - 1969/12/14. Y1 - 1969/12/14. N2 - DNA isolated from preparations of HeLa cell nucleoli has been fractionated into six components which band in CsCl at densities corresponding to their G + C contents according to the relation: ρ{variant} = 0.98 (G + C) + 1.659, where ρ{variant} refers to buoyant density and (G + C) to the average mole fraction of guanine + cytosine. This nucleolar DNA is significantly enriched with respect to two satellite bands: a light satellite (ρ{variant} = 1.686 g/ml.) and a heavy satellite (ρ{variant} = 1.712 g/ml.). In an alkaline CsCl density gradient, the light satellite DNA can be separated into two complementary strands, as demonstrated by base composition analysis..

The nature and localization of DNA contained in the fibrillar centres and the dense fibrillar component (the fibrillar complex) in the nucleoli, was studied in human LEP cells, Sertoli cells, spermatogonia A and in mitotic chromosomes of stimulated lymphocytes. A novel procedure for isolating the intact fibrillar complex from LEP cells was used; the complex contains DNA that hybridizes to secondary constrictions of mitotic chromosomes and to 28 S rDNA sequences, on Southern blots. Electron microscopic DNA-DNA in situ hybridization was performed, with (a) a probe prepared from DNA extracted from the fibrillar complex of LEP cells, (b) a probe for human total genomic DNA, and (c) a probe for the transcribed part of human rDNA. On the basis of the results obtained we conclude that the ribosomal RNA genes in human Sertoli cells and spermatogonia A are predominantly associated with the dense fibrillar component, including the border region between fibrillar centres and the dense fibrillar component. ...
The higher proliferation rate of cancer cells requires an increased rate of protein synthesis. Thus, cancer cells often show increased rates of ribosomal DNA (rDNA) transcription and have more ribosomes and larger nucleoli, which are nuclear structures that function in ribosome biogenesis. Neumüller et al. identified genes in yeast that, when ablated, resulted in smaller or larger nucleoli. A similar analysis in Drosophila enabled the identification of evolutionarily conserved molecular complexes that increase or decrease nucleolar size when the complex constituents were targeted by RNA interference. Understanding how cells regulate rDNA transcription could provide new therapeutic avenues for interfering with the unrestricted growth that occurs in cancer.. ...
The reconstruction of the nucleolus after mitosis was analyzed by electron microscopy in cultured mammalian (L929) cells in which nucleolar RNA synthesis was inhibited for a 3 h period either after or before mitosis. When synchronized mitotic cells were plated into a concentration of actinomycin D sufficient to block nucleolar RNA synthesis preferentially, nucleoli were formed at telophase as usual. 3 h after mitosis, these nucleoli had fibrillar and particulate components and possessed the segregated appearance characteristic of nucleoli of actinomycin D-treated cells. Cells in which actinomycin D was present for the last 3 h preceding mitosis did not form nucleoli by 3 h after mitosis though small fibrillar prenucleolar bodies were detectable at this time. These bodies subsequently grew in size and eventually acquired a particulate component. It took about a full cell cycle before nucleoli of these cells were completely normal in appearance. Thus, nucleolar RNA synthesis after mitosis is not ...
Confocal microscopy and in situ hybridization procedures have led to enormous progress in the visualization of the spatial organization and dynamics of transcription and RNA‐processing machinery in eukaryotic cells. It is well established that the nucleus is a highly organized structure composed of many different territories, subdomains and organelles (Lamond and Earnshaw, 1998). A state‐of‐the‐art account of the nuclear architecture of plant cells was given by P.Shaw (John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK). Mapping of the RNA polymerase I transcription and rRNA processing sites, using different pre‐rRNA, snoRNA and nucleolar protein probes, indicates that the plant cell nucleolus is organized as a series of concentric layers in which transcription and successive rRNA processing reactions occur. As in vertebrate cells, plant cells contain coiled bodies (CBs), nuclear organelles of still poorly defined function. Since CB components include several small RNAs, and also proteins related to ...
The rat liver nucleolus, after fragmentation induced by ethionine treatment, has been found to undergo complete reformation by adenine in the presence of a dose of cycloheximide sufficient to cause inhibition of protein synthesis by 90-95%. In contrast, actinomycin D given along with adenine was followed by the appearance of a small compact mass containing only the fibrillar component with no evident granules. This structure resembled pseudonucleoli seen in the anucleolate mutant of Xenopus laevis or in certain early stages of amphibian oocytes. Actinomycin D administered 2 hr after adenine induced a segregation of the fibrillar and granular components of nucleoli similar to that induced in the normal nucleolus. The implications of these findings in relation to nucleolar organization are briefly discussed.. ...
Previous reports have shown that Wee1 degradation can be suppressed by activation of the G2/M checkpoint in the presence of DNA damage (12) that also causes nucleolar disruption (6). Therefore, it is possible that depletion of NOL11, TIF-IA, or UBF induces DNA damage, which in turn causes nucleolar disruption as well as Wee1 accumulation via G2/M checkpoint activation. To test this hypothesis, we examined the levels of Chk1 phosphorylation at Ser317 (Chk1-pS317), a marker of G2/M checkpoint activation, and γH2A.X, a marker of DNA double-strand breaks. The Chk1-pS317 signal was undetectable for cells with nucleolar disruption caused by depletion of NOL11, TIF-IA, or UBF, whereas the signal was clear for cells treated with etoposide, which induces DNA damage and G2/M checkpoint activation (fig. S7A). Furthermore, NOL11, TIF-IA, or UBF depletion caused nucleolar disruption but did not increase γH2A.X signal, even though etoposide treatment increased it (fig. S7B). In addition, neither the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Nopp 140 shuttles on tracks between nucleolus and cytoplasm. AU - Thomas Meier, U.. AU - Blobel, Günter. PY - 1992/7/10. Y1 - 1992/7/10. N2 - Nopp140 is a nucleolar phosphoprotein of 140 kd that we originally identified and purified as a nuclear localization signal (NLS)-binding protein. Molecular characterization revealed a 10-fold repeated motif of highly conserved acidic serine clusters that contain an abundance of phosphorylation consensus sites for casein kinase II (CK II). Indeed, Nopp140 is one of the most phosphoryaated proteins in the cell, and NLS binding was dependent on phosphorylation. Nopp140 was shown to shuttle between the nucleolus and the cytoplasm. Shuttling is likely to proceed on tracks that were revealed by immunoelectron microscopy. These tracks extend from the dense fibrillar component of the nucleolus across the nucleoplasm to some nuclear pore complexes. We suggest that Nopp140 functions as a chaperone for import into and/or export from the ...

The NF-κB transcription factor is one of the most important regulators of the cellular life/death balance and its aberrant activation is associated with cancer ( 4). Therefore, identifying mechanisms for switching off aberrant NF-κB activity could have a major therapeutic benefit. Here, we reveal a novel pathway for down-regulating NF-κB transcriptional activity and inducing apoptosis of colon cancer cells that involves activation of the p38 pathway, inhibition of the cyclin D1/CDK4 kinase complex, and consequent nucleolar targeting of RelA. These findings contribute to our knowledge of the complexities of NF-κB signaling. Furthermore, these findings have considerable relevance to understanding the mechanisms of chemoprevention and cancer therapeutics.. The data presented here provide evidence that p38-mediated inhibition of cyclin D1/CDK4 stimulates the NF-κB pathway to induce nucleolar sequestration of RelA. This conclusion is based on the following findings. First, p38 was rapidly ...

This family represents the N-terminal region of Pescadillo. Pescadillo protein localises to distinct substructures of the interphase nucleus including nucleoli, the site of ribosome biogenesis. During mitosis pescadillo closely associates with the periphery of metaphase chromosomes and by late anaphase is associated with nucleolus-derived foci and prenucleolar bodies. Blastomeres in mouse embryos lacking pescadillo arrest at morula stages of development, the nucleoli fail to differentiate and accumulation of ribosomes is inhibited. It has been proposed that in mammalian cells pescadillo is essential for ribosome biogenesis and nucleologenesis and that disruption to its function results in cell cycle arrest [1]. This family is often found in conjunction with a PF00533 domain. ...
The precise location of ribosomal RNA (rRNA) synthesis within the nucleolus is the subject of recent controversy; some investigators have detected nascent RNA in the dense fibrillar components (DFCs) while others have localized transcription to the f
Author Summary Eukaryotic genomes are compartmentalized within nuclei such that physiological events, including transcription and DNA replication, can efficiently occur. The mechanisms that regulate this organization represent an exciting, and equally enigmatic, subject of research. In mammals, the identification of elements that influence these associations has been impeded by the complex nature of the genomes. Here, we report the identification and characterization of such an element. We demonstrate that the integration of a 5S rDNA gene, a 119 base pair noncoding RNA transcribed by RNA polymerase III, into a new genomic location can significantly influence the association of the host region with the nucleolus. This positioning has drastic, inhibitory effects on the transcription of a neighboring protein coding gene transcribed by RNA polymerase II, demonstrating a functional relationship between localization and gene expression. We also provide data that suggest this may be an endogenous phenomenon,
In the interphase cell nucleus, the ribosomal genes are located in the fibrillar centers and in the associated dense fibrillar component of the nucleolus (Hernandez-Verdun, 1983; 1986; Goessens,...

The nucleolus is the cellular organelle that manufactures ribosomes and plays a part in many vital process including cell-cycle regulation and senescence. Using the latest proteomics technologies, Andersen et al. have generated a comprehensive list of nucleolar proteins. Over 690 proteins were found in the in the nucleolar preparation, including Werners syndrome helicase and various regulatory proteins. The technology also allows analysis of changes in relative levels of proteins as a result of perturbing growth conditions with drugs. This paints a picture of a dynamic proteome: in effect there may be no definitive proteome for the nucleolus or any other organelle, rather there is a series of overlapping proteomes corresponding to different cell states. The nucleolus is a key organelle that coordinates the synthesis and assembly of ribosomal subunits and forms in the nucleus around the repeated ribosomal gene clusters. Because the production of ribosomes is a major metabolic activity, the function of
The interphase nucleus exists as a highly dynamic system, the physical properties of which have functional importance in gene regulation. Not only can gene expression be influenced by the local sequence context, but also by the architecture of the nucleus in three-dimensions (3D), and by the interactions between these levels via chromatin modifications. A challenging task is to resolve the complex interplay between sequence- and genome structure-based control mechanisms. Here, we created a collection of 277 Arabidopsis lines that allow the visual tracking of individual loci in living plants while comparing gene expression potential at these locations, via an identical reporter cassette. Our studies revealed regional gene silencing near a heterochromatin island, via DNA methylation, that is correlated with mobility constraint and nucleolar association. We also found an example of nucleolar association that does not correlate with gene suppression, suggesting that distinct mechanisms exist that ...
Location of the nucleolar ribosomal chromatin at telophase: as the nucleolus becomes active the ribosomal chromatin and associated ribonucleoprotein transcripts compose the more peripherally located dense fibrillar component
The present study clearly demonstrates that DOX-induced acute cardiac toxicity was significantly exacerbated in Mrp1−/− mice. Whereas morphometric analysis of electron micrographs of the heart showed significant damage to the mitochondria and the cytoplasm after DOX treatment, consistent with previous findings (Yen et al., 1996), this injury was not different in the two genotypes. In contrast, the nucleus showed significantly more damage after DOX treatment of Mrp1−/− mice, with fragmentation of the nucleolus, segregation of granular and fibrillar components, and condensation of nucleoli with compacted chromatin. The nucleolus is the primary site of transcription, assembly, and processing of cellular RNA (Antoniali et al., 2014), with a tripartite organization that reflects the different steps of ribosomal biogenesis. RNA polymerase I transcription starts in the fibrillar center, with the dense fibrillary component the site of initial stages of pre-rRNA processing and a granular ...
Viruses are suspected of significant roles in autoimmune diseases but the mechanisms are unclear. We get some insight by considering demands a virus places on host cells. Viruses require production of their own proteins, RNA and/or DNA, but also production of additional cellular machinery, such as ribosomes, to handle the increased demands. Since the nucleolus is a major site of RNA processing and ribonucleoprotein assembly, nucleoli are targeted by viruses, directly when viral RNA and proteins enter the nucleolus and indirectly when viruses induce increased expression of cellular polyamine genes. Polyamines are at high levels in nucleoli to assist in RNA folding. The size and activity of nucleoli increase directly with increases in polyamines. Nucleolar expansion due to abnormal increases in polyamines could disrupt nearby chromatin, such as the inactive X chromosome, leading to expression of previously sequestered DNA. Sudden expression of a large concentration of Alu elements from the disrupted
The present invention is concerned with granular components comprising an enzyme, specified polymeric binding material, and a mixture of coating components. The granular components are particularly suitable for use in detergent compositions.
The nucleus in plants and animals is a highly structured organelle containing several well-defined subregions or suborganelles. These include the nucleolus, interphase chromosome territories and coiled bodies. We have visualized transcription sites in plants at both light- and electron-microscopy level by the incorporation of BrUTP. In the nucleolus many dispersed foci are revealed within the dense fibrillar component, each of which probably corresponds to a single gene copy. In the nucleoplasm there are also many dispersed foci of transcription, but not enough to correspond to one site per transcribed gene. We have shown that in wheat, and probably many other plant species, interphase chromosome territories are organized in a very regular way, with all the chromosomes in the Rabl configuration, all the centromeres clustered at the nuclear membrane and all the telomeres located at the nuclear membrane on the opposite side of the nucleus. However, despite this regular, polarized structure, there is no
The polarity is related to the number of cytoplasmic processes projecting from the perikaryon.

To investigate the function of the nucleolar protein Nop2p in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we constructed a strain in which NOP2 is under the control of a repressible promoter. Repression of NOP2 expression lengthens the doubling time of this strain about fivefold and reduces steady-state levels of 60S ribosomal subunits, 80S ribosomes, and polysomes. Levels of 40S subunits increase as the free pool of 60S subunits is reduced. Nop2p depletion impairs processing of the 35S pre-rRNA and inhibits processing of 27S pre-rRNA, which results in lower steady-state levels of 25S rRNA and 5.8S rRNA. Processing of 20S pre-rRNA to 18S rRNA is not significantly affected. Processing at sites A2, A3, B1L, and B1S and the generation of 5 termini of different pre-rRNA intermediates appear to be normal after Nop2p depletion. Sequence comparisons suggest that Nop2p may function as a methyltransferase. 2-O-ribose methylation of the conserved site UmGm psi UC2922 is known to take place during processing of 27S ...

[more ▼]. In order to investigate the DNA localization within Ehrlich tumor cell nucleoli during mitosis, two recent immunocytochemical methods using either an anti-DNA or an anti-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) monoclonal antibody have been applied. In both cases, the immunogold labeling has been performed on ultrathin sections of cells embedded either in Lowicryl K4M or in Epon, respectively. Identical results are observed with both immunocytochemical approaches. In the interphase nucleolus, besides the labeling of the perinucleolar chromatin shell and of its intranucleolar invaginations which penetrate into the nucleolar body and often terminate at the fibrillar centers, a few gold particles are also preferentially found towards the peripheral ...

Digestive organs result from the endoderm. subunit (SSU) processome. The nucleolus is definitely a subnuclear structure that exhibits dynamic morphological changes during cell cycle. The nucleolus serves as the site for rRNA biosynthesis, processing and maturation, and also as the site for assembly of ribosome large and small subunit [15]. Rabbit Polyclonal to UBE2T Therefore, disruption of the nucleolus function is normally detrimental to a cell [15]. Recently, evidence has shown that some nucleolar factors are also essential for organogenesis during embryogenesis. For example, loss-of-function of confers small eyes and hypoplastic digestive organs [16] and mutation leads to neurodegeneration [17] in zebrafish. In this work, we sought to address the question how Def, as a nucleolar factor, regulates organogenesis of digestive organs in zebrafish. We focused on a specific question: can Defs function in the liver be uncoupled from that in the exocrine pancreas and intestine? Does Def regulate ...
Rabbit antibodies to RNA polymerase I from a rat hepatoma have been used to localize the enzyme in a variety of cells at the light and electron microscopic level. In interphase cells the immunofluorescence pattern indicated that polymerase I is contained exclusively within the nucleolus. That this fluorescence, which appeared punctated rather than uniform, represented transcriptional complexes of RNA polymerase I and rRNA genes was suggested by the observation that it was enhanced in regenerating liver and in a hepatoma and was markedly diminished in cells treated with actinomycin D. Electron microscopic immunolocalization using gold-coupled second antibodies showed that transcribed rRNA genes are located in, and probably confined to, the fibrillar centers of the nucleolus. In contrast, the surrounding dense fibrillar component, previously thought to be the site of nascent pre-rRNA, did not contain detectable amounts of polymerase I. During mitosis, polymerase I molecules were detected by ...

Nucleostemin, a protein found in the nucleoli of highly proliferative cells (such as stem cells and some cancer cell lines), may help regulate cell proliferation. Tsai and McKay, who previously identified nucleostemin, have now investigated the mechanisms whereby it is targeted to the nucleolus. The authors used fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) and inverse FRAP (iFRAP) to show that nucleostemin tagged with green fluorescent protein shuttled rapidly and bidirectionally between the nucleolus and the nucleoplasm of cultured CHO and U2 OS cells. Mutation of a GTP-binding motif (G1) that blocked the ability of nucleostemin to bind GTP also blocked its nucleolar localization, as did deletion of an N-terminal basic (B) domain. FRAP, together with further mutational analysis, indicated that GTP binding relieved the inhibitory action of a domain between G1 and the C terminal on nucleolar localization of the B domain and was required for long-term retention of nucleostemin in the nucleus. ...
NOL7 is a candidate tumor suppressor that localizes to a chromosomal region 6p23. This locus is frequently lost in a number of malignancies, and consistent loss of NOL7 through loss of heterozygosity and decreased mRNA and protein expression has been observed in tumors and cell lines. Reintroduction of NOL7 into cells resulted in significant suppression of in vivo tumor growth and modulation of the angiogenic phenotype. Further, NOL7 was observed to localize to the nucleus and nucleolus of cells. However, the mechanisms regulating its subcellular localization have not been elucidated. An in vitro import assay demonstrated that NOL7 requires cytosolic machinery for active nuclear transport. Using sequence homology and prediction algorithms, four putative nuclear localization signals (NLSs) were identified. NOL7 deletion constructs and cytoplasmic pyruvate kinase (PK) fusion proteins confirmed the functionality of three of these NLSs. Site-directed mutagenesis of PK fusions and full-length NOL7 defined
Tau is known for its pathological role in neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimers disease (AD) and other tauopathies. Tau is found in many subcellular compartments such as the cytosol and the nucleus. Although its normal role in microtubule binding is well established, its nuclear role is still unclear. Here, we reveal that tau localises to the nucleolus in undifferentiated and differentiated neuroblastoma cells (SHSY5Y), where it associates with TIP5, a key player in heterochromatin stability and ribosomal DNA (rDNA) transcriptional repression. Immunogold labelling on human brain sample confirms the physiological relevance of this finding by showing tau within the nucleolus colocalises with TIP5. Depletion of tau results in an increase in rDNA transcription with an associated decrease in heterochromatin and DNA methylation, suggesting that under normal conditions tau is involved in silencing of the rDNA. Cellular stress induced by glutamate causes nucleolar stress associated with the
Using antibodies to various nucleolar and ribosomal proteins, we define, by immunolocalization in situ, the distribution of nucleolar proteins in the different morphological nucleolar subcompartments. In the present study we describe the nucleolar localization of a specific ribosomal protein (S1) by immunofluorescence and immunoelectron microscopy using a monoclonal antibody (RS1-105). In immunoblotting experiments, this antibody reacts specifically with the largest and most acidic protein of the small ribosomal subunit (S1) and shows wide interspecies cross-reactivity from amphibia to man. Beside its localization in cytoplasmic ribosomes, this protein is found to be specifically localized in the granular component of the nucleolus and in distinct granular aggregates scattered over the nucleoplasm. This indicates that ribosomal protein S1, in contrast to reports on other ribosomal proteins, is not bound to nascent pre-rRNA transcripts but attaches to preribosomes at later stages of rRNA ...
Focal adhesion kinase (FAK) is a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase that controls cell proliferation and survival downstream of integrin-matrix receptors. However, under deprivation of anchorage, FAK translocates to the nucleus. The nucleolus, a non-membrane structure within the nucleus, is important in the control of ribosome biogenesis, regulates the sequestration of nuclear proteins, and increased nucleolar size is a marker of aggressive tumors. Nucleostemin, a nucleolar-localized protein, acts to modulate cell cycle progression and anchorage-independent cell growth. Although many drugs have low efficacy on tumor cells cultured in suspension, nanomolar small molecule FAK inhibitor (PF-271 or PND-1186) addition can prevent anchorage-independent growth of tumor cells as spheroids through mechanism(s) that remain unresolved. Here, we show that pharmacological FAK inhibitor (FAK-I) treatment or kinase-dead (KD) FAK re-expression analyses reduced breast cancer (MDA-MB-231 and 4T1-L) anchorage-independent ...
Overwhelming evidence indicates that aspirin and related non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have anti-tumour activity and the potential to prevent cancer, particularly colorectal cancer. However, the mechanisms underlying this effect remain hypothetical. Dysregulation of the nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-κB) transcription factor is a common event in many cancer types which contributes to tumour initiation and progression by driving expression of pro-proliferative/anti-apoptotic genes. In this review, we will focus on the current knowledge regarding NSAID effects on the NF-κB signalling pathway in pre-cancerous and cancerous lesions, and the evidence that these effects contribute to the anti-tumour activity of the agents. The nuclear organelle, the nucleolus, is emerging as a central regulator of transcription factor activity and cell growth and death. Nucleolar function is dysregulated in the majority of cancers which promotes cancer growth through direct and indirect mechanisms. Hence, this
Although bystin has been identified as a protein potentially involved in embryo implantation (a process unique to mammals) in humans the bystin gene is evolutionarily conserved from yeast to humans. by RNAi (RNA interference). Pulse-chase analysis of ribosomal RNA processing suggested that bystin knockdown delays processing of 18S ribosomal RNA a component of the 40S subunit. Furthermore this knockdown significantly inhibited cell S(-)-Propranolol HCl proliferation. Our findings suggest that bystin may promote cell proliferation by facilitating ribosome biogenesis specifically in the production of the 40S subunit. Localization of bystin to the nucleolus the site of ribosome biogenesis was blocked by S(-)-Propranolol HCl low concentrations of actinomycin D a reagent that causes nucleolar stress. When bystin was transiently overexpressed in HeLa cells subjected to nucleolar stress nuclear bystin was included in particles different from the nuclear stress granules induced by heat shock. In contrast ...
The bHLH transcription factor Hand1 is essential for placentation and cardiac morphogenesis but how its developmental activity is regulated is largely unknown. We recently showed that Hand1 is sequestered in the nucleoli of rodent trophoblast stem (TS) cells by the I-mfa domain-containing protein HICp40 and that this is associated with their proliferation and continuing self-renewal. However when these cells commit to differentiate into trophoblast giant (TG) cells, Hand1 is phosphorylated by the polo-like kinase Plk4 (Sak) and released into the nucleus to activate downstream target genes. This event underlies the release of Hand1 from the nucleolus and represents the molecular switch that promotes mitotic cell cycle exit and the onset of endoreduplication. In this brief discussion we examine the wider implications of these findings and address some of the unanswered questions that remain.
Metaphase chromosome preparations were made from leukocyte cultures of normal individuals. The cells were fixed in methanol:acetic acid (3:1 v/v), then dropped on cold, wet slides which were air-dried before storage at 4 degrees C. The slides were st
The pharmacologic inhibition of RNA Pol I is becoming a potentially important therapeutic strategy in cancer (7, 19, 23). The therapeutic index using Pol I inhibition relies at least in part on the fact that tumor cells are often found to be in an anabolic state, with higher levels of ribosome biosynthesis than their corresponding normal counterparts (7, 9, 43). A validated assay that can determine whether there is indeed an increase in Pol I activity in routinely obtained tissue specimens, as well as a similarly applicable pharmacodynamic marker of target inhibition, would be a valuable companion diagnostic for such therapeutic trials.. We developed a CISH assay to examine the level of expression of the 5′ETS/45S rRNA gene in routinely processed human clinical tissue FFPE specimens. In contrast to the highly stable 18S/28S rRNA, the 5′ETS region is processed cotranscriptionally and is short-lived, and hence well suited for use as a marker for Pol I transcription activity (17). As of now, we ...
The number of extra-chromosomal nucleoli and their rDNA content were determined during oogenesis in Xenopus laevis. The highly variable number of nucleoli (500 to 2,500) in oocytes of the same stage and from the same female or of different stages or from different females is not a measure of the extent of amplification. In all oocytes examined, a inversely proportional relation was found between the number of nucleoli in an oocyte and their mean rDNA content. These results indicate that there is no variation of the rDNA content of oocytes during oogenesis nor between oocytes of different females. The varying nucleolar numbers found in oocytes result thus from fusion and fission of pre-existing nucleoli. The determination of the rDNA content, in absolute units (35 pg), after amplification which occurs at the beginning of oogenesis, makes it possible to calculate the rDNA content of one nucleolus. This ranged from 0.7.10(-2) pg to 15.10(-2) pg, corresponding to about 500--11,000 cistrons of rDNA. ...
As cells mature, from the most immature or blast cell to the final mature stage, they undergo numerous biochemical, structural and metabolic changes. The cytologic features of cells, as observed on Wrights stained peripheral blood and bone marrow smears, reflect such biochemical and structural developments. The general features of cell differentiation are common to most blood cells. Immature cells have delicate, fine nuclear chromatin which gradually becomes coarsely clumped or condensed. The size of the nucleus decreases; nucleoli are reduced in number or lost completely as in red cells. The nuclear shape which is initially round or oval may become uniquely confirgured as in myeloid cells. Mitotic competence is lost as cells differentiate.. ...
Cell proliferation is a crucial cellular process which influences development. In plants, meristems are formed by actively proliferating cells, in which the main expression of proliferation is the existence of a cell division cycle. Many cell activities are influenced by the cell proliferation status and cell cycle progression, among them ribosome biogenesis, which is morphologically expressed as the nucleolus. The connection is established through nucleolar proteins, which regulate the synthesis and processing of preribosomal precursors and, at the same time, are targets of various cell cycle regulators, such as certain kinases. Nucleolin is one of these nucleolar proteins, whose level increases with cell proliferation and depends on the cell cycle stages. Not only the levels, but also other important features of the protein, such as its distribution in situ in the nucleolus, its phosphorylation and its physiological degradation, depend on these parameters. Furthermore, since the nucleolar ...

Abstract :. Intrinsically disordered proteins and regions (IDPs/IDRs) constitute about one third of protein sequence space in humans and enable complex conformational and functional behaviors that underlie diverse biological processes. IDPs can function in the context of discrete multi-component assemblies but recently have been shown to undergo phase separation for form mesoscale cellular structures such as membraneless organelles and transcriptionally silent regions of chromatin. Due to their heterogeneous and transient conformations, IDPs/IDRs are challenging to characterize at atomic resolution, making it difficult to establish detailed disorder-function relationships. We will discuss our multidisciplinary strategies toward understanding the roles of protein disorder in regulation of apoptosis and cell division, nucleolar structure and function, and interactions with small molecules. A key goal is to illustrate the diversity and uniqueness of disorder-function relationships. ...

Compared with nucleolar proteins, proteins concentrated in splicing speckles have a more complex architecture, with half of the proteins containing two or more recognizable conserved motifs or domains. The domain that occurs most commonly amongst proteins in the splicing speckles is the RNA recognition motif RRM (25/65 proteins) (Table II). This is an abundant motif in the human proteome (http://www.ensembl.org/IPtop500.html). Despite the fact that the nucleolus is also involved in (ribosomal) RNA processing, RRM domains are not that abundant amongst published nucleolar proteins (3/97), but instead a more diverse array of other RNA‐binding motifs (e.g. KH and RGG domains) appears to be utilized by these proteins. Half of the splicing proteins with RRM(s) also contain an RS domain. RS domain‐containing proteins are abundant amongst splicing proteins (21/65) (Mintz et al., 1999; Sutherland et al., 2001). Despite the functional relationship between Cajal bodies and splicing proteins, only one ...

OF CARTILAGE. 19 Nuclei, around which no cells have yet commenced to be de¬ veloped, may be observed in the cytoblastema between the cells in some situations ; for example, a and b. These like¬ wise contain a nucleolus, and are somewhat less than the nuclei in the smaller cells. The above observations furnish us with a complete repre¬ sentation of the development of cartilage-cells, and show the accordance of that process with the development of vegetable- cells, inasmuch as they exhibit the simultaneous presence in the cytoblastema both of simple nuclei, and of cells containing a nucleus of similar shape and size upon the inner surface of their walls, and which may be observed in all stages of tran¬ sition, from such as are scarcely larger than the nucleus they contain, to such as are many times its size. Simple nuclei are first present, developed in the cytoblastema. When these have arrived at a certain size, the cell is formed around and closely encompassing them. The cell gradually ...
