Influence of centriole behavior on the first spindle formation in zygotes of the brown alga Fucus distichus (Fucales, Phaeophyceae). (1/575)

The influence of centrioles, derived from the sperm flagellar basal bodies, and the centrosomal material (MTOCs) on spindle formation in the brown alga Fucus distichus (oogamous) was studied by immunofluorescence microscopy using anti-centrin and anti-beta-tubulin antibodies. In contrast to a bipolar spindle, which is formed after normal fertilization, a multipolar spindle was formed in polyspermic zygote. The number of mitotic poles in polyspermic zygotes was double the number of sperm involved in fertilization. As an anti-centrin staining spot (centrioles) was located at these poles, the multipolar spindles in polyspermic zygotes were produced by the supplementary centrioles. When anucleate egg fragments were fertilized, chromosome condensation and mitosis did not occur in the sperm nucleus. Two anti-centrin staining spots could be detected, microtubules (MTs) radiated from nearby, but the mitotic spindle was never produced. When a single sperm fertilized multinucleate eggs (polygyny), abnormal spindles were also observed. In addition to two mitotic poles containing anti-centrin staining spots, extra mitotic poles without anti-centrin staining spots were also formed, and as a result multipolar spindles were formed. When karyogamy was blocked with colchicine, it became clear that the egg nucleus proceeded independently into mitosis accompanying chromosome condensation. A monoastral spindle could be frequently observed, and in rare cases a barrel-shaped spindle was formed. However, when a sperm nucleus was located near an egg nucleus, the two anti-centrin staining spots shifted to the egg nucleus from the sperm nucleus. In this case, a normal spindle was formed, the egg chromosomes arranged at the equator, and the associated MTs elongated from one pole of the egg spindle toward the sperm chromosomes which were scattered. From these results, it became clear that paternal centrioles derived from the sperm have a crucial role in spindle formation in the brown algae, such as they do during animal fertilization. However, paternal centrioles were not adequate for the functional centrosome during spindle formation. We speculated that centrosomal materials from the egg cytoplasm aggregate around the sperm centrioles and are needed for centrosomal activation.  (+info)

Cell division: The renaissance of the centriole. (2/575)

Centrioles are located at the center of the cytoskeleton and duplicate exactly once per cell cycle. Recent studies suggest that centrioles are required for the organization of a functional centrosome and that centriole assembly requires both gamma- and delta-tubulin.  (+info)

Rab15 mediates an early endocytic event in Chinese hamster ovary cells. (3/575)

Rab GTPases comprise a large family of monomeric proteins that regulate a diverse number of membrane trafficking events, including endocytosis. In this paper, we examine the subcellular distribution and function of the GTPase Rab15. Our biochemical and confocal immunofluorescence studies demonstrate that Rab15 associates with the transferrin receptor, a marker for the early endocytic pathway, but not with Rab7 or the cation-independent mannose 6-phosphate receptor, markers for late endosomal membranes. Furthermore, Rab15 colocalizes with Rab4 and -5 on early/sorting endosomes, as well as Rab11 on pericentriolar recycling endosomes. Consistent with its localization to early endosomal membranes, overexpression of the constitutively active mutant HArab15Q67L reduces receptor-mediated and fluid phase endocytosis. Therefore, our functional studies suggest that Rab15 may function as an inhibitory GTPase in early endocytic trafficking.  (+info)

Components of an SCF ubiquitin ligase localize to the centrosome and regulate the centrosome duplication cycle. (4/575)

Centrosomes organize the mitotic spindle to ensure accurate segregation of the chromosomes in mitosis. The mechanism that ensures accurate duplication and separation of the centrosomes underlies the fidelity of chromosome segregation, but remains unknown. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, entry into S phase and separation of spindle pole bodies each require CDC4 and CDC34, which encode components of an SCF (Skp1-cullin-F-box) ubiquitin ligase, but a direct (SCF) connection to the spindle pole body is unknown. Using immunofluorescence microscopy, we show that in mammalian cells the Skp1 protein and the cullin Cul1 are localized to interphase and mitotic centrosomes and to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Deconvolution and immunoelectron microscopy suggest that Skp1 forms an extended pericentriolar structure that may function to organize the centrosome. Purified centrosomes also contain Skp1, and Cul1 modified by the ubiquitin-like molecule NEDD8, suggesting a role for NEDD8 in targeting. Using an in vitro assay for centriole separation in Xenopus extracts, antibodies to Skp1 or Cul1 block separation. Proteasome inhibitors block both centriole separation in vitro and centrosome duplication in Xenopus embryos. We identify candidate centrosomal F-box proteins, suggesting that distinct SCF complexes may direct proteolysis of factors mediating multiple steps in the centrosome cycle.  (+info)

Tubulin polyglutamylase: isozymic variants and regulation during the cell cycle in HeLa cells. (5/575)

Polyglutamylation is a posttranslational modification of tubulin that is very common in neurons and ciliated or flagellated cells. It was proposed to regulate the binding of microtubule associated proteins (MAPs) and molecular motors as a function of the length of the polyglutamyl side-chain. Though much less common, this modification of tubulin also occurs in proliferating cells like HeLa cells where it is associated with centrioles and with the mitotic spindle. Recently, we partially purified tubulin polyglutamylase from mouse brain and described its enzymatic properties. In this work, we focused on tubulin polyglutamylase activity from HeLa cells. Our results support the existence of a tubulin polyglutamylase family composed of several isozymic variants specific for alpha- or beta-tubulin subunits. In the latter case, the specificity probably also concerns the different beta-tubulin isotypes. Interestingly, we found that tubulin polyglutamylase activity is regulated in a cell cycle dependent manner and peaks in G(2)-phase while the level of glutamylated tubulin peaks in mitosis. Consistent results were obtained by treating the cells with hydroxyurea, nocodazole or taxotere. In particular, in mitotic cells, tubulin polyglutamylase activity was always low while glutamylation level was high. Finally, tubulin polyglutamylase activity and the level of glutamylated tubulin appeared to be inversely related. This paradox suggests a complex regulation of both tubulin polyglutamylase and the reverse deglutamylase activity.  (+info)

Centriolar satellites: molecular characterization, ATP-dependent movement toward centrioles and possible involvement in ciliogenesis. (6/575)

We identified Xenopus pericentriolar material-1 (PCM-1), which had been reported to constitute pericentriolar material, cloned its cDNA, and generated a specific pAb against this molecule. Immunolabeling revealed that PCM-1 was not a pericentriolar material protein, but a specific component of centriolar satellites, morphologically characterized as electron-dense granules, approximately 70-100 nm in diameter, scattered around centrosomes. Using a GFP fusion protein with PCM-1, we found that PCM-1-containing centriolar satellites moved along microtubules toward their minus ends, i.e., toward centrosomes, in live cells, as well as in vitro reconstituted asters. These findings defined centriolar satellites at the molecular level, and explained their pericentriolar localization. Next, to understand the relationship between centriolar satellites and centriolar replication, we examined the expression and subcellular localization of PCM-1 in ciliated epithelial cells during ciliogenesis. When ciliogenesis was induced in mouse nasal respiratory epithelial cells, PCM-1 immunofluorescence was markedly elevated at the apical cytoplasm. At the electron microscopic level, anti-PCM-1 pAb exclusively labeled fibrous granules, but not deuterosomes, both of which have been suggested to play central roles in centriolar replication in ciliogenesis. These findings suggested that centriolar satellites and fibrous granules are identical novel nonmembranous organelles containing PCM-1, which may play some important role(s) in centriolar replication.  (+info)

Development of the human dispermic embryo. (7/575)

In a recent CD-ROM, we portrayed the microstructure of the pre-implantation human embryo (Sathananthan et al., 1999), which was a multimedia production with computer colour-enhanced electron micrographs of mainly monospermic embryos. This disk portrays light and electron micrographs of over 250 tripronuclear (3PN), dispermic, human embryos during pre-implantation development, viewed in thick and thin Araldite sections, as well as appearances of whole embryos flat embedded in Araldite blocks visualized with the light microscope. The 100 figures were computerized (IBM TIFF format), edited and labelled using Adobe Photoshop 5. Some of the figures were coloured on computer. The early development of 3PN embryos overtly resembles that of normal embryos but there are important differences in their microstructure which are portrayed in this presentation. This is a multicentric study involving researchers from four IVF centres.  (+info)

Concerning the localization of steroids in centrioles and basal bodies by immunofluorescence. (8/575)

Specific steroid antibodies, by the immunofluorescence technique, regularly reveal fluorescent centrioles and cilia-bearing basal bodies in target and nontarget cells. Although the precise identity of the immunoreactive steroid substance has not yet been established, it seems noteworthy that exogenous steroids can be vitally concentrated by centrioles, perhaps by exchange with steroids already present at this level. This unexpected localization suggests that steroids may affect cell growth and differentiation in some way different from the two-step receptor mechanism.  (+info)

Centrosomes and cilia are organized by a centriole pair comprising an older mother and a younger daughter. Centriole numbers are tightly regulated, and daughter centrioles (which assemble in S phase) cannot themselves duplicate or organize centrosomes until they have passed through mitosis. It is unclear how this mitotic centriole conversion is regulated, but it requires Plk1/Polo kinase. Here we show that in flies, Cdk1 phosphorylates the conserved centriole protein Sas-4 during mitosis. This creates a Polo-docking site that helps recruit Polo to daughter centrioles and is required for the subsequent recruitment of Asterless (Asl), a protein essential for centriole duplication and mitotic centrosome assembly. Point mutations in Sas-4 that prevent Cdk1 phosphorylation or Polo docking do not block centriole disengagement during mitosis, but block efficient centriole conversion and lead to embryonic lethality. These observations can explain why daughter centrioles have to pass through mitosis before
Cep135/Bld10 is a conserved centriolar protein required for the formation of the central cartwheel, an early intermediate in centriole assembly. Surprisingly, Cep135/Bld10 is not essential for centriole duplication in Drosophila suggesting that either Cep135/Bld10 is not essential for cartwheel formation, or that the cartwheel is not essential for centriole assembly in flies. Using Electron Tomography and super-resolution microscopy we show that centrioles can form a cartwheel in the absence of Cep135/Bld10, but centriole width is increased and the cartwheel appears to disassemble over time. Using 3D structured illumination microscopy we show that Cep135/Bld10 is localised to a region between inner (SAS-6, Ana2) and outer (Asl, DSpd-2 and D-PLP) centriolar components, and the localisation of all these component is subtly perturbed in the absence of Cep135/Bld10, although the 9-fold symmetry of the centriole is maintained. Thus, in flies, Cep135/Bld10 is not essential for cartwheel assembly or ...
In our lab we are using a combination of biochemical, cell biological and genetic approaches in the nematode C. elegans to investigate the fundamental and conserved molecular mechanisms underlying centriole assembly and function. In previous work we have taken advantage of the availability of data from genome-wide RNAi-based screens to define the molecular requirements for centriole assembly. The six-protein molecular pathway we identified has since been found to be conserved from ciliates to vertebrates, and is thought to form the core of the centriole assembly machinery in all eukaryotes. We further identified the hydrolethalus syndrome protein HYLS-1 as a core centriolar protein that is incorporated into centrioles during their assembly to confer on them the ability to initiate cilia. The single amino acid missense mutation associated with hydrolethalus syndrome impairs HYLS-1 function in ciliogenesis, identifying this disorder as a severe (perinatal lethal) ciliopathy ...

Every animal cell has two small organells called centrioles. Centrioles help the cell when it comes time to divide. Mitosis and meiosis both have centrioles involved in. A centriole is a small set of microtubules arranged in a specific way. Also, there are nine groups of microtubles. The centrioles are found in pairs and move towards the poles of the nucleus when it is time for cell division. During interphase, the cell is at rest. The centrioles move to opposite ends of the nucleus and a mitotic spindle of threads begins to appear during prophase. Centrioles are cylindrical structures that composed of groupings of microtubules arranged in 9+3 pattern. They are usually exist in pairs that form centrosomes. Centrioles are found in animal cells and play a big role in cell division. While cell division, the centrosome divides and the centrioles replicate (make new copies). The result is two centrosomes, each with its own pair of centrioles. The two centrosomes move to opposite ends of the nucleus, ...
Centrioles are microtubule-based organelles crucial for cell division, sensing and motility. In Caenorhabditis elegans, the onset of centriole formation requires notably the proteins SAS-5 and SAS-6, which have functional equivalents across eukaryotic evolution. Whereas the molecular architecture of SAS-6 and its role in initiating centriole formation are well understood, the mechanisms by which SAS-5 and its relatives function is unclear. Here, we combine biophysical and structural analysis to uncover the architecture of SAS-5 and examine its functional implications in vivo. Our work reveals that two distinct self-associating domains are necessary to form higher-order oligomers of SAS-5: a trimeric coiled coil and a novel globular dimeric Implico domain. Disruption of either domain leads to centriole duplication failure in worm embryos, indicating that large SAS-5 assemblies are necessary for function in vivo.

Centrosomes are the principal microtubule organizing centers (MTOCs) of animal cells and comprise a pair of centrioles surrounded by pericentriolar material (PCM). Centriole number must be carefully regulated, notably to ensure bipolar spindle formation and thus faithful chromosome segregation. In the germ line of most metazoan species, centrioles are maintained during spermatogenesis, but eliminated during oogenesis. Such differential behavior ensures that the appropriate number of centrioles is present in the newly fertilized zygote. Despite being a fundamental feature of sexual reproduction in metazoans, the mechanisms governing centriole elimination during oogenesis are poorly understood. Here, we investigate this question in C. elegans. Using antibodies directed against centriolar components and serial-section electron microscopy, we establish that centrioles are eliminated during the diplotene stage of the meiotic cell cycle. Moreover, we show that centriole elimination is delayed upon depletion
Patients with MCPH (autosomal recessive primary microcephaly) exhibit impaired brain development, presumably due to the compromised function of neuronal progenitors. Seven MCPH loci have been identified, including one that encodes centrosome protein 4.1 associated protein (CPAP; also known as centromere protein J, CENPJ). CPAP is a large coiled‐coil protein enriched at the centrosome, a structure that comprises two centrioles and surrounding pericentriolar material (PCM). CPAP depletion impairs centriole formation, whereas CPAP overexpression results in overly long centrioles. The mechanisms by which CPAP MCPH patient mutations affect brain development are not clear. Here, we identify CPAP protein domains crucial for its centriolar localization, as well as for the elongation and the formation of centrioles. Furthermore, we demonstrate that conditions that resemble CPAP MCPH patient mutations compromise centriole formation in tissue culture cells. Using adhesive micropatterns, we reveal that ...
But there are also cells that dont have any centrioles-like oocytes, which cant form an embryo until a sperm brings in a centriole during fertilization. Then there are cells that have hundreds of centrioles, all of which form cilia that beat in the same direction to generate fluid flow. So different cell types regulate centriole number in different ways.. In some cell types, centrioles arent needed for cell division. Why is that?. If you look at the eukaryotic tree of life, centrioles exist in all the different branches, but some eukaryotes have lost them. Higher plants like Arabidopsis, or certain fungi like fission and budding yeast dont have centrioles, so its clear that there are other ways of nucleating microtubules and organizing the mitotic spindle. However, centrioles are always there in the species that make cilia and flagella. One idea is that centrioles go to spindle poles as a way to ensure theyre faithfully segregated and can make new cilia in the daughter cells. Because ...
CENTRIOLES, in the cytoplasm and basal bodies at the plasma membrane, are conserved microtubule-based organelles essential for cell division and cilium formation (Nigg and Raff 2009). Centrioles are essential for fertilization, development, and animal physiological functions (Nigg and Raff 2009). In the newly fertilized egg (i.e., zygote), a centriole normally functions by recruiting pericentriolar material (PCM) and becoming the primary centrosome (Delattre and Gonczy 2004). This centrosome, in the zygote, acts as a microtubule-organizing center and nucleates the astral microtubules that mediate the migration of the female and male nuclei toward each other (Callaini and Riparbelli 1996).. A centriole forms by one of two pathways. In the duplication pathway, a pre-existing centriole acts as a scaffold to ensure that only a daughter centriole is formed per cell cycle. However, the pre-existing centriole does not appear to impart structural information to the daughter (Rodrigues-Martins et al. ...
Centriole is a structure found in eukaryotic animal cells. Plant cells and fungi do no contain centrioles. Centriole is the part of the cell, which acts as the center for producing microtubules, which are the component of cytoskeleton. Cytoskeleton is the skeleton of the cell that provides both shape and structure to a cell. Animal cells contain 2 centrioles, which together form the structure, centrosome. In other words, the centrioles are found within the centrosomes, which is a small region in the cytoplasm near the nucleus. Within the centrosomes, the two centrioles are positioned in such a way that both are perpendicular to each other. Like other structures of a cell, centrioles too perform several important functions. Below here is a brief discussion about the centriole function and structure in the study of biology ...
In interphase Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, the centrosome is attached to the nucleus very firmly. This nuclear-centrosome complex is isolated as a coherent structure by lysis and extraction of cells with Triton X-100 in a low ionic strength medium. Under these conditions, the ultrastructure of the centrioles attached to the nucleus can be discerned by electron microscopy of whole-mount preparations. The structural changes of the centrioles as a function of the cell cycle were monitored by this technique. Specifically, centriolar profiles were placed into six categories according to their orientation and the length ratio of daughter and parent centrioles. The proportion of centrioles in each category was plotted as a frequency histogram. The morphological changes in the centriole cycle were characterized by three distinguishable events: nucleation, elongation, and disorientation. The progress of centrioles through these stages was determined in synchronous populations of cells starting from ...
Centrosomes have many important functions and comprise a mother and daughter centriole surrounded by Pericentriolar Material (PCM). The mother centriole recruits and organises the PCM and templates the formation of the daughter centriole. It has been reported that several important Drosophila PCM-organising proteins are recruited to centrioles from the cytosol as part of large cytoplasmic S-CAP complexes that contain the centriole protein Sas-4. In a previous paper [1] we showed that one of these proteins, Cnn, and another key PCM-organising protein, Spd-2, are recruited around the mother centriole before spreading outwards to form a scaffold that supports mitotic PCM assembly; the recruitment of Cnn and Spd-2 is dependent on another S-CAP protein, Asl. We show here, however, that Cnn, Spd-2 and Asl are not recruited to the mother centriole as part of a complex with Sas-4. Thus, PCM recruitment in fly embryos does not appear to require cytosolic S-CAP complexes ...
casSAR Dugability of B4J3F1 | SAK | Serine/threonine-protein kinase PLK4 - Also known as PLK4_DROGR, SAK. Serine/threonine-protein kinase that plays a central role in centriole duplication. Able to trigger procentriole formation on the surface of the mother centriole cylinder, using mother centriole as a platform, leading to the recruitment of centriole biogenesis proteins such as sas-6. When overexpressed, it is able to induce centrosome amplification through the simultaneous generation of multiple procentrioles adjoining each parental centriole during S phase. Centrosome amplification following overexpression can initiate tumorigenesis, highlighting the importance of centrosome regulation in cancers (By similarity). Homodimer.
Altogether, the aforementioned data indicate that rootletin cooperates with C-Nap1 to establish centrosome cohesion and that both proteins are regulated by phosphorylation during the cell cycle. These findings have implications for different models of centrosome cohesion (Fig. 5 E). In principle, centrosome cohesion might result from the embedding of centrioles in a matrix composed of PCM proteins (Fig. 5 E, a). In this scenario, rootletin could contribute to the anchoring of centrioles to an underlying matrix. Alternatively, it is possible that cohesion is established by specialized linker proteins, as illustrated in Fig. 5 E (b and c). All of these models need to accommodate the fact that, at least in some cells, the two centrioles of the original diplosome become widely separated already during G1 (Sherline and Mascardo, 1982; Euteneuer and Schliwa, 1985; Whitehead et al., 1996) and that centrioles display a striking mobility (Piel et al., 2000). With regard to the second model in Fig. 5 E ...
Necessary for centrosome duplication; the function seems also to involve CEP63, CDK5RAP2 and WDR62 through a stepwise assembled complex at the centrosome that recruits CDK2 required for centriole duplication (PubMed:26297806). Acts as a molecular scaffold facilitating the interaction of PLK4 and CENPJ, 2 molecules involved in centriole formation (PubMed:21059844, PubMed:20852615). Proposed to snatch PLK4 away from PLK4:CEP92 complexes in early G1 daughter centriole and to reposition PLK4 at the outer boundary of a newly forming CEP152 ring structure (PubMed:24997597). Also plays a key role in deuterosome-mediated centriole amplification in multiciliated that can generate more than 100 centrioles (By similarity). Overexpression of CEP152 can drive amplification of centrioles (PubMed:20852615).
Duplication of the centrosome is well controlled during faithful cell division while deregulation of this process leads to supernumary centrosomes, chromosome missegregation and aneuploidy, a hallmark of many cancer cells. We previously reported that Polo-like kinase 2 (Plk2) is activated near the G1/S phase transition, and regulates the reproduction of centrosomes. In search for Plk2 interacting proteins we have identified NPM/B23 (Nucleophosmin) as a novel Plk2 binding partner. We find that Plk2 and NPM/B23 interact in vitro in a Polo-box dependent manner. An association between both proteins was also observed in vivo. Moreover, we show that Plk2 phosphorylates NPM/B23 on serine 4 in vivo in S-phase. Notably, expression of a non-phosphorylatable NPM/B23 S4A mutant interferes with centriole reduplication in S-phase arrested cells and leads to a dilution of centriole numbers in unperturbed U2OS cells. The corresponding phospho-mimicking mutants have the opposite effect and their expression leads to the
Mammalian cells are capable of de novo centriole formation after the removal of existing centrioles. This suggests that de novo centriole assembly is repressed in normally duplicating cells to maintain a constant number of centrioles in the cells. However, neither the mechanism of de novo centriole assembly nor that of its hypothesized repression is understood due to the lack of an experimental system. We found that the heat shock (HS; 42°C, 2 h) of mouse embryonic fibroblasts caused the separation of centriole pairs, a transient increase in polo-like kinase (Plk) 4 expression, and the formation of a complex containing γ-tubulin, pericentrin, HS protein (Hsp) 90, and Plk4, in approximately half of the cells ...
Centrioles are cellular organelles that give rise to the centrosome, a structure composed of a pair of centrioles surrounded by pericentriolar material. Centrosomes perform a variety of different cellular functions: they are the main microtubule organising centre in animal cells and are important
The centriole is a cytoplasmic structure in most eukaryote cells. It is involved in cell division and in the formation of cilia and flagella. Centrioles are not found in vascular plants and in most fungi.[1] Most centrioles are nine sets of microtubule triplets, arranged in a cylinder. A pair of centrioles, arranged perpendicularly and surrounded by a mass of dense material makes up the centrosome.[2] ...
In this study, we have developed a chemical genetic approach to reversibly deplete Plk4 and centrioles in a proliferating population of human cells. This is the first time the auxin-inducible destruction system has been used to reversibly manipulate the levels of an endogenous protein in vertebrate cells. In principle, the strategy we have taken could be applied to control the levels of many proteins that are not amenable to traditional chemical inhibition. In the future, combining the AID system with CRISPR/Cas9 genome engineering will greatly increase the efficiency with which biallelic targeting of endogenous genes can be achieved, paving the way for rapid and tunable control of protein function.. The long-term consequence of centriole depletion has not been studied in a nontransformed vertebrate cell line. By inducing chronic depletion of Plk4, we reveal the presence of a p53-dependent pathway that arrests the growth of untransformed cells after a failure of centriole duplication (Fig. 5 A). ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Centriole and centrin degeneration during mouse spermiogenesis. AU - Manandhar, G.. AU - Simerly, C.. AU - Salisbury, J. L.. AU - Schatten, G.. PY - 1999. Y1 - 1999. N2 - Centrosome reduction during mouse spermiogenesis has been studied by immunofluorescent microscopy using anticentrin antibody (20H5) and TEM. Centrin is detected as two spots in round spermatids, corresponding to a pair of centrioles. In elongating spermatids, centrin spots colocalize with the centrioles in the neck region, while the perinuclear ring from which manchette microtubules arise, does not label with the antibody 20H5. The proximal centriole of the elongating spermatids develops a prominent adjunct, which assembles an aster of microtubules. TEM studies after immunogold labeling revealed that centrin is associated with the distal and the proximal centrioles, but not with the adjunct. Centrin labeling in the neck region diminishes after spermiation stage, although it is not completely lost from all ...
The numerical and spatial specificity of procentriole assembly has historically led to the notion that the mother centriole has only one unique site or template that can seed the assembly of the new procentriole (see [55] for a thoughtful discussion of the possible meanings for this ambiguous term). In its simplest form, the term template implies a structure that directly patterns the cartwheel structure and the nine triplet microtubules of the procentriole-a rubber stamp in the parlance of Fulton. In Paramecium, there is a plaque next to the parent basal body upon which the barrel of triplet microtubules progressively assembles [56] and in Chlamydomonas, there is a looped fibre at the mother basal body containing nine densely staining foci that later elaborate into triplet microtubules [57] (reviewed in [58]). However, it is uncertain whether these structures are the proposed template on the mother basal body or the early assembly intermediates of daughter basal bodies.. Another possibility ...
Component of the centrioles that acts as a positive regulator of centriole elongation (PubMed:24997988). Promotes assembly of centriolar distal appendage, a structure at the distal end of the mother centriole that acts as an anchor of the cilium, and is required for recruitment of centriolar distal appendages proteins CEP83, SCLT1, CEP89, FBF1 and CEP164. Not required for centriolar satellite integrity or RAB8 activation. Required for primary cilium formation (PubMed:23769972). Required for sonic hedgehog/SHH signaling and for proteolytic processing of GLI3.
Abnormal multipolar mitoses are commonly observed in human cancers where they can increase the risk for chromosome segregation errors, numerical chromosomal instability and malignant progression. The mitotic spindle poles are formed by centrosomes and tumor cells frequently show abnormal centrosomes numbers. The molecular mechanisms leading to numerical centrosome aberrations are not understood in detail. The centrosome consists of two centrioles, which normally duplicate in synchrony with the cell division cycle. We recently identified a novel mechanisms leading to abnormal centriole numbers in tumor cells in which maternal centrioles generate more than the normal one daughter at the same time (centriole multiplication). Using a siRNA library screen enriched for centrosomal proteins, we identified Cep57 as a novel protein involved in centriole multiplication. Cep57 was found to localize to centrosomes and to co-localize and functionally interact with Polo-like kinase 4 (PLK4), a master ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The pericentriolar lattice of PtK2 cells exhibits temperature and calcium-modulated behavior. AU - Baron, Andre T.. AU - Suman, Vera J.. AU - Nemeth, Edward. AU - Salisbury, Jeffrey L.. PY - 1994/11/1. Y1 - 1994/11/1. N2 - In this study, we demonstrate that manipulations of temperature and free calcium alter the morphology of the centrin-containing pericentriolar lattice of PtK2 cells. Immunofluorescence microscopy reveals that low-temperature incubation (4°C) causes anti-centrin-labeled pericentrosomal spots to coalesce in the peripheral cytoplasm, and fuses small spots into larger spots near the cell center. At electron microscopic resolution, well-formed pericentriolar satellites appear around the centrioles in response to incubation at 4°C. Elevated free calcium enhances these low-temperature-dependent effects. The data suggest that pericentrosomal spots correspond to one or more pericentriolar satellites, and that pericentriolar satellites and centrosomal matrix are ...

To understand how SAS-6 might organise the centriolar cartwheel, we obtained high-resolution crystal structures of SAS-6 fragments at beamlines ID29 and BM14. These structures show that SAS-6 consists of a globular N-terminal head domain and a rod like coiled-coil domain that follows in sequence. Both domains were found to form homodimers: The N-terminal domain formed a slightly curved head-to-head dimer while the coiled-coil domain formed a canonical elongated coiled-coil dimer. We confirmed these interactions in solution and showed that the coiled-coil dimer is stable while head-to-head dimerisation occurs with a rather low affinity. Both interactions are biologically relevant and are essential for SAS-6 function in vivo.. Modelling these interactions in SAS-6 resulted in curved oligomers that were compatible with a 9-fold ring with similar dimensions to that of cartwheel hubs observed in vivo (Figure 117b). Consistent with this model, we found that recombinant SAS-6 constructs do indeed form ...

Alms1a is a centrosomal protein that exhibits asymmetric localization between mother and daughter centrosomes in asymmetrically dividing stem cells in Drosophila testis, controlling centriole duplication.
At the onset of mitosis, the centrosome expands and matures, acquiring enhanced activities for microtubule nucleation and assembly of a functional bipolar mitotic spindle. However, the mechanisms that regulate centrosome expansion and maturation are largely unknown. Previously, we demonstrated in an immortalized human cell line CGL2 and cancer cell line HeLa that the inducible form of heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) accumulates at the mitotic centrosome and is required for centrosome maturation and bipolar spindle assembly. In this study, we further show that HSP70 accumulated at the spindle pole in a PLK1-dependent manner. HSP70 colocalized with pericentrin (PCNT), CEP215 and γ-tubulin at the spindle pole and was required for the 3D assembly of these three proteins, which supports mitotic centrosome function. Loss of HSP70 disrupted mitotic centrosome structure, reduced pericentriolar material recruitment and induced fragmentation of spindle poles. In addition, HSP70 was necessary for the interaction
TY - JOUR. T1 - Centriole distal appendages promote membrane docking, leading to cilia initiation. AU - Tanos, Barbara E.. AU - Yang, Hui Ju. AU - Soni, Rajesh. AU - Wang, Won Jing. AU - Macaluso, Frank P.. AU - Asara, John M.. AU - Tsou, Meng Fu Bryan. N1 - Copyright: Copyright 2013 Elsevier B.V., All rights reserved.. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - The distal appendages (DAPs) of centrioles have been proposed to anchor cilia to the plasma membrane, but their molecular composition, assembly, and exact function in ciliogenesis remain poorly understood. Using quantitative centrosome proteomics and superresolution microscopy, we identified five DAP components, including one previously described (CEP164), one partially characterized (CEP89 [ccdc123]), and three novel (CEP83 [ccdc41], SCLT1, and FBF1) DAP proteins. Analyses of DAP assembly revealed a hierarchy. CEP83 recruits both SCLT1 and CEP89 to centrioles. Subsequent recruitment of FBF1 and CEP164 is independent of CEP89 but mediated by SCLT1. All ...
Centrosomes are composed of a pair of barrel-shaped, 9-fold symmetric centrioles, surrounded by a proteinaceous matrix collectively referred to as pericentriolar material (PCM).1 Centrosomes are the major microtubule organizing centers in mammalian cells and participate in various cellular processes that include cell motility, mitotic cell division, and ciliogenesis. Proteomic characterization and protein correlation profiling established that the human centrosome is composed of over 100 proteins (1). Understanding how this intricate array of proteins is organized into functionally distinct protein complexes that regulate various aspects of centrosome biogenesis, function, and architecture constitutes a major challenge.. Centrosome biogenesis and function is tightly regulated during the cell cycle. Indeed, the single interphase centrosome must duplicate once and only once during the cell cycle such that two centrosomes are present in mitosis, with each centrosome organizing one pole of the ...
Involved in early and late steps in cilia formation. Its association with CCP110 is required for inhibition of primary cilia formation by CCP110 (PubMed:18694559).

in San Diego. There were thousands of attendees, including many of our funded investigators as well as a few of us from NIGMS. As a new program director, I enjoyed meeting many of the grantees and applicants Ive talked to on the phone or by e-mail. I met a few others, too, who stopped by the NIGMS booth to get information on funding opportunities.. I cant even begin to come up with an exhaustive list of all highlights from the 5-day program, so I will share just a few.. I was most excited about how discoveries made using simple organisms, such as yeast and unicellular algae, are informing models of human disease in new ways. For example, studies of centriole biogenesis and cilia formation in invertebrates have provided a mechanistic understanding of human ciliopathic disorders such as Bardet-Biedl syndrome. Interestingly, the relationship between human disorders and basic research is a two-way street: By doing a genetic analysis of plant and invertebrate orthologs of genes mutated in people ...
Cilia Polarity The ability of ciliated epithelia to generate directed fluid flow is an important aspect of diverse developmental and physiological processes including proper respiratory function. To achieve directed flow, ciliated cells must generate 100-200 cilia that are polarized along a common axis both within and between cells. My lab is currently working towards understanding the molecular mechanisms for how cell polarity is coordinated as well as how individual cilia interpret the cells polarity. We have determined that ciliated cells receive polarity cues via the non-cononical Wnt / Planar Cell Polarity (PCP) pathway, but the details of this are still poorly understood. Additionally, the PCP pathway is known to influence a cells cytoskeleton dynamics and a main goal is to understand how this influences the ability of individual cilia to coordinate their polarity. Centriole Duplication Centrioles are microtubule based structures with nine fold symmetry that are involved in both centrosome ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The ciliary cytoskeleton. AU - Pedersen, Lotte B.. AU - Schrøder, Jacob M.. AU - Satir, Peter. AU - Christensen, Søren T.. PY - 2012/1/1. Y1 - 2012/1/1. N2 - Cilia and flagella are surface-exposed, finger-like organelles whose core consists of a microtubule (MT)-based axoneme that grows from a modified centriole, the basal body. Cilia are found on the surface of many eukaryotic cells and play important roles in cell motility and in coordinating a variety of signaling pathways during growth, development, and tissue homeostasis. Defective cilia have been linked to a number of developmental disorders and diseases, collectively called ciliopathies. Cilia are dynamic organelles that assemble and disassemble in tight coordination with the cell cycle. In most cells, cilia are assembled during growth arrest in a multistep process involving interaction of vesicles with appendages present on the distal end of mature centrioles, and addition of tubulin and other building blocks to the ...
The protein encoded by this gene is a component of centriolar satellites, which are electron dense granules scattered around centrosomes. Inhibition studies show that this protein is essential for the correct localization of several centrosomal proteins, and for anchoring microtubules to the centrosome. Chromosomal aberrations involving this gene are associated with papillary thyroid carcinomas and a variety of hematological malignancies, including atypical chronic myeloid leukemia and T-cell lymphoma.

A homozygous truncating frameshift mutation in CEP57 (CEP57T/T) has been identified in a subset of mosaic-variegated aneuploidy (MVA) patients; however, the physiological roles of the centrosome-associated protein CEP57 that contribute to disease are unknown. To investigate these, we have generated a mouse model mimicking this disease mutation. Cep57T/T mice died within 24 hours after birth with short, curly tails and severely impaired vertebral ossification. Osteoblasts in lumbosacral vertebrae of Cep57T/T mice were deficient for Fgf2, a Cep57 binding partner implicated in diverse biological processes, including bone formation. Furthermore, a broad spectrum of tissues of Cep57T/T mice had severe aneuploidy at birth, consistent with the MVA patient phenotype. Cep57T/T mouse embryonic fibroblasts and patient-derived skin fibroblasts failed to undergo centrosome maturation in G2 phase, causing premature centriole disjunction, centrosome amplification, aberrant spindle formation, and high rates of ...

The spermiogenesis process in Wardula capitellata begins with the formation of a differentiation zone containing two centrioles associated with striated rootlets and an intercentriolar body. Each centriole develops into a free flagellum orthogonal to a median cytoplasmic process. Later these flagella rotate and become parallel to the median cytoplasmic process, which already exhibits two electron-dense areas and spinelike bodies before its proximodistal fusion with the flagella. The final stage of the spermiogenesis is characterized by the constriction of the ring of arched membranes, giving rise to the young spermatozoon, which detaches from the residual cytoplasm. The mature spermatozoon of W. capitellata presents most of the classical characters reported in digenean spermatozoa such as two axonemes of different lengths of the 9 + 1 trepaxonematan pattern, nucleus, mitochondrion, two bundles of parallel cortical microtubules and granules of glycogen. However, some peculiarities such as two ...
Spermatological characters of the liver fluke Mediogonimus jourdanei Mas-Coma et Rocamora, 1978 were studied by means of transmission and scanning electron microscopy. Spermiogenesis begins with the formation of the differentiation zone containing two centrioles associated with striated rootlets and an intercentriolar body. These two centrioles originate two free flagella that undergo a 90 degrees rotation before fusing with the median cytoplasmic process. Both nuclear and mitochondrial migrations toward the median cytoplasmic process occur before the proximodistal fusion of flagella. Finally, the constriction of the ring of arched membranes gives rise to the young spermatozoon. The mature sperm of M. jourdanei measures about 260 microm and presents two axonemes of different lengths with the typical pattern of the Trepaxonemata, two bundles of parallel cortical microtubules, one mitochondrion, a nucleus and granules of glycogen. An analysis of all the microphalloidean species studied to date ...

Proteins and their interaction networks are at the heart of life. Understanding how diverse proteins come together spatially and temporally and how their specific complexes translate into cellular functions is important to understand health and disease but represents a major challenge. Microtubules are filamentous structures fundamentally involved in diverse cellular processes ranging from cell division, motility and polarity to signaling and intracellular transport. They are also key to form centrioles of centrosomes and axonemes of cilia and flagella. Because of their important role for cell survival, the malfunctioning of the microtubule cytoskeleton is associated with several severe human pathologies including cancer and various forms of ciliopathies as well as cardiovascular, infectious and brain diseases. We use X-ray crystallography in combination with biochemical and biophysical methods to investigate how proteins and drugs regulate the structure, function and dynamics of the microtubule ...

After viewing the tutorial video and completing the Google Form, you should have an understanding of cell division by mitosis, including a knowledge of what occurs inside the cell during each of the phases of mitosis. A cell spends most of its life performing is normal functions. Most cells will spend a brief period of their life dividing. All cells come from other pre-existing cells. I call it the secret to the continuation of life. Without mitosis, life would not continue. Through this process a mother cell divides into two genetically identical daughter cells. This process if relatively simple, however it must occur just as prescribed in order to create daughter cells that are clones of the mother cell. Key vocabulay in this less includes: chromosome, chromatid, centriole, and spindle fibers.

When a Largo Slime encounters a third type of Slime DNA in the form of a plort, it eats it, only recognizing the ATP and mass as explained in the Largo section. This causes a disastrous chain of events within the Slimes body, turning into the oily ball we all know and love. The first thing that happens is the nucleus trying to preform mitosis with all three sets of DNA, similar to the formation of a Largo. However, the centrioles that split core DNA for mitosis cannot multitask the additional DNA into the structure of the slime, causing the ribosomes desperately trying to replicate all the different types of DNA to collapse and spread loose DNA out through the cytoplasm, hence the eerie spectral color. The loose DNA creates an extreme burst of free radical nucleotides that char the outer parts of the Largo black. The complete collapse of the Nucleuss assets and intracellular workforce causes the nucleus to lose connection to the rest of the cell, most notably the sensory organs, regressing the ...
