Abstract [en]

Here, we characterize a transmembrane protein of the nuclear envelope that we name spindle-associated membrane protein 1 (Samp1). The protein is conserved in metazoa and fission yeast and is homologous to Net5 in rat and Ima1 in Schizosaccharomyces pombe. We show that, in human cells, the protein is a membrane-spanning polypeptide with an apparent molecular mass of 43 kDa. This is consistent with a predicted polypeptide of 392 amino acids that has five transmembrane segments and its C-terminus exposed to the nucleoplasm. During interphase, Samp1 was specifically distributed in the inner nuclear membrane. Post-transcriptional silencing of Samp1 expression resulted in separation of centrosomes from the nuclear envelope, indicating that it is functionally connected to the cytoskeleton. At the onset of mitosis, most of the protein dispersed out into the ER, as expected. However, during mitosis, a significant fraction of the protein specifically localized to the polar regions of the mitotic spindle. We demonstrate for the first time, in human cells, the existence of a membranous structure overlapping with the mitotic spindle. Interestingly, another integral inner nuclear membrane protein, emerin, was absent from the spindle-associated membranes. Thus, Samp1 defines a specific membrane domain associated with the mitotic spindle.

Abstract [en]

The cell nucleus is enclosed by the nuclear envelope (NE), a double lipid membrane separating the nucleoplasm from the cytoplasm. Transport of macromolecules between the nucleus and the cytoplasm takes places through nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) in a selective and energy dependent manner. The inner nuclear membrane (INM) contains transmembrane proteins that interact with the nuclear lamina and chromatin. In addition to being a barrier between the nucleoplasm and cytoplasm, an emerging view is that the NE has an active role in chromatin organization and gene regulation.

In order to study structural and functional organization of the NE in live cells, we have used green fluorescent protein (GFP)-labeled proteins and laser scanning confocal microscopy (LSCM). In order to investigate dynamic properties of specific proteins or protein complexes we have used photobleaching techniques. In order to understand the organization of the NPC it is essential to study components necessary for NPC biogenesis and maintenance. We have investigated the possible alterations in the NPC in cells naturally lacking one of the integral membrane proteins of the NPC, gp210. Despite the lack of gp210, we observed no difference in distribution or density of pores. Neither did cell cycle progression nor generation time differ between cells having or lacking gp210. In addition, targeting or dynamic properties of the NPC proteins POM121, Nup107 or Nup153 were unaltered in the absence of gp210. We conclude that gp210 can not be essential for NPC biogenesis or maintaining stability of the NPC.

The steps involved in onset of nuclear apoptosis are unclear. We studied nuclear alterations during apoptosis. We show that the nucleocytoplasmic barrier is disrupted early in apoptosis at the same time as chromatin collapses against the nuclear periphery but prior to nucleosomal DNA fragmentation. In addition, the disruption of nucleocytoplasmic transport correlates with caspase-3 dependent cleavage of POM121 at aspartate-531.

The INM is estimated to contain ~70 uncharacterized transmembrane proteins. We characterized a novel putative mammalian NE protein that we termed Samp1. We show that Samp1 is an integral membrane protein specifically localized to the inner nuclear membrane during interphase. Interestingly, during mitosis a sub fraction of Samp1 distributed in the polar region of the mitotic spindle, colocalizing with tubulin and a lipid marker. However, another inner nuclear membrane protein, emerin, was excluded from this area. Thus Samp1 appears to define a specific membrane domain associated with the mitotic machinery.

The distribution of peroxisomal fatty acid metabolizing enzymes have been reported to vary in different tissues. We investigated whether photobleaching techniques could be used to study the distribution of peroxisomal matrix proteins. We used GFP-labeled peroxisomal proteins and fluorescence recovery after photobleaching to show that peroxisomal matrix proteins become “trapped” inside peroxisomes after import. Thus we conclude that fluorescence loss in photobleaching can be used to distinguish between a strictly cytoplasmic localization and a dual localization when a protein is present both in the cytoplasm and in peroxisomes. Using this technique we determined that GFP-BAAT (bile acid-CoA:amino acid N-acyltransferase) is exclusively localized to the cytoplasm in HeLa cells.
