A distinct inner nuclear membrane proteome in Saccharomyces cerevisiae gametes [article]

Shary N Shelton, Sarah E. Smith, Jay R. Unruh, Sue L. Jaspersen
2021 bioRxiv   pre-print
The inner nuclear membrane (INM) proteome regulates gene expression, chromatin organization, and nuclear transport, however, it is poorly understood how changes in INM protein composition contribute to developmentally regulated processes, such as gametogenesis. Using a split-GFP complementation system, we compared the distribution of all C-terminally tagged transmembrane proteins in Saccharomyces cerevisiae in gametes to that of mitotic cells. Gametes contain a distinct INM proteome needed to

Based on the inheritance pattern, INM components are made de novo in the gametes. Whereas mitotic cells show a strong preference for proteins with small extraluminal domains, gametes do not exhibit this size preference likely due to the changes in the nuclear permeability barrier during gametogenesis.

Redistribution of centrosomal proteins by centromeres and Polo kinase controls nuclear envelope breakdown [article]

Andrew J Bestul, Zulin Yu, Jay R Unruh, Sue L Jaspersen
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
Proper mitotic progression in Schizosaccharomyces pombe requires partial nuclear envelope breakdown (NEBD) and insertion of the spindle pole body (SPB; yeast centrosome) to build the mitotic spindle. Linkage of the centromere to the SPB is vital to this process, but why that linkage is important is not well understood. Utilizing high-resolution structured illumination microscopy (SIM), we show that the conserved SUN-protein Sad1 and other SPB proteins redistribute during mitosis to form a ring
more » ... omplex around SPBs, which is a precursor for NEBD and spindle formation. Although the Polo kinase Plo1 is not necessary for Sad1 redistribution, it localizes to the SPB region connected to the centromere, and its activity is vital for SPB ring protein redistribution and for complete NEBD to allow for SPB insertion. Our results lead to a model in which centromere linkage to the SPB drives redistribution of Sad1 and Plo1 activation that in turn facilitate NEBD and spindle formation through building of an SPB ring structure.

Asi1 regulates the distribution of proteins at the inner nuclear membrane in Saccharomyces cerevisiae [article]

Christine J. Smoyer, Sarah E. Smith, Scott McCroskey, Jay R. Unruh, Sue L. Jaspersen
2018 bioRxiv   pre-print
AbstractInner nuclear membrane (INM) protein composition regulates nuclear function, affecting processes such as gene expression, chromosome organization, nuclear shape and stability. Mechanisms that drive changes in the INM proteome are poorly understood in part because it is difficult to definitively assay INM composition rigorously and systematically. Using a split-GFP complementation system to detect INM access, we examined the distribution of all C-terminally tagged Saccharomyces

Deletion of the E3 ligase Asi1 had the most pronounced effect on the INM compared to mutants in vacuolar or ER-associated degradation pathways, consistent with a role for Asi1 in the INMAD pathway. Our data suggests that Asi1 not only removes mis-targeted proteins at the INM, but it also controls the levels and distribution of native INM components, such as the membrane nucleoporin Pom33. Interestingly, loss of Asi1 does not affect Pom33 protein levels but instead alters Pom33 distribution in the NE through Pom33 ubiquitination, which drives INM redistribution. Taken together, our data demonstrate that the Asi1 E3 ligase has a novel function in INM protein regulation in addition to protein turnover.

Actin Depolymerization Drives Actomyosin Ring Contraction during Budding Yeast Cytokinesis

Inês Mendes Pinto, Boris Rubinstein, Andrei Kucharavy, Jay R. Unruh, Rong Li
2012 Developmental Cell  
Actin filaments and myosin II are evolutionarily conserved force-generating components of the contractile ring during cytokinesis. Here we show that in budding yeast, actin filament depolymerization plays a major role in actomyosin ring constriction. Cofilin mutation or chemically stabilizing actin filaments attenuate actomyosin ring constriction. Deletion of myosin II motor domain or the myosin regulatory light chain reduced the contraction rate and also the rate of actin depolymerization in

Model simulations based on experimental measurements support the notion that actin depolymerization is the predominant mechanism for ring constriction. The model predicts invariability of total contraction time regardless of the initial ring size, as originally reported for C. elegans embryonic cells. This prediction was validated in yeast cells of different sizes due to different ploidies.

Two-photon microscopy with wavelength switchable fiber laser excitation

2006 Optics Express  
Two-photon scanning fluorescence microscopy has become a powerful tool for imaging living cells and tissues. Most applications of two-photon microscopy employ a Ti:sapphire laser excitation source, which is not readily portable or rapidly tunable. This work explores the use of two-photon fiber laser excitation (TP-FLEX) as an excitation source for scanning two-photon microscopy. We have further demonstrated the use of a photonic crystal fiber (PCF) for facile tuning of the excitation wavelength

By PCF wavelength tuning the dye BODIPY fl was selectively excited at 1000 nm whereas MitoTracker red was excited preferentially at 1100 nm. We discuss the potential for fiber laser sources coupled with PCF wavelength tuning as an attractive tunable excitation source for two-photon scanning fluorescence microscopy.
