Centriolar Satellites Control GABARAP Ubiquitination and GABARAP-Mediated Autophagy.

Current biology : CB | Jul 24, 2017

Autophagy maintains cellular health and homeostasis during stress by delivering cytosolic material captured by autophagosomes to lysosomes for degradation. Autophagosome formation is complex: initiated by the recruitment of autophagy (Atg) proteins to the formation site, it is sustained by activation of Atg proteins to allow growth and closure of the autophagosome. How Atg proteins are translocated to the forming autophagosome is not fully understood. Transport of the ATG8 family member GABARAP from the centrosome occurs during starvation-induced autophagosome biogenesis, but how centrosomal proteins regulate GABARAP localization is unknown. We show that the centriolar satellite protein PCM1 regulates the recruitment of GABARAP to the pericentriolar material. In addition to residing on the pericentriolar material, GABARAP marks a subtype of PCM1-positive centriolar satellites. GABARAP, but not another ATG8 family member LC3B, binds directly to PCM1 through a canonical LIR motif. Loss of PCM1 results in destabilization of GABARAP, but not LC3B, through proteasomal degradation. GABARAP instability is mediated through the centriolar satellite E3 ligase Mib1, which interacts with GABARAP through its substrate-binding region and promotes K48-linked ubiquitination of GABARAP. Ubiquitination of GABARAP occurs in the N terminus, a domain associated with ATG8-family-specific functions during autophagosome formation, on residues absent in the LC3 family. Furthermore, PCM1-GABARAP-positive centriolar satellites colocalize with forming autophagosomes. PCM1 enhances GABARAP/WIPI2/p62-positive autophagosome formation and flux but has no significant effect on LC3B-positive autophagosome formation. These data suggest a mechanism for how centriolar satellites can specifically regulate an ATG8 ortholog, the centrosomal GABARAP reservoir, and centrosome-autophagosome crosstalk.

IntAct

Open source database system and analysis tools for molecular interaction data. All interactions are derived from literature curation or direct user submissions. Direct user submissions of molecular interaction data are encouraged, which may be deposited prior to publication in a peer-reviewed journal. The IntAct Database contains (Jun. 2014): * 447368 Interactions * 33021 experiments * 12698 publications * 82745 Interactors IntAct provides a two-tiered view of the interaction data. The search interface allows the user to iteratively develop complex queries, exploiting the detailed annotation with hierarchical controlled vocabularies. Results are provided at any stage in a simplified, tabular view. Specialized views then allows "zooming in" on the full annotation of interactions, interactors and their properties. IntAct source code and data are freely available.

IMEx - The International Molecular Exchange Consortium

Interaction database from international collaboration between major public interaction data providers who share curation effort and develop set of curation rules when capturing data from both directly deposited interaction data or from publications in peer reviewed journals. Performs complete curation of all protein-protein interactions experimentally demonstrated within publication and makes them available in single search interface on common website. Provides data in standards compliant download formats. IMEx partners produce their own separate resources, which range from all encompassing molecular interaction databases, such as are maintained by IntAct, MINT and DIP, organism-centric resources such as BioGrid or MPIDB or biological domain centric, such as MatrixDB. They have committed to making records available, via PSICQUIC webservice, which have been curated to IMEx rules and are available to users as single, non-redundant set of curated publications which can be searched at the IMEx website. Data is made available in standards-compliant tab-deliminated and XML formats, enabling to visualize data using wide range of tools. Consortium is open to participation of additional partners and encourages deposition of data, prior to publication, and will supply unique accession numbers which may be referenced within final article. Submitters may send their data directly to any of member databases using variety of formats, but should conform to guidelines as to minimum information required to describe data.

BiblioSpec

BiblioSpec enables the identification of peptides from tandem mass spectra by searching against a database of previously identified spectra. This suite of software tools is for creating and searching MS/MS peptide spectrum libraries. BiblioSpec is available free of charge for noncommercial use through an interactive web-site at http://depts.washington.edu/ventures/UW_Technology/Express_Licenses/bibliospec.php The BiblioSpec package contains the following programs: * BlibBuild creates a library of peptide MS/MS spectra from MS2 files. * BlibFilter removes redundant spectra from a library. * BlibSearch searches a spectrum library for matches to query spectra, reporting the results in an SQT file. In addition to the primary programs, the following auxiliary programs are available: * BlibStats writes summary statistics describing a library. * BlibToMS2 writes a library in MS2 file format. * BlibUpdate adds, deletes, or annotates spectra. * BlibPpMS2 processes spectra (bins peaks, removes noise, normalizes intensity) as done in BlibSearch and prints the resulting spectra to a text file. Several reference libraries are available for download. These libraries are updated regularly and are for use under the Linux operating system. You will find libraries for * Escherichia coli * Saccharomyces cerevisiae * Caenorhabditis elegans
