Title: Studies on the intracellular localization of hHR23B

Abstract

Yeast Rad23, originally identified as a DNA repair protein, has been proposed to participate in other cellular functions, i.e., the proteasome-degradation pathway, the process of spindle pole body duplication and as a component of the anaphase checkpoint. Two human homologs of yeast Rad23, hHR23A and hHR23B, exhibit high sequence homology with yRad23 and also have been shown to be involved in DNA repair and proteasome-dependent degradation. Previous studies on the intracellular localization of hHR23A and hHR23B revealed their predominant localization in the nucleus during interphase and in the cytoplasm during mitosis. We have analyzed the localization of hHR23B during all the phases of the cell cycle using immunofluorescence. Unlike previous studies, our results suggest localization of hHR23B in the nucleus as well as in the cytoplasm during G1 phase. The nuclear levels of hHR23B decrease during S-phase of the cell cycle. When the cell enters mitosis, hHR23B relocalizes in the cytoplasm without association with chromatin. These results indicate that the intracellular distribution hHR23B is cell cycle dependent.

  • The peroxidase-labeled antibody method was employed for immunohistochemical localization of intracellular and extracellular antigens with SEM. With this method, the antigenic sites may be localized with high sensitivity on tissue sections mounted on carbon-coated glass slides by detecting 0s04-DAB complexes using the backscatter mode. The sections may be fresh frozen fixed on slide, frozen sections of fixed tissue, or sections of immunostained tissue embedded in epon. The method introduces another utilization of SEM and the immunoenzyme histochemistry.
  • The cellular content of phospholipid transfer activity in Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides was examined as a function of both oxygen partial pressure and light intensity used for growth. Cells grown under high light conditions (100 W/m/sup 2/) had over two times the cellular level of phospholipid transfer activity when compared with cells grown under other conditions. Although cells grown under low light conditions (3 W/m/sup 2/) had the lowest amount of total phospholipid transfer activity, they had the highest level (49%) of membrane-associated transfer activity. The soluble phospholipid transfer activity was further localized into periplasmic and cytoplasmic fractions. The distribution of phospholipidmore » transfer activity in cells grown under medium light intensity (10 W/m/sup 2/) was calculated as 15.1% membrane-associated, 32.4% in the periplasm, and 52.5% in the cytoplasm. The phospholipid transfer activities in the periplasmic and cytoplasmic fractions had distinctly different properties with respect to their molecular weights (56,000 versus 27,000) and specificities of transfer.« less
  • Putative membrane invagination sites at which intracytoplasmic photosynthetic membrane growth is initiated in Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides can be isolated in an upper pigmented fraction by rate-zone sedimentation. The intracellular localization of membranes present in the isolated fraction was investigated with the impermeant surface-labeling reagent pyridoxal 5'-phosphate, which has been shown to diffuse into the periplasmic space and to label proteins of both the peripheral cytoplasmic membrane and the mature intracytoplasmic membrane. A comparison of the extent of labeling at 25 and 0/sup 0/C was consistent with the possibility that membranes present in the upper pigmented fraction arise from sites near themore » cell periphery. Pronase digestion of the surface-labeled membranes suggested further that the purified upper fraction consisted largely of open membrane fragments and that the majority of the intracytoplasmic membrane is labeled by this procedure. The pigmented membrane growth initiation sites were separated partially from undifferent respiratory cytoplasmic membrane also present in the upper fraction.« less
