Zusammenfassung
Microtubule behavior changes during the cell cycle and during spindle assembly. However it remains unclear how these changes are regulated and coordinated. We describe a complex that targets the Protein Phosphatase 2A holoenzyme (PP2A) to centrosomes in C. elegans embryos. This complex includes RSA-1, a targeting subunit for PP2A, and RSA-2, a protein that binds and recruits RSA-1 to centrosomes. In contrast to the multiple functions of the PP2A catalytic subunit, RSA-1 and RSA-2 are specifically required for microtubule outgrowth from centrosomes and for spindle assembly. The centrosomally localized RSA-PP2A complex mediates these functions in part by regulating two critical mitotic effectors: the microtubule destabilizer KLP-7 and the C. elegans regulator of spindle assembly TPXL-1. Therefore, by recruiting the PP2A catalytic subunit to centrosomes, the RSA complex regulates a subset of PP2A functions in order to coordinate microtubule outgrowth from centrosomes and microtubule stability in the forming mitotic spindle.
