ABSTRACT Several subunits of the class III phosphatidylinositol-3-OH kinase (PI(3)K-III) complex are known as tumour suppressors. Here we uncover a function for this complex and its catalytic product phosphatidylinositol-3-phosphate (PtdIns(3)P) in cytokinesis. We show that PtdIns(3)P localizes to the midbody during cytokinesis and recruits a centrosomal protein, FYVE-CENT (ZFYVE26), and its binding partner TTC19, which in turn interacts with CHMP4B, an endosomal sorting complex required for transport (ESCRT)-III subunit implicated in the abscission step of cytokinesis. Translocation of FYVE-CENT and TTC19 from the centrosome to the midbody requires another FYVE-CENT-interacting protein, the microtubule motor KIF13A. Depletion of the VPS34 or Beclin 1 subunits of PI(3)K-III causes cytokinesis arrest and an increased number of binucleate and multinucleate cells, in a similar manner to the depletion of FYVE-CENT, KIF13A or TTC19. These results provide a mechanism for the translocation and docking of a cytokinesis regulatory machinery at the midbody.

    ABSTRACT: Cytokinesis mediates the physical separation of dividing cells after chromosome segregation. In animal cell cytokinesis, a contractile ring, mainly composed of actin and myosin filaments, ingresses a cleavage furrow midway between the two spindle poles. A distinct machinery, involving the endosomal sorting complex required for transport III (ESCRT-III), subsequently splits the plasma membrane of nascent daughter cells in a process termed abscission. Here, we provide a brief overview of early cytokinesis events in animal cells and then cover in depth recently emerging models for the assembly and function of the abscission machinery and its temporal coordination with chromosome segregation.

    ABSTRACT: The myotubularins are a family of phosphatases that dephosphorylate the phosphatidylinositols PI3P and PI3,5P. Several family members are mutated in disease, yet the biological functions of the majority of myotubularins remain unknown. To gain insight into the roles of the individual enzymes, we have used affinity purification coupled to mass spectrometry (AP-MS) to identify protein-protein interactions for the myotubularins. The myotubularin interactome comprises 66 high confidence (FDR ≤1%) interactions, including 18 pairwise interactions between individual myotubularins. The results reveal a number of potential signalling contexts for this family of enzymes, including an intriguing, novel role for MTMR3 and MTMR4 in the regulation of abscission, the final step of mitosis in which the membrane bridge remaining between two daughter cells is cleaved. Both depletion and overexpression of either MTMR3 or MTMR4 result in abnormal midbody morphology and cytokinesis failure. Interestingly, MTMR3 and MTMR4 do not exert their effects through lipid regulation at the midbody, but regulate abscission during early mitosis, by interacting with the mitotic kinase PLK1, and with CEP55, an important regulator of abscission. Structure-function analysis reveals that, consistent with known intramyotubularin interactions, MTMR3 and MTMR4 interact through their respective coiled coil domains. The interaction between MTMR3 and PLK1 relies on the divergent, non-lipid binding FYVE domain of MTMR3, and MTMR4 interacts with CEP55 through a short GPPXXXY motif, analogous to ESCRT-I components. Disruption of any of these interactions results in abscission failure, by disrupting the proper recruitment of CEP55, and subsequently, of ESCRT-I, to the midbody. Our data suggest that MTMR3 and MTMR4 may act as a bridge between CEP55 and PLK1, ensuring proper CEP55 phosphorylation and regulating CEP55 recruitment to the midbody. This work provides a novel role for MTMR3/4 heterodimers, and highlights the temporal and spatial complexity of the regulation of cytokinesis.

    ABSTRACT: Abscission is the final step of cytokinesis that involves the cleavage of the intercellular bridge connecting the two daughter cells. Recent studies have given novel insight into the spatiotemporal regulation and molecular mechanisms controlling abscission in cultured yeast and human cells. The mechanisms of abscission in living metazoan tissues are however not well understood. Here we show that ALIX and the ESCRT-III component Shrub are required for completion of abscission during Drosophila female germline stem cell (fGSC) division. Loss of ALIX or Shrub function in fGSCs leads to delayed abscission and the consequent formation of stem cysts in which chains of daughter cells remain interconnected to the fGSC via midbody rings and fusome. We demonstrate that ALIX and Shrub interact and that they co-localize at midbody rings and midbodies during cytokinetic abscission in fGSCs. Mechanistically, we show that the direct interaction between ALIX and Shrub is required to ensure cytokinesis completion with normal kinetics in fGSCs. We conclude that ALIX and ESCRT-III coordinately control abscission in Drosophila fGSCs and that their complex formation is required for accurate abscission timing in GSCs in vivo.
