Unformatted text preview: hang, Y. et al. 2009. Cell Volume oanna Agwa and Mariam Mahroos SEPA 1 in the Mediation of Recognition and Degradation of P Granule components by Autophagy Outline P granules P granules What are P granules? Accumulate in germ line cells but not somatic cells (Strome and Wood, 1981) Oocyte derived cytoplasmic components, possible role in germ line specification (Pitt, 2001) Autophagy: The Machinery Atg1 P Atg 8 and Atg 12 Atg6/Vps34 Atg9 Klionsky, 2005 and Suzuki, K; and Ohsumi, Y. 2007 Autophagy: The Physiological significance Physiological importance: Removal of aggregated proteins What is known? p62 may link protein aggregates to autophagy Possibly via interaction with Atg8 (Bjorkoy et al., 2005; Pankiv et al., 2007) What is unknown? The process for depletion of P granule aggregates in somatic cells The Purpose of the Study 1.) How they form in somatic cells 1A.) Formation of P granules in absence of autophagy Results: Inactivation of lgg-1 leads to accumulation of PGL-1 granules in somatic cells Staining with K76 determined dispersal of granules in somatic cell cytoplasm 1A.) Formation of P granules in absence of autophagy Results: Co-staining with anti-PGL-1 and anti-PGL-3 showed both P granule components co-localized to granules in somatic cells Other autophagy mutants also showed formation of granules in somatic cells 1A.) Formation of P granules in absence of autophagy Conclusion: Autophagy prevents formation of P granules in somatic cells. Traces of P Granule components found in membrane bound somatic cells Methods Immunoelectron microscopy Incubated sections of early stage wild-type embryos with k76 Then incubated with gold-conjugated secondary anti-body Results Gold particles only rarely observed EM sections found PGL in 9 membrane bound structures Traces of P Granule components found in membrane bound somatic cells Conclusion: P granule components are degraded by autophagy 1.) How they form in somatic cells 1....
