Project Title:Torsin and NEP1R1-CTDNEP1 affect interphase NPC insertion by lipid-dependent and -independent mechanisms
Project Type:MS analysis performed by Lipotype on Drosophila larval fat body tissue
Project Summary:The interphase nuclear envelope is extensively remodeled during nuclear pore complex insertion. The process is relatively poorly understood, including why it requires the Torsin ATPases that also regulate NE-localized lipid metabolism. Here we show that fly dTorsin affects lipid metabolism through the NEP1R1-CTDNEP1 phosphatase/ Lipin phosphatidic acid phosphatase pathway. At a cellular level, fly and mouse Torsins removed NEP1R1-CTDNEP1 from the NE to, in turn, exclude Lipin from the nucleus. NEP1R1-CTDNEP1 downregulation also restored nuclear pore membrane fusion in post-mitotic dTorsinKO fat body cells. However, Lipin downregulation was ineffective and membrane fusion defects did not correlate with lipidomic abnormalities. Further testing confirmed that membrane fusion continued in cells with excess Lipin function. It also led to the surprising finding that excess PA metabolism inhibited recruitment of the inner ring complex Nup35 subunit, resulting in elongated channel-like structures in place of mature nuclear pores. We conclude that the NEP1R1-CTDNEP1 phosphatase affects interphase NPC biogenesis by lipid-dependent and lipid-independent mechanisms and this explains some of the pleiotropic effects of Torsins.
