GeneCards Summary for CEP131 Gene

CEP131 (Centrosomal Protein 131kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and Cell Cycle, Mitotic.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CEP131 Gene

  • Component of centriolar satellites contributing to build a complex and dynamic network required to regulate cilia/flagellum formation. In proliferating cells, MIB1-mediated ubiquitination induces its sequestration within centriolar satellites, precluding untimely cilia formation initiation. In contrast, during normal and ultraviolet or heat shock cellular stress-induced ciliogenesis, its non-ubiquitinated form is rapidly displaced from centriolar satellites and recruited to centrosome/basal bodies in a microtubule- and p38 MAPK-dependent manner. Acts also as a negative regulator of BBSome ciliary trafficking. Plays a role in sperm flagellar formation; may be involved in the regulation of intraflagellar transport (IFT) and/or intramanchette (IMT) trafficking, which are important for axoneme extension and/or cargo delivery to the nascent sperm tail. Required for optimal cell proliferation and cell cycle progression; may play a role in the regulation of genome stability and centriole duplication in non-ciliogenic cells.

    Protein attributes for CEP131 Gene

    Size:
    1083 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    122149 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Self-associates. Associates with the centriolar satellite BBSome protein complex. Interacts with BBS4; the interaction limits BBS4 availability for association with the BBSome complex, and hence negatively regulates ciliary localization of the BBSome complex. Interacts with MIB1. Interacts with PCM1; the interaction increases in response to ultraviolet light (UV) radiation. Associates with microtubule; association to microtubule is reduced in response to cellular stress, such as UV stimulation, in a process that requires p38 MAP kinase signaling. Interacts with CEP290, DCTN1 and PCNT.
    Miscellaneous:
    • Transient cell cultured-based knock-down (by RNAi) of CPE131 leads to a reduction in ciliogenesis (PubMed:17954613, PubMed:24121310). However, analysis of mice with chronic absence of CPE131 following genetic deletion (knockout), show that cilia develop and function normally in vivo. This suggests that CPE131 is not essential for ciliogenesis, except for the modified cilia of the developing sperm flagella, and that there is alternative mechanism to compensate for the lack of CPE131.

Post-translational modifications for CEP131 Gene

  • Ubiquitinated. Undergoes monoubiquitination catalyzed by the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase MIB1 in proliferating cells, preventing cilia formation. Monoubiquitination by MIB1 is inhibited in response to cellular stress, such as ultraviolet light (UV) radiation or heat shock, resulting in cilia formation initiation.

Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome, centriolar satellite. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, cilium basal body. Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle, acrosome. Note=Colocalized with pericentriolar material protein PCM1 at centriolar satellites. During spermiogenesis, becomes enriched with nephrocystin NPHP1 at the transition zone, a structure at the base of the ciliary axoneme important for regulating traffic into the ciliary compartment. Traffics towards and away from the centrosome/basal body and the transition zone of the ciliary axoneme in a microtubule-dependent manner. Localized at the Golgi-derived acrosome and the centrosome-containing head-tail coupling apparatus (HTCA) (By similarity). Ubiquitinated form is sequestred and colocalized with BBS4, CEP290, PCM1 and PCNT at centriolar satellites in proliferating cells. Colocalized with the pericentriolar material protein PCM1 at centrosome. Traffics towards and away from centriolar satellites and centrosome in a microtubule- and dynein-dependent manner in interphase cells. Displaced from centriolar satellites but still remained associated with centrosome in response to cellular stress, such as ultraviolet light (UV) radiation or heat shock, in a process that requires p38 MAPK signaling. {ECO:0000250}.
