AbstractThe Schizosaccharomyces pombe Flp1p serine-threonine phosphatase is required for the degradation of the mitotic inducer Cdc25p at the end of mitosis. Cdc25p degradation prevents Cdc2p-tyrosine 15 dephosphorylation and, thus, contributes to the timely inactivation of mitotic CDK-associated kinase activity. Both RING- and HECT-type protein-ubiquitin ligases are involved in Cdc25p destabilization. Flp1p function is required for Cdc25p ubiquitination via anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome or APC/C (RING-type) and the absence of Pub1p (HECT-type) stabilizes the mitotic inducer. In the present report, we study the functional relationship of Flp1p with Pub1p and Pub2p HECT-type-protein ubiquitin ligases. We show that Flp1p is required for the rapid degradation of Cdc25p while Pub1p is responsible for the long-term destabilization of the mitotic inducer. Accordingly, flp1 and pub1 mutants have a strong genetic interaction, correlating defects in the coordination of mitosis and cytokinesis with the stabilization of hyperactive Cdc25p. However, we also show that Flp1 and Pub2p proteins functionally interact in vivo suggesting that both proteins belong to the same regulatory network in S. pombe cells. Thus Flp1p appears to have an important role in integrating HECT- and RING-type ubiquitin ligases in cell cycle control. ©2008 Landes Bioscience.
