MCB 130L Part 2 Lecture 3

Transfection and

Protein localization


Slide2 l.jpg

Exploring protein function

1) Where is it localized in the cell?

Approaches:

a) Make antibodies - immunofluorescence

b) “Express” the protein in cells with a tag

 Fuse to GFP

2) What is it doing in the cell?

Approaches:

a) Reduce protein levels - RNA interference

b) Increase protein levels “over-express”

c) “Express” mutant versions

Exploring protein function

1) Where is it localized in the cell?

Approaches:

a) Make antibodies - immunofluorescence

b) “Express” the protein in cells with a tag

 Fuse to GFP

2) What is it doing in the cell?

Approaches:

a) Reduce protein levels - RNA interference

b) Increase protein levels “over-express”

c) “Express” mutant versions

Transfection!!!!


Slide4 l.jpg

Transfection =

Introduction of DNA into mammalian cells

Gene is transcribed and translated into protein

= “expressed”


Slide5 l.jpg

Direct introduction of the DNA

Electroporation - electric field temporarily disrupts plasma membrane

Biolistics (gene gun)- fire DNA coated particles into cell

Microinjection


Slide6 l.jpg

Infection:

Use recombinant viruses to deliver DNA

Retroviruses

Adenoviruses

Virally-mediated introduction of the DNA


Slide7 l.jpg

Carrier-mediated introduction of the DNA

Positively charged carrier molecules are mixed with the DNA and added to cell culture media:

Calcium Phosphate

DEAE Dextran

liposomes

micelles

Carrier-DNA complexes bind to plasma membrane and are taken up


Slide8 l.jpg

Types of Transfection

Transient:

Expression assayed 24-48 hours post transfection

Stable:

Integration of the transfected DNA into the cell genome - selectable marker like neomycin resistance required

“stably transfected” cell line

DNA “expression” vector transfected:

GFP

PROTEIN Y

PROTEIN

GFP

Z


Slide11 l.jpg

EXPERIMENT:

Transfect unknown GFP fusion protein

Protein X, Y or Z

Visualize GFP protein fluorescence by fluorescence microscopy in living cells

Counter-stain with known marker to compare localization patterns inliving cells

= “vital stain”


Slide12 l.jpg

Some Cellular Organelles


Slide13 l.jpg

Nuclei

Mitochondria

Secretory Pathway:

Endoplasmic Reticulum

Golgi Complex

Endocytotic Pathway:

Endosomes

  • Compartments/organelles examined

  • Protein sequences sufficient for localization

  • Vital stains


Slide14 l.jpg

Nucleus

Transport through nuclear pore

signal = basic amino acid stretches

example: P-P-K-K-K-R-K-V


Slide15 l.jpg

Import of proteins into nucleus through nuclear pore


Slide16 l.jpg

Nuclear Stain:

Hoechst 33258 binds DNA


Slide17 l.jpg

Mitochondria

Transmembrane transport signal

Example: H2N-M-L-S-L-R-Q-S-I-R-F-F-K-P-A-A-T-R-T-L-C-S-S-R-Y-L-L


Slide18 l.jpg

Protein being transported across mitochondrial membranes


Slide19 l.jpg

Mitochondrial dye = MitoTracker Red

Diffuses through membranes

Non-fluorescent until oxidized

Accumulates in mitochondria and oxidized

Mitotracker

Cellular components of the secretory and endocytic pathways


Slide21 l.jpg

Endoplasmic Reticulum

Entry into E.R.:

Transmembrane transport signal

= hydrophobic amino acid stretches

Example:H2N-M-M-S-F-V-S-L-L-V-G-I-L-F-W-A-T-E-A-E-Q-L-T-K-C-E-V-F-Q

at amino terminus

Retention in E.R. lumen:

Signal = K-D-E-L-COOH

at carboxy terminus

Slide24 l.jpg

Golgi

From the ER, secreted and membrane proteins move to the Golgi, a

series of membrane-bound compartments found near the nucleus

nucleus


Slide25 l.jpg

Golgi marker

BODIPY-TR ceramide

Ceramide = lipid

When metabolized, concentrates in the Golgi

Red fluorophore

Slide28 l.jpg

Endocytosis can be divided into 3 categories:

1. Phagocytosis - “eating”

2. Pinocytosis - “sipping”

3. Receptor-mediated endocytosis:

deliberate uptake of specific molecules

Slide30 l.jpg

Endosomes - pinch off from plasma membrane

Clathrin -coated pits and vesicles


Slide31 l.jpg

RECEPTOR-MEDIATED ENDOCYTOSIS occurs through special

membrane sites coated with the protein CLATHRIN.

Receptors interact with clathrin indirectly, through

ADAPTIN proteins.

Coated membrane buds that contain clathrin, adaptins, and receptors bound to their ligands pinch off to form coated vesicles.


Slide32 l.jpg

Iron is carried in

blood by the protein

TRANSFERRIN

and is taken up into

cells by endocytosis

mediated by the

TRANSFERRIN

RECEPTOR

Inside the endosome

Fe3+ is released.

Transferrin receptors

then return to the

cell surface, where

the transferrin

dissociates


Slide33 l.jpg

Rhodamine transferrin

Does the fluorescent green protein co-localize?

  • TODAY:

  • Transfect Cells transiently with unknown protein X, Y or Z fused to GFP

  • In two days:

  • Vital stain with another dye to compare

  • Visualize both GFP and dyein the same living cells! by fluorescence microscopy

Where are the unknown proteins localized???
