Lectures 21 and 22: The regulation and mechanics of cell division

  • Today - cell cycle (regulation of cell division)

    • Cell proliferation

    • The eukaryotic cell cycle

    • Measuring the cell cycle

    • Models of the cell cycle: from fungi to frogs

    • The cell cycle is regulated by cyclin-dependent kinases

  • Next time - mechanisms of cell division


A cell cycle is one round of growth and division l.jpg

A cell cycle is one round of growth and division

Cells only come from pre-existing cells

cytokinesis

mitosis

Growth and division must be carefully regulated

Unregulated cell growth = cancer


The eukaryotic cell cycle is partitioned into four phases l.jpg

4C 2C

2C 4C

The eukaryotic cell cycle is partitioned into four “phases”

Division occurs in “M-phase:” “mitosis” and “cytokinesis” (<1 hr)

Most cell growth occurs during “G1” (6-20+ hrs; duplicate organelles, double in size)

DNA replication occurs during “S-phase” (4-10+ hrs)…

“G2” prepares cells for division (1-6+ hrs)…

G1+S+G2=“Interphase”

Division = “M-phase”

A “typical” cell cycle for animal cells is 24-48 hrs long, but varies…

We will take a historical perspective to ‘triggers’


Regulating the eukaryotic cell cycle studies in four model organisms l.jpg

Regulating the eukaryotic cell cycle: studies in four model organisms

See HWK 618-619

  • Marine invertebrates:

    • Surf clam (Spisula)

    • Sea urchins and starfish

  • Frog eggs and embryos:

    • Rana pipiens (Northern leopard frog)

    • Xenopus laevis (African clawed frog)

  • Cultured cells

    • HeLa (Human cervical carcinoma)

  • Yeast cell division cycle (“cdc”) mutants:

    • Saccharomyces cerevisiae “budding” yeast

    • Schizosaccharamyces pombe “fission” yeast

2. Frogs: unfertilized eggs contain an M-phase Promoting Factor

ECB 18-9

Control expt;

Transfer interphase cytoplasm to interphase cell - no effect

Nucleus

Egg in

“M-phase”

Oocyte in

“interphase”

Oocyte “matures” (enters M-phase)…

Transfer of cytoplasm from egg to oocyte induces M-phase: “M-phase promoting factor (MPF)”

Not restricted to egg cytoplasm - Any M-phase cytoplasm will induce M-phase

3. Surf clams and sea urchins: the abundance of “cyclin” proteins varies with the cell cycle

Continuously label fertilized eggs with 35S-methionine

Analyze incorporation into proteins by SDS-PAGE

  • “Cyclin” abundance varies with cell cycle:

    • continuously synthesized…

    • degraded at end of M-phase

  • Cyclin B mRNA induces M-phase when injected into Xenopus oocytes

Peak MPF induces M-phase

ECB 18-6

Abundance of “cyclins” in clam eggs varies with the cell cycle

Three models of the eukaryotic cell cycle

  • Bringing it all together

    • Cyclin B mRNA (clam) induces M-phase in frog oocytes

    • cdc13 encodes a yeast cyclin

    • MPF consists of frog cdc2 homolog and cyclin B

ECB 18-11 and 18-12

  • “MPF” contains two components:

    • cdc2gene product =catalytic subunit of protein kinase

    • cyclin B (CLB = cdc13):regulatory subunit activates kinase

  • MPF = “Cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK1)”

  • MPF (CDK1) activity is also regulated by phosphorylation

    • wee 1 is inhibitory kinase

    • cdc25 is activating phosphatase

“Switching on” CDK1 (MPF) drives cell into M-phase

  • Metaphase (mid-M)

    • High cyclin B

    • MPF (CDK1) active

  • Prophase (early-M)

    • Activation of CDK1 by cyclin and cdc25

  • Interphase

    • APC is turned off

  • Telophase (late-M)

    • Low cyclin B

    • MPF inactive

    Review:

    ECB 18-6

    Accumulation of cyclin B above threshold activates MPF (CDK1) and promotes entry into M-phase

    Activation of APC by MPF promotes cyclin destruction, MPF inactivation, and exit from M-phase

    Done M-phase

    Multiple CDKs regulate progression through the cell cycle

    G1-CDKs; drive cells through G1 (won’t discuss)

    S-phase cyclins and CDKs regulate DNA replication

    Degradation of S-phase cyclins promotes exit from S-phase into G2

    ECB 18-13


    S cdk regulates dna replication l.jpg

    S-Cdk regulates DNA replication

    Origin recognition complex - protein scaffolding for assembly of other proteins

    Cdc6 increases in G1; binds ORC and induces binding of other proteins forming pre-replicative complex

    Origin is ready to fire

    ECB 18-14

    Active S-Cdk

    1- phosphorylates ORC causing origin to fire = replication

    2-phosphorylates Cdc6 leading to ubiquitination and degradation

    Cdc6 not made until next G1 - prevents origin from double firing


    Completion of critical cellular processes is monitored at cell cycle check points l.jpg

    Completion of critical cellular processes is monitored at cell cycle “check points”

    ECB 18-17

    • Is DNA undamaged?

    • Is DNA replicated?

    • Is cell big enough?

    • Yes? Enter M phase

    • Have all chromosomes

    • attached to spindle?

    • Yes? Proceed to anaphase

    • Is the cell big enough?

    • Is the environment favorable?

    • Is DNA undamaged?

    • Yes? Enter S phase

    Of these, the G1/S checkpoint for damaged DNA is best understood

    The DNA damage checkpoint: p53 induced expression of an S-phase CDK inhibitor

    p53

    (inactive)

    DNA damage activates p53

    Active p53 acts as a transcription factor to turn on genes, including p21

    p21 protein inhibits G1/S phase CDKs, blocking entry into S-phase

    Cell arrests in G1 until damage repaired, or undergoes apoptosis (programmed cell death)

    DNA

    ECB 18-15

    P21 binds and

    inactivates S-phase CDK

    Active S-phase CDK


    If checkpoint is activated l.jpg

    If checkpoint is activated

    Exit cell cycle

    neurons

    most plant cells

    Or undergo apoptosis (in a minute)


    Zones of division and growth in plant roots l.jpg

    Zones of division and growth in plant roots

    Arabidopsis thaliana

    Only a fraction of cells still actively dividing

    Zone of differentiation - cells cease growing and terminally differentiate

    Zone of cell elongation - growth but not division; Cells in G0

    Meristem - zone of active cell division cells remain in cell cycle

    Regulation of each zone is not well understood in plants but involves hormones

    In animals:

    mitogens stimulate cell proliferation (block checkpoints)

    growth factors stimulate cell growth (stimulate biosynthesis, inhibit degradation)


    Apoptosis a tale of tadpole tails and mouse paws what do they have in common l.jpg

    ECB figure 18-19

    Tadpole tails are

    resorbed during

    metamorphosis

    ECB figure 18-18

    Paws develop from “paddles”

    Apoptosis: A tale of tadpole tails and mouse pawswhat do they have in common?

    Both processes involve “programmed cell death (apoptosis)”

    ECB - “programmed cell death is a commonplace, normal, and benign event. It is the inappropriate proliferation and survival of cells that presents real dangers”


    Apoptosis is visibly distinct from necrosis l.jpg

    Necrosis (cell death following injury) often results in lysis, spilling the contents into the surrounding space and causing inflamation

    During apoptosis (“programmed cell death”), cells remain intact and condense

    Corpses of apoptotic cells are often engulfed by their neighbors or specialized phagocytic cells

    Apoptosis is visibly distinct from necrosis

    ECB 18-20


    Apoptosis is mediated by a caspase cascade l.jpg

    Death protein

    Inactive

    Active

    “Caspases” are proteases; inactive precursors activated by proteolysis

    Presence of suicide signals and/or withdrawal of needed survival factor activates first caspase in cascade

    Survival factor

    Apoptosis is mediated by a “caspase cascade”

    Caspase

    (inactive)

    Initial caspase proteolytically activates downstream caspases

    …which activate additional caspases, and so on

    Activated caspases degrade nuclear and cytoplasmic proteins (lamins, cytoskeletal proteins, etc)…

    Activated endonucleases cut chromosomal DNA…

    ECB 18-21


    Caspase cascade must be carefully regulated l.jpg
