Increased separase activity and occurrence of centrosome aberrations concur with transformation of MDS.
ESPL1 / separase, a cysteine endopeptidase, is a key player in centrosome duplication and mitotic sister chromatid separation. aberrant expression and / or modified separase proteolytic activity associated with centrosome amplification, aneuploidy, tumorigenesis and progression of the disease. Since centrosome changes are common and early feature detected in patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and the deviation cytogenetic play an important role in the risk stratification of disease, we tested the activity of separase at the level of single cells in the marrow samples 67 bone obtained from patients with MDS, secondary acute myeloid leukemia (SAML), de novo acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and healthy controls by flow cytometric separase activity test.
Separase Activity Distribution (SAD) value, calculated for the size of the cells with prominent separase activity in the samples analyzed, tested for correlation with the centrosome, karyotype and gene mutation status. We find the values of SAD are higher in the patient’s bone marrow cells compared to the corresponding SAML MDS patients’ cells.
This concurs with the increased incidence of aberrant centrosome phenotype in MDS vs SAML samples. No correlation was found between the values of SAD and mutation status karyotype / gen. During the follow-up of four MDS patients we observed an increase in the value of the SAD after transformation into SAML, two patients SAD value decreases during azacitidine therapy. cell culture experiments using cells of MDS-L as an in vitro model of MDS revealed that treatment with rigosertib, PLK1 inhibitors and therapeutic drugs known to induce G2 / M capture, results in a decrease in the value of SAD.
In conclusion, the appearance of cells with high levels of activity separase unusual, as indicated by the increased value of the SAD, agreed with the transformation of MDS to SAML and may reflect the potentially separase dysregulation contributes to clonal evolution during the progression of MDS. Separase measurement activities may therefore be useful as a new additional molecular markers for monitoring the disease.
Separase Detection Sensor Cleavage Live Event Using Mouse oocytes.
Separase proteolytic eliminate cohesin complex of sister chromatid arm in meiosis I, which are essential for chromosome segregation. Regulation separase activity is essential for proper cell cycle progression and proper chromosome segregation. Onset separase endogenous activity has not been observed in oocytes.
We live here describe a method for detecting separase activity in vivo mouse oocytes. This method utilizes previously described cleavage sensor consists of H2B-mCherry fused with Scc1 (aa 107-268) -YFP. Sensors division loaded on chromosome through the H2B-tag, and the signals from both mCherry and YFP visible. Upon activation separase Scc1 fragment cleaved and YFP dissociates from chromosomes. Changes in the ratio between mCherry and YFP fluorescence intensity is reading separase activity.
anaphase onset is irreversible cell cycle transitions triggered by protease activation Separase. Separase splitting Mcd1 (also known as Scc1) subunit of cohesin, a protein complex that physically connects the sister chromatids, triggering chromatid separation. Separase governed by degradation of anaphase inhibitor Securin freeing of inhibition of complex Separase Securin / Separase. In many organisms, Securin important not show that Separase governed by additional mechanisms.

In this work, we show that the yeast starter Separase activate Cdk1 (Esp1 in yeast) through phosphorylation to trigger the onset of anaphase. Esp1 activation by a protein phosphatase 2A regulatory subunit associated with Cdc55 (PP2ACdc55) and Slk19 spindle protein.
