Exploring Primary Cilia Functions by APEX-based Proximity Labeling

BIOTEC External Seminar

Date:13.05.2016, 11:00 - 12:00
Speaker: David Mick, PhD (Stanford University School of Medicine, Dept. of Molecular and Cellular Physiology, Stanford, USA)
Location: CRTD, Auditorium left
Host: Joerg Mansfeld


The primary cilium is a central signaling hub that provides a special compartment by dynamically concentrating signaling molecules to generate adequate responses to external stimuli. To fulfill this function, cilia require specific trafficking machineries that enable rapid changes of the ciliary protein content in response to various signals. Yet, the extent of the signaling functions regulated by mammalian cilia remains unclear because of the limited means to identify ciliary proteins in an unbiased and highly sensitive manner.

To overcome our inability to purify primary cilia with classic biochemical purification methods, we established a proximity labeling approach using cilia-targeted ascorbate peroxidase (cilia-APEX) to specifically biotinylate ciliary proteins in living cells allowing effective isolation and identification by mass-spectrometric methods. Besides identifying known and novel cilia-resident proteins, cilia-APEX uncovered PKA and AMPK as signaling kinases that constantly survey the ciliary interior. Furthermore, proteomics profiling of Ift27/Bbs19 mutant cilia correctly detected BBSome accumulation inside Ift27-/- cilia and revealed that β‑arrestin 2 and the viral receptor CAR are candidate cargoes of the BBSome. Our work demonstrates that proximity labeling can be applied to proteomics of non-membrane-enclosed organelles and suggests that proteomics profiling of cilia will enable a rapid characterization of ciliopathies. Expanding this powerful methodology to explore the temporal protein distribution in cilia under different physiological conditions will provide insights into how the cilium generates its unique signaling environment.

Location: CRTD
Host: Elly Tanaka

The program will include talks of great scientists, presentations of last years postdoctoral seed grants awardees as well as several short poster teasers in the morning followed by the poster sessions in the afternoon. Of course this will be followed by our legendary Summer Party as social event in the yard of the CRTD / BIOZ.

Confirmed speakers:
Henrik Semb, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Didier Stainier, Max Planck Institute for Heart and Lung Research, Bad Nauheim, Germany

New interactive poster session

- An online abstract book will be available to all registrants.
- Posters will be arranged by research areas.
- All posters will be presented within 5 minute slots in parallel poster sessions.
- CRTD will award postdoctoral seed grants based on interactions of poster participants (max. 15.000 EUR). Please use the abstract book to prepare yourself and the breaks at the poster session to start discussing putative projects and collaborations. Submit a proposal online until 15.08.2016 to Andrea Meinhardt (andrea.meinhardt(at)crt-dresden.de). Upon positive evaluation the applicants can start their project on 01.10.2016.
