Mapping the functional domains of the Golgi stacking factor GRASP65.

ABSTRACT: The Golgi reassembly stacking protein (GRASP) family has been implicated in the stacking of Golgi cisternae and the regulation of Golgi disassembly/reassembly during mitosis in mammalian cells. GRASP65 is a dimer that can directly link adjacent surfaces through trans-oligomerization in a mitotically regulated manner. Here we show that the N-terminal GRASP domain (amino acids 1-201) is both necessary and sufficient for dimerization and trans-oligomerization but is not mitotically regulated. The C-terminal serine/proline-rich domain (amino acids 202-446) cannot dimerize nor can it link adjacent surfaces. It does, however, confer mitotic regulation on the GRASP domain through multiple sites phosphorylated by the mitotic kinases, cdc2/B1, and the polo-like kinase. Transient expression corroborated these results by showing that the GRASP domain alone inhibited mitotic fragmentation of the Golgi apparatus.
