Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) stimulates Rho GTPase and its effector, the formin mDia, to capture and stabilize microtubules in fibroblasts. We investigated whether mammalian EB1 and adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) function downstream of Rho–mDia in microtubule stabilization. A carboxy-terminal APC-binding fragment of EB1 (EB1-C) functioned as a dominant-negative inhibitor of microtubule stabilization induced by LPA or active mDia. Knockdown of EB1 with small interfering RNAs also prevented… Expand
Kif4 Interacts with EB1 and Stabilizes Microtubules Downstream of Rho-mDia in Migrating Fibroblasts
TLDR
It is shown that the mammalian homolog of Xenopus XKLP1, Kif4, is both necessary and sufficient for the induction of selective MT stabilization in fibroblasts and is identified as a novel factor in the Rho-mDia-EB1 MT stabilization pathway and cell migration. Expand
Microtubule assembly by the Apc protein is regulated by importin-β—RanGTP
Mutations in the tumour suppressor Adenomatous polyposis coli (Apc) initiate most sporadic colorectal cancers. Apc is implicated in regulating microtubule (MT) dynamics in interphase and mitosis.Expand
Amer2 Protein Interacts with EB1 Protein and Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) and Controls Microtubule Stability and Cell Migration*
TLDR
It is shown that Amer2 (APC membrane recruitment 2), a previously identified membrane-associated APC-binding protein, is a direct interaction partner of EB1 and acts as regulator of microtubule stability together with EB1. Expand
Regulated Binding of Adenomatous Polyposis Coli Protein to Actin*
TLDR
It is shown that purified carboxyl-terminal basic domain of human APC protein (APC-basic) bound directly to and bundled actin filaments and associated with actin stress fibers in microinjected cells, demonstrating that EB1-APC regulation is direct. Expand
The formin mDia2 stabilizes microtubules independently of its actin nucleation activity
TLDR
This work generated two actin mutants in a constitutively active version of mDia2 containing formin homology domains 1 and 2 and found that they still induced stable MTs and bound to the MT TIP proteins EB1 and APC, which have also been implicated in MT stabilization. Expand
Structural determinants for EB1-mediated recruitment of APC and spectraplakins to the microtubule plus end
TLDR
A repeat sequence in adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) that binds to EB1's COOH-terminal domain is defined and a similar sequence is identified in members of the microtubule actin cross-linking factor (MACF) family of spectraplakins to provide a structural understanding of how EB1 binds two regulators of microtubules-based cell polarity. Expand
APC and EB1 function together in mitosis to regulate spindle dynamics and chromosome alignment.
TLDR
Insight is provided into how APC may regulate mitotic spindle function and how errors in chromosome segregation are tolerated in tumor cells. Expand
Structural insights into the EB1–APC interaction
EB1 proteins bind to microtubule ends where they act in concert with other components, including the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) tumor suppressor, to regulate the microtubule filament system. WeExpand
Nup358 interacts with APC and plays a role in cell polarization
TLDR
The results indicate that Nup358 cooperates with kinesin-2 to regulate the localization of APC to the cell cortex through a nuclear-transport-independent mechanism, and reveal a more active role for structural nucleoporins in regulating fundamental cellular processes than previously anticipated. Expand
Role of CLASP2 in Microtubule Stabilization and the Regulation of Persistent Motility
TLDR
It is shown here that CLASP2 is required for the formation of a stable, polarized MT array but that CLIP-170 and an APC-EB1 interaction are not essential, and that persistent motility is also hampered in CLASp2-deficient MEFs. Expand

Regulation and function of the interaction between the APC tumour suppressor protein and EB1
TLDR
The interaction between APC and EB1 targets APC to microtubule tips, and that the interaction between the two proteins is down-regulated during mitosis by the previously described mitotic phosphorylation of APC. Expand
Binding of the adenomatous polyposis coli protein to microtubules increases microtubule stability and is regulated by GSK3β phosphorylation
TLDR
It is shown that binding of APC to microtubules increases microtubule stability in vivo and in vitro and confirms the hypothesis that APC is involved in stabilizingmicrotubule ends. Expand
The dynamic behavior of the APC-binding protein EB1 on the distal ends of microtubules
TLDR
Findings showed that the APC-EB1 interaction is regulated within cells and is allowed near the ends of microtubules only under restricted conditions. Expand
Evidence that an interaction between EB1 and p150(Glued) is required for the formation and maintenance of a radial microtubule array anchored at the centrosome.
TLDR
It is proposed that a functional interaction between EB1 and p150(Glued) is required for microtubule minus end anchoring at centrosomes during the assembly and maintenance of a radial microtubules array. Expand
The microtubule plus-end proteins EB1 and dynactin have differential effects on microtubule polymerization.
TLDR
The interaction between EB1 and dynactin is clarified and it is shown that EB1 binds directly to the N-terminus of the p150(Glued) subunit, one function of a plus-end complex may be to regulate microtubule dynamics. Expand
The adenomatous polyposis coli-binding protein EB1 is associated with cytoplasmic and spindle microtubules.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that EB1 is a novel component of the microtubule cytoskeleton in mammalian cells, and may play a physiologic role connecting APC to cellular division, coordinating the control of normal growth and differentiation processes in the colonic epithelium. Expand
Yeast Bim1p Promotes the G1-specific Dynamics of Microtubules
TLDR
It is reported that a yeast protein of the highly conserved EB1 family, Bim1p, promotes cytoplasmic microtubule dynamics specifically during G1, where microtubules in cells lacking BIM1 showed reduced dynamicity due to a slower shrinking rate, fewer rescues and catastrophes, and more time spent in an attenuated/paused state. Expand
ACF7 An essential integrator of microtubule dynamics
TLDR
It is shown that ACF7 is an essential integrator of MT-actin dynamics, and spectraplakins are important for controlling microtubule dynamics and reinforcing links between microtubules and polarized F- actin, so that cellular polarization and coordinated cell movements can be sustained. Expand
Drosophila EB1 is important for proper assembly, dynamics, and positioning of the mitotic spindle
TLDR
These results reveal crucial roles for EB1 in mitosis, which is postulate involves its ability to promote the growth and interactions of microtubules within the central spindle and at the cell cortex. Expand
mDia mediates Rho-regulated formation and orientation of stable microtubules
TLDR
The results show that mDia is sufficient to generate and orient stable microtubules, and indicate that Dia-related formins are part of a conserved pathway that regulates the dynamics of microtubule ends. Expand
