Dataset Summary
TitleUnannotated microprotein EMBOW switches WDR5 between epigenetic and mitotic roles during cell cycle
DescriptionThe highly conserved WD40-repeat protein WDR5 is part of multiple functional complexes both inside and outside the nucleus, interacting with the MLL/SET1 histone methyltransferases that catalyze histone H3 lysine 4 (H3K4) di- and tri-methylation (me2,3), and KIF2A, a member of the Kinesin-13 family of microtubule depolymerase. It is currently unclear whether, and how, the distribution of WDR5 between complexes is regulated. Here, we show that an unannotated microprotein dually encoded in the human SCRIB gene regulates the association of WDR5 with epigenetic and KIF2A complexes. We propose to name this alt-protein EMBOW, or microprotein that is the epigenetic to mitotic binder of WDR5. Loss of EMBOW decreases WDR5 interaction with KIF2A, displaces WDR5 from the spindle pole during G2/M phase, and shortens the spindle length, hence prolonging G2/M phase and delaying cell proliferation. On the other hand, loss of EMBOW increases WDR5 interaction with epigenetic complexes, including KMT2A/MLL1, and promotes WDR5 association with chromatin and binding to the target genes, hence increasing H3K4me3 levels of target genes. Together, these results implicate EMBOW as a regulator of WDR5 that switches it between epigenetic and mitotic regulatory roles during cell cycle, explaining how mammalian cells can temporally control the multifunctionality of WDR5.
