Tel2 is a protein shown to be essential in yeast, nematodes, and vertebrates, that functions in diverse pathways for reacting to a variety of cellular stresses and cues including DNA damage, abnormal mRNAs, nutrient availability, mitogens, and cell cycle progression [1]. Tel2 functions as a co-chaperone with Hsp90 in PIKK complex assembly [2?]. The role of Tel2 in PIKK assembly has been proposed to explain all of its functions, but this point is highly controversial [5?]. The tel2 gene was identified originally as an essential gene in budding yeast S. cerevisiae in a screen for mutants with short telomeres [8]. Genes homologous to tel2 were found to be essential also in S. pombe, C. elegans, and mice, but the phenotypes of the mutants and subsequent biochemical studies indicated that Tel2 function is not limited to telomere dynamics [2,6,7,9?7]. In the course of a study of the KS-176 Drosophila gene encoding Golgi Epsin or Epsin-Related (EpsinR), we and others [18] discovered that one isoform of Drosophila EpsinR is a translational fusion with the only Tel2 coding sequences in Drosophila. EpsinR is multimodular protein conserved from yeast to vertebrates that promotes Clathrin-coated vesicle formation at the trans-Golgi network and endosomes and thereby modulates Golgi-endosome trafficking [19?6]. A similar protein conserved in yeast through vertebrates, endocytic Epsin, promotes Clathrin-coated vesicle formation at the plasma membrane [27,28]. Endocytic Epsin is an essential component of the Notch signaling pathway [29,30]. As endocytosis and endosomal trafficking play key roles in a variety of signaling mechanisms [31], we were curious whether like endocytic Epsin, Golgi Epsin might be crucial to a particular signaling pathway. To this end, we generated Drosophila with lossof-function mutations in the single EpsinR gene, called liquid facetsRelated (lqfR) [32]. The lqfR mutant phenotype is complex; there are defects in planar cell polarity and cell size, proliferation, and patterning [32]. Here we show that these morphological defects of lqfR mutants are due entirely to the loss of Tel2 activity. Moreover, we show that the essential Tel2 function in Drosophila is at least in part direct regulation of the Wingless signaling pathway.Results and Discussion Exon 6 of lqfRa encodes the Drosophila Tel2 homologThe lqfR gene pre-mRNA is alternatively spliced to generate mRNAs with PD168393 different C-terminal exons and thus two different proteins, LqfRa (1415 aa) and LqfRb (649 aa) (Fig. 1) [18,32]. Both LqfRa and LqfRb have structural elements characteristic of Golgi Epsin: the ENTH domain and binding motifs for AP-1 and Clathrin. The larger protein also contains a domain encoded by its LqfRa-specific C-terminal exon 6 (921 aa) that is homologous to Tel2. Tel2 is a Y-shaped protein in the HEAT repeat family of superhelical proteins, in which 32 interacting a-helices are packed to generate two a-solenoids that form the long (21 a-helices) and s.Oncentration balance of stabilizers in individual CF protein expression approaches.
