Abstract / Description:NDEL1 is a binding partner of LIS1 that participates in the regulation of cytoplasmic dynein function and
microtubule organization during mitotic cell division and neuronal migration. NDEL1 preferentially localizes
to the centrosome and is a likely target for cell cycle-activated kinases, including CDK1. In particular, NDEL1
phosphorylation by CDK1 facilitates katanin p60 recruitment to the centrosome and triggers microtubule
remodeling. Here, we show that Aurora-A phosphorylates NDEL1 at Ser251 at the beginning of mitotic entry.
Interestingly, NDEL1 phosphorylated by Aurora-A was rapidly downregulated thereafter by ubiquitinationmediated
protein degradation. In addition, NDEL1 is required for centrosome targeting of TACC3 through the
interaction with TACC3. The expression of Aurora-A phosphorylation-mimetic mutants of NDEL1 efficiently
rescued the defects of centrosomal maturation and separation which are characteristic of Aurora-A-depleted
cells. Our findings suggest that Aurora-A-mediated phosphorylation of NDEL1 is essential for centrosomal
separation and centrosomal maturation and for mitotic entry.
