Phosphorylation and Proteasome-Dependent Degradation of Bcl-2 in Mitotic-Arrested Cells after Microtubule Damage

Abstract

Treatment of NIH-OVCAR-3 cells with paclitaxel, a microtubule-stabilizing agent, induces mitotic arrest and apoptosis, but also Bcl-2 phosphorylation. We report here that Bcl-2 phosphorylation precedes Bcl-2 down-regulation and that both events are closely associated with mitotic arrest, but are not sufficient for paclitaxel to trigger apoptosis. Indeed, when paclitaxel-treated cells were induced to exit mitosis in the presence of 2-aminopurine, Bcl-2 phosphorylation and Bcl-2 down-regulation were both inhibited. In contrast, when apoptosis was inhibited by a caspase inhibitor or Bcl-2 over-expression, Bcl-2 phosphorylation and down-regulation still occurred. Furthermore, we show that Bcl-2 is degraded in mitosis by the proteasome-dependent pathway since Bcl-2 down-regulation is inhibited by proteasome inhibitors such as MG132, Lactacystin and LLnL. Taken together these results indicate that mitotic spindle damage results in post-translational modifications of Bcl-2 by phosphorylation and degradation.
