Purpose: To investigate whether MGCRABGAP regulate Rap1 during mammalian spermiogenesis, and the expression pattern of Rap1 in different developmental stages.
Materials and Methods: To identify proteins that interact with MGCRABGAP, co-immunoprecipitation (co-IP) and nano liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (nano LC-MS/MS) was performed in NT2D1 lysates. By using active Rap1 pull-down and detection assay, activity of Rap1 in wild-type cells and pFLAG-MGCRABGAP transfected NT2D1 cells was compared with or without 8-pCPT-2’-O-Me-cAMP stimulation. The expression patterns and localization of Rap1 during different stages of spermatogenesis was evaluated with immunofluorescence detection on murine testicular sections.
Results: Rap1 was identified as one of MGCRABGAP interactors, the binding ability between Rap1 and MGCRABGAP was further confirmed via co-IP. Overexpression of MGCRABGAP downregulated Rap1 activity under 8-pCPT stimulation. Immunofluorescence detection demonstrated Rap1 express exclusively in elongating/elongated spermatids of stage VI~VIII.
Conclusions: We previously identified MGCRABGAP as a male germ cell-specific protein expressed in elongating and elongated spermatids. In the present study, our findings indicate that the regulatory role of MGCRABGAP in spermiogenesis assembly depend on Rap1 modulation.
