Abstract

Synthesis and maintenance of primary cilia are regulated by the von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) tumour suppressor protein. Recent studies indicate that this regulation is linked to microtubule-dependent functions of pVHL such as orienting microtubule growth and increasing plus-end microtubule stability, however little is known how this occurs. We have identified the kinesin-2 motor complex, known to regulate cilia, as a novel and endogenous pVHL binding partner. The interaction with kinesin-2 facilitates pVHL binding to microtubules. These data suggest that microtubule-dependent functions of pVHL are influenced by kinesin-2.
