Abstract RBM8A (Y14) is carrying RNA-binding motif and forms the tight heterodimer with MAGOH. The heterodimer is known to be a member of exon junction complex on exporting mRNA and is required for mRNA metabolisms such as splicing, mRNA export and nonsense-mediated mRNA decay. Almost all RBM8A-MAGOH complexes localize in nucleoplasm and shuttle between nuclei and cytoplasm for RNA metabolism. Recently, the abnormality of G2/M transition and aberrant centrosome regulation in RBM8A- or MAGOH-deficient cells has been reported. These results prompt us to the reevaluation of the localization of RBM8A-MAGOH in human cells. Interestingly, our immunostaining experiments showed the localization of these proteins in centrosome in addition to nuclei. Furthermore, the transiently expressed eYFP-tagged RBM8A and Flag-tagged MAGOH also co-localized with centrosome signals. In addition, the proximity ligation in situ assay was performed to detect the complex formation in centrosome. Our experiments clearly showed that Myc-tagged RBM8A and Flag-tagged MAGOH formed a complex in centrosome. GFP-tagged PLK1 also co-localized with Myc-RBM8A. Our results show that RBM8A-MAGOH complex is required for M-phase progression via direct localization to centrosome rather than indirect effect.
