AbstractLIM domain proteins are found to be important regulators in cell growth, cell fate determination, cell differentiation and remodeling of the cell cytoskeleton. Human Four-and-a-half LIM-only protein 3 (FHL3) is a type of LIM-only protein that contains four tandemly repeated LIM motifs with an N-terminal single zinc finger (half LIM motif). FHL3 expresses predominantly in human skeletal muscle. In this report, FHL3 was shown to be a novel interacting partner of FHL2 using the yeast two-hybrid assay. Furthermore, site-directed mutagenesis of FHL3 indicated that the LIM2 of FHL3 is the essential LIM domain for interaction with FHL2. Green fluorescent protein (GFP) was used to tag FHL3 in order to study its distribution during myogenesis. Our result shows that FHL3 was localized in the focal adhesions and nucleus of the cells. FHL3 mainly stayed in the focal adhesion during myogenesis. Moreover, using site-directed mutagenesis, the LIM1 of FHL3 was identified as an essential LIM domain for its subcellular localization. Mutants of GFP have given rise to a novel technique, two-fusion fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), in the determination of protein-protein interaction at particular subcellular locations of eukaryotic cells. To determine whether FHL2 and FHL3 can interact with one another and to locate the site of this interaction in a single intact mammalian cell, we fused FHL2 and FHL3 to different mutants of GFP and studied their interactions using FRET. BFP/GFP fusion constructs were cotransfected into muscle myoblast C2C12 to verify the colocalization and subcellular localization of FRET. We found that FHL2 and FHL3 were colocalized in the mitochondria of the C2C12 cells and FRET was observed by using an epi-fluorescent microscope equipped with an FRET specific filter set. © 2001 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
