Abstract

Processing of interleukin RNAs must be tightly controlled during the immune response. Here we report that a subnuclear body called the interleukin-6 and -10 splicing activating compartment (InSAC) is a nuclear site of cytokine RNA production and stability. Tat-activating regulatory DNA-binding protein-43 (TDP-43) acts as an InSAC scaffold that selectively associates with IL-6 and IL-10 RNAs in a sequence-specific manner. TDP-43 also recruits key spliceosomal components from Cajal bodies. LPS induces posttranslational modifications of TDP-43; in particular, TDP-43 ubiquitination provides a driving force for InSAC formation. As a consequence, in vivo depletion of TDP-43 leads to a dramatic reduction in the RNA processing and the protein levels of IL-6 in serum. Collectively, our findings highlight the importance of TDP-43-mediated InSAC biogenesis in immune regulation.
