The nucleoporin Nup358 resides on the cytoplasmic face of the interphase nuclear pore complex (NPC). During metaphase, its recruitment to kinetochores is important for correct microtubule-kinetochore attachment. Here, we report that a fraction of endogenous Nup358 interacts with interphase microtubules through its N-terminal region (BPN). Cells overexpressing the microtubule targeting domain of Nup358 displayed dramatic alteration in the microtubule organization including increased microtubule bundling and stability. Ectopic expression of BPN and full-length Nup358 exhibited significantly higher levels of acetylated microtubules that were resistant to nocodazole, a microtubule depolymerizing agent. Furthermore, RNAi mediated depletion of Nup358 affected polarized stabilization of microtubules during directed cell migration, confirming the in vivo role of Nup358 in regulating interphase microtubules.
