Class IA phosphatidylinositol 3-kinases (PI3Ks) are composed of p110 catalytic and p85 regulatory subunits. How regulatory subunits modulate PI3K activity remains only partially understood. Here we identified SUMO (small ubiquitin-related modifier) as a new player modulating this regulation. We demonstrate that both p85β and p85α are conjugated to SUMO1 and(More)
The pocket proteins retinoblastoma protein (pRb), p107 and p130 are the key targets of oncoproteins expressed by DNA tumor viruses. Some of these viral proteins contain an LXCXE motif that mediates the interaction with the three pocket proteins and the inhibition of the pRb SUMOylation. Kaposi’s sarcoma herpesvirus (KSHV) contains at least two proteins that(More)
Serine threonine kinase AKT has a central role in the cell, controlling survival, proliferation, metabolism and angiogenesis. Deregulation of its activity underlies a wide range of pathological situations, including cancer. Here we show that AKT is post-translationally modified by the small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) protein. Interestingly, neither SUMO(More)
