BRCC36 is a Zn(2+)-dependent deubiquitinating enzyme (DUB) that hydrolyzes lysine-63-linked ubiquitin chains as part of distinct macromolecular complexes that participate in either interferon signaling or DNA-damage recognition. The MPN(+) domain protein BRCC36 associates with pseudo DUB MPN(-) proteins KIAA0157 or Abraxas, which are essential for BRCC36(More)
The function of the Munc18-1 protein hydrophobic pocket, which interacts with the syntaxin-1 N-terminal peptide, has been highly controversial in neurosecretion. Recent analysis of patients with familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis type 5 has identified the E132A mutation in the hydrophobic pocket of Munc18-2, prompting us to examine the role of this(More)
Tribbles proteins are conserved pseudokinases that function to control kinase signalling and transcription in diverse biological processes. Abnormal function in human Tribbles has been implicated in a number of diseases including leukaemia, metabolic syndromes and cardiovascular diseases. Caenorhabditis elegans Tribbles NIPI-3 was previously shown to(More)
