CIN85 is a multidomain adaptor protein involved in Cbl-mediated down-regulation of epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptors. CIN85 src homology 3 domains specifically bind to a proline-arginine (PxxxPR) motif in Cbl, and this association seems to be important for EGF receptor endocytosis. Here, we report identification of novel CIN85 effectors, all(More)
Spatial and temporal separation of signal transduction pathways often determines the specificity in cellular responses. Recent advances have improved our understanding of how growth factor signalling is influenced by the formation of molecular complexes (signalosomes) in distinct cellular compartments. There has also been new insight into the mechanisms(More)
Proteins containing ubiquitin-binding domains (UBDs) interact with ubiquitinated targets and regulate diverse biological processes, including endocytosis, signal transduction, transcription and DNA repair. Many of the UBD-containing proteins are also themselves monoubiquitinated, but the functional role and the mechanisms that underlie this modification are(More)
The controlled termination of signaling pathways after their ligand-induced activation is an important mechanism to ensure appropriate signal intensity and the consequent cellular response. Most cell surface receptors are downregulated by receptor endocytosis and subsequent lysosomal degradation, processes accompanied by attachment of ubiquitin (Ub)(More)
Ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like proteins (Ubls) are signalling messengers that control many cellular functions, such as cell proliferation, apoptosis, the cell cycle and DNA repair. It is becoming apparent that the deregulation of ubiquitin pathways results in the development of human diseases, including many types of tumours. Here we summarize the common(More)
Ubiquitin (Ub)-binding domains (UBDs) are key elements in conveying Ub-based cellular signals. UBD-containing proteins interact with ubiquitinated targets and control numerous biological processes. They themselves undergo UBD-dependent monoubiquitination, which promotes intramolecular binding of the UBD to the attached Ub and leads to their inactivation.(More)
The assembly of the Cbl-SETA/CIN85-endophilin complex at the C terminus of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) following ligand activation mediates its internalization and ubiquitination. We found that the SETA/CIN85-interacting protein Alix/AIP1, which also binds endophilins, modulates this complex. Alix was found to associate indirectly with EGFR,(More)
Over the last decade, epidermal growth factor (EGF) signaling has been used repeatedly as a test-bed for pioneering computational systems biology. Recent breakthroughs in our molecular understanding of EGF signaling pose new challenges for mathematical modeling strategies. Three key areas emerge as particularly relevant: the pervasive importance of(More)
