The ATP-driven chaperone valosin-containing protein (VCP)/p97 governs critical steps in ubiquitin-dependent protein quality control and intracellular signalling pathways. It cooperates with diverse partner proteins to help process ubiquitin-labelled proteins for recycling or degradation by the proteasome in many cellular contexts. Recent studies have(More)
The AAA-ATPase VCP (also known as p97) cooperates with distinct cofactors to process ubiquitylated proteins in different cellular pathways. VCP missense mutations cause a systemic degenerative disease in humans, but the molecular pathogenesis is unclear. We used an unbiased mass spectrometry approach and identified a VCP complex with the UBXD1 cofactor,(More)
Rupture of endosomes and lysosomes is a major cellular stress condition leading to cell death and degeneration. Here, we identified an essential role for the ubiquitin-directed AAA-ATPase, p97, in the clearance of damaged lysosomes by autophagy. Upon damage, p97 translocates to lysosomes and there cooperates with a distinct set of cofactors including UBXD1,(More)
The AAA-ATPase p97 (also called VCP for Valosin-containing protein) is essential for a number of cellular processes as diverse as ER-associated degradation, DNA damage response, and cell cycle control. Mechanistically, p97 cooperates with its cofactor Ufd1-Npl4 in these processes to segregate polyubiquitinated misfolded or regulatory client proteins from(More)
RATIONALE Telethonin (also known as titin-cap or t-cap) is a 19-kDa Z-disk protein with a unique β-sheet structure, hypothesized to assemble in a palindromic way with the N-terminal portion of titin and to constitute a signalosome participating in the process of cardiomechanosensing. In addition, a variety of telethonin mutations are associated with the(More)
Caveolin-1 (CAV1) is the defining constituent of caveolae at the plasma membrane of many mammalian cells. For turnover, CAV1 is ubiquitinated and sorted to late endosomes and lysosomes. Sorting of CAV1 requires the AAA+-type ATPase VCP and its cofactor UBXD1. However, it is unclear in which region CAV1 is ubiquitinated and how ubiquitination is linked to(More)
