Viral interferon regulatory factor 1 (vIRF1), a Kaposi sarcoma herpesvirus protein, destabilizes p53 by inhibiting p53 acetylation and Hdm2 phosphorylation. This leads to increased ubiquitination and degradation of p53 by Hdm2, which cripples the cellular p53-mediated antiviral response. Ubiquitin-specific protease 7 (USP7) deubiquitinates p53 and Hdm2 and(More)
UbE2E1/UbcH6 is an E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme that is regulated by USP7. We identified UbE2E1 as a novel component of Polycomb repressive complex 1 (PRC1), the E3 ligase complex responsible for histone H2A ubiquitination and gene silencing. We demonstrate that UbE2E1 is critical for the monoubiquitination of H2A at residue Lys-119 (uH2AK119) through(More)
The examination of four species of luminous bacteria Photobacterium leiognathi, Photobacterium phosphoreum, Vibrio fischeri and Vibrio harveyi has enabled us to reveal some nutrient medium components effecting growth, luminescence intensity and luciferase synthesis. These agents are nucleic components (nucleotides, nucleotides and amine bases), amino acids(More)
Mdm2 and MdmX are important negative regulators of the tumor suppressor p53. Structurally homologous Mdm2 and MdmX inhibit p53 by directly blocking p53 transcriptional activation. Mdm2 also modifies and targets p53 for 26S proteasome dependent protein degradation through E3 ligase activity mediated by its C-terminal RING domain. However, MdmX lacks(More)
