TATA-binding protein (TBP) is a central component for transcriptional regulation and is a target for various transcription regulators. Using histidine-tagged TBP as a ligand for affinity-purification of proteins bound to TBP, we purified a 120-kD protein, termed TBP-interacting protein 120 (TIP120), from rat liver nuclear extracts. The entire cDNA sequence(More)
Mdm2, a ubiquitin ligase that acts on p53, is regulated by sumoylation. In the current study, we identify the enzymes responsible for the sumoylation of Mdm2. When mammalian cells are co-transfected with cDNAs encoding Mdm2 and PIAS1 or PIASxbeta (protein inhibitor of activated STAT) as sumoylation enzymes, Mdm2 is highly sumoylated. Mdm2 is also sumoylated(More)
Drosophila Numb protein functions as an antagonist against Notch signal. The expression of this protein is asymmetrical in divided cells and thought to be involved in the neural cell differentiation and/or cell fate. Human homologue of Numb (hNumb) was cloned as Mdm2-binding protein by yeast two-hybrid screening. Since Mdm2 is an oncoprotein and has(More)
BACKGROUND SUG1 belongs to proteasomal ATPase. Previous studies have demonstrated that SUG1 is associated with TBP. It is assumed to be involved in transcriptional regulation in addition to proteolysis. In this study, we investigated the association of mammalian SUG1 with TBP in more detail. RESULTS Pull-down experiments with TBP revealed multiple(More)
RPB6 is one of the common subunits of all eukaryotic RNA polymerases and is indispensable for the enzyme function. Here, we isolated a rat cDNA encoding RPB6. It contained 127 amino acid (a.a.) residues. From alignment of RPB6 homologues of various eukaryotes, we defined two conserved regions, i.e. an N-terminal acidic region and a C-terminal core. In this(More)
BLNK is a pivotal adaptor protein in the signal transduction pathway from the IgM class B-cell receptor. BLNK is phosphorylated by Syk and binds various signaling intermediates, leading to cellular events including MAP-kinase activation, culminating in cellular activation. It remains unclear how BLNK is initially recruited to the surface IgM (sIgM) complex(More)
We have isolated rat cDNAs for all of the five known proteasomal ATPases. The protein sequences of rat TBP1, TBP7, MSS1, S4, and SUG1 predicted from the open reading frames consist of 439, 418, 433, 440, and 406 amino acid residues, respectively, and exhibit striking similarities to each human counterpart with only several amino acid substitutions. These(More)
TATA-binding protein (TBP) forms complexes with various nuclear proteins and plays roles in all eukaryotic transcription. We previously identified TBP-interacting protein 120 (TIP120) from rat liver. TIP120 stimulates in vitro transcription generally. Homologs of TIP120 exist in various higher eukaryotes including D. melanogaster, C. elegans, and A.(More)
We previously identified a novel TATA-binding protein (TBP)-interacting protein (TIP120) from the rat liver. Here, in an RNA polymerase II (RNAP II)-reconstituted transcription system, we demonstrate that recombinant TIP120 activates the basal level of transcription from various kinds of promoters regardless of the template DNA topology and the presence of(More)
GGAs (Golgi-localizing, gamma-adaptin ear domain homology, ADP-ribosylation factor (ARF)-binding proteins), constitute a family of monomeric adaptor proteins and are associated with protein trafficking from the trans-Golgi network to endosomes. Here, we show that GGA3 is monoubiquitylated by a RING-H2 type-ubiquitin ligase hVPS18 (human homologue of(More)
