Structure of a HOIP/E2~ubiquitin complex reveals RBR E3 ligase mechanism and regulation

The first structure, to the authors' knowledge, of the fully active human HOIP RBR in its transfer complex with an E2~ubiquitin conjugate is presented, which elucidates the intricate nature of RBR E3 ligases.

Structures of the cIAP2 RING Domain Reveal Conformational Changes Associated with Ubiquitin-conjugating Enzyme (E2) Recruitment*

It is demonstrated that disruption of E2 binding, or dimerization, stabilizes IAP proteins against IAP antagonists in vivo and shows that autoubiquitylation is required for regulation of IAP abundance.

Activation of UBC5 Ubiquitin-conjugating Enzyme by the RING Finger of ROC1 and Assembly of Active Ubiquitin Ligases by All Cullins*

It is suggested that RING-E2, rather than cullin-RING, constitutes the catalytic core of the ubiquitin ligase and that one major function of the cullin subunit is to assemble the RING -E2 catalyticcore and substrates together.

Structural and functional basis for TRIM25 E3 ligase catalytic activity and NS1-mediated suppression

The crystal structure of a complex between the TRIM25 RING domain and a ubiquitin-loaded E2 identifies the structural and mechanistic features that promote activation of E2~Ub allowing a model for the regulation of activity in the full-length protein.

Identification of a ubiquitin–protein ligase subunit within the CCR4–NOT transcription repressor complex

It is demonstrated that CNOT4 functions as a ubiquitin–protein ligase (E3), and a model of how E3 ligase function within the CCR4–NOT complex relates to transcriptional regulation is presented.

The N Terminus of Cbl-c Regulates Ubiquitin Ligase Activity by Modulating Affinity for the Ubiquitin-conjugating Enzyme*

It is shown for the first time that phosphorylation of Tyr-341 or the Y341E mutation leads to a decrease in affinity for the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2), UbcH5b and that the decreased affinity of the Y 341E mutant Cbl-c for Ubch5b results in a more rapid turnover of bound Ubc H5b coincident with the increased E3 activity.

Solution Structure of the Flexible Class II Ubiquitin-conjugating Enzyme Ubc1 Provides Insights for Polyubiquitin Chain Assembly*♦

This two-domain structure of Ubc1 was used to identify other UBA-containing class II E2 proteins, including human E2-25K, that likely have a similar architecture and to determine the role of the UBA domain in facilitating polyubiquitin chain formation.

Protein-protein interactions regulate Ubl conjugation.

Topors Functions as an E3 Ubiquitin Ligase with Specific E2 Enzymes and Ubiquitinates p53*

It is shown that overexpression of topors results in a proteasome-dependent decrease in p53 protein expression in a human osteosarcoma cell line and suggests that topors functions as a ubiquitin ligase for multiple transcription factors.



Structure of an E6AP-UbcH7 complex: insights into ubiquitination by the E2-E3 enzyme cascade.

The crystal structure of the E6AP hect domain bound to the UbcH7 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2) reveals the determinants of E2-E3 specificity and provides insights into the transfer of ubiquitIn from the E2 to the E3.

Characterization of Human hect Domain Family Members and Their Interaction with UbcH5 and UbcH7*

It is shown that the hect domain of E6-AP is necessary and sufficient for ubiquitin thioester adduct formation, and in further support of the hypothesis that hect domain proteins represent a family of E3s, several of these are shown to formThioester complexes with UbcH7.

Structure of the amino-terminal domain of Cbl complexed to its binding site on ZAP-70 kinase

The crystal structure of Cbl-N is described, both alone and in complex with a phosphopeptide that represents its binding site in ZAP-70, and it is confirmed that the three domains together form an integrated phosphoprotein-recognition module.

Mdm2 Is a RING Finger-dependent Ubiquitin Protein Ligase for Itself and p53*

Mdm2 is a ubiquitin protein ligase (E3) for p53 and that its activity is dependent on its RING finger, and it is shown that Mdm2 mediates its own ubiquitination in a Ringing finger-dependent manner, which requires no eukaryotic proteins other than ubiquitIn-activating enzyme (E1) and an ubiquit in-conjugating enzyme(E2).

Protein ubiquitination involving an E1–E2–E3 enzyme ubiquitin thioester cascade

The cysteine residue of E6-AP responsible for Ubiquitin thioester formation was mapped to a region that is highly conserved among several proteins of unknown function, suggesting that these proteins share the ability to form thioesters with ubiquitin.

Three-dimensional structure of a ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2).

The x-ray crystal structure of a recombinant ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2) encoded by the UBC1 gene of the plant Arabidopsis thaliana has been determined with the use of multiple isomorphous

Ligand-induced Ubiquitination of the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Involves the Interaction of the c-Cbl RING Finger and UbcH7*

C-Cbl plays an essential role in the ligand-induced ubiquitination of the EGFR by a mechanism that involves an interaction of the RING finger domain with UbcH7, a ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (E2).

The Rbx1 subunit of SCF and VHL E3 ubiquitin ligase activates Rub1 modification of cullins Cdc53 and Cul2.

These findings identify Rbx1 as a common component of enzyme systems responsible for ubiquitin and Rub1 modification of target proteins.

The RING Finger Domain of Cbl Is Essential for Negative Regulation of the Syk Tyrosine Kinase*

The RING finger domain is established as an essential element in Cbl-mediated negative regulation of a tyrosine kinase and revealed that the evolutionarily conserved N-terminal half of the protein is sufficient for this function.
