Structure of a conserved dimerization domain within the F-box protein Fbxo7 and the PI31 proteasome inhibitor.


F-box proteins are the substrate-recognition components of the Skp1-Cul1-F box protein (SCF) E3 ubiquitin ligases. Here we report a structural relationship between Fbxo7, a component of the SCF(Fbxo7) E3 ligase, and the proteasome inhibitor PI31. SCF(Fbxo7) is known to catalyze the ubiquitination of hepatoma-up-regulated protein (HURP) and the inhibitor of… (More)
