The yeast ubiquitin ligase Npi1/Rsp5 and its mammalian homologue Nedd4 are involved in ubiquitination of various cell surface proteins, these being subsequently internalized by endocytosis and degraded in the vacuole/lysosome. Both enzymes consist of an N-terminal C2 domain, three to four successive WW(P) domains, and a C-terminal catalytic domain (HECT) containing a highly conserved cysteine residue involved in ubiquitin thioester formation. In this study, we show that the conserved cysteine… CONTINUE READING
