The COP9 signalosome coerces autophagy and the ubiquitin-proteasome system to police the heart.
Guangzhou, China. In Autophagy, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: We demonstrated for the first time that the COP9 signalosome (COPS) controls the degradation of a surrogate and a bona fide misfolded protein in the cytosol of cardiomyocytes likely via supporting ubiquitination by CUL/cullin-RING ligases, and that Cops8 hypomorphism exacerbates cardiac proteinopathy in mice, in which autophagic impairment appears to be in play.
Revisiting Apoplastic Auxin Signaling Mediated by AUXIN BINDING PROTEIN 1.
Chinju, South Korea. In Mol Cells, Dec 2015
It has been suggested that AUXIN BINDING PROTEIN 1 (ABP1) functions as an apoplastic auxin receptor, and is known to be involved in the post-transcriptional process, and largely independent of the already well-known SKP-cullin-F-box-transport inhibitor response (TIR1) /auxin signaling F-box (AFB) (SCF(TIR1/AFB)) pathway.
The role of cullin proteins in gastric cancer.
Hohhot, China. In Tumour Biol, Nov 2015
There are seven cullin proteins that have been identified in eukaryotes: CUL1, CUL2, CUL3, CUL4A, CUL4B, CUL5, and CUL7/p53-associated parkin-like cytoplasmic protein.
MicroRNA regulation of F-box proteins and its role in cancer.
Memphis, United States. In Semin Cancer Biol, Nov 2015
F-box proteins function as the substrate-recognition components of the SKP1-CUL1-F-box (SCF)-ubiquitin ligase complex for the degradation of their protein targets by the ubiquitin-proteasome system.
Protein neddylation: beyond cullin-RING ligases.
Zürich, Switzerland. In Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol, 2015
NEDD8 (neural precursor cell expressed developmentally downregulated protein 8) is a ubiquitin-like protein that activates the largest ubiquitin E3 ligase family, the cullin-RING ligases.
SCF ubiquitin ligase-targeted therapies.
New York City, United States. In Nat Rev Drug Discov, 2014
F-box proteins are the substrate-targeting subunits of SKP1-CUL1-F-box protein (SCF) ubiquitin ligase complexes.
