Ubiquilin 1

Dsk2, ubiquilin, ubiquilin 1, UBQLN1
This gene encodes an ubiquitin-like protein (ubiquilin) that shares a high degree of similarity with related products in yeast, rat and frog. Ubiquilins contain an N-terminal ubiquitin-like domain and a C-terminal ubiquitin-associated domain. They physically associate with both proteasomes and ubiquitin ligases, and thus are thought to functionally link the ubiquitination machinery to the proteasome to affect in vivo protein degradation. This ubiquilin has also been shown to modulate accumulation of presenilin proteins, and it is found in lesions associated with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on Dsk2
Ubiquilin Mediated Small Molecule Inhibition of Mammalian Target of Rapamycin Complex 1 (mTORC1) Signaling.
Hedstrom et al., United States. In J Biol Chem, Feb 2016
Cbz-B3A does not appear to bind directly to mTORC1, but instead binds to ubiquilins 1, 2, and 4. Knockdown of ubiquilin 2, but not ubiquilins 1 and 4, decreases the phosphorylation of 4EBP1, suggesting that ubiquilin 2 activates mTORC1.

Rpn10 monoubiquitination orchestrates the association of the ubiquilin-type DSK2 receptor with the proteasome.

Despite the progress made in understanding the roles of proteasome polyubiquitin receptors, such as the subunits Rpn10 (regulatory particle non-ATPase 10) and Rpn13, and the transient interactors Rad23 (radiation sensitivity abnormal 23) and Dsk2 (dual-specificity protein kinase 2), the mechanisms involved in their regulation are virtually unknown.

The ubiquitin ligase HERC3 attenuates NF-κB-dependent transcription independently of its enzymatic activity by delivering the RelA subunit for degradation.
Anrather et al., New York City, United States. In Nucleic Acids Res, Dec 2015
Rather, we show that HERC3 and RelA are part of a multi-protein complex containing the proteasome as well as the ubiquitin-like protein ubiquilin-1 (UBQLN1).

Endoplasmic reticulum stress and proteasomal system in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
Ozer et al., İstanbul, Turkey. In Free Radic Biol Med, Nov 2015
Mutation of many different genes are involved in the pathogenesis such as superoxide dismutase 1, chromosome 9 open reading frame 72 and ubiquilin 2. These genes are mainly related to the antioxidant defense systems, endoplasmic reticulum stress related proteins and also protein aggregation, degradation pathways and therefore mutation of these genes cause related disorders.This review focused on the role of protein processing via endoplasmic reticulum and proteasomal system in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which are the main players in the pathology.
Autophagy receptor defects and ALS-FTLD.
