F-box and WD-40 domain protein 2

MD6, FBXW2, FBW2, Fwd2, F-box and WD repeat domain containing 2
F-box proteins are an expanding family of eukaryotic proteins characterized by an approximately 40 amino acid motif, the F box. Some F-box proteins have been shown to be critical for the ubiquitin-mediated degradation of cellular regulatory proteins. In fact, F-box proteins are one of the four subunits of ubiquitin protein ligases, called SCFs. SCF ligases bring ubiquitin conjugating enzymes to substrates that are specifically recruited by the different F-box proteins. Mammalian F-box proteins are classified into three groups based on the presence of either WD-40 repeats, leucine-rich repeats, or the presence or absence of other protein-protein interacting domains. This gene encodes the second identified member of the F-box gene family and contains multiple WD-40 repeats. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on MD6
Reorganization of visual processing in age-related macular degeneration depends on foveal loss.
Kanwisher et al., Cambridge, United States. In Optom Vis Sci, 2014
Here, we conduct a stronger test of the dependence of reorganization of visual processing in MD on complete loss of foveal function, by bringing back one (called MD6) of the two participants who previously did not show reorganization and who showed foveal sparing.
A high-throughput open-array qPCR gene panel to identify housekeeping genes suitable for myometrium and leiomyoma expression analysis.

We identified 10 housekeeping genes, ARF1, MRPL19, FBXW2, PUM1, UBE2D2, EIF2B1, HPRT1, GUSB, ALAS1, and TRIM27, as the best set of normalization genes for comparing relative expression between leiomyoma and myometrium samples in proliferative and secretory phases.
Identification and validation of quantitative PCR reference genes suitable for normalizing expression in normal and dystrophic cell culture models of myogenesis.
Wells et al., London, United Kingdom. In Plos Curr, 2013
We measured expression of 11 candidate normalization genes (Cdc40, Htatsf1, Ap3d1, Csnk2a2, Fbxw2, Fbxo38, Pak1ip1, Zfp91, GAPDH, ActB, 18S) in three cell culture models of myogenesis (C2C12 , H2K2B4, and the dystrophic line H2KSF1).
RACK1 (receptor for activated C-kinase 1) interacts with FBW2 (F-box and WD-repeat domain-containing 2) to up-regulate GCM1 (glial cell missing 1) stability and placental cell migration and invasion.
Chen et al., Taipei, Taiwan. In Biochem J, 2013
The F-box protein, FBW2 (F-box and WD-repeat domain-containing 2), which contains five WD (tryptophan-aspartate) repeats, recognizes GCM1 and mediates its ubiquitination via the SCFFBW2 E3 ligase complex.
Antibacterial activity and QSAR of chalcones against biofilm-producing bacteria isolated from marine waters.
Doble et al., Chennai, India. In Sar Qsar Environ Res, 2010
In this study, three marine organisms, namely Bacillus flexus (LD1), Pseudomonas fluorescens (MD3) and Vibrio natriegens (MD6), were isolated from biofilms formed on polymer and metal surfaces immersed in ocean water.

UBE2D2 is required for GCMa ubiquitination and for association with the SCF(FBXW2) complex.
