Inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor ubiquitination is mediated by mammalian Ubc7, a component of the endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation pathway, and is inhibited by chelation of intracellular Zn2+.

In the present study we have examined the enzymology of ubiquitination of endogenous InsP3Rs in muscarinic agonist-stimulated SH-SY5Y human neuroblastoma cells, focusing our attention on two mammalian E2s, MmUbc6 and MmUbc7, that have been implicated in endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) and are homologous to the yeast ERAD E2s, Ubc6p and Ubc7p.
Role of Cue1p in ubiquitination and degradation at the ER surface.

Moreover, ubiquitination by Cue1p-assembled Ubc7p and Ubc6p was a prerequisite for retrograde transport of lumenal substrates out of the ER, which suggests that ubiquitination is mechanistically integrated into the ER degradation process.
