Inhibition of ubiquitin ligases with small molecule remains a very challenging task, given the lack of catalytic activity of the target and the requirement of disruption of its interactions with other proteins. Siah1/2, which are E3 ubiquitin ligases, are implicated in melanoma and prostate cancer and represent high-value drug targets. We utilized three independent screening approaches in our efforts to identify small-molecule Siah1/2 inhibitors: Affinity Selection-Mass Spectrometry, a protein thermal shift-based assay and an in silico based screen...

During RNA-directed DNA methylation (RdDM), the DDR complex, composed of DRD1, DMS3, and RDM1, is responsible for recruiting DNA polymerase V (Pol V) to silence transposable elements (TEs) in plants. However, how the DDR complex is regulated remains unexplored. Here, we show that the anaphase-promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C) regulates the assembly of the DDR complex by targeting DMS3 for degradation. We found that a substantial set of RdDM loci was commonly de-repressed in apc/c and pol v mutants, and that the defects in RdDM activity resulted from up-regulated DMS3 protein levels, which finally caused reduced Pol V recruitment...

Ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase L1 (UCHL1) is a unique brain-specific deubiquitinating enzyme. Mutations in and aberrant function of UCHL1 have been linked to many neurological disorders. UCHL1 activity protects neurons from hypoxic injury, and binding of stroke-induced reactive lipid species to the cysteine 152 (C152) of UCHL1 unfolds the protein and disrupts its function. To investigate the role of UCHL1 and its adduction by reactive lipids in inhibiting repair and recovery of function following ischemic injury, a knock-in (KI) mouse expressing the UCHL1 C152A mutation was generated...

The mechanisms that regulate envelopment of HCV and other viruses that bud intracellularly and/or lack late-domain motifs are largely unknown. We reported that K63 polyubiquitination of the HCV nonstructural (NS) 2 protein mediates HRS (ESCRT-0 component) binding and envelopment. Nevertheless, the ubiquitin signaling that governs NS2 ubiquitination remained unknown. Here, we map the NS2 interactome with the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS) via mammalian cell-based screens. NS2 interacts with E3 ligases, deubiquitinases, and ligase regulators, some of which are candidate proviral or antiviral factors...

Opioids are widely used for relieving clinical acute or chronic pain. The biological effects of opioids are through activating the μ-opioid receptors 1 (MOR1). Most studies have focused on the consequences of agonist-induced MOR1 phosphorylation, ubiquitination, and internalization. Agonist-mediated MOR1 degradation, which is crucial for receptor stability and responsiveness, has not been well studied. The HECT ubiquitin E3 ligase Smurf2 has been shown to regulate MOR1 ubiquitination and internalization, however, its role in MOR1 degradation has not been studied...

TLRs have been proven to be essential mediators for the early innate immune response. Overactivation of TLR-mediated immune signaling promotes deterioration of cardiovascular diseases; however, the role of TLRs in the heart under physiologic conditions remains neglected. Here, we show that Tlr3 deficiency induced the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) retention of Kv4.2/4.3 proteins and consequent degradation via the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway. Knockout of Tlr3 resulted in a prolonged QT interval (the space between the start of the Q wave and the end of the T wave) in mice with no significant signs of inflammation and tissue abnormality in cardiac muscles...

Porphyromonas gingivalis , the keystone pathogen in chronic periodontitis, was identified in the brain of Alzheimer's disease patients. Toxic proteases from the bacterium called gingipains were also identified in the brain of Alzheimer's patients, and levels correlated with tau and ubiquitin pathology. Oral P. gingivalis infection in mice resulted in brain colonization and increased production of Aβ1-42 , a component of amyloid plaques. Further, gingipains were neurotoxic in vivo and in vitro, exerting detrimental effects on tau, a protein needed for normal neuronal function...

Neuronal depolarization induces the synaptic release of tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA). Cyclin dependent kinase-5 (Cdk5) is a member of the family of cyclin-dependent kinases that regulates cell migration and synaptic function in postmitotic neurons. Cdk5 is activated by its binding to p35, a membrane-anchored protein that is rapidly degraded by the proteasome. Here we show that tPA prevents the degradation of p35 in the synapse by a plasminogen-dependent mechanism that requires open synaptic N-Methyl-D-Aspartate (NMDA) receptors...

Background: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is associated with progressive impairments in brain responsiveness to insulin and insulin-like growth factor (IGF). Although deficiencies in brain insulin and IGF could be ameliorated with trophic factors such as insulin, impairments in receptor expression, binding, and tyrosine kinase activation require alternative strategies. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) agonists target genes downstream of insulin/IGF stimulation. Furthermore, their anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects address other pathologies contributing to neurodegeneration...

The Drosophila protocadherins Dachsous and Fat regulate growth and tissue polarity by modulating the levels, membrane localization and polarity of the atypical myosin Dachs. Localization to the apical junctional membrane is critical for Dachs function, and the adapter protein Vamana/Dlish and palmitoyl transferase Approximated are required for Dachs membrane localization. However, how Dachs levels are regulated is poorly understood. Here we identify the early girl gene as playing an essential role in Fat signaling by limiting the levels of Dachs protein...

Fine particulate matter is a well-known air pollutant threatening public health. Studies have confirmed long-term exposure to the particles could decrease the pulmonary function, induce asthma exacerbation, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as increase the incidence and mortality of lung cancer. A clinical study has explored that the prevalence and risks of vitamin D (VD) deficiency in various chronic disease and toxins induced tissue damage. Our current study aimed to explore the mechanism and further therapeutic potential of VD administration to ameliorate fine particles exposure induced pulmonary damage in vivo and in vitro...

Association mapping of factors that condition pyrethroid resistance in Aedes aegypti has consistently identified genes in multiple functional groups. Toward better understanding of the mechanisms involved, we examined high throughput sequencing data (HTS) from two Aedes aegypti aegypti collections from Merida, Yucatan, Mexico treated with either permethrin or deltamethrin. Exome capture enrichment for coding regions and the AaegL5 annotation were used to identify genes statistically associated with resistance...

TAR DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43) is a ubiquitously expressed nuclear protein that influences diverse cellular processes by regulating alternative splicing of RNA and microRNA biogenesis. It is also a pathological protein found in sporadic ALS and in the most common subtype of frontotemporal lobar degeneration with ubiquitinated inclusions (FLTD-U). TDP-43 has two tandem RNA-binding domains, RRM1 and RRM2. The NMR structure of TDP-43 was solved in the presence of UG-rich RNA sequences bound to the RRM1 and RRM2 domains...

Spatiotemporal control of Wnt signaling is essential for the development and homeostasis of many tissues. The transmembrane E3 ubiquitin ligases ZNRF3 (zinc and ring finger 3) and RNF43 (ring finger protein 43) antagonize Wnt signaling by promoting degradation of frizzled receptors. ZNRF3 and RNF43 are frequently inactivated in human cancer, but the molecular and therapeutic implications remain unclear. Here, we demonstrate that adrenocortical-specific loss of ZNRF3, but not RNF43, results in adrenal hyperplasia that depends on Porcupine-mediated Wnt ligand secretion...

The multisubunit CCR4-NOT mRNA deadenylase complex plays important roles in the posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression. The NOT4 E3 ubiquitin ligase is a stable component of the CCR4-NOT complex in yeast but does not copurify with the human or Drosophila melanogaster complex. Here we show that the C-terminal regions of human and D. melanogaster NOT4 contain a conserved sequence motif that directly binds the CAF40 subunit of the CCR4-NOT complex (CAF40-binding motif [CBM]). In addition, nonconserved sequences flanking the CBM also contact other subunits of the complex...

Angelman syndrome (AS) is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder caused by the loss of function from the maternal allele of UBE3A , a gene encoding an E3 ubiquitin ligase. UBE3A is only expressed from the maternally inherited allele in mature human neurons due to tissue-specific genomic imprinting. Imprinted expression of UBE3A is restricted to neurons by expression of UBE3A antisense transcript ( UBE3A-ATS ) from the paternally inherited allele, which silences the paternal allele of UBE3A in cis However, the mechanism restricting UBE3A-ATS expression and UBE3A imprinting to neurons is not understood...

Self-incompatibility (SI) is a genetic mechanism in hermaphroditic flowers that prevents inbreeding by rejection of self-pollen, while allowing cross- or genetically diverse pollen to germinate on the stigma to successfully fertilize the ovules. In Brassica, SI is initiated by the allele-specific recognition of pollen-encoded, secreted ligand (SCR/SP11) by the stigmatic receptor kinase S-locus receptor kinase (SRK), resulting in activation of SRK through phosphorylation [1-3]. Once activated, this phospho-relay converges on intracellular compatibility factors, which are immediately targeted for degradation by the E3 ligase, ARC1, resulting in the pollen rejection response [4, 5]...
