    Background: We previously reported that the USP17 deubiquitinating enzyme having hyaluronan binding motifs (HABMs) interacts with human SDS3 (suppressor of defective silencing 3) and specifically deubiquitinates Lys-63 branched polyubiquitination of SDS3 resulting in negative regulation of...

    The modification of proteins by ubiquitination and deubiquitination plays an important role in various cellular processes. BRCA1-associated protein-1 (BAP1) is a deubiquitinating enzyme whose function in the control of the cell cycle requires both its deubiquitinating activity and nuclear...

    Ubiquitination is important for a broad array of cellular functions. Although reversal of this process, de-ubiquitination, most probably represents an important regulatory step contributing to cellular homeostasis, the specificity and properties of de-ubiquitination enzymes remain poorly...

  • The deubiquitinating enzyme USP2a regulates the p53 pathway by targeting Mdm2. Stevenson, Lauren F; Sparks, Alison; Allende-Vega, Nerea; Xirodimas, Dimitris P; Lane, David P; Saville, Mark K // EMBO Journal;2/14/2007, Vol. 26 Issue 4, p976 

    Mdm2 is an E3 ubiquitin ligase that promotes its own ubiquitination and also ubiquitination of the p53 tumour suppressor. In a bacterial two-hybrid screen, using Mdm2 as bait, we identified an Mdm2-interacting peptide that bears sequence similarity to the deubiquitinating enzyme USP2a. We have...

    Enzymatic deubiquitination of mono-ubiquitinated nucleosomal histone H2A (uH2A) and H2B (uH2B) is closely associated with mitotic chromatin condensation, although the function of this histone modification in cell division remains ambiguous. Here we show that rapid and extensive deubiquitination...

    FOXO (Forkhead box O) transcription factors are important regulators of cellular metabolism, cell-cycle progression and cell death. FOXO activity is regulated by multiple post-translational modifications, including phosphorylation, acetylation and polyubiquitination. Here, we show that FOXO...
