3 Outline History and Evolution of Ub-pathway
Sites where ubiquitination regulates protein trafficking/function Regulation of sodium channel stability at the cell surface (ENaC) Other ubiquitin-like molecules

4 Cellular Protein Degradation
Lysosomal Nonspecific Endocytosis Foreign proteins Energy favorable to degrade proteins Non-lysosomal Specificity, requires ATP Conditions of stress Ubiquitin-proteosomal pathway 26S proteosome Role in cellular processes/signaling

5 Non-lysosomal Protein Degradation
1977 – Etlinger and Goldberg (PNAS) Protein degradation in reticulocytes But no lysosomes ATP dependent 1980 – Wilkinson et al (JBC) Identify protein degradation system in reticulocyte Two fractions – (ATP-dependent Proteolytic Factor; APF) APF-1 fraction conjugates to proteins APF-1 identified as ubiquitin Protein Adduct  Protein Degradation Ubiquitin Found Function Found

~1000 aa, Cysteine-636 Ub attachment site E2: Transfer Ub Conj Conserved cysteine Active “thio ester” E3: Ligase Specific w/E2 Usually do not conjugate Hold complex together

10 19S and 20S Proteasome Subunits Characteristics

14 Roles of Ubiquitination

15 Different Types of Ubiquitin Tags

16 Modulalar Ub-binding Domains (endocytic proteins):
Ubiquitin associated (UBA) or interacting motif (UIM) UVE (ub conjugating enzyme E2 variant CUE These domains bind to Ile44 on Ub Examples Espsin (Eps15-interacting protein) Eps15 (epidermal growth factor receptor substrate 15

17 Modulalar Ub-binding Domains
Lipid binding preference: ENTH domain: PI-4,5-P (PM) FYVE domain: PI-3-P

18 Endocytic Machinery that is monoubiquitinated
CIN85 (Cbl-interacting protein of 85 kDa) required for activated growth factor receptors Epsins Eps15 Hrs Rabex Numb (binds to Eps15 and AP-2) and neg regulates Notch (promotes Notch endocytosis)

19 Posttranslational Modification (ubiquitination) and Protein Sorting

20 ESCRT Proteins and the MVB

21 Ubiquitin and Protein Sorting
In yeast, Ub is used for endocytosis and delivery into internal vesicles of the MVB In higher eukaryotes, it is used for the same purpose for regulated transport For regulated internalization and/or lysosomal targeting, an example is the signal transducing receptors: G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) b2-adrenergic and CXCR4 (MVB only) Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs)

22 Ub Signal for Internalization and
Sorting into the MVB In yeast, Ub is used for endocytosis and delivery into internal vesicles of the MVB In higher eukaryotes, it is used for the same purpose for regulated transport For regulated internalization and/or lysosomal targeting, an example is the signal transducing receptors: G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) b2-adrenergic and CXCR4 (MVB only) Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs)

23 Transmembrane Proteins Regulated by Ub-dependent Sorting
In yeast: Ste2, Ste3, Ste6, Uracil permease, Carboxypeptidase S, etc In metazoans: Regulation of growth/differentiation: Growth hormone receptor EGFR Macrophage colony-stimulating factor PDGFR Hepatocyte growth factor receptor Transforming growth factor b receptor b2-adrenergic receptor Immune response: IL-2 receptor T cell receptor CXCR4 IgG receptor (Fcg receptor II) Pre-T cell receptor B7-2

24 Transmembrane Proteins Regulated by Ub-dependent Sorting
In metazoans: Neurotransmission: Ion channels: AMPA glutamate receptors ENaC Glycine receptors ClC-5 Cell-cell contacts: Immune molecules E-cadherin downregulated by viruses: Occludin MHC class I B7-2 Developmental patterning: ICAM-1 Delta CD4 Notch Roundabout

25 E3 Ligases Bridging factors: E2 + substrate Belong to three families
Homologous E6AP Carboxy Terminus HECT (Rsp5/Nedd4) Really Interesting New Gene RING; major family (Cbl) Homology (U-box) proteins UFD2; small family

26 Ubiquitin E3 Enzymes Substrate specificity HECT domain E3 Homologous

34 ENaC function Major ion channel that controls salt and fluid resorption in the kidney Mutations in the PPXY motif cause accumulations of channels at the cell surface and result in Liddle’s syndrome, and inherited form of hypertension

35 ENac surface Stability
Nedd 4 (HECT ligase)-negatively regulates ENaC surface stability Nedd4 WW domains bind PPXY motif of ENaC subunits Nedd4 also interacts with serum and glucocorticoid-regulated kinase (SGK) SGK contains two PPXY motifs that bind to Nedd4 WW domains SGK-dependent Nedd4 P inhibits the Nedd4-ENaC interaction therefore, Nedd4 P increases ENaC at the cell surface

36 Nedd4 and other Ubiquitin ligases important for protein transport

37 ENaC Subunits

38 Regulation of ENaC Surface Stability

39 Regulation of ENaC Surface Stability

40 Ub-like Proteins SUMO-1 (sentrin, smt-3)
1996 – covalent modification – RanGAP1 RanGAP1 nearly quantitative modified Cytosolic RanGAP1 to nuclear pore Activate shuttling factor

41 Ubiquitin-like Proteins:

42 Ubiquitin Superfold and Ubiquitons
UB αβ roll suprfold Ub – blue SUMO-1 – green NEDD8 - red

43 SUMO SUMO Shared characteristics
C-terminal -GG essential for conjugation Affix to lysine residues in target NOT directly associated with proteasomal degradation

44 Competition/Regulation
SUMO Reactive Oxygen Species: Oxidizes reactive thiols on SUMO enzymes Uba1/Aos1- S – S – Ubc9 Thus: SUMO can not attach and proteins not Sumoylated

45 Examples of SUMO function
PROTEIN SUMO Effect RanGAP IkB c-Jun p53 and mdm2 Causes nuclear translocation Blocks Ub-conjugation site, prevents degradation Inhibits transcriptional activity Blocks mdm2 self-ubiquitination, prevents degradation SUMO-p53 in DNA binding domain   apoptotic activity
