The lentiviral accessory proteins Vpx and Vpr are known to utilize CRL4 (DCAF1) E3 ligase to induce the degradation of the host restriction factor SAMHD1 or transcriptional factor HLTF, respectively. Selective disruption of viral CRL4 (DCAF1) E3 ligase could be a promising antiviral strategy. Recently, we have determined that post-translational modification (neddylation) of Cullin-4 is required for the activation of Vpx-CRL4 (DCAF1) E3 ligase. However, the mechanism of Vpx/Vpr-CRL4 (DCAF1) E3 ligase assembly is still poorly understood...

Nedd8 is a ubiquitin-like protein that controls vital biological events through conjugation to target proteins. We previously identified the HECT-type ubiquitin ligase Smurf1 which controls diverse cellular processes is activated by Nedd8 through covalent neddylation. However, the effect of non-covalent binding to Nedd8 remains unknown. In this study, we demonstrate that both Smurf1 and its homologue Smurf2 carry a non-covalent Nedd8-binding site within its catalytic HECT domain. Structural analysis reveals that Smurf2 has Nedd8-binding sites within the small sub-domain of N-lobe and the C-lobe of HECT domain...

The capabilities of tumour cells to survive through deregulated cell cycles and evade apoptosis are hallmarks of cancer. The ubiquitin-like proteins (UBL) proteasome system is important in regulating cell cycles via signaling proteins. Deregulation of the proteasomal system can lead to uncontrolled cell proliferation. The Skp, Cullin, F-box containing complex (SCF complex) is the predominant E3 ubiquitin ligase, and has diverse substrates. The ubiquitin ligase activity of the SCF complexes requires the conjugation of neural precursor cell expressed, developmentally down-regulated 8 (NEDD8) to cullin proteins...

NUB1 (Nedd8 ultimate buster 1) is an adaptor protein which negatively regulates the ubiquitin-like protein Nedd8 as well as neddylated proteins levels through proteasomal degradation. However, molecular mechanisms underlying this function are not completely understood. Here, we report that the oncogenic E3 ubiquitin ligase Mdm2 is a new NUB1 interacting protein which induces its ubiquitination. Interestingly, we found that Mdm2-mediated ubiquitination of NUB1 is not a proteolytic signal. Instead of promoting the conjugation of polyubiquitin chains and the subsequent proteasomal degradation of NUB1, Mdm2 rather induces its di-ubiquitination on lysine 159...

In eukaryotes, the conjugation of the ubiquitin-like protein NEDD8 onto protein targets is an important post-translational modification. The best understood neddylation targets are the cullins, scaffold subunits of E3 ubiquitin ligases, where neddylation as well as deneddylation, facilitated by the protease activity of the CSN (COP9 signalosome), are required to control ubiquitin ligase assembly, function and ultimately substrate degradation. Little is known about the role of other deneddylating enzymes besides CSN and the role of neddylation and deneddylation of their substrates...

: Hepatic fibrosis is a global health problem currently without effective therapeutic approaches. Even though the ubiquitin-like posttranslational modification of neddylation, that conjugates Nedd8 (neural precursor cell expressed developmentally downregulated) to specific targets, is aberrant in many pathologies, its relevance in liver fibrosis (LF) remained unexplored. Our results show deregulated neddylation in clinical fibrosis and both in mouse bileductligation- and CCl4 -induced fibrosis...

Like ubiquitination, several studies have demonstrated that neddylation is implicated to be involved in the double strand break repair. BRCA1 is one of the key repair factors in the homologous recombination repair and may play a downstream role of the neddylation. BRCA1 is also a frequently mutated gene in cancers, which serve as the targets for PARP inhibitors. Here we further investigated the correlation between neddylation and BRCA1 complex using neddylation inhibitor MLN4924. MLN4924 efficiently inhibited the recruitment of components of BRCA1 complex to DNA damage sites...

Vascular endothelial-cadherin, a major endothelial adhesion molecule, regulates vascular permeability, and increased vascular permeability has been observed in several cancers. The aim of this study was to elucidate the role of the NEDD8-Cullin E3 ligase, in maintaining barrier permeability. To this end, we investigated the effects of the inhibition of Cullin E3 ligases, by using inhibitors and knockdown techniques in human umbilical vein endothelial cells. Further, we analyzed the mRNA and protein levels of the ligases by quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and western blotting, respectively...

Protein posttranslational modifications such as neddylation play crucial roles in regulating protein function. Only a few neddylated substrates have been validated to date, and the role of neddylation remains poorly understood. Here, using Trypanosoma brucei as the model organism, we investigated the function and substrates of TbNedd8. TbNedd8 is distributed throughout the cytosol but enriched in the nucleus and the flagellum. Depletion of TbNedd8 by RNAi abolished global protein ubiquitination, caused DNA re-replication in postmitotic cells, impaired spindle assembly, and compromised the flagellum attachment zone filament, leading to flagellum detachment...

Myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88) plays a central role in innate immunity response, however, how its activity is tightly regulated remains largely unknown. In this study, we identify MyD88 as a novel substrate of NEDD8, and demonstrate that MyD88 NEDDylation antagonizes its ubiquitination. Interestingly, in response to the stimulation of IL-1β, MyD88 NEDDylation is downregulated while its ubiquitination is upregulated. We also show that deNEDDylase NEDP1 serves as a regulator of this process. Furthermore, we demonstrate that NEDD8 negatively regulates the dimerization of MyD88 and suppresses MyD88-dependent NF-κB signaling...

VACM-1/CUL5 is a member of the cullin family of proteins involved in the E3 ligase-dependent degradation of diverse proteins that regulate cellular proliferation. The ability of VACM-1/CUL5 to inhibit cellular growth is affected by its posttranslational modifications and its localization to the nucleus. Since the mechanism of VACM-1/CUL5 translocation to the nucleus is not clear, the goal of this project was to determine the role that the putative nuclear localization signal (NLS) we identified in the VACM-1/CUL5 ((640)PKLKRQ(646)) plays in the cellular localization of VACM-1/CUL5 and its effect on cellular growth...

Allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) is the sole treatment option for highly malignant hematologic disease; however, the major complication-graft-versus-host disease (GVHD)-still hinders its clinical application. In addition, chronic GVHD remains the major cause of long-term morbidity and mortality after allo-HSCT. Previously we showed that bortezomib, a proteasome inhibitor, can ameliorate the sclerodermatous GVHD response while maintaining graft-versus-tumor (GVT) effects. Here we report that pevonedistat (MLN4924), an inhibitor of the Nedd8-activating enzyme, which functions upstream of the proteasome in the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway, can also show similar protective effects...

Background The neddylation pathway conjugates NEDD8 to cullin-RING ligases and controls the proteasomal degradation of specific proteins involved in essential cell processes. Pevonedistat (MLN4924) is a selective small molecule targeting the NEDD8-activating enzyme (NAE) and inhibits an early step in neddylation, resulting in DNA re-replication, cell cycle arrest and death. We investigated the anti-tumor potential of pevonedistat in preclinical models of melanoma. Methods Melanoma cell lines and patient-derived tumor xenografts (PDTX) treated with pevonedistat were assessed for viability/apoptosis and tumor growth, respectively, to identify sensitive/resistant models...

The COP9 signalosome (CSN) is a central component of the activation and remodelling cycle of cullin-RING E3 ubiquitin ligases (CRLs), the largest enzyme family of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in humans. CRLs are implicated in the regulation of numerous cellular processes, including cell cycle progression and apoptosis, and aberrant CRL activity is frequently associated with cancer. Remodelling of CRLs is initiated by CSN-catalysed cleavage of the ubiquitin-like activator NEDD8 from CRLs. Here we describe CSN5i-3, a potent, selective and orally available inhibitor of CSN5, the proteolytic subunit of CSN...

Recent work has revealed a central role for neddylation (the conjugation of a Nedd8-moiety to Cullin proteins) in the fine tuning of the NF-κB response (via Cullin-1). In the present study, we investigated the contribution of Cullin-1 neddylation and NF-κB signaling to mucosal inflammatory responses in vitro and in vivo. Initial in vitro studies using cultured intestinal epithelial cells revealed that the neddylation inhibitor MLN4924 prominently induces the deneddylation of Cullin-1. Parallel western blot, luciferase reporter and gene target assays identified MLN4924 as a potent inhibitor of intestinal epithelial NF-κB...

Identifying the protein targets of bioactive small molecules remains a major problem in the discovery of new chemical probes and therapeutics. While activity-based probes and photo-cross-linkers have had success in identifying protein targets of small molecules, each technique has limitations. Here we describe a method for direct proximity tagging of proteins that bind small molecules. We engineered a promiscuous ligase based on the NEDD8 conjugating enzyme, Ubc12, which can be covalently linked to a small molecule of interest...

The COP9 signalosome (CSN) is an evolutionary conserved complex that is found in all eukaryotes, and implicated in regulating the activity of Cullin-RING ubiquitin Ligases (CRLs). Activity of CRLs is highly regulated; complexes are active when the cullin subunit is covalently attached to the ubiquitin like modifier, Nedd8. Neddylation/deneddylation cycles are required for proper CRLs activity, and deneddylation is performed by the CSN complex.We describe here a method utilizing resin-coupled antibodies to deplete the CSN from human cell extracts, and to obtain endogenous CSN complexes by immunopurification...

Type I interferons such as interferon-beta (IFN-β) play essential roles in the host innate immune response to herpes simplex virus type I (HSV-1) infection. The transcription of type I interferon genes is controlled by nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) and interferon regulatory factor (IRF) family members including IRF3. NF-κB activation depends on the phosphorylation of inhibitor of κB (IκB), which triggers its ubiqitination and degradation. It has been reported that neddylation inhibition by a pharmacological agent MLN4924 potently suppresses lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced proinflammatory cytokine production with the accumulation of phosphorylated IκBα...

Purpose: Recent studies have shown that the process of protein neddylation was abnormally activated in several human cancers. However, it is unknown whether and how UBE2F, a less characterized neddylation E2, regulates lung cancer cell survival, and whether and how NOXA, a proapoptotic protein, is ubiquitylated and degraded by which E3 and via which ubiquitin linkage.Experimental Design: Methods of immunohistochemistry and immunoblotting were utilized to examine UBE2F protein expression. The biological functions of UBE2F were evaluated by in vitro cell culture and in vivo xenograft models...

Neddylation is a crucial post-translational modification that depends on the E3 cullin ring ligase (CRL). The E2-adapter component of the CRL, sensitive to apoptosis gene (SAG), is critical for the function of CRL-mediated ubiquitination; thus, the deletion of SAG regulates neddylation. We examined the role of SAG-dependent neddylation in T-cell-mediated immunity using multiple approaches: a novel T-cell-specific, SAG genetic knockout (KO) and chemical inhibition with small-molecule MLN4924. The KO animals were viable and showed phenotypically normal mature T-cell development...
