Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are recognized as functional non-coding transcripts in eukaryotic cells. Recent evidence has indicated that even though circRNAs are generally expressed at low levels, they may be involved in many physiological or pathological processes, such as gene regulation, tissue development and carcinogenesis. Although the 'microRNA sponge' function is well characterized, most circRNAs do not contain perfect trapping sites for microRNAs, which suggests the possibility that circRNAs have functions that have not yet been defined...

AIMS: Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has a protective role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis by multiple pathways. Sirtuin-1 (SIRT1) is a histone deacetylase, as an essential mediated longevity gene, and has an anti-atherogenic effect by regulating the acetylation of some functional proteins. Whether SIRT1 is involved in protecting H2S in atherosclerosis and its mechanism remains unclear. RESULTS: In ApoE-knockout atherosclerosis mice, treatment with an H2S donor (NaHS or GYY4137) reduced atherosclerotic plaque area, macrophage infiltration, aortic inflammation and plasma lipid level...

BACKGROUND: Viral protein R (Vpr) is an accessory protein of HIV-1, which is potentially involved in the infection of macrophages and the induction of the ataxia-telangiectasia and Rad3-related protein (ATR)-mediated DNA damage response (DDR). It was recently proposed that the SLX4 complex of structure-specific endonuclease is involved in Vpr-induced DDR, which implies that aberrant DNA structures are responsible for this phenomenon. However, the mechanism by which Vpr alters the DNA structures remains unclear...

Polycomb group proteins regulate self-renewal and differentiation in many stem cell systems. When assembled into two canonical complexes, PRC1 and PRC2, they sequentially deposit H3K27me3 and H2AK119ub histone marks and establish repressive chromatin, referred to as Polycomb domains. Non-canonical PRC1 complexes retain RING1/RNF2 E3-ubiquitin ligases but have unique sets of accessory subunits. How these non-canonical complexes recognize and regulate their gene targets remains poorly understood. Here, we show that the BCL6 co-repressor (BCOR), a member of the PRC1...

BRCA1-BARD1-catalyzed ubiquitination of histone H2A is an important regulator of the DNA damage response, priming chromatin for repair by homologous recombination. However, no specific deubiquitinating enzymes (DUBs) are known to antagonize this function. Here we identify ubiquitin specific protease-48 (USP48) as a H2A DUB, specific for the C-terminal BRCA1 ubiquitination site. Detailed biochemical analysis shows that an auxiliary ubiquitin, an additional ubiquitin that itself does not get cleaved, modulates USP48 activity, which has possible implications for its regulation in vivo...

Sumoylation, the conjugation of a small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) protein to a target, has diverse cellular effects. However, the functional roles of the SUMO modification during myogenesis have not been fully elucidated. Here, we report that basal sumoylation of histone deacetylase 1 (HDAC1) enhances the deacetylation of MyoD in undifferentiated myoblasts, whereas further sumoylation of HDAC1 contributes to switching its binding partners from MyoD to Rb to induce myocyte differentiation. Differentiation in C2C12 skeletal myoblasts induced new immunoblot bands above HDAC1 that were gradually enhanced during differentiation...

Accurate sister chromatid segregation is pivotal in the faithful transmission of genetic information during each cell division. To ensure accurate segregation, eukaryotic organisms have evolved a "mitotic (or spindle assembly) checkpoint" to prevent premature advance to anaphase before successful attachment of every chromosome to the microtubules of the mitotic spindle. An unattached kinetochore generates a diffusible signal that inhibits ubiquitination of substrates such as cyclin B and securins. This protocol presents an in vitro assay for studying the mitotic checkpoint using Xenopus laevis egg extracts...

Protein lysine acetylation is a highly conserved post-translational modification with various biological functions. However, only a limited number of acetylation sites have been reported in plants, especially in cereals, and the function of non-histone protein acetylation is still largely unknown. In this report, we identified 1003 lysine acetylation sites in 692 proteins of developing rice seeds, which greatly extended the number of known acetylated sites in plants. Seven distinguished motifs were detected flanking acetylated lysine...

The Notch signaling pathway is a key regulator of stem cells during development, and its deregulated activity is linked to developmental defects and cancer. Transcriptional activation of Notch target genes requires cleavage of the Notch receptor in response to ligand binding, production of the Notch intracellular domain (NICD1), NICD1 migration into the nucleus, and assembly of a transcriptional complex. Post-translational modifications of Notch regulate its trafficking, turnover, and transcriptional activity...

Epigenetic abnormalities are now realized as important as genetic alterations in contributing to the initiation and progression of cancer. Recent advancements in the cancer epigenetics field have identified extensive alterations of the epigenetic network in human cancers, including histone modifications and DNA methylation. F-box proteins, the substrate receptors of SCF (SKP1-Cullin1-F-box protein) E3 ubiquitin ligases, can directly and indirectly affect the balance of epigenetic regulation. In this brief review, we discuss our current understanding of F-box proteins in cellular epigenetic regulation and how dysregulation of these processes contribute to cancer development...

The hMOF protein belongs to the MYST family of histone acetyltransferases and plays a critical role in transcription and the DNA damage response. MOF is essential for cell proliferation, however its role during replication and replicative stress is unknown. Here we demonstrate that cells depleted for MOF and under replicative stress induced by cisplatin, hydroxyurea or camptothecin have reduced survival, a higher frequency of S-phase specific chromosome damage and increased R-loop formation. MOF depletion decreased replication fork speed and, when combined with replicative stress, also increased stalled replication forks as well as new origin firing...

Heterochromatin formation in budding yeast is regulated by the silent information regulator (SIR) complex. The SIR complex comprises the NAD-dependent deacetylase Sir2, the scaffolding protein Sir4, and the nucleosome-binding protein Sir3. Transcriptionally active regions present a challenge to SIR complex-mediated de novo heterochromatic silencing due to the presence of antagonistic histone PTMs, including acetylation and methylation. Methylation of histone H3K4 and H3K79 are dependent on mono-ubiquitination of histone H2B (H2B-Ub)...

Ubiquitin-like containing plant homeodomain and RING finger domains 1 (UHRF1) is an anti-apoptotic protein involved in the silencing of several tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) through epigenetic modifications including DNA methylation and histone post-translational alterations, and also epigenetic-independent mechanisms. UHRF1 overexpression is observed in a number of solid tumors and hematological malignancies, and is considered a primary mechanism in inhibiting apoptosis. UHRF1 exerts its inhibitory activity on TSGs by binding to functional domains and therefore influences several epigenetic actors including DNA methyltransferase, histone deacetylase 1, histone acetyltransferase Tat-interacting protein 60 and histone methyltransferases G9a and Suv39H1...

Histone H2b monoubiquitination plays a critical role in the regulation of gene transcription. Deregulation of H2b monoubiquitination contributes to human pathologies, such as cancer. Here we report that human USP36 is a novel H2bub1 deubiquitinase. We show that USP36 interacts with H2b and deubiquitinates H2bub1 in cells and in vitro. Overexpression of USP36 markedly reduced the levels of H2bub1 in cells. Using the p21 gene as a model, we demonstrate that depletion of USP36 increases H2bub1 at the p21 locus, primarily within its gene body...

Spermatogenesis consists of a series of highly regulated processes that include mitotic proliferation, meiosis and cellular remodeling. Although alterations in gene expression are well known to modulate spermatogenesis, posttranscriptional mechanisms are less well defined. The ubiquitin proteasome system plays a significant role in protein turnover and may be involved in these posttranscriptional mechanisms. We previously identified ubiquitin ligase Huwe1 in the testis and showed that it can ubiquitinate histones...

Post-translational modification by the Small Ubiquitin-related Modifier (SUMO) is indispensable for diverse biological mechanisms. Although various attempts have been made to discover novel SUMO substrate proteins to unveil the roles of SUMOylation, the reversibility of SUMOylation, and the differences in the SUMOylation level still makes it difficult to explore infrequently-SUMOylated proteins in mammalian cells. Here, we developed a method to screen for mammalian SUMOylated proteins using the reconstitution of split fluorescent protein fragments in living mammalian cells...

A competent DNA damage response (DDR) helps prevent cancer, but once cancer has arisen DDR can blunt the efficacy of chemotherapy and radiotherapy which cause lethal DNA breakage in cancer cells. Thus, blocking DDR may improve the efficacy of these modalities. Here we report a new DDR mechanism that interfaces with inflammatory signaling and might be blocked to improve anticancer outcomes. Specifically, we report that the ubiquitin-editing enzyme A20 binds and inhibits the E3 ubiquitin ligase RNF168, which is responsible for regulating histone H2A turnover critical for proper DNA repair...

Phosphorylation of histone H3 at serine 10 (H3S10ph) by Aurora kinases plays an important role in mitosis; however, H3S10ph also marks regulatory regions of inducible genes in interphase mammalian cells, implicating mitosis-independent functions. Using the fluorescent ubiquitin-mediated cell cycle indicator (FUCCI), we found that 30% of the genome in interphase mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) is marked with H3S10ph. H3S10ph broadly demarcates gene-rich regions in G1 and is positively correlated with domains of early DNA replication timing (RT) but negatively correlated with H3K9me2 and lamin-associated domains (LADs)...

Mof4 family associated protein 1 (MRFAP1) is a 14 kDa nuclear protein, which involves in maintaining normal histone modification levels by negatively regulating recruitment of the NuA4 (nucleosome acetyltransferase of H4) histone acetyltransferase complex to chromatin. MRFAP1 has been identified as one of the most up-regulated proteins after NEDD8 (neural precursor cell expressed developmentally down-regulated 8) inhibition in multiple human cell lines. However, the biological function of MRFAP1 and the E3 ligase that targets MRFAP1 for destruction remain mysterious...
