Characterization of the selective hydrolysis of branched ubiquitin chains by Uch37 and its activator Rpn13
The ubiquitin (Ub) C-terminal hydrolase, Uch37, can be found associated with the 26S proteasome as well as the INO80 chromatin remodeling complex. Bound to the 26S proteasome, it assists in regulating the degradation of Ub modified proteins. The proteasomal subunit Rpn13 binds Uch37, anchors it to the proteasome 19S regulatory particle and enhances the deubiquitinating enzyme's (DUB's) catalytic activity. While the structure of the Uch37/Rpn13 complex bound to a single Ub molecule has been characterized, much still remains unknown regarding the enzyme's substrate specificity, the molecular basis ...
