Ubiquitylation features

Ubiquitylation site  

Ubiquitylation type Not Determined
Features Under physiological conditions ubiquitylation does not target BRCA2 to proteasomal degradation, as shown by treatment with MG132 proteasomal inhibitor. However, treatment with Mitomycin C (MMC), the DNA interstrand cross-linking agent, increases ubiquitylation level and leads to proteasomal degradation of ubiquitylated BRCA2.

Ubiquitylation/deubiquitylation machinery

E2 Not determined
E3 Not determined
E4/AP Not determined
DUB Not determined
Comments BRCA2 specifically forms complexes with a deubiquitylating enzyme USP11. USP11 can deubiquitylate BRCA2 in vitro or in overexpression assay, but not in vivo. BRCA2 may play a role in recruiting USP11 to its physiologic substrate.


[1]Schoenfeld AR, Apgar S, Dolios G, Wang R, Aaronson SA.
BRCA2 is ubiquitinated in vivo and interacts with USP11, a deubiquitinating enzyme that exhibits prosurvival function in the cellular response to DNA damage. Mol Cell Biol. 24(17):7444-55 (2004).
