Abstract

Ubiquitin-like proteins (UBLs) are posttranslational modifiers with a structurally conserved β-grasp fold. These sequence-wise unrelated proteins share similar modification mechanism with ubiquitin and regulate every facet of eukaryote life. With rapidly advancing proteomic techniques, it is now possible to systemically decode UBL modification on protein functions. In this article, we first cover basic biochemical principles of UBL cycling. Then, a brief review of biological implications on several well-characterized UBLs (small ubiquitin-like modifiers (SUMOs), neural precursor cell expressed, developmentally down regulated 8 (NEDD8), interferon-induced 15-kDa protein (Isg15), Atg8, Atg12, and Fat10) is provided.
