摘要

The human topoisomerase I- and p53-binding protein topors contains a highly conserved N-terminal C3HC4-type RING domain that is homologous to the RING domains of known E3 ubiquitin ligases. We demonstrate that topors functions in vitro as a RING-dependent E3 ubiquitin ligase with the E2 enzymes UbcH5a, UbcH5c, and UbcH6 but not with UbcH7, CDC34, or UbcH2b. Additional studies indicate that a conserved tryptophan within the topors RING domain is required for ubiquitination activity. Furthermore, both in vitro and cellular studies implicate p53 as a ubiquitination substrate for topors. Similar to MDM2, overexpression of topors results in a proteasome-dependent decrease in p53 protein expression in a human osteosarcoma cell line. These results are similar to the recent finding that a Drosophila topors orthologue ubiquitinates the Hairy transcriptional repressor and suggest that topors functions as a ubiquitin ligase for multiple transcription factors.
