The budding yeast proteins Dma1 and Dma2 are members of the unique FHA-RING domain protein family and are linked to mitotic regulation and septin organization by ill-defined mechanisms. We show that Dma2 has ubiquitin ligase activity, and that septins Shs1 and Cdc11 are likely direct in vivo targets. We further propose that human RNF8, rather than Chfr, is the mammalian Dma homolog. As in yeast, RNF8 localizes to the centrosomes and cell division sites and promotes ubiquitylation of the septin SEPT7, whose depletion increases cell division anomalies. Together, these findings reveal evolutionary and functional conservation of Dma proteins, and suggest that RNF8 maintains genome stability through independent, yet analogous, nuclear and cytoplasmic ubiquitylation activities.

The crystal structure and conformations of an unbranched mixed tri-ubiquitin chain containing K48 and K63 linkages. Padala, P; Soudah, N; Giladi, M; Haitin, Y; Isupov, MN; Wiener, R (Elsevier, 2017-10-27)The ability of ubiquitin to function in a wide range of cellular processes is ascribed to its capacity to cause a diverse spectrum of modifications. While a target protein can be modified with monoubiquitin, it can also ...
