RYBP (Ring1 and YY1 binding protein, UniProt ID: Q8N488) is an epigenetic factor with a key role during embryonic development; it does also show an apoptotic function and an ubiquitin binding activity. RYBP is an intrinsically disordered protein (IDP), with a Zn-finger domain at its N-terminal region, which folds upon binding to DNA. It is predicted that RYBP has a nuclear localization sequence (NLS), comprising residues Asn58 to Lys83, to allow for nuclear translocation. Read More

The Polycomb group protein Ring1 regulates dorsoventral patterning of the mouse telencephalon.

Nat Commun 2020 11 11;11(1):5709. Epub 2020 Nov 11.

Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, The University of Tokyo, 7-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo, 113-0033, Japan.

Dorsal-ventral patterning of the mammalian telencephalon is fundamental to the formation of distinct functional regions including the neocortex and ganglionic eminence. While Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP), Wnt, and Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling are known to determine regional identity along the dorsoventral axis, how the region-specific expression of these morphogens is established remains unclear. Here we show that the Polycomb group (PcG) protein Ring1 contributes to the ventralization of the mouse telencephalon. Read More

Biological functions of chromobox (CBX) proteins in stem cell self-renewal, lineage-commitment, cancer and development.

Bone 2021 02 24;143:115659. Epub 2020 Sep 24.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, United States of America.

Epigenetic regulatory proteins support mammalian development, cancer, aging and tissue repair by controlling many cellular processes including stem cell self-renewal, lineage-commitment and senescence in both skeletal and non-skeletal tissues. We review here our knowledge of epigenetic regulatory protein complexes that support the formation of inaccessible heterochromatin and suppress expression of cell and tissue-type specific biomarkers during development. Maintenance and formation of heterochromatin critically depends on epigenetic regulators that recognize histone 3 lysine trimethylation at residues K9 and K27 (respectively, H3K9me3 and H3K27me3), which represent transcriptionally suppressive epigenetic marks.

RYBP is important for cardiac progenitor cell development and sarcomere formation.

PLoS One 2020 16;15(7):e0235922. Epub 2020 Jul 16.

Biological Research Centre, Szeged, Hungary.

We have previously established that epigenetic regulator RING1 and YY1 binding protein (RYBP) is required for the contractility of embryonic stem (ES) cell derived cardiomyocytes (CMCs), suggesting its essential role in contractility. In order to investigate the underlying molecular events of this phenotype, we compared the transcriptomic profile of the wild type and Rybp null mutant ES cells and CMCs differentiated from these cell lines. We identified genes related to ion homeostasis, cell adhesion and sarcomeric organization affected in the Rybp null mutant CMCs, by using hierarchical gene clustering and Gene Ontology analysis.

Biological Research Centre, Temesvári krt. 62, H-6726 Szeged, Hungary.

Separation of germline cells from somatic lineages is one of the earliest decisions of embryogenesis. Genes expressed in germline cells include apoptotic and meiotic factors, which are not transcribed in the soma normally, but a number of testis-specific genes are active in numerous cancer types. During germ cell development, germ-cell-specific genes can be regulated by specific transcription factors, retinoic acid signaling and multimeric protein complexes. Read More

Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, University of Kalyani, Kalyani, Nadia 741235, India. Electronic address:

Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by progressive death of dopamine producing neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta of the mid brain. Dysfunction of an E3 ligase protein, Parkin, encoded by PARK2 gene, results in accumulation of misfolded proteins in brain cells which lead to the onset of PD. Parkin is a multi-domain protein consisting of N-terminal ubiquitin-like domain (Ubl) followed by RING0, RING1, In Between Ring (IBR) domain and RING2 domain which is present at the C-terminal end of Parkin protein.

How tissue patterns are formed and maintained are fundamental questions. The murine tongue epithelium, a paradigm for tissue patterning, consists of an array of specialized fungiform papillae structures that harbor taste cells. The formation of fungiform papillae is preceded by pronounced spatial changes in gene expression, in which taste cell genes such as Shh, initially diffused in lingual epithelial progenitors, become restricted to taste cells when their specification progresses.

IEO European Institute of Oncology IRCCS, Department of Experimental Oncology, Via Adamello 16, 20139 Milan, Italy; University of Milan, Department of Health Sciences, Via A. di Rudinì, 8, 20142 Milan, Italy. Electronic address:

Polycomb repressive complexes 1 and 2 (PRC1 and PRC2) control cell identity by establishing facultative heterochromatin repressive domains at common sets of target genes. PRC1, which deposits H2Aub1 through the E3 ligases RING1A/B, forms six biochemically distinct subcomplexes depending on the assembled PCGF protein (PCGF1-PCGF6); however, it is yet unclear whether these subcomplexes have also specific activities. Here we show that PCGF1 and PCGF2 largely compensate for each other, while other PCGF proteins have high levels of specificity for distinct target genes. Read More

Synergistic recruitment of UbcH7~Ub and phosphorylated Ubl domain triggers parkin activation.

EMBO J 2018 12 16;37(23). Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Department of Biochemistry, The University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada

The E3 ligase parkin ubiquitinates outer mitochondrial membrane proteins during oxidative stress and is linked to early-onset Parkinson's disease. Parkin is autoinhibited but is activated by the kinase PINK1 that phosphorylates ubiquitin leading to parkin recruitment, and stimulates phosphorylation of parkin's N-terminal ubiquitin-like (pUbl) domain. How these events alter the structure of parkin to allow recruitment of an E2~Ub conjugate and enhanced ubiquitination is an unresolved question. Read More
