Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

  • Number of PDB entries for Q14999: 1
Core component of the 3M and Cul7-RING(FBXW8) complexes, which mediates the ubiquitination of target proteins. Core component of the 3M complex, a complex required to regulate microtubule dynamics and genome integrity. It is unclear how the 3M complex regulates microtubules, it could act by controlling the level of a microtubule stabilizer (PubMed:24793695). Interaction with CUL9 is required to inhibit CUL9 activity and ubiquitination of BIRC5 (PubMed:24793696). Core component of a Cul7-RING ubiquitin-protein ligase with FBXW8, which mediates ubiquitination and consequent degradation of target proteins such as GORASP1, IRS1 and MAP4K1/HPK1 (PubMed:21572988, PubMed:24362026). Ubiquitination of GORASP1 regulates Golgi morphogenesis and dendrite patterning in brain (PubMed:21572988). Mediates ubiquitination and degradation of IRS1 in a mTOR-dependent manner: the Cul7-RING(FBXW8) complex recognizes and binds IRS1 previously phosphorylated by S6 kinase (RPS6KB1 or RPS6KB2) (PubMed:18498745). The Cul7-RING(FBXW8) complex also mediates ubiquitination of MAP4K1/HPK1: recognizes and binds autophosphorylated MAP4K1/HPK1, leading to its degradation, thereby affecting cell proliferation and differentiation (PubMed:24362026). Acts as a regulator in trophoblast cell epithelial-mesenchymal transition and placental development (PubMed:20139075). Does not promote polyubiquitination and proteasomal degradation of p53/TP53 (PubMed:16547496, PubMed:17332328). While the Cul7-RING(FBXW8) and the 3M complexes are associated and involved in common processes, CUL7 and the Cul7-RING(FBXW8) complex may be have additional functions. UniProt

Subunit Structure
Component of the 3M complex, composed of core components CUL7, CCDC8 and OBSL1. Part of a Cul7-RING complex consisting of CUL7, RBX1, SKP1 and FBXW8. Interacts with a complex of SKP1 and FBXW8, but not with SKP1 alone. Interacts with CUL9; leading to inhibit CUL9 activity. Interacts with FBXW8; interaction is mutually exclusive of binding to CUL9 or p53/TP53. Interacts with p53/TP53; the interaction preferentially involves tetrameric and dimeric p53/TP53. The CUL7-CUL9 heterodimer seems to interact specifically with p53/TP53. Interacts with CUL1; the interactions seems to be mediated by FBXW8. Interacts with SV40 Large T antigen; this interaction seems to inhibit CUL7. Interacts with OBSL1. Interacts (as part of the 3M complex) with HDAC4 and HDAC5; it is negatively regulated by ANKRA2.

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
