E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase Mdm2 - Q7YRZ8 (MDM2_FELCA)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that mediates ubiquitination of p53/TP53, leading to its degradation by the proteasome. Inhibits p53/TP53- and p73/TP73-mediated cell cycle arrest and apoptosis by binding its transcriptional activation domain. Also acts as a ubiquitin ligase E3 toward itself and ARRB1. Permits the nuclear export of p53/TP53. Promotes proteasome-dependent ubiquitin-independent degradation of retinoblastoma RB1 protein. Inhibits DAXX-mediated apoptosis by inducing its ubiquitination and degradation. Component of the TRIM28/KAP1-MDM2-p53/TP53 complex involved in stabilizing p53/TP53. Also component of the TRIM28/KAP1-ERBB4-MDM2 complex which links growth factor and DNA damage response pathways. Mediates ubiquitination and subsequent proteasome degradation of DYRK2 in nucleus. Ubiquitinates IGF1R and SNAI1 and promotes them to proteasomal degradation. Ubiquitinates DCX, leading to DCX degradation and reduction of the dendritic spine density of olfactory bulb granule cells. Ubiquitinates DLG4, leading to proteasomal degradation of DLG4 which is required for AMPA receptor endocytosis. UniProt

Subunit Structure
Interacts with p53/TP53, TP73/p73, RBL5 and RP11. Binds specifically to RNA. Can interact with RB1, E1A-associated protein EP300 and the E2F1 transcription factor. Forms a ternary complex with p53/TP53 and WWOX. Interacts with CDKN2AIP, RFWD3, USP7, PYHIN1 and RBBP6. Interacts with ARRB1 and ARRB2. Interacts with PSMA3. Found in a trimeric complex with MDM2, MDM4 and USP2. Interacts with USP2 (via N-terminus and C-terminus). Interacts with MDM4. Part of a complex with MDM2, DAXX, RASSF1 and USP7. Part of a complex with DAXX, MDM2 and USP7. Interacts directly with DAXX and USP7. Interacts (via C-terminus) with RASSF1 isoform A (via N-terminus); the interaction is independent of TP53. Interacts with APEX1; leading to its ubiquitination and degradation. Interacts with RYBP; this inhibits ubiquitination of TP53. Identified in a complex with RYBP and p53/TP53. Also component of the TRIM28/KAP1-MDM2-p53/TP53 complex involved in regulating p53/TP53 stabilization and activity. Binds directly both p53/TP53 and TRIM28. Component of the TRIM28/KAP1-ERBB4-MDM2 complex involved in connecting growth factor responses with DNA damage. Interacts directly with both TRIM28 and ERBB4 in the complex. Interacts with DYRK2. Interacts with IGF1R. Interacts with TRIM13; the interaction ubiquitinates MDM2 leading to its proteasomal degradation. Interacts with SNAI1; this interaction promotes SNAI1 ubiquitination. Interacts with NOTCH1 (via intracellular domain). Interacts with FHIT. Interacts with RFFL and RNF34; the interaction stabilizes MDM2. Interacts with CDK5RAP3 and CDKN2A/ARF; form a ternary complex involved in regulation of p53/TP53. Interacts with MTA1. Interacts with AARB2. Interacts with MTBP. Interacts with PML. Interacts with RPL11. Interacts with TBRG1. Interacts with the 5S RNP which is composed of the 5S RNA, RPL5 and RPL11; the interaction is direct occurs in the nucleoplasm and negatively regulates MDM2-mediated TP53 ubiquitination and degradation. Interacts with ADGRB1; the interaction results in inhibition of MDM2-mediated ubiquitination and degradation of DLG4/PSD95, promoting DLG4 stability and regulating synaptic plasticity. Interacts with RPL23A; this interaction may promote p53/TP53 polyubiquitination (By similarity). UniProt
Region I is sufficient for binding p53 and inhibiting its G1 arrest and apoptosis functions. It also binds p73 and E2F1. Region II contains most of a central acidic region required for interaction with ribosomal protein L5 and a putative C4-type zinc finger. The RING finger domain which coordinates two molecules of zinc interacts specifically with RNA whether or not zinc is present and mediates the heterooligomerization with MDM4. It is also essential for its ubiquitin ligase E3 activity toward p53 and itself (By similarity). UniProt

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.
