SUMO enzymes

SUMO enzymes

SUMO enzymatic cascade catalyzes the dynamic posttranslational modification process of sumoylation (i.e. transfer of SUMO protein to other proteins). The Small Ubiquitin-related Modifier, SUMO-1 [Johnson, E.S. Protein modification by SUMO. Annu. Rev. Biochem. 73, 355–382 (2004)] [ Melchior, F. SUMO–nonclassical ubiquitin. Annu. Rev. Cell Dev. Biol. 16, 591–626 (2000)] , is a ubiquitin-like family member that is conjugated to its substrates through three discrete enzymatic steps (see the figure on the right): activation, involving the E1 enzyme (SAE1/SAE2) [Boggio R et al., A mechanism for inhibiting the SUMO pathway. Mol Cell. 2004 Nov 19;16(4):549-61] ; conjugation, involving the E2 enzyme (UBC9) [Bernier-Villamor, V. , Sampson, D.A. , Matunis, M.J. & Lima, C.D. Structural basis for E2-mediated SUMO conjugation revealed by a complex between ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme Ubc9 and RanGAP1. Cell 108, 345–356] [Lin, D. et al. Identification of a substrate recognition site on Ubc9. J. Biol. Chem. 277, 21740–21748 (2002)] ; substrate modification, through the cooperation of the E2 and E3 [Reverter, D. & Lima, C.D. Insights into E3 ligase activity revealed by a SUMO-RanGAP1-Ubc9-Nup358 complex. Nature 435, 687–692] protein ligases [Melchior, F. , Schergaut, M. & Pichler, A. SUMO: ligases, isopeptidases and nuclear pores. Trends Biochem. Sci. 28, 612–618] .

SUMO pathway modifies hundreds of proteins that participate in diverse cellular processes [ Johnson ES. Protein modification by SUMO. Annu Rev Biochem 2004;73:355–82] . SUMO pathway is the most studied ubiquitin-like pathway that regulates a wide range of cellular events [ O. Kerscher, R. Felberbaum and M. Hochstrasser, Modification of proteins by ubiquitin and ubiquitin-like proteins, Annu. Rev. Cell Dev. Biol. (2006) Jun 5, Electronic publication ahead of print] , evidenced by a large number of sumoylated proteins identified in more than ten large-scale studies [W. Zhou, J.J. Ryan and H. Zhou, Global analyses of sumoylated proteins in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Induction of protein sumoylation by cellular stresses, J. Biol. Chem. 279 (2004), pp. 32262–32268] [T. Li, E. Evdokimov, R.F.
