Post-translational modifications for RNF187 Gene

  • Arginine methylation by PRMT1 stabilizes RNF187 by facilitating K63-linked ubiquitin chain formation, and enables dimerization, c-Jun interaction and subsequent AP1 target gene expression.
  • Ubiquitinated; undergoes Lys-48-linked autoubiquitination in the absence of growth factors and MAP3K1-induced Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination. Lys-48-autoubiquitination leads to degradation by the proteasome, while MAP3K1-induced Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination results in the stabilization of the protein. Lys-48- and Lys-63-linked polyubiquitinations occur most probably on the same 3 C-terminal lysine residues (Lys-195, Lys-223 and Lys-224) and are thus mutually exclusive. Other sites of ubiquitination are not excluded.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys 161, Lys 195, Lys 223, and Lys 224
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
