neXtProt entry for RNF187 Gene

Post-translational modifications for RNF187 Gene

  • Ubiquitinated; undergoes 'Lys-48'-linked autoubiquitination in the absence of growth factors and MAP3K1-induced 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitination (PubMed:20852630). 'Lys-48'-autoubiquitination leads to degradation by the proteasome, while MAP3K1-induced 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitination results in the stabilization of the protein (PubMed:20852630). '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 (PubMed:20852630). Other sites of ubiquitination are not excluded (PubMed:20852630). 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitination by TRIM7 in response to growth factor signaling via the MEK/ERK pathway enhances protein stability (PubMed:25851810).
  • 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.
  • Ubiquitination at Lys161, Lys195, Lys223, and Lys224
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
