Background: Ubiquitously eXpressed Transcript isoform 2 (UXT-V2) is a prefoldin-like protein involved in NF-kappa B signaling, apoptosis, and the androgen and estrogen response. UXT-V2 is a cofactor in the NF-kappa B transcriptional enhanceosome, and its knockdown inhibits TNF-alpha -induced NF-kappa B activation. Fbxo7 is an F-box protein that interacts with SKP1, Cullin1 and RBX1 proteins to form an SCF(Fbxo7) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex. Fbxo7 negatively regulates NF-kappa B signaling through TRAF2 and cIAP1 ubiquitination. Methods: We combine co-immunoprecipitation, ubiquitination in vitro and in vivo, cycloheximide chase assay, ubiquitin chain restriction analysis and microscopy to investigate interaction between Fbxo7 and overexpressed UXT-V2-HA. Results: The Ub1 domain of Fbxo7 contributes to interaction with UXT-V2. This substrate is polyubiquitinated by SCF(Fbxo7) with K48 and K63 ubiquitin chain linkages in vitro and in vivo. This post-translational modification decreases UXT-V2 stability and promotes its proteasomal degradation. We further show that UXT-V1, an alternatively spliced isoform of UXT, containing 12 additional amino acids at the N-terminus as compared to UXT-V2, also interacts with and is ubiquitinated by Fbxo7. Moreover, FBXO7 knockdown promotes UXT-V2 accumulation, and the overexpression of Fbxo7-Delta F-box protects UXT-V2 from proteasomal degradation and enhances the responsiveness of NF-kappa B reporter. We find that UXT-V2 colocalizes with Fbxo7 in the cell nucleus. Conclusions: Together, our study reveals that SCF(Fbxo7) mediates the proteasomal degradation of UXT-V2 causing the inhibition of the NF-kappa B signaling pathway. General significance: Discovering new substrates of E3 ubiquitin-ligase SCF(Fbxo7) contributes to understand its function in different diseases such as cancer and Parkinson. (AU)
