However, the E2 and E3 involved in the recognition of particular substrates have been identified in only a few cases. The ubiquitin-protein ligase E6-associated protein (E6-AP) was originally identified as a protein involved in the human papillomavirus E6-oncoprotein-induced degradation of p53. The substrate proteins of E6-AP in the absence of the E6 oncoprotein, however, have not been identified. We show here that E6-AP can target itself for ubiquitination in vitro and provide evidence that, under conditions of overexpression, E6-AP efficiently promotes its own degradation in vivo. Autoubiquitination of E6-AP is mediated mainly by intermolecular transfer of ubiquitin. In addition, highly ubiquitinated forms of E6- AP cannot bind to p53 in the presence of the E6 oncoprotein and, conversely, binding of E6-AP to p53 interferes with ubiquitination of E6-AP. These results suggest that autoubiquitination and subsequent degradation of E6-AP represents a mechanism to control intracellular E6-AP levels by inactivating E6- AP molecules that are not bound to substrate proteins.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-06-22T08:13:46Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2018-06-22T08:13:46Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Nuber, Ulrike</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Schwarz, Sylvia E.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:title>The ubiquitin‐protein ligase E6‐associated protein (E6‐AP) serves as its own substrate</dcterms:title> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/42647"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:creator>Schwarz, Sylvia E.</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>1998-06-15</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
