Title: Factors involved in ubiquitination and deubiquitination of PEX5, the peroxisomal shuttling receptor
Publisher: Springer-Verlag Wien
Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: Peroxisomal matrix proteins are synthesized on cytosolic ribosomes and post-translationally targeted to the organelle by the soluble factor PEX5. Besides a role as a receptor, and probably as a chaperone, PEX5 also holds the key to the matrix of the organelle. Indeed, the available data suggest that PEX5 itself pushes these proteins across the peroxisomal membrane using as driving force the strong protein-protein interactions that it establishes with components of the peroxisomal membrane docking/translocation module (DTM). In recent years, much has been learned on how this transport system is reset and kept fine-tuned. Notably, this involves covalent modification of PEX5 with ubiquitin. Two types of PEX5 ubiquitination have been characterized: monoubiquitination at a conserved cysteine, a mandatory event for the extraction of PEX5 from the DTM; and polyubiquitination, probably the result of a quality control mechanism aiming at clearing the DTM from entangled PEX5 molecules. Monoubiquitination of PEX5 is transient in nature and the factors that reverse this modification have recently been identified.
