Chen ZJ, et al. (1996) Site-specific phosphorylation of IkappaBalpha by a novel ubiquitination-dependent protein kinase activity. Cell 84(6):853-62
Abstract: Signal-induced activation of the transcription factor NF-kappaB requires specific phosphorylation of the inhibitor IkappaBalpha and its subsequent proteolytic degradation. Phosphorylation of serine residues 32 and 36 targets IkappaBalpha to the ubiquitin (Ub)-proteasome pathway. Here we report the identification of a large, multisubunit kinase (molecular mass approximately 700 kDa) that phosphorylates IkappaBalpha at S32 and S36. Remarkably, the activity of this kinase requires the Ub-activating enzyme (E1), a specific Ub carrier protein (E2) of the Ubc4/Ubc5 family, and Ub. We also show that a ubiquitination event in the kinase complex is a prerequisite for specific phosphorylation of IkappaBalpha. Thus, ubiquitination serves a novel regulatory function that does not involve proteolysis.
