Abstract

The glycine-alanine repeat (GAr) of the Epstein-Barr virus nuclear antigen-1 is a cis-acting transferable element that inhibits ubiquitin/proteasome-dependent proteolysis in vitro and in vivo. We have here examined the effect of a synthetic 20-mer GAr oligopeptide on the degradation of iodinated or biotin labeled lysozyme in a rabbit reticulocyte lysates in vitro assay. Micromolar concentrations of the GA-20 peptide inhibited the hydrolysis of lysozyme without significant effect on ubiquitination. Addition of the peptide did not inhibit the hydrolysis of fluorogenic substrate by purified proteasomes and did not affect the ubiquitination of lysozyme. An excess of the peptide failed to compete for binding of a synthetic tetra-ubiquitin complex to the S5a ubiquitin-binding subunit of the 19S regulator, confirming that the GAr does not block the access of ubiquitinated substrates to the proteasome. Our data suggest that the GAr may act by destabilizing the interaction of ubiquitinated substrates with the proteasome and promote the premature release of the substrate.
