Abstract


Using the yeast two-hybrid system, we have identified a human ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (hE2-25K) as a protein that interacts with the gene product for Huntington disease (HD) (Huntingtin). This protein has complete amino acid identity with the bovine E2-25K protein and has striking similarity to the UBC-1, -4 and -5 enzymes of Saccharomyces cerevisiae. This protein is highly expressed in brain and a slightly larger protein recognized by an anti-E2-25K polyclonal antibody is selectively expressed in brain regions affected in HD. The huntingtin-E2-25K interaction is not obviously modulated by CAG length. We also demonstrate that huntingtin is ubiquitinated. These findings have implications for the regulated catabolism of the gene product for HD.
