Autodegradation of the E3 ubiquitin ligase COP1 (R-HSA-349425) [Homo sapiens]


COP1 is one of several E3 ubiquitin ligases responsible for the tight regulation of p53 abundance. Following DNA damage, COP1 dissociates from p53 and is inactivated by autodegradation via a pathway involving ATM phosphorylation of COP1 on Ser(387), autoubiquitination and proteasome mediated degradation. Destruction of COP1 results in abrogation of the ubiquitination and degradation of p53 (Dornan et al., 2006).
