Hip2, a ubiquitin conjugating enzyme, is involved in the suppression of cell death. The present study revealed that Hip2 regulates the stability of the apoptotic and cell cycle regulator cyclin B1. Hip2 was found to interact with cyclin B1 to promote its degradation through the ubiquitin proteasome pathway. As a result, Hip2 significantly blocked cell death induced by the cyclin B1 protein, suggesting that Hip2 is involved in the regulation of cyclin B1-mediated cell death.
SciCrunch® is a data sharing and display platform. Anyone can create a custom portal where they can select searchable subsets of hundreds of data sources, brand their web pages and create their community. SciCrunch® will push data updates automatically to all portals on a weekly basis. User communities can also add their own data to SciCrunch®, however this is not currently a free service.
