    Sterol homeostasis requires regulated degradation of squalene monooxygenase by the ubiquitin ligase Doa10/Teb4

    Ombretta Foresti et al.
    Parallel branches of the ERAD pathway regulate sterol synthesis at multiple steps via feedback inhibition.

    A protein quality control pathway at the mitochondrial outer membrane

    Meredith B Metzger et al.
    Temperature-sensitive mitochondrial outer membrane proteins used as novel quality control substrates reveal a unique mitochondria-associated degradation pathway consisting of both cytosolic and mitochondrial ubiquitin-proteasome system machinery.

    Mfn2 ubiquitination by PINK1/parkin gates the p97-dependent release of ER from mitochondria to drive mitophagy

    Gian-Luca McLelland et al.
    A crucial step during the mitophagy cascade involves the disassembly of connections between mitochondria and the endoplasmic reticulum via the retrotranslocation of Mfn2 tethering complexes by the Parkinson's disease genes PARKIN and PINK1, as well as the ATPase VCP/p97.

    A conformational switch regulates the ubiquitin ligase HUWE1

    Bodo Sander et al.
    The cancer-associated human ubiquitin ligase HUWE1 can adopt an auto-inhibited dimeric state, whose occupancy is regulated by competing intra- and intermolecular interactions of the dimerization region and by the tumor suppressor p14ARF.

    A SPOPL/Cullin-3 ubiquitin ligase complex regulates endocytic trafficking by targeting EPS15 at endosomes

    Michaela Gschweitl et al.
    The poorly characterized BTB-protein SPOPL is required to maintain the function of the late endosomal system and the endocytic adaptor EPS15 is therein targeted by the SPOPL/Cullin-3 ubiquitin ligase complex for degradation.

    The linear ubiquitin chain assembly complex (LUBAC) generates heterotypic ubiquitin chains

    Alan Rodriguez Carvajal et al.
    The E3 ubiquitin ligase complex linear ubiquitin chain assembly complex (LUBAC) forms a branched chain on linear ubiquitin chains depending on the RING-in-between-RING-type E3 ligase heme-oxidized IRP2 ubiquitin ligase 1 (HOIL-1L).

    Doa10 is a membrane protein retrotranslocase in ER-associated protein degradation

    Claudia C Schmidt et al.
    Doa10, a membrane-embedded ubiquitin ligase, facilitates the removal of membrane proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum and cooperates with the Cdc48 ATPase in this process.

    LIPG signaling promotes tumor initiation and metastasis of human basal-like triple-negative breast cancer

    Pang-Kuo Lo et al.
    LIPG, a lipoprotein lipase, executes its oncogenic function in human basal-like triple-negative breast cancer through its functional involvement in DTX3L-ISG15 signaling, an interferon-related pathway that regulates protein functionality by ISGylation.
