  • FunctionSubstrate-specific adapter of a DCX (DDB1-CUL4-X-box) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex required for cell cycle control, DNA damage response and translesion DNA synthesis. The DCX(DTL) complex, also named CRL4(CDT2) complex, mediates the polyubiquitination and subsequent degradation of CDT1 and CDKN1A/p21(CIP1). CDT1 degradation in response to DNA damage is necessary to ensure proper cell cycle regulation of DNA replication. CDKN1A/p21(CIP1) degradation during S phase or following UV irradiation is essential to control replication licensing. Most substrates require their interaction with PCNA for their polyubiquitination: substrates interact with PCNA via their PIP-box, and those containing the 'K+4' motif in the PIP box, recruit the DCX(DTL) complex, leading to their degradation. In undamaged proliferating cells, the DCX(DTL) complex also promotes the 'Lys-164' monoubiquitination of PCNA, thereby being involved in PCNA-dependent translesion DNA synthesis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in placenta and testis, very low expression seen in skeletal muscle. Detected in all hematopoietic tissues examined, with highest expression in thymus and bone marrow. A low level detected in the spleen and lymph node, and barely detectable level in the peripheral leukocytes. RA treatment down-regulated the expression in NT2 cell.
  • PathwayProtein modification; protein ubiquitination.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the WD repeat cdt2 family.
    Contains 7 WD repeats.
  • Developmental stageExpressed in all fetal tissues examined, included brain, lung, liver, and kidney.
  • Post-translational
    Ubiquitinated by the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C).
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus. Nucleus membrane. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Nuclear matrix-associated protein. Translocates from the interphase nucleus to the metaphase cytoplasm during mitosis.
