Core component of multiple cullin-RING-based E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complexes which mediate the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins. The functional specificity of the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex depends on the variable substrate recognition subunit. CUL4B may act within the complex as a scaffold protein, contributing to catalysis through positioning of the substrate and the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme. Plays a role as part of the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex in polyubiquitination of CDT1, histone H2A, histone H3 and histone H4 in response to radiation-induced DNA damage. Targeted to UV damaged chromatin by DDB2 and may be important for DNA repair and DNA replication. Required for ubiquitination of cyclin E, and consequently, normal G1 cell cycle progression. Regulates the mammalian target-of-rapamycin (mTOR) pathway involved in control of cell growth, size and metabolism. Specific CUL4B regulation of the mTORC1-mediated pathway is dependent upon 26S proteasome function and requires interaction between CUL4B and MLST8.
Protein modification; protein ubiquitination.
Involvement in disease
Defects in CUL4B are the cause of mental retardation syndromic X-linked Cabezas type (MRXC) [MIM:300354]; also known as mental retardation syndromic X-linked type 15. A syndromic form of X-linked mental retardation characterized by severe intellectual deficit associated with short stature, craniofacial dysmorphism, small testes, muscle wasting in lower legs, kyphosis, joint hyperextensibility, pes cavus, small feet, and abnormalities of the toes. Additional neurologic manifestations include speech delay and impairment, tremor, seizures, gait ataxia, hyperactivity and decreased attention span.
Belongs to the cullin family.
Neddylated. Deneddylated via its interaction with the COP9 signalosome (CSN) complex.
