  • Relevance
    Function: SNAIL is involved in the epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and formation and maintenance of embryonic mesoderm (By similarity). Binds to 3 E-boxes of the E-cadherin gene promoter and represses its transcription. SLUG is a transcriptional repressor, involved in the generation and migration of neural crest cells. PTM: SNAIL is phosphorylated by GSK3B. Once phosphorylated, it becomes a target for BTRC ubiquitination. Ubiquitinated on Lys-98, Lys-137 and Lys-146 by FBXL14 and BTRC leading to degradation. BTRC-triggered ubiquitination requires previous GSK3B-mediated SNAI1 phosphorylation. Similarity: Both SNAIL and SLUG belong to the snail C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family. Tissue specificity: SNAIL is expressed in a variety of tissues with the highest expression in kidney. Expressed in mesenchymal and epithelial cell lines. SLUG is expressed in placenta and adult heart, pancreas, liver, kidney and skeletal muscle.
  • Cellular localization
    Slug is generally nuclear, while Snail is known to be both cytoplasmic and nuclear. Once phosphorylated (probably on Ser-107, Ser-111, Ser-115 and Ser-119) snail is exported from the nucleus to the cytoplasm where subsequent phosphorylation of the destruction motif and ubiquitination involving BTRC occurs.
