Sequestosome-1 - Q13501 (SQSTM_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Autophagy receptor required for selective macroautophagy (aggrephagy). Functions as a bridge between polyubiquitinated cargo and autophagosomes. Interacts directly with both the cargo to become degraded and an autophagy modifier of the MAP1 LC3 family (PubMed:16286508, PubMed:20168092, PubMed:24128730, PubMed:28404643, PubMed:22622177). Along with WDFY3, involved in the formation and autophagic degradation of cytoplasmic ubiquitin-containing inclusions (p62 bodies, ALIS/aggresome-like induced structures). Along with WDFY3, required to recruit ubiquitinated proteins to PML bodies in the nucleus (PubMed:24128730, PubMed:20168092). May regulate the activation of NFKB1 by TNF-alpha, nerve growth factor (NGF) and interleukin-1. May play a role in titin/TTN downstream signaling in muscle cells. May regulate signaling cascades through ubiquitination. Adapter that mediates the interaction between TRAF6 and CYLD (By similarity). May be involved in cell differentiation, apoptosis, immune response and regulation of K(+) channels. Involved in endosome organization by retaining vesicles in the perinuclear cloud: following ubiquitination by RNF26, attracts specific vesicle-associated adapters, forming a molecular bridge that restrains cognate vesicles in the perinuclear region and organizes the endosomal pathway for efficient cargo transport (PubMed:27368102). Promotes relocalization of 'Lys-63'-linked ubiquitinated STING1 to autophagosomes (PubMed:29496741). Acts as an activator of the NFE2L2/NRF2 pathway via interaction with KEAP1: interaction inactivates the BCR(KEAP1) complex, promoting nuclear accumulation of NFE2L2/NRF2 and subsequent expression of cytoprotective genes (PubMed:20452972, PubMed:28380357).

Subunit Structure
Homooligomer or heterooligomer; may form homotypic arrays. Dimerization interferes with ubiquitin binding. Interacts directly with PRKCI and PRKCZ (Probable). Forms ternary complexes with PRKCZ and KCNAB2 or PRKCZ and GABBR3. Also interacts with KCNAB1, GABRR1, GABRR2 and GABRR3. Forms an NGF-induced complex with IKBKB, PRKCI and TRAF6 (By similarity). Interacts with EBI3, LCK, RASA1, PRKCZ, PRKCI, NR2F2, NTRK1, NTRK2, NTRK3, NBR1, MAP2K5, TRIM13, TRIM55 and MAPKAPK5. Interacts with the proteasome subunits PSMD4 and PSMC2. Interacts with K63-polyubiquitinated MAPT/TAU. Interacts with IKBKB through PRKCZ and PRKCI. Interacts with NGFR through TRAF6 and bridges that complex to NTRK1. Forms a complex with MAP2K5 and PRKCZ or PRKCI. Component of a ternary complex with PAWR and PRKCZ. Upon TNF-alpha stimulation, interacts with RIPK1 probably bridging IKBKB to the TNF-R1 complex composed of TNF-R1/TNFRSF1A, TRADD and RIPK1. Forms a complex with JUB/Ajuba, PRKCZ and TRAF6. Interacts with TRAF6 and CYLD. Identified in a complex with TRAF6 and CYLD (By similarity). Identified in a heterotrimeric complex with ubiquitin and ZFAND5, where ZFAND5 and SQSTM1 both interact with the same ubiquitin molecule. Directly interacts with MAP1LC3A and MAP1LC3B, as well as with other MAP1 LC3 family members, including GABARAP, GABARAPL1 and GABARAPL2; these interactions are necessary for the recruitment MAP1 LC3 family members to inclusion bodies containing polyubiquitinated protein aggregates and for their degradation by autophagy. Interacts with FHOD3. Interacts with TRMI5. Interacts with SESN1 (PubMed:23274085). Interacts with SESN2 (PubMed:23274085, PubMed:25040165). Interacts with ULK1 (PubMed:25040165). Interacts with UBD (PubMed:25422469). Interacts with WDR81; the interaction is direct and regulates the interaction of SQSTM1 with ubiquitinated proteins (PubMed:28404643). Interacts with WDFY3; this interaction is required to recruit WDFY3 to cytoplasmic bodies and to PML bodies (PubMed:20168092). Interacts with TRIM23 (PubMed:28871090). Interacts with LRRC25 (PubMed:29288164). Interacts with TRIM50 (PubMed:22792322). Interacts with TRIM16 (PubMed:30143514). Interacts with STING1; leading to relocalization of STING1 to autophagosomes. Interacts (when phosphorylated at Ser-349) with KEAP1; the interaction is direct and inactivates the BCR(KEAP1) complex by sequestering KEAP1 in inclusion bodies, promoting its degradation (PubMed:20495340, PubMed:20452972).

Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
