Abstract

The human telomeric protein TRF1 negatively regulates telomere length by inhibiting the access of telomerase to telomeres. Here, we describe a novel function of NEDD8 ultimate buster-1 (NUB1) for regulating the levels of TRF1 at telomeres. NUB1 is a NEDD8-interacting protein, which down-regulates the NEDD8 conjugation system. We showed that NUB1 physically interacts with TRF1 and promotes its degradation by the proteasome in the absence of NEDD8 conjugation. We also demonstrated that TRF1 is conjugated to NEDD8, and that neddylated TRF1 is targeted to the proteasome for degradation in a NUB1-dependent manner. These data suggest that NUB1 participates in telomere maintenance by regulating the levels of TRF1 at telomeres through both NEDD8-dependent and NEDD8-independent pathways.
