Characterization of the KCTD protein family: key factors in several biological processes
Contact person: Laura Zaccaro, lzaccarounina.it

Description ▼
The family of human proteins containing a potassium channel tetramerization domain (KCTD) includes 21 members that are implicated in very important biological processes. KCTD11/REN, the best-characterized member of the family to date, is a negative regulator of the Hedgehog pathway and plays an important role in the tumorigenesis of medulloblastoma, a severe and widespread solid cancer of the childhood. Very recently it has been shown that it is involved in the ubiquitination of HDAC1 by acting, in complex with Cullin3, as an E3 ubiquitin ligase (1). The molecular and structural characterization of KCTD11 has shown that this tetrameric protein is involved in giant macromolecular complexes with its biological partners (Cul3, Rbx1, E2) (2). The development of molecules that are able to interfere with the function of this protein will likely have a relevant impact in the definition of the molecular basis of tumorigenesis. In this scenario, we have recently developed peptides, derived from the Cl3 protein, that are able to bind KCTD11 and other members of this protein family (3). Current activities are focused on the optimization of these molecules and on the characterization of structure-function relations for other members of the KCTD family
