Background: Smad ubiquitin regulatory factor 2 (Smurf2) is a HECT domain E3 ubiquitin ligase. It was initially identified as an inhibitor of TGF-β/BMP signaling by targeting R-Smads and TGF type I receptor for ubiquitination and degradation (1-3). Subsequent studies have revealed its role in neuronal and planar cell polarity, as well as in the senescence response and suppression of tumorigenesis (4-8). Smurf2 has a broad range of substrates including RUNX2, AMSH, Rap1B, and RNF11 (5,9-11). Smurf2 is widely expressed in various tissues. The C2 domain of Smurf2 inhibits its catalytic activity by interacting with the HECT domain (12). Research studies have shown that Smurf2 functions as a tumor suppressor by maintaining genomic stability through targeting RNF20 (13).

Background: The carboxy terminus of Hsc70-interacting protein (CHIP, STUB1) is a co-chaperone protein and functional E3 ubiquitin ligase that links the polypeptide binding activity of Hsp70 to the ubiquitin proteasome system (1). Cytoplasmic CHIP protein contains three 34-amino acid TPR (tetratricopeptide repeat) domains at its amino terminus and a carboxy-terminal U-box domain. CHIP interacts with the molecular chaperones Hsc70-Hsp70 and Hsp90 through its TPR domain, while E3 ubiquitin ligase activity is confined to the U-box domain (2,3). The binding of CHIP to Hsp70 can stall the folding of Hsp70 client proteins and concomitantly facilitate the U-box dependent ubiquitination of Hsp70-bound substrates (4-6). CHIP appears to play a central role in cell stress protection (7) and is responsible for the degradation of disease-related proteins that include cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (4), p53 (8), huntingtin and Ataxin-3 (9), Tau protein (10), and α-synuclein (11).
