Abstract

B-Myb, a highly conserved member of the Myb oncoprotein family, is a 110 kDa sequence-specific DNA binding protein expressed in virtually all proliferating cells. B-myb expression reaches its maximum at the G1/S phase boundary and during the S phase of the cell cycle. We have previously shown that B-Myb activity is cell cycle regulated and it is controlled by the antagonistic effects of cyclin D1 and A. Here we show that ectopic expression of cyclin A causes a pronounced reduction of B-Myb protein level. We provide evidence that in addition to triggering B-Myb activity an important effect of cyclin A is to facilitate multiple ubiquitination of B-Myb. The C-terminal domain of B-Myb is of key importance in mediating this effect of cyclin A. Contrary to full-length B-Myb, a C-terminal deletion mutant displays activity irrespective of cyclin A expression, does not undergo ubiquitination, and its half-life is not affected by cyclin A. Ectopic expression of either Cdc34 or the F-box protein p45Skp2, respectively the E2 and E3 components of a ubiquitination pathway that regulates the G1/S transition, accelerates degradation of B-Myb. We show that B-Myb physically and functionally interacts with components of the Cdc34-SCFp45Skp2 ubiquitin pathway and propose that B-Myb degradation may be required for controlling the correct alternation of events during progression through the cell division cycle.
