DNA-damage-inducible 1 protein (Ddi1) contains an uncharacteristic ubiquitin-like domain that binds ubiquitin

Abstract : Ddi1 belongs to a family of shuttle proteins targeting polyubiquitinated substrates for proteasomal degradation. Unlike the other proteasomal shuttles, Rad23 and Dsk2, Ddi1 remains an enigma: its function is not fully understood and structural properties are poorly characterized. We determined the structure and binding properties of the ubiquitin-like (UBL) and ubiquitin-associated (UBA) domains of Ddi1 from Saccharomyces cerevisiae. We found that while Ddi1UBA forms a characteristic UBA: ubiquitin complex, Ddi1UBL has entirely uncharacteristic binding preferences. Despite having a ubiquitin-like fold, Ddi1UBL does not interact with typical UBL receptors but unexpectedly binds ubiquitin, forming a unique interface mediated by hydrophobic contacts and by salt bridges between oppositely charged residues of Ddi1UBL and ubiquitin. In stark contrast to ubiquitin and other UBLs, the beta-sheet surface of Ddi1UBL is negatively charged and therefore is recognized in a completely different way. The dual functionality of Ddi1UBL, capable of binding both ubiquitin and proteasome, suggests an intriguing mechanism for Ddi1 as a proteasomal shuttle.
