Uncovering critical roles for retrotransposon-derived proteins in Ubiquilin-2 biology

Dr. Lisa Sharkey
Department of Neurology at Michigan Medicine University of Michigan School of Medicine

Ubiquilin-2 is a protein that plays an essential role in regulating the cellular response to misfolded and damaged proteins. It is also involved in the degradation of proteins that are no longer needed by the cell. Mutations in Ubiquilin-2 are believed to be causal in Frontal Temporal Dementia and/or Huntington’s disease. Understanding its trafficking in cells, which can be facilitated by retrotransposon-derived proteins, is therefore important to understanding its biological function.
