Abstract

Cullin–RING-type E3 ligases (CRLs) control a broad range of biological processes by ubiquitylating numerous cellular substrates. However, the role of CRL E3 ligases in chromatid cohesion is unknown. In this study, we identified a new CRL-type E3 ligase (designated as CRL7SMU1 complex) that has an essential role in the maintenance of chromatid cohesion. We demonstrate that SMU1, DDB1, CUL7 and RNF40 are integral components of this complex. SMU1, by acting as a substrate recognition module, binds to H2B and mediates monoubiquitylation at the lysine (K) residue K120 through CRL7SMU1 E3 ligase complex. Depletion of CRL7SMU1 leads to loss of H2B ubiquitylation at the SMC1a locus and, thus, subsequently compromised SMC1a expression in cells. Knockdown of CRL7SMU1 components or loss of H2B ubiquitylation leads to defective sister chromatid cohesion, which is rescued by restoration of SMC1a expression. Together, our results unveil an important role of CRL7SMU1 E3 ligase in promoting H2B ubiquitylation for maintenance of sister chromatid cohesion during mitosis.
