Found in Skp1 protein family
SMART accession number:SM00512
Description: Family of Skp1 (kinetochore protein required for cell cycle progression) and elongin C (subunit of RNA polymerase II transcription factor SIII) homologues.
Interpro abstract (IPR001232):

This entry includes SKP1 and SKP1-like protein, elongin-C (also known as TCEB1). SKP1 is part of the E3 ubiquitin ligase complexes. Elongin-C has dual functions, works as a component of RNA polymerase II (Pol II) transcription elongation factor and as the substrate recognition subunit of a Cullin-RING E3 ubiquitin ligase [ (PUBMED:25878247) ].

Mammlian S-phase kinase-associated protein 1 (SKP1) is an essential component of the SCF (SKP1-CUL1-F-box protein) ubiquitin ligase complex, which mediates the ubiquitination of proteins involved in cell cycle progression, signal transduction and transcription [ (PUBMED:20181953) ]. It is also part of the ubiquitin E3 ligase complex (Skp1-Pam-Fbxo45) that controls the core epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition-inducing transcription factors [ (PUBMED:25460509) ]. Budding yeast Skp1 is a kinetochore protein found in several complexes, including the SCF ubiquitin ligase complex, the CBF3 complex that binds centromeric DNA [ (PUBMED:8670864) ], and the RAVE complex that regulates assembly of the V-ATPase [ (PUBMED:11283612) ].

Elongin-C is a general transcription elongation factor that increases the RNA polymerase II transcription elongation past template-encoded arresting sites [ (PUBMED:15590694) ]. It forms a complex with SIII regulatory subunits B, which serves as an adapter protein in the proteasomal degradation of target proteins via different E3 ubiquitin ligase complexes [ (PUBMED:15590694) ]. Elongin-C forms a complex with Cul3 that polyubiquitylates monoubiquitylated RNA polymerase II to trigger its proteolysis [ (PUBMED:17296727) ].
