NEDD8-activating Enzyme

NEDD8-activating Enzyme (NAE) is an essential component of the NEDD8 conjugation pathway that controls the activity of the cullin-RING subtype of ubiquitin ligases, thereby regulating the turnover of a subset of proteins upstream of the proteasome. Substrates of cullin-RING ligases have important roles in cellular processes associated with cancer cell growth and survival pathways.

NEDD8 (neural precursor cell expressed developmentally downregulated protein 8) is the ubiquitin-like protein most homologous to ubiquitin. The covalent binding of NEDD8 to substrate proteins is called “neddylation”, and includes the following steps: mature NEDD8 is activated by NEDD8-activating enzyme E1 (NAE), transferred by NEDD8-conjugating enzyme E2, and conjugated to the substrate protein by a NEDD8-E3 ligase.

NAE is a critical regulator of the neddylation pathway. Inhibition of NAE can inhibit the activity of the cullin-RING ligases (CRLs) and result in accumulation of CRL substrate proteins.
