CDT2 (human, 730 aa, 79.5 kDa) is substrate-specific adapter of a DCX (DDB1-CUL4-X-box) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex required for cell cycle control, DNA damage response and translesion DNA synthesis. The DCX(DTL) complex, alsonamed CRL4(CDT2) complex, mediates the polyubiquitination and subsequent degradation of CDT1 and CDKN1A/p21(CIP1). CDT1 degradation in response to DNA damage is necessary to ensure proper cell cycle regulation of DNA replication. CDKN1A/p21(CIP1) degradation during S phase or following UV irradiation is essential to control replication licensing. Most substrates require their interaction with PCNA for their polyubiquitination: substrates interact with PCNA via their PIP-box, and those containingthe 'K+4' motif in the PIP box, recruit the DCX(DTL) complex, leading to their degradation. In undamaged proliferating cells, the DCX(DTL) complex also promotes the 'Lys-164' monoubiquitination of PCNA, thereby being involved in PCNA-dependent translesion DNA synthesis. CDT2 is activated by checkpoint kinase ATR following DNA damage.

Identification of Cdt2 protein in whole cell extract of HeLa cells by western blotting. With cell extract of 20 µg protein, endogenous level of Cdt2 protein was detected with the antibody at 1/2,000 dilution. Secondary antibody was HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG antibody at 1/20,000.


Inhibition of Cdt2 protein synthesis by Cdt2 siRNA introduced into HeLa cells. siCont is control siRNA unrelated to Cdt2. siCdt2 is Cdt2 siRNA. Cdt2 is phosphorylated after UV irradiation as shown by the band shift-up in irradiated sample (UV +).


Immunofluorescence staining of Cdt2 protein in growing Hela cells with the antibody. Asynchroneously growing HeLa cells were stained with Hoechst 33258 for DNA and with the antibody for Cdt2 protein. The cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde for 10 min, permeabilized in 0.25% (v/v) Triton X-100 in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS), and reacted with the primary antibody. Alexa-592 conjgated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as secondary antibody.Cdt2 protein is localized in nuclei at all cell stages.
