    ..We concluded that USP8 deubiquitinates Sec31A and inhibits the formation of large COPII carriers, thereby suppressing collagen IV secretion. ..

    ..The interaction with Ankrd13 was abrogated in IMBPFD-associated VCP mutants. Collectively, our results suggest that Ankrd13 proteins cooperate with VCP to regulate the lysosomal trafficking of ubiquitinated Cav-1. ..

    ..We suggest that Nrk suppresses the excessive proliferation of mammary epithelial cells during pregnancy, and the impairment of this regulatory system leads to frequent occurrence of breast tumor in Nrk mutant mice. ..

    ..These results indicate that betaIV-spectrin and ankyrin-G mutually stabilize the membrane protein cluster and the linked membrane cytoskeleton at AIS and NR. ..
