    ..Removal of one genomic copy of cdt-1 suppresses the cul-4 re-replication phenotype. We propose that CUL-4 prevents aberrant re-initiation of DNA replication, at least in part, by facilitating the degradation of CDT-1. ..

    ..We propose that the CUL-4/DDB-1 ubiquitin ligase is the principal E3 for regulating the extent of DNA replication in C. elegans. ..

    ..RBX-1 silencing also induces lethality during development of embryos and in adulthood. Thus, RBX1 E3 ligase is essential for the maintenance of mammalian genome integrity and the proper development and viability in C. elegans. ..

    ..Our work identifies a critical substrate selection module of CDC-48/p97 required for chromatin-associated protein degradation in both Caenorhabditis elegans and humans, which is relevant to oncogenesis and aging. ..
