SUMO and cellular cytoskeletal partners

In the August 2014 edition of their newsletter, Cytoskeleton Inc. bring us an overview of SUMO activation and deconjugation processes, together with their role on cytoskeletal proteins (actin, tubulin…).

For the record, SUMO (for Small Ubiquitin-like Modifiers) is a family of small proteins that is covalently attached to (or detached from) cellular proteins. Such post-translational modification (called SUMOylation) modulates cellular architecture and numerous activities, including response to stress, progression through the cell cycle, transport, mobility…
