Ubiquitin Dynamics in Stem Cell Biology: Current Challenges and Perspectives

Abstract : Ubiquitination plays a central role in the regulation of stem cell self-renewal, propagation, and differentiation. In this review, the functions of ubiquitin dynamics in a myriad of cellular processes, acting along side the pluripotency network, to regulate embryonic stem cell identity are highlighted. The implication of deubiquitinases (DUBs) and E3 Ubiquitin (Ub) ligases in cellular functions beyond protein degradation is reported, including key functions in the regulation of mRNA stability, protein translation, and intra-cellular trafficking; and how it affects cell metabolism, the micro-environment, and chromatin organization is discussed. Finally, unsolved issues in the field are emphasized and will need to be tackled in order to fully understand the contribution of ubiquitin dynamics to stem cell self-renewal and differentiation.
