Abstract: The ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme Cdc34 was recently shown to be phosphorylated by CK2 on the C-terminal tail. Here we present novel findings indicating that in budding yeast CK2 phosphorylates Cdc34 within the N-terminal catalytic domain. Specifically, we show, by direct mass spectrometry analysis, that Cdc34 is phosphorylated in vitro and in vivo by CK2 on Ser130 and Ser167, and that the phosphoserines 130 and 167 are not present after CK2 inactivation in a cka1 Delta cka2-8(ts) strain. CK2 phosphorylation of Ser130 and Ser167 strongly stimulates Cdc34 ubiquitin charging in vitro. The Cdc34(S130AS167A) mutant shows a basal ubiquitin charging activity which is indistinguishable from that of wild type but is not activated by CK2 phosphorylation and its expression fails to complement a cdc34-2(ts) yeast strain, supporting a model in which activation of Cdc34 involves CK2-mediated phosphorylation of its catalytic domain.
