AbstractLafora disease (LD, OMIM254780, ORPHA501) is a rare neurodegenerative form of epilepsy related to mutations in two proteins: laforin, a dual specificity phosphatase, and malin, an E3-ubiquitin ligase. Both proteins form a functional complex, where laforin recruits specific substrates to be ubiquitinated by malin. However, little is known about the mechanism driving malin-laforin mediated ubiquitination of its substrates. In this work we present evidence indicating that the malin-laforin complex interacts physically and functionally with the ubiquitin conjugating enzyme E2-N (UBE2N). This binding determines the topology of the chains that the complex is able to promote in the corresponding substrates (mainly K63-linked polyubiquitin chains). In addition, we demonstrate that the malin-laforin complex interacts with the selective autophagy adaptor sequestosome-1 (p62). Binding of p62 to the malin-laforin complex allows its recognition by LC3, a component of the autophagosomal membrane. In addition, p62 enhances the ubiquitinating activity of the malin-laforin E3-ubiquitin ligase complex. These data enrich our knowledge on the mechanism of action of the malin-laforin complex as an E3-ubiquitin ligase and reinforces the role of this complex in targeting substrates towards the autophagy pathway.
