Uniprot: Essential component of the E3 ubiquitin ligase complex SCF (SKP1-CUL1-F-box protein) ubiquitin ligase complex, which mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins like phosphorylated SIC1. Participates in the attachment of chromosomes to the spindle. Acts as a regulatory component of the centromere DNA-binding protein complex CBF3, which is essential for chromosome segregation and movement of centromeres along microtubules. CBF3 is required for the recruitment of other kinetochore complexes to CEN DNA. It plays a role in the attachment of chromosomes to the spindle and binds selectively to a highly conserved DNA sequence called CDEIII, found in centromeres and in several promoters. The association of CBF3C with CBF3D and SGT1 is required for CBF3C activation and CBF3 assembly. SKP1/CBF3D could retrieve cyclins or cyclin-CDK-like proteins into the kinetochore thus providing cell cycle-regulated kinetochore activity. Involved in the regulation of methionine biosynthesis genes. Facilitates association of CDC53 with CDC4 and of ROY1 with YPT52. more..
