Physicochemical compatibility

Acetylation of S-phase kinase-associated protein 2 (SKP2) in its NLS inhibits binding to the Importin subunit alpha-6 (KPNA5). p300 acetylates SKP2 at K68 and K71 within SKP2's nuclear localisation signal, this stabilises SKP2 from Fizzy-related protein homolog (FZR1)-mediated degradation and facilitates its translocation into the cytoplasm. This process can be reversed by NAD-dependent protein deacetylase sirtuin-3, mitochondrial (SIRT3) that specifically deacetylates SKP2 facilitating its translocation back into the nucleus. In the cytosol, SKP2 acts to promote Cadherin-1 (CDH1) degradation in a Casein Kinase I dependent manner to promote cell migration. Casein kinase I recognises the MOD_CK1_1 motif in CDH1 phosphorylating at residues Ser840 and Ser842.
