Our previous study showed that knockdown the endogenous expression of DCUN1D3 (also called SCCRO3 or DCNL3) blocked the S phase progression after UV irradiation. Here, we show that the silence of DCUN1D3 can increase the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27 protein levels after UV irradiation. Through Co-immunoprecipitation experiments, we found that DCUN1D3 bound to CAND1. And DCUN1D3 knockdown synergized with CAND1 over-expression in arresting the S phase. Given the CAND1’s established role in Cullin-1 neddylation, we found Cullin-1 was less neddylated in DCUN1D3 deficient cells. So the silence of DCUN1D3 can inhibit the formation of SCFSKP2 complex by reducing Cullin-1 neddylation. Given that p27 is the primary target of SCFSKP2 complex, the cells lost DCUN1D3 showed a remarkable accumulation of p27 to cause S phase block.
