BTG/Tob family proteins, which are characterized by similarities in their N-terminal BTG/Tob homology domains, control cell growth negatively. Among the BTG/Tob family members, BTG2/TIS21/PC3 proteins have been reported to have short lives and to be degraded by the proteasome. However, the mechanisms regulating the stabilities of other BTG/Tob family proteins have not yet been clarified. Here, we report that BTG1, Tob, and Tob2 proteins, as well as BTG2 protein, are degraded by the ubiquitin-proteasome system; the degradation of Tob protein in HeLa cells and the degradation of BTG1, BTG2, Tob and Tob2 proteins transiently expressed in HEK293 cells were inhibited by treatments with proteasome-specific inhibitors. Co-expression of BTG1, BTG2, Tob, or Tob2 protein with ubiquitin in HEK293 cells revealed specific multiubiquitination of each of the four proteins. Although the full-length and N-terminal truncated forms of BTG1, BTG2, Tob, and Tob2 proteins were unstable, the respective C-terminal truncated forms were found to be almost stable, suggesting that the C-terminal regions control the stabilities of BTG1, BTG2, Tob, and Tob2 proteins. In addition, it was found that the respective C-terminal regions confer instability on green fluorescent protein, a normally stable protein. Thus, it can be concluded that the C-terminal regions are necessary and sufficient to control the stabilities of BTG1, BTG2, Tob, and Tob2 proteins.
