Dataset Summary
TitleSmall molecule-induced polymerization triggers degradation of BCL6
DescriptionMost small-molecule protein degraders act as interface stabilizers ‘molecular glues’ between E3 ubiquitin ligases and target proteins to induce ternary complex formation and ubiquitin-dependent target protein degradation. Here we report polymerization as a novel mechanism for small molecule-induced degradation. Using functional screens in combination with molecular and biochemical assays, we found that BI-3802, which binds to the BTB domain of the oncogenic transcription factor BCL6, induces polymerization of BCL6 into regular helical structures in vitro and foci in vivo. Polymerization precedes degradation by the SIAH1 E3 ubiquitin ligase. Hereby, a VxP amino acid motif on BCL6, distal from the drug-binding BTB domain, is required for SIAH1 binding, ubiquitination and BI-3802-induced degradation. Our findings propose that small molecule-induced polymerization is not only a new modality for targeted protein degradation, but also provides synthetic biology with a tool for tunable protein polymerization and opens new avenues for future drug design.
