F-box protein FBXW8 is known to interact with scaffolding protein Cullin1 and Cullin7 to form SCF (SKP1, Cullin and F-box protein) complex. However, detail understanding about the importance of both Cullins for SCF-FBXW8 complex formation as well as its ubiquitin ligase activity remains elusive. Here, we show that, through in vitro and in vivo studies, Cullin1 and Cullin7 increase each other's binding to FBXW8 synergistically. Interestingly, absence of either Cullin results in abrogation of binding of other Cullin to FBXW8. Binding of SKP1 to FBXW8 also increases in the presence of both the Cullins. Thus, SKP1, Cullin1 and Cullin7 are essential to form Cullin1-SKP1-FBXW8-Cullin7 functional ubiquitin ligase complex. Further, using computational, mutational and biochemical analysis, we found that Cullin1 binds to N-terminus of FBXW8 through SKP1 while Cullin7 associates with C-terminus of FBXW8 to form Cullin1-SKP1-FBXW8-Cullin7 functional complex in a cooperative manner. Results showed that Cullin1-SKP1-FBXW8-Cullin7 complex plays a key role in maintaining the basal level expression of β-TrCP1. Moreover, Cullin1-SKP1-FBXW8-Cullin7 complex promotes cell migration by activating β-catenin via directing proteasomal degradation of β-TrCP1. Overall, our study reveals the intriguing molecular mechanism of assembly of SKP1, Cullin1, Cullin7 and FBXW8 to form Cullin1-SKP1-FBXW8-Cullin7 functional complex that control the function of β-TrCP1.
