Abstract: The Hdmx gene product is related to the Hdm2 oncoprotein, both of which interact with and regulate p53 stability and function. Like Hdm2, Hdmx is able to inhibit p53 transactivation; however, at variance with Hdm2, which promotes ubiquitination, nuclear export, and degradation of p53, Hdmx increases p53 stability. We report here M that overexpressed Hdmx is cytoplasmic and Hdm2 recruits Hdmx into the nucleus and (ii) that nuclear Hdmx blocks Hdm2-mediated nuclear export of p53 and down-regulates p53-dependent transcription. Furthermore we showed that Hdmx inhibits Hdm2-mediated p53 ubiquitination. It appears, therefore, that a regulatory loop exists in which Hdm2 regulates the intracellular localization of Hdmx, and nuclear Hdmx regulates several functions of Hdm2 (ubiquitin ligase activity and p53 nuclear export).
