WSB1 (WD repeat and SOCS box-containing 1), also known as SWIP1, is a 421 amino acid protein that contains one SOCS box domain and six WD repeats. Expressed as multiple alternatively spliced isoforms, WSB1 is thought to function as part of an SCF-like ECS (Elongin-Cullin-SOCS-box protein) E3 ubiquitin ligase complex that mediates the ubiquitination and proteasomal degradation of target proteins, such as DIO2. Overexpression of WSB1 is implicated in pancreatic cancer progression, suggesting a role for WSB1 in carcinogenesis.
