FANCD2 and FANCI, the components of the ID2 complex, are monoubiquitinated at DNA interstrand crosslinks (ICL-DNA) by the coordinated action of the E2 ubiquitin ligase UBE2T and the E3 ubiquitin ligase FANCL (Machida et al. 2006, Alpi et al. 2007, Sims et al. 2007, Smogorzewska et al. 2007, Longerich et al. 2009, Sato et al. 2012, Hodson et al. 2014). FANCL achieves the maximal catalytic activity as part of the ICL-DNA-bound FA core complex, and requires the presence of at least FANCB and FAAP100 subunits of the FA core complex to monoubiquitinate the ID2 complex (Rajendra et al. 2014, Longerich et al. 2014). FANCD2 is monoubiquitinated on lysine residue K561, while FANCI is monoubiquitinated on lysine residue K523 (Alpi et al. 2008, Longerich et al. 2014). In the absence of FANCD2, a DNA-bound FANCI can be monoubiquitinated in a FANCL-independent manner (Longerich et al. 2014).

UBE2T is also monoubiqutinated by FANCL on lysine residues K91 and K182 during the process of ID2 monoubiquitination. Monoubiquitination of UBE2T may serve as a self-inactivating mechanism that negatively regulates the Fanconi anemia pathway (Machida et al. 2006).

FANCD2 monoubiquitination promotes stability of the ID2 complex and its retention at ICL-DNA, and enables recruitment of additional proteins that participate in the repair of ICL-DNA (Garcia-Higuera et al. 2001, Smogorzewska et al. 2007, Alpi et al. 2008, Joo et al. 2011).
