Ronald Thomas Hay - Selected publications#

My most significant achievement was to establish conjugation with Small Ubiquitin-like Modifier (SUMO) as an important regulatory mechanism in eukaryotes. My lab (and the Blobel lab) were first to demonstrate that the enzyme involved in SUMO conjugation was Ubc9. We demonstrated that the acceptor lysine for SUMO modification in IkBa was also the acceptor
for ubiquitylation. This established the paradigm of SUMO and ubiquitin modifying the same lysine residue, allowing proteins to switch between different modes of activity and regulating many biological processes. (Desterro, Rodriguez, Hay. SUMO-1 modification of IkBa inhibits NF-kB activation. Mol Cell. 1998 2:233-9. 745 citations). My work has been cited 14,008 times and I have an h-index of 62 and an i10-index of 135
