Sumoylation

Definition

Sumoylation is a post-translational modification process. It is analogous to ubiquitylation in terms of the reaction scheme and enzyme classes used, but rather than conjugation by ubiquitin, sumoylation involves addition of SUMOs (small ubiquitin-like modifiers). Sumoylation can affect a protein’s structure and subcellular localization.
