URB (upregulated in BRS-3 deficient mice) is a 150 kDa, secreted glycoprotein that belongs to the sushi-repeat-containing protein superfamily (1, 2). Sushi repeats, otherwise known as short consensus repeats (SCRs), are 60 amino acid (aa) sequences usually involved in protein-protein interaction. They are characterized by the presence of four Cys, two Pro, one Gly and one Trp (3). Human URB is synthesized as a 950 aa precursor that contains a 21 aa signal sequence and a 929 aa mature region. The mature molecule contains three extended sushi/SCR domains of approximately 140 aa each. They bear resemblance to the fifth sushi-repeat in human SPRX (4). The three lie between aa 141‑281, 615‑760, and 771‑913, respectively. Between the first and second SCR lie two amino acid-rich regions, a Thr-rich domain (aa 347‑404), and a Lys-rich domain (aa 487‑588). Three potential N-linked glycosylation sites exist in the last two SCR’s, while six potential bipartite nuclear localization signals (NLS) occur between aa 420‑780. There are two potential alternate splice forms for human URB. One is 594 aa in length, and shows a simple truncation at Ser594. This effectively removes the second and third SCRs and two bipartite NLS (5). The second is 553 aa in length and shows a simple truncation after Lys553. This eliminates four bipartite NLSs, the second and third SCRs, and part of the Lys-rich domain (6). Full-length human URB is 83%, 84% and 87% aa identical to rat, mouse and bovine URB, respectively. URB is found in chondrocytes and appears to be downregulated upon CFU-Fibroblast differentiation (1). Thus, it may play a role in skeletogenesis.
