Bmi1 is a polycomb group protein and regulator that stabilizes the ubiquitination complex PRC1 in the nucleus with no evidently direct link to the NF-κB pathway. In this study, we report a novel function of Bmi1: its regulation of IκBα ubiquitination in the cytoplasm. A deficiency of Bmi1 inhibited NF-κB-mediated gene expression in vitro and a NF-κB-mediated mouse model of arthritis in vivo. Mechanistic analysis showed that Bmi1 associated with the SCF ubiquitination complex via its N terminus and with phosphorylation by an IKKα/β-dependent pathway, leading to the ubiquitination of IκBα. These effects on NF-κB-related inflammation suggest Bmi1 in the SCF complex is a potential therapeutic target for various diseases and disorders, including autoimmune diseases.
