Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ATE1 Gene
This gene encodes an arginyltransferase, an enzyme that is involved in posttranslational conjugation of arginine to N-terminal aspartate or glutamate residues. Conjugation of arginine to the N-terminal aspartate or glutamate targets proteins for ubiquitin-dependent degradation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

GeneCards Summary for ATE1 Gene
ATE1 (Arginyltransferase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include arginyltransferase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ATE1 Gene
Involved in the post-translational conjugation of arginine to the N-terminal aspartate or glutamate of a protein. This arginylation is required for degradation of the protein via the ubiquitin pathway. Does not arginylate cysteine residues (By similarity).
