GeneCards Summary for CUL2 Gene

CUL2 (Cullin 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are TGF-Beta Pathway and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin protein ligase binding. An important paralog of this gene is CUL1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CUL2 Gene

  • Core component of multiple cullin-RING-based ECS (ElonginB/C-CUL2/5-SOCS-box protein) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complexes, which mediate the ubiquitination of target proteins. May serve as a rigid scaffold in the complex and may contribute to catalysis through positioning of the substrate and the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme. The E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity of the complex is dependent on the neddylation of the cullin subunit and is inhibited by the association of the deneddylated cullin subunit with TIP120A/CAND1 (By similarity). The functional specificity of the ECS complex depends on the substrate recognition component. ECS(VHL) mediates the ubiquitination of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF).
