GeneCards Summary for DCUN1D3 Gene

DCUN1D3 (DCN1, Defective In Cullin Neddylation 1, Domain Containing 3) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is DCUN1D1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DCUN1D3 Gene

  • Antagonizes DCUN1D1-mediated CUL1 neddylation by sequestering CUL1 at the cell membrane (PubMed:25349211). When overexpressed in transformed cells, may promote mesenchymal to epithelial-like changes and inhibit colony formation in soft agar (PubMed:25349211).
