Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FBXO5 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the F-box protein family which is characterized by an approximately 40 amino acid motif, the F-box. The F-box proteins constitute one of the four subunits of the ubiquitin protein ligase complex called SCFs (SKP1-cullin-F-box), which function in phosphorylation-dependent ubiquitination. The F-box proteins are divided into 3 classes: Fbws containing WD-40 domains, Fbls containing leucine-rich repeats, and Fbxs containing either different protein-protein interaction modules or no recognizable motifs. The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the Fbxs class. This protein is similar to xenopus early mitotic inhibitor-1 (Emi1), which is a mitotic regulator that interacts with Cdc20 and inhibits the anaphase promoting complex. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]
GeneCards Summary for FBXO5 Gene
FBXO5 (F-Box Protein 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are PLK1 signaling events and Oocyte meiosis. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding. An important paralog of this gene is FBXO43.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FBXO5 Gene
Regulates progression through early mitosis by inhibiting the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC). Binds to the APC activators CDC20 and FZR1/CDH1 to prevent APC activation. Can also bind directly to the APC to inhibit substrate-binding.
