Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FBXW2 Gene
F-box proteins are an expanding family of eukaryotic proteins characterized by an approximately 40 amino acid motif, the F box. Some F-box proteins have been shown to be critical for the ubiquitin-mediated degradation of cellular regulatory proteins. In fact, F-box proteins are one of the four subunits of ubiquitin protein ligases, called SCFs. SCF ligases bring ubiquitin conjugating enzymes to substrates that are specifically recruited by the different F-box proteins. Mammalian F-box proteins are classified into three groups based on the presence of either WD-40 repeats, leucine-rich repeats, or the presence or absence of other protein-protein interacting domains. This gene encodes the second identified member of the F-box gene family and contains multiple WD-40 repeats. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for FBXW2 Gene
FBXW2 (F-Box And WD Repeat Domain Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FBXW2 include Intestinal Botulism and Wound Botulism. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and Chaperonin-mediated protein folding. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PLRG1.
