Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FBXW5 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the F-box protein family, members of which are characterized by an approximately 40 amino acid motif, the F-box. The F-box proteins constitute one of the four subunits of ubiquitin protein ligase complex called SCFs (SKP1-cullin-F-box), which function in phosphorylation-dependent ubiquitination. The F-box proteins are divided into three 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 contains WD-40 domains, in addition to an F-box motif, so it belongs to the Fbw class. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene, however, they were found to be nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) candidates, hence not represented.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FBXW5 Gene
Substrate recognition component of both SCF (SKP1-CUL1-F-box protein) and DCX (DDB1-CUL4-X-box) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complexes. Substrate recognition component of the SCF(FBXW5) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex which mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of SASS6 during S phase, leading to prevent centriole reduplication. The SCF(FBXW5) complex also mediates ubiquitination and degradation of actin-regulator EPS8 during G2 phase, leading to the transient degradation of EPS8 and subsequent cell shape changes required to allow mitotic progression. Substrate-specific adapter of the DCX(FBXW5) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex which mediates the polyubiquitination and subsequent degradation of TSC2. May also act as a negative regulator of MAP3K7/TAK1 signaling in the interleukin-1B (IL1B) signaling pathway.
