This gen encodes a member of the HERC protein family. This protein stimulates guanine nucleotide exchange on ARF1 and Rab proteins. This protein may be involved in membrane transport processes. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]
GeneCards Summary for HERC1 Gene
HERC1 (HECT And RLD Domain Containing E3 Ubiquitin Protein Ligase Family Member 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HERC1 include Macrocephaly, Dysmorphic Facies, And Psychomotor Retardation and Megalencephaly-Severe Kyphoscoliosis-Overgrowth Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is HERC2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HERC1 Gene
Involved in membrane trafficking via some guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) activity and its ability to bind clathrin. Acts as a GEF for Arf and Rab, by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP. Binds phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate, which is required for GEF activity. May also act as a E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which accepts ubiquitin from an E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme in the form of a thioester and then directly transfers the ubiquitin to targeted substrates.
