Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PJA1 Gene
This gene encodes an enzyme that has E2-dependent E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity. This enzyme belongs to a class of ubiquitin ligases that include a RING finger motif, and it can interact with the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme UbcH5B. This gene is located in an area of chromosome X where several X-linked mental retardation disorders have been associated, and it has also been found as part of a contiguous gene deletion associated with craniofrontonasal syndrome, though a direct link to any disorder has yet to be demonstrated. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
GeneCards Summary for PJA1 Gene
PJA1 (Praja Ring Finger Ubiquitin Ligase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Antigen processing- Ubiquitination and Proteasome degradation. GO annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PJA2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PJA1 Gene
Has E2-dependent E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity. Ubiquitinates MAGED1 antigen leading to its subsequent degradation by proteasome (By similarity). May be involved in protein sorting.
