Summaries for UBE2E3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UBE2E3 Gene

  • The modification of proteins with ubiquitin is an important cellular mechanism for targeting abnormal or short-lived proteins for degradation. Ubiquitination involves at least three classes of enzymes: ubiquitin-activating enzymes, or E1s, ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes, or E2s, and ubiquitin-protein ligases, or E3s. This gene encodes a member of the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family. The encoded protein shares 100% sequence identity with the mouse and rat counterparts, which indicates that this enzyme is highly conserved in eukaryotes. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2013]

GeneCards Summary for UBE2E3 Gene

UBE2E3 (Ubiquitin Conjugating Enzyme E2 E3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Protein ubiquitination and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. GO annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and acid-amino acid ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is UBE2D2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UBE2E3 Gene

  • Accepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. In vitro catalyzes Lys-11- and Lys-48-, as well as Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination. Participates in the regulation of transepithelial sodium transport in renal cells. May be involved in cell growth arrest.
