Summaries for UBE2G1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UBE2G1 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 and catalyzes the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to other proteins. The protein may be involved in degradation of muscle-specific proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for UBE2G1 Gene

UBE2G1 (Ubiquitin-Conjugating Enzyme E2G 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UBE2G1 include cri-du-chat syndrome. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Remodeling of Adherens Junctions. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity and ubiquitin protein ligase binding. An important paralog of this gene is UBE2R2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UBE2G1 Gene

  • Accepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. In vitro catalyzes Lys-48-, as well as Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination. May be involved in degradation of muscle-specific proteins. Mediates polyubiquitination of CYP3A4.
