Previous GeneCards Identifiers for UBE2S Gene
This gene encodes a member of the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family. The encoded protein is able to form a thiol ester linkage with ubiquitin in a ubiquitin activating enzyme-dependent manner, a characteristic property of ubiquitin carrier proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for UBE2S Gene
UBE2S (Ubiquitin-Conjugating Enzyme E2S) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Immune System and DNA Damage. GO annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and ubiquitin protein ligase binding. An important paralog of this gene is UBE2B.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UBE2S Gene
Accepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. Catalyzes Lys-11-linked polyubiquitination. Acts as an essential factor of the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C), a cell cycle-regulated ubiquitin ligase that controls progression through mitosis. Acts by specifically elongating Lys-11-linked polyubiquitin chains initiated by the E2 enzyme UBE2C/UBCH10 on APC/C substrates, enhancing the degradation of APC/C substrates by the proteasome and promoting mitotic exit. Also acts by elongating ubiquitin chains initiated by the E2 enzyme UBE2D1/UBCH5 in vitro; it is however unclear whether UBE2D1/UBCH5 acts as a E2 enzyme for the APC/C in vivo. Also involved in ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of VHL, resulting in an accumulation of HIF1A. In vitro able to promote polyubiquitination using all 7 ubiquitin Lys residues, except Lys-48-linked polyubiquitination.
