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 Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Cell Cycle / Checkpoint Control. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. 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.
