GeneCards Summary for UBR3 Gene

UBR3 (Ubiquitin Protein Ligase E3 Component N-Recognin 3 (Putative)) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is UBR1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UBR3 Gene

  • E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which is a component of the N-end rule pathway. Does not bind to proteins bearing specific N-terminal residues that are destabilizing according to the N-end rule, leading to their ubiquitination and subsequent degradation (By similarity).
