Summaries for UHRF2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UHRF2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a nuclear protein which is involved in cell-cycle regulation. The encoded protein is a ubiquitin-ligase capable of ubiquinating PCNP (PEST-containing nuclear protein), and together they may play a role in tumorigenesis. The encoded protein contains an NIRF_N domain, a PHD finger, a set- and ring-associated (SRA) domain, and a RING finger domain and several of these domains have been shown to be essential for the regulation of cell proliferation. This protein may also have a role in intranuclear degradation of polyglutamine aggregates. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants some of which are non-protein coding.

GeneCards Summary for UHRF2 Gene

UHRF2 (Ubiquitin Like With PHD And Ring Finger Domains 2) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and histone binding. An important paralog of this gene is UHRF1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UHRF2 Gene

  • E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that is an intermolecular hub protein in the cell cycle network. Through cooperative DNA and histone binding, may contribute to a tighter epigenetic control of gene expression in differentiated cells. Ubiquitinates cyclins, CCND1 and CCNE1, in an apparently phosphorylation-independent manner and induces G1 arrest. Also ubiquitinates PCNP leading to its degradation by the proteasome. E3 SUMO-, but not ubiquitin-, protein ligase for ZNF131.

Function for UHRF2 Gene

Molecular function for UHRF2 Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:

Through cooperative DNA and histone binding, may contribute to a tighter epigenetic control of gene expression in differentiated cells. Ubiquitinates cyclins, CCND1 and CCNE1, in an apparently phosphorylation-independent manner and induces G1 arrest. Also ubiquitinates PCNP leading to its degradation by the proteasome. E3 SUMO-, but not ubiquitin-, protein ligase for ZNF131.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
Up-regulated in proliferating fetal lung fibroblasts and in U-937 myeloid leukemia cells. Down-regulated in these cells by growth arrest and differentiation. In other cell types which cannot leave the cell cycle, such as tumoral HT-1080 and Hep-G2, levels are consistently up-regulated.
