GeneCards Summary for ECPAS Gene

ECPAS (Ecm29 Proteasome Adaptor And Scaffold) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is GCN1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for ECPAS Gene

  • Adapter/scaffolding protein that binds to the 26S proteasome, motor proteins and other compartment specific proteins. May couple the proteasome to different compartments including endosome, endoplasmic reticulum and centrosome. May play a role in ERAD and other enhanced proteolysis (PubMed:15496406). Promotes proteasome dissociation under oxidative stress (By similarity).
