Previous GeneCards Identifiers for FBXO5 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the F-box protein family which is characterized by an approximately 40 amino acid motif, the F-box. The F-box proteins constitute one of the four subunits of the ubiquitin protein ligase complex called SCFs (SKP1-cullin-F-box), which function in phosphorylation-dependent ubiquitination. The F-box proteins are divided into 3 classes: Fbws containing WD-40 domains, Fbls containing leucine-rich repeats, and Fbxs containing either different protein-protein interaction modules or no recognizable motifs. The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the Fbxs class. This protein is similar to xenopus early mitotic inhibitor-1 (Emi1), which is a mitotic regulator that interacts with Cdc20 and inhibits the anaphase promoting complex. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]
GeneCards Summary for FBXO5 Gene
FBXO5 (F-Box Protein 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Cell Cycle, Mitotic and CDK-mediated phosphorylation and removal of Cdc6. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding. An important paralog of this gene is FBXO43.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FBXO5 Gene
Regulates progression through early mitosis by inhibiting the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC). Binds to the APC activators CDC20 and FZR1/CDH1 to prevent APC activation. Can also bind directly to the APC to inhibit substrate-binding.
