Previous GeneCards Identifiers for HERC6 Gene
HERC6 belongs to the HERC family of ubiquitin ligases, all of which contain a HECT domain and at least 1 RCC1 (MIM 179710)-like domain (RLD). The 350-amino acid HECT domain is predicted to catalyze the formation of a thioester with ubiquitin before transferring it to a substrate, and the RLD is predicted to act as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor for small G proteins (Hochrainer et al., 2005 [PubMed 15676274]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for HERC6 Gene
HERC6 (HECT And RLD Domain Containing E3 Ubiquitin Protein Ligase Family Member 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HERC6 include Marburg Hemorrhagic Fever. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is HERC5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for HERC6 Gene
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which accepts ubiquitin from an E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme in the form of a thioester and then directly transfers the ubiquitin to targeted substrates.
