Summaries for UBE2Q1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UBE2Q1 Gene

  • The modification of proteins with ubiquitin is an important cellular mechanism for targeting abnormal or short-lived proteins for degradation. Ubiquitination involves at least three classes of enzymes: ubiquitin-activating enzymes (E1s), ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes (E2s), and ubiquitin-protein ligases (E3s). This gene encodes a member of the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family. The encoded protein is 98% identical to the mouse counterpart. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for UBE2Q1 Gene

UBE2Q1 (Ubiquitin Conjugating Enzyme E2 Q1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation and Protein ubiquitination. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and acid-amino acid ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is UBE2Q2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UBE2Q1 Gene

  • Catalyzes the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to other proteins (PubMed:22496338). May be involved in hormonal homeostasis in females. Involved in regulation of B4GALT1 cell surface expression, B4GALT1-mediated cell adhesion to laminin and embryoid body formation (By similarity).
