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 Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis. 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.
