Previous GeneCards Identifiers for UBE2T Gene
The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to protein substrates. Defects in this gene have been associated with Fanconi anemia of complementation group T. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2015]

UBE2T (Ubiquitin Conjugating Enzyme E2 T) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UBE2T include Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group T and Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group A. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Ubiquitin-Proteasome Dependent Proteolysis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is UBE2N.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for UBE2T Gene
Accepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. Catalyzes monoubiquitination. Involved in mitomycin-C (MMC)-induced DNA repair. Acts as a specific E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme for the Fanconi anemia complex by associating with E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase FANCL and catalyzing monoubiquitination of FANCD2, a key step in the DNA damage pathway (PubMed:16916645, PubMed:17938197, PubMed:19111657, PubMed:19589784, PubMed:28437106). Also mediates monoubiquitination of FANCL and FANCI (PubMed:16916645, PubMed:17938197, PubMed:19111657, PubMed:19589784). May contribute to ubiquitination and degradation of BRCA1 (PubMed:19887602). In vitro able to promote polyubiquitination using all 7 ubiquitin Lys residues, but may prefer 'Lys-11'-, 'Lys-27'-, 'Lys-48'- and 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitination (PubMed:20061386).
