Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0004168
UniProt IDP49427
Primary gene name(s)CDC34
Synonym gene name(s)UBCH3, UBE2R1
Protein nameUbiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 R1
Protein functionAccepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. In vitro catalyzes 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitination. Cooperates with the E2 UBCH5C and the SCF(FBXW11 E3 ligase complex for the polyubiquitination of NFKBIA leading to its subsequent proteasomal degradation. Performs ubiquitin chain elongation building ubiquitin chains from the UBE2D3-primed NFKBIA-linked ubiquitin. UBE2D3 acts as an initiator E2, priming the phosphorylated NFKBIA target at positions 'Lys-21' and/or 'Lys-22' with a monoubiquitin. Cooperates with the SCF(SKP2 E3 ligase complex to regulate cell proliferation through ubiquitination and degradation of MYBL2 and KIP1. Involved in ubiquitin conjugation and degradation of CREM isoform ICERIIgamma and ATF15 resulting in abrogation of ICERIIgamma- and ATF5-mediated repression of cAMP-induced transcription during both meiotic and mitotic cell cycles. Involved in the regulation of the cell cycle G2/M phase through its targeting of the WEE1 kinase for ubiquitination and degradation. Also involved in the degradation of beta-catenin. Is target of human herpes virus 1 protein ICP0, leading to ICP0-dependent dynamic interaction with proteasomes. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10329681, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10373550, ECO:0000269|PubMed:10871850, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11675391, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12037680, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15652359, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17461777, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17698585, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19112177, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19126550, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19945379, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20061386, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20347421}.
Subcellular locationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=The phosphorylation of the C-terminal tail plays an important role in mediating nuclear localization. Colocalizes with beta-tubulin on mitotic spindles in anaphase.
