Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0004524
UniProt IDQ9GZP9
Primary gene name(s)DERL2
Synonym gene name(s)DER2, FLANA
Protein nameDerlin-2
Protein functionFunctional component of endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation, ERAD for misfolded lumenal glycoproteins, but not that of misfolded nonglycoproteins. May act by forming a channel that allows the retrotranslocation of misfolded glycoproteins into the cytosol where they are ubiquitinated and degraded by the proteasome. May mediate the interaction between VCP and the degradation substrate. In contrast to DERL1, it is not involved in the degradation of MHC class I heavy chains following infection by cytomegaloviruses. May play a role in cell proliferation. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15215855, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16186509, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16449189}.
