Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0007717
UniProt IDP61081
Primary gene name(s)UBE2M
Synonym gene name(s)UBC12
Protein nameNEDD8-conjugating enzyme Ubc12
Protein functionAccepts the ubiquitin-like protein NEDD8 from the UBA3-NAE1 E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. The specific interaction with the E3 ubiquitin ligase RBX1, but not RBX2, suggests that the RBX1-UBE2M complex neddylates specific target proteins, such as CUL1, CUL2, CUL3 and CUL4. Involved in cell proliferation. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:10207026, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15361859}.
