Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 variant 2

Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 variant proteins constitute a distinct subfamily within the E2 protein family. They have sequence similarity to other ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes but lack the conserved cysteine residue that is critical for the catalytic activity of E2s. The protein encoded by this gene also shares homology with ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 variant 1 and yeast MMS2 gene product. It may be involved in the differentiation of monocytes and enterocytes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Molecular insights into the function of RING finger (RNF)-containing proteins hRNF8 and hRNF168 in Ubc13/Mms2-dependent ubiquitylation.
Glover et al., Edmonton, Canada. In J Biol Chem, 2012
Data show RING finger (RNF) E3 ubiquitin ligase RNF8 dimerizes and binds to E2 ubiquitin-conjugating complex Ubc13/Mms2 with formation of Lys-63 ubiquitin chains, whereas the RNF168 RING domain is a monomer and does not catalyze Lys-6 ubiquitylation.
