General annotation (Comments)

Function

Accepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. Catalyzes monoubiquitination. Involved in degradation of misfolded chaperone substrates by mediating monoubiquitination of STUB1/CHIP, leading to recruitment of ATXN3 to monoubiquitinated STUB1/CHIP, and restriction of the length of ubiquitin chain attached to STUB1/CHIP substrates by ATXN3. After UV irradiation, but not after mitomycin-C (MMC) treatment, 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. In vitro catalyzes 'Lys-11'-linked polyubiquitination. Transfers ubiquitin in complex with RING/U-box type E3s that do not have active site cysteine residues to form thioester bonds with ubiquitin, and preferentially ubiquitinates the N-terminus of substrates, such as ATXN3, STUB1 and SUMO2 By similarity.

Catalytic activity

ATP + ubiquitin + protein lysine = AMP + diphosphate + protein N-ubiquityllysine.

Pathway

Protein modification; protein ubiquitination.

Subunit structure

Homodimer. Interacts with FANCL. Interacts with STUB1/CHIP By similarity.

Subcellular location

Nucleus By similarity. Note: In the nucleus, colocalizes with FANCL By similarity.

Post-translational modification

Ubiquitinated in vitro in the presence of FANCL. Autoubiquitinated at Met-1 By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family.
