  • Tool name: pRSF-1b-UbcH5B Vector
  • Alternate names: UBE2D2, E2(17)KB2, PUBC1, UBC4, UBC4/5, UBCH4, UBCH5B, ubiquitin conjugating enzyme E2 D2
  • Tool type: Vector
  • Tool sub-type: pRSF-1b
  • Description: Protein modification through ubiquitination is an important cellular mechanism to target abnormal or short-lived proteins for degradation. The process of ubiquitination involves three classes of enzymes: ubiquitin-activating enzymes, ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes and ubiquitin-protein ligases. UbcH5B, encoded by the UBE2D2 gene, is a member of the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family. UbcH5B is involved in the ubiquitination of p53 and two alternatively spliced transcript variants have been discovered which encode distinct isoforms.
