  Domain Name: UBCc
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2, catalytic (UBCc) domain. This is part of the ubiquitin-mediated protein degradation pathway in which a thiol-ester linkage forms between a conserved cysteine and the C-terminus of ubiquitin and complexes with ubiquitin protein ligase enzymes, E3. This pathway regulates many fundamental cellular processes. There are also other E2s which form thiol-ester linkages without the use of E3s as well as several UBC homologs (TSG101, Mms2, Croc-1 and similar proteins) which lack the active site cysteine essential for ubiquitination and appear to function in DNA repair pathways which were omitted from the scope of this CD.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
