|Calculated MW||H=118,66;M=118 KDa|
|Antigen Region||861-889 aa|
|Other Names||Ubiquitin-like modifier-activating enzyme 6, Ubiquitin-activating enzyme 6, Monocyte protein 4, MOP-4, Ubiquitin-activating enzyme E1-like protein 2, E1-L2, UBA6, MOP4, UBE1L2|
|Target/Specificity||This UBA6 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 861-889 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human UBA6.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||UBA6 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Activates ubiquitin by first adenylating its C-terminal glycine residue with ATP, and thereafter linking this residue to the side chain of a cysteine residue in E1, yielding a ubiquitin- E1 thioester and free AMP. Specific for ubiquitin, does not activate ubiquitin-like peptides. Differs from UBE1 in its specificity for substrate E2 charging. Does not charge cell cycle E2s, such as CDC34. Essential for embryonic development. Required for UBD/FAT10 conjugation. Isoform 2 may play a key role in ubiquitin system and may influence spermatogenesis and male fertility.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Isoform 2 is predominantly expressed in testis with higher expression in adult testis than in fetal testis.|

Modification of proteins with ubiquitin (UBB; MIM 191339) or ubiquitin-like proteins controls many signaling networks and requires a ubiquitin-activating enzyme (E1), a ubiquitin conjugating enzyme (E2), and a ubiquitin protein ligase (E3). UBE1L2 is an E1 enzyme that initiates the activation and conjugation of ubiquitin-like proteins (Jin et al., 2007 [PubMed 17597759]).
