|Other Names||Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 G1, E217K, UBC7, Ubiquitin carrier protein G1, Ubiquitin-protein ligase G1, Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2 G1, N-terminally processed, UBE2G1, UBE2G|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2121b was selected from the C-term region of human UBE2G1 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Accepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. In vitro catalyzes 'Lys- 48'-, as well as 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitination. May be involved in degradation of muscle-specific proteins. Mediates polyubiquitination of CYP3A4.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed, mainly in skeletal muscle.|

The modification of proteins with ubiquitin is an important cellular mechanism for targeting abnormal or short-lived proteins for degradation. Ubiquitination involves at least three classes of enzymes: ubiquitin-activating enzymes, or E1s, ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes, or E2s, and ubiquitin-protein ligases, or E3s. UBE2G1 is a member of the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family. The encoded protein shares 98-100% sequence identity with the zebrafish, frog, rat and mouse counterparts, which indicates that this enzyme is highly conserved in eukaryotes.
