E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase HUWE1 - Q7Z6Z7 (HUWE1_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which mediates ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins (PubMed:15989957, PubMed:19713937, PubMed:15567145, PubMed:15767685, PubMed:18488021, PubMed:17567951, PubMed:19037095, PubMed:20534529). Regulates apoptosis by catalyzing the polyubiquitination and degradation of MCL1 (PubMed:15989957). Mediates monoubiquitination of DNA polymerase beta (POLB) at 'Lys-41', 'Lys-61' and 'Lys-81', thereby playing a role in base-excision repair (PubMed:19713937). Also ubiquitinates the p53/TP53 tumor suppressor and core histones including H1, H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 (PubMed:15567145, PubMed:15767685, PubMed:15989956). Ubiquitinates MFN2 to negatively regulate mitochondrial fusion in response to decreased stearoylation of TFRC (PubMed:26214738). Binds to an upstream initiator-like sequence in the preprodynorphin gene. Regulates neural differentiation and proliferation by catalyzing the polyubiquitination and degradation of MYCN (PubMed:18488021). May regulate abundance of CDC6 after DNA damage by polyubiquitinating and targeting CDC6 to degradation (PubMed:17567951). Mediates polyubiquitination of isoform 2 of PA2G4 (PubMed:19037095). Acts in concert with MYCBP2 to regulate the circadian clock gene expression by promoting the lithium-induced ubiquination and degradation of NR1D1 (PubMed:20534529). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
