24813613 Study identified APC/C substrates, including the kinase Nek2A, that require Ube2S for degradation. The reconstitution of Nek2A-ubiquitylation revealed that Ube2S does not simply extend a conjugate but instead branches multiple K11-linked chains off the assemblies produced by Ube2C.
22895574 E2-EPF is overexpressed in cervical cancer and associates with tumor growth
21376237 Linkage-specific ubiquitin chain formation by Ube2S is the result of substrate-assisted catalysis.
21281817 These findings reveal deregulation of the oxygen-sensing pathway impinging on the positive feedback mechanism of HIF1-mediated regulation of E2-EPF in papillary renal cell carcinoma.
20080579 K11 specificity is determined by an E2 enzyme, UBE2S/E2-EPF, that elongates ubiquitin chains after the substrates are pre-ubiquitinated by UbcH10 or UbcH5.
19822757 UbcH10 and Ube2S constitute a physiological E2-module for anaphase-promoting complex, the activity of which is required for spindle assembly and cell division.
19820702 UBE2S functions with the APC/C in a two-step mechanism to control substrate ubiquitylation that is essential for mitotic exit after prolonged SAC activation, providing a new model for APC/C function in human cells
19083192 Results suggest that UCP was significantly associated with poor prognosis of esophageal cancer and may be a new molecular target for therapeutic intervention for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.
18780286 E2-EPF UCP expression induced by growth factors or serum increased HIF-1alpha protein level under non-hypoxic conditions, suggesting that the Egr-1/SRF-UCP-VHL pathway is in part responsible for the increased HIF-1alpha protein level
