    basic FUNCTION
  • ubiquitin conjugating enzyme E2B, involved in post replication repair
  • have a specific role in spermatogenesis, involving ubiquitin -mediated histone degradation
  • transcriptional target of beta-catenin, and the positive regulatory feedback loop between UBE2B and beta-catenin is linked to a novel mechanism of beta-catenin stabilization/activation in breast cancer cells
  • represses major satellite repeat transcription in spermatocytes, and functions in the maintenance of X chromosome silencing in spermatocytes and spermatids
  • intrinsically capable of catalyzing ubiquitin chain formation
  • RAD18 and UBE2B have a role in the efficient repair of a small subset of meiotic DSBs
  • plays a critical role in regulating TP53 protein levels under both normal and stress conditions
  • UBE2A, UBE2B regulates TP53 levels in a "yin-yang" manner through a combination of two distinct mechanisms in mammalian cells
  • involved in the regular and symmetric organization of the fibrous sheath of sperm flagella
  • CELLULAR PROCESS cell cycle
    nucleotide, repair
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS
    PATHWAY
    metabolism
    signaling
    a component
  • RAD18 complexed with UBE2B protein preferentially binds to forked and single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) structures, which are known to be localized at stalled replication forks
  • RNF168, in complex with UBE2A or UBE2B, is activated in the DNA-damage-induced protein ubiquitination cascade
  • UBE2A, UBE2B can form a ternary complex with MDM2 and TP53 that contributes to the degradation of TP53
  • INTERACTION
    DNA
    RNA
    small molecule
    protein
  • UBE2A, RAD18
  • transcriptional target of beta-catenin/TCF
  • interacting with UBR2 (interacts with UBE2B and its substrate HIST2H2AC and promotes the UBE2B–HIST2H2AC interaction and the UBE2B-to-HIST2H2AC transfer of ubiquitin)
  • RNF168, in complex with UBE2A or UBE2B, is activated in the DNA-damage-induced protein ubiquitination cascade
  • UBE2B is a direct AR transcriptional target in Sertoli cells, mediates the function of AR in spermatogenesis by promoting H2A ubiquitylation
  • interplay between UBE2A, UBE2B and ASF1A associates with tumorigenesis
