Ubiquitin conjugating enzyme E2 A
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes, also known as E2 enzymes and more rarely as ubiquitin-carrier enzymes, perform the second step in the ubiquitination reaction that targets a protein for degradation via the proteasome. Ubiquitin conjugating enzyme E2 A is a member of the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family. E2A is required for post-replicative DNA damage repair, and may play a role in transcriptional regulation. Mutations in this gene are associated with cognitive disability.
