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. This gene encodes a member of the;E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family and catalyzes the covalent attachment of ubiquitin to other proteins. The;protein may be involved in degradation of muscle-specific proteins.
