Literature associating ARIH1 and Meester-Loeys syndrome
Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2-binding protein 1; E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase, which catalyzes ubiquitination of target proteins together with ubiquitin- conjugating enzyme E2 UBE2L3. Acts as an atypical E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase by working together with cullin-RING ubiquitin ligase (CRL) complexes and initiating ubiquitination of CRL substrates: associates with CRL complexes and specifically mediates addition of the first ubiquitin on CRLs targets. The initial ubiquitin is then elongated by CDC34/UBE2R1 and UBE2R2. E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity is activated upon binding to neddylated cullin- RING ubiquitin ligase complexes. Plays a role in protein translation in response to DNA damage by mediating ubiquitination of EIF4E2, the consequences of EIF4E2 ubiquitination are however unclear. According to a report, EIF4E2 ubiquitination leads to promote EIF4E2 cap-binding and protein translation arrest. According to another report EIF4E2 ubiquitination leads to its subsequent degradation. Acts as the ligase involved in ISGylation of EIF4E2.
