  • FunctionAccepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. In vitro catalyzes 'Lys-11'- and 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitination. Acts as an essential factor of the anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C), a cell cycle-regulated ubiquitin ligase that controls progression through mitosis. Acts by initiating 'Lys-11'-linked polyubiquitin chains on APC/C substrates, leading to the degradation of APC/C substrates by the proteasome and promoting mitotic exit.
  • PathwayProtein modification; protein ubiquitination.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family.
  • Post-translational
    Autoubiquitinated by the APC/C complex, leading to its degradation by the proteasome. Its degradation plays a central role in APC/C regulation, allowing cyclin-A accumulation before S phase entry. APC/C substrates inhibit the autoubiquitination of UBE2C/UBCH10 but not its E2 function, hence APC/C remaining active until its substrates have been destroyed.

    ab12290 stainning UBEC2 in the nucleus of surface epithelial cells of human esophagus. Paraffin-embbeded tissue was incubated with ab12290 (1/75 dilution) for 30 minutes at room temperature. Antigen retrieval was performed by heat induction in citrate buffer pH 6.
    ab12290 was tested in a tissue microarray (TMA) containing a wide range of normal and cancer tissues as well as a cell microarray consisting of a range of commonly used, well characterised human cell lines. Further results for this antibody can be found at www.proteinatlas.org

    Additional bands at : 55 kDa,70 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
  • ICC/IF image of ab12290 stained human HEK 293 cells. The cells were methanol fixed (5 min), permabilised in 0.1% PBS-Tween (20 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab12290, 1µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine was used to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red). DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). This antibody also gave a positive IF result in HepG2 and MCF7 cells.
