Accepts ubiquitin from the E1 complex and catalyzes its covalent attachment to other proteins. In vitro catalyzes 'Lys-48'-linked polyubiquitination. Involved in endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD).
Protein modification; protein ubiquitination.
Belongs to the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family.
Western blot analysis on immunoprecipitation pellet from K562 cell lysate immunoprecipitated using ab174296 at 1/10 dilution. Detection utilized HRP-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG which preferentially detects the non-reduced form of rabbit IgG.
