UBC12 (also known as Ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2M, Ubiquitin-protein ligase M, Ubiquitin carrier protein M, and Nedd8-conjugating enzyme Ubc12) is a member of the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family. 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. UBC12 is linked with a ubiquitin-like protein, NEDD8, which can be conjugated to cellular proteins, such as Cdc53/cullin.
This affinity purified antibody was prepared from whole goat serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding aa 169-180 of Human UBC12 protein.
