Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_F29B9.6, F29B9.6
ubc-9 encodes an E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme orthologous to Saccharomyces cerevisiae Ubc9p, which mediates the covalent attachment of the small ubiquitin-related modifier (SUMO) to various substrates including Ran-GAP1 and p53; UBC-9 activity is required for several developmental processes including embryogenesis, larval development, vulval development, posterior morphogenesis, and the DNA damage response (both DNA repair and DNA damage checkpoint function); UBC-9 interacts with LIN-1, an ETS-domain-containing transcription factor that negatively regulates vulval development, and with RAD-51, the C. elegans RecA homolog that is required for DNA repair; the expression pattern and subcellular localization of UBC-9 are not yet known.
