    Enables ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. Involved in negative regulation of epidermal growth factor receptor signaling pathway; protein autoubiquitination; and ubiquitin-dependent protein catabolic process via the multivesicular body sorting pathway. Predicted to be located in cytosol. [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Nov 2021]

    Protein interactions

    Protein Gene Interaction Pubs
    Pr55(Gag) gag Increased levels of ubiquitinated BCA2 are found in the presence of HIV-1 Gag, suggesting that the auto-ubiquitination activity of BCA2 increases in the absence of target proteins PubMed
    gag Replacement of cysteine residues at positions 228 and 231 with alanine in the E3 catalytic domain of BCA2 has no defect in Gag expression or processing, indicating that residues 228 and 231 are required for the antiviral activity of BCA2 PubMed
    gag A ligase-dead mutant deltaRING-BCA2 has no defect in Gag expression or processing, indicating that the intact RING-domain is required for the antiviral activity of BCA2 PubMed
    gag BCA2 has tetherin-independent antiviral activity, which results in a defect in either Gag expression or processing, impairing virus assembly and release for both HIV-1 and SIV PubMed
    gag BCA2 promotes the lysosomal degradation of HIV-1 and SIV Gag proteins and induces changes in the subcellular distribution of Gag PubMed
    gag Results from co-immunoprecipitation assays indicate that the N-terminal region (residues 1-147) of BCA2 physically interacts with the MA region (residues 1-165) of HIV-1 Gag PubMed
    gag BCA2 induces ubiquitination of both HIV-1 and SIV Gag proteins, resulting in lysine residues K113, K114, and K418 in HIV-1 Gag, and K360 and K419 residues in SIV Gag that are ubiquinated PubMed
    gag BCA2 co-localizes with HIV-1 Gag in in CD63+ endosomes/lysosomes PubMed

    RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

    These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

    These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
