Also known as: UBA5

His6-UFM1 Activating Enzyme is the E1-like enzyme responsible for the activation of the ubiquitin-like modifier, Ufm1 (UL-500). The enzyme contains a conserved ThiF domain with a nearby cysteine catalytic residue (Cys250) and ATP-binding motif GXGXXG. This protein is highly conserved in humans and other higher eukaryotes, but not yeast.The enzyme utilizes ATP to adenylate the C-terminal glycine residue of Ufm1, forming a high-energy thiolester bond with the active site cysteine residue and the release of AMP. The second step is the trans-esterification reaction whereby Ufm1 is transferred to the E2-like protein Ufc1 (E2-675). This protein has an N-terminal His6-tag.
