Data Sheet: 

UBE2S (E2-24K, E2-EPF) shares 38% identity with S.cerevisiae UBC4 with a conserved UBC domain that is characteristic of Ubiquitin E2 conjugating enzymes. This E2 enzyme is over-expressed in common human cancers and targets von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) for proteosomal degradation, thereby stabilizing HIF-1α.  Overexpression of UBE2S in vitro and in vivo boosts tumor-cell proliferation, invasion and metastasis through effects on the pVHL-HIF pathway, and may thus be a novel molecular target for therapeutic intervention. UBE2S has also been identified as a K11-specific E2 for the anaphase-promoting complex (APC/C), and the E2 depends on the cell cycle-dependent association with the APC/C activators Cdc20 and Cdh1 for its activity.  In vitro, UBE2S elongates ubiquitin chains initiated by the E2 enzymes UbcH10 and UbcH5, enhancing the degradation of APC/C substrates by the proteasome.
