ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme.
Alternative Name(s)
Ubiquitin-activating enzyme E1.
Reaction catalysed
ATP + ubiquitin + [E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine <=> AMP + diphosphate + S-ubiquitinyl-[E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine
  • Catalyzes the ATP-dependent activation of ubiquitin through the formation of a thioester bond between the C-terminal glycine of ubiquitin and the sulfhydryl side group of a cysteine residue in the E1 protein.
  • The two-step reaction consists of the ATP-dependent formation of an E1-ubiquitin adenylate intermediate in which the C-terminal glycine of ubiquitin is bound to AMP via an acyl-phosphate linkage, then followed by the conversion to an E1-ubiquitin thioester bond via the cysteine residue on E1 in the second step.
  • Formerly EC and EC
