- PubMed Abstract:
UbcH5c belongs to the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family and plays an important role in catalyzing ubiquitination during TNF- α --triggered NF- κ B activation. Therefore, UbcH5c is a potent therapeutic target for the treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases induced by aberrant activation of NF- κ B. In this study, we established a stable expression system for recombinant UbcH5c and solved the crystal structure of UbcH5c belonging to space group P22 1 2 1 with one molecule in the asymmetric unit. This study provides the basis for further study of UbcH5c including the design of UbcH5c inhibitors.
