Gene Summary
Ubiquitin-like activating enzyme 5 (Uba5) encodes a member of the E1-like ubiquitin-activating enzyme family. It activates the protein encoded by Ufm1, and acts as a key factor in the ufmylation process. It is involved in ATP binding, catalytic activity, cofactor binding, metal ion binding, nucleotide binding and oxidoreductase activity. [Date last reviewed: 2019-09-26] (FlyBase Gene Snapshot)

Gene Group (FlyBase)
UFM1 ACTIVATING ENZYMES -
UFM1 activating enzymes are 'non-canonical' E1 enzymes that form obligate homodimers and activate the ubiquitin-like protein UFM1 for subsequent steps along its conjugation cascade. (Adapted from PMID:28234446.)
Protein Function (UniProtKB)
E1-like enzyme which activates UFM1.
