1H, 13C and 15N resonance assignments for the human E2 conjugating enzyme, UbcH7



UbcH7 is a human E2 conjugating enzyme in the ubiquitin-dependent protein degradation pathway. The resonance assignments of UbcH7 will assist in elucidating the structural basis of interactions that occur within ubiquitination.


UbcH7 E2 conjugating enzyme Ubiquitin conjugation pathway Parkin 



Really interesting new gene


Human homologue of Drosophila ariadne


Nuclear magnetic resonance


Heteronuclear single quantum correlation
