HUWE1 gene

HECT, UBA and WWE domain containing E3 ubiquitin protein ligase 1

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a protein containing a C-terminal HECT (E6AP type E3 ubiquitin protein ligase) domain that functions as an E3 ubiquitin ligase. The encoded protein is required for the ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of the anti-apoptotic protein Mcl1 (myeloid cell leukemia sequence 1 (BCL2-related)). This protein also ubiquitinates the p53 tumor suppressor, core histones, and DNA polymerase beta. Mutations in this gene are associated with Turner type X-linked syndromic cognitive disability.

From UniProt:

E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which mediates ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins (PubMed:15989957, PubMed:19713937, PubMed:15567145, PubMed:15767685, PubMed:18488021, PubMed:17567951, PubMed:19037095, PubMed:20534529). Regulates apoptosis by catalyzing the polyubiquitination and degradation of MCL1 (PubMed:15989957). Mediates monoubiquitination of DNA polymerase beta (POLB) at 'Lys-41', 'Lys-61' and 'Lys-81', thereby playing a role in base-excision repair (PubMed:19713937). Also ubiquitinates the p53/TP53 tumor suppressor and core histones including H1, H2A, H2B, H3 and H4 (PubMed:15567145, PubMed:15767685, PubMed:15989956). Binds to an upstream initiator-like sequence in the preprodynorphin gene. Regulates neural differentiation and proliferation by catalyzing the polyubiquitination and degradation of MYCN (PubMed:18488021). May regulate abundance of CDC6 after DNA damage by polyubiquitinating and targeting CDC6 to degradation (PubMed:17567951). Mediates polyubiquitination of isoform 2 of PA2G4 (PubMed:19037095). Acts in concert with MYCBP2 to regulate the circadian clock gene expression by promoting the lithium-induced ubiquination and degradation of NR1D1 (PubMed:20534529).

  • Mental retardation, X-linked, syndromic, turner type

From UniProt:

Mental retardation, X-linked, syndromic, Turner type (MRXST): A syndrome characterized by the association of mental retardation with macrocephaly and variable contractures. [MIM:300706]

Mental retardation, X-linked 17 (MRX17): A disorder characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period. Intellectual deficiency is the only primary symptom of non-syndromic X-linked mental retardation, while syndromic mental retardation presents with associated physical, neurological and/or psychiatric manifestations. [MIM:300705]
