Protein interactions

Protein Gene Interaction Pubs
Pr55(Gag) gag Increased levels of ubiquitinated BCA2 are found in the presence of HIV-1 Gag, suggesting that the auto-ubiquitination activity of BCA2 increases in the absence of target proteins PubMed
gag Replacement of cysteine residues at positions 228 and 231 with alanine in the E3 catalytic domain of BCA2 has no defect in Gag expression or processing, indicating that residues 228 and 231 are required for the antiviral activity of BCA2 PubMed
gag A ligase-dead mutant deltaRING-BCA2 has no defect in Gag expression or processing, indicating that the intact RING-domain is required for the antiviral activity of BCA2 PubMed
gag BCA2 has tetherin-independent antiviral activity, which results in a defect in either Gag expression or processing, impairing virus assembly and release for both HIV-1 and SIV PubMed
gag BCA2 promotes the lysosomal degradation of HIV-1 and SIV Gag proteins and induces changes in the subcellular distribution of Gag PubMed
gag Results from co-immunoprecipitation assays indicate that the N-terminal region (residues 1-147) of BCA2 physically interacts with the MA region (residues 1-165) of HIV-1 Gag PubMed
gag BCA2 induces ubiquitination of both HIV-1 and SIV Gag proteins, resulting in lysine residues K113, K114, and K418 in HIV-1 Gag, and K360 and K419 residues in SIV Gag that are ubiquinated PubMed
gag BCA2 co-localizes with HIV-1 Gag in in CD63+ endosomes/lysosomes PubMed
Vpu vpu HIV-1 Vpu antagonizes the effects of BCA2 on HIV-1 particle production in ""tetherin-positive"" cells PubMed
capsid gag A significant downregulation in the levels of virion-associated CA is observed in cells expressing BCA2 for both wild-type HIV-1 and Vpu-deficient HIV-1 PubMed
matrix gag Results from co-immunoprecipitation assays indicate that the N-terminal region (residues 1-147) of BCA2 physically interacts with HIV-1 MA but not CA and NC proteins PubMed

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
