Ubiquitination, the covalent attachment of the protein ubiquitin (Ub) to other cellular proteins, has been implicated in a number of important physiological processes. ubiquitin conjugating enzyme (E2) plays an important role in the ubiquitin system. Here we report the research about a human putative ubiquitin conjugating enzyme gene, UBE2Z. The length of UBE2Z cDNA is 3054 base pairs and contains an open reading frame encoding 246 amino acids. The UBE2Z gene was mapped to human chromosome 17q21.32 and consisted of 6 exons. RT-PCR showed that UBE2Z was widely expressed in human tissues, especially high in placenta, pancreas, spleen and testis. The UBE2Z-GFP fusion protein was located in both nucleus and cytoplasm of AD293 cells.
