EC 2.3.2.25     
Accepted name: N-terminal E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme
Reaction: S-ubiquitinyl-[E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine + [acceptor protein]-N-terminal-amino acid = [E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine + N-terminal-ubiquitinyl-[acceptor protein] (overall reaction)
(1a) S-ubiquitinyl-[E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine + [N-terminal E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine = [E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine + S-ubiquitinyl-[N-terminal ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine
(1b) S-ubiquitinyl-[N-terminal E2 ubiquitin-conjugating E2 enzyme]-L-cysteine + [acceptor protein]-N-terminal-amino acid = [N-terminal E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine + N-ubiquitinyl-[acceptor protein]-N-terminal amino acid
Other name(s): Ube2w; N-terminal ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme E2
Systematic name: S-ubiquitinyl-[E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine:acceptor protein ubiquitin ligase (peptide bond-forming)
Comments: The enzyme ubiquitinylates the N-terminus of the acceptor protein. It is not reactive towards free lysine.
