EC 2.3.2.26     
Accepted name: HECT-type E3 ubiquitin transferase
Reaction: S-ubiquitinyl-[E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine + [acceptor protein]-L-lysine = [E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine + N6-ubiquitinyl-[acceptor protein]-L-lysine (overall reaction)
(1a) S-ubiquitinyl-[E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine + [HECT-type E3 ubiquitin transferase]-L-cysteine = [E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine + S-ubiquitinyl-[HECT-type E3 ubiquitin transferase]-L-cysteine
(1b) S-ubiquitinyl-[HECT-type E3 ubiquitin transferase]-L-cysteine + [acceptor protein]-L-lysine = [HECT-type E3 ubiquitin transferase]-L-cysteine + N6-ubiquitinyl-[acceptor protein]-L-lysine
Glossary: HECT protein domain = Homologous to the E6-AP Carboxyl Terminus protein domain
Other name(s): HECT E3 ligase (misleading); ubiquitin transferase HECT-E3
Systematic name: S-ubiquitinyl-[HECT-type E3-ubiquitin transferase]-L-cysteine:acceptor protein ubiquitin transferase (isopeptide bond-forming)
Comments: In the first step the enzyme transfers ubiquitin from the E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme (EC 2.3.2.23) to a cysteine residue in its HECT domain (which is located in the C-terminal region), forming a thioester bond. In a subsequent step the enzyme transfers the ubiquitin to an acceptor protein, resulting in the formation of an isopeptide bond between the C-terminal glycine residue of ubiquitin and the ε-amino group of an L-lysine residue of the acceptor protein.
