Gene Inhibited  W02A11.4 (uba-2)
Description of "W02A11.4"  uba-2 encodes the C. elegans ortholog of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Uba2p and human ubiquitin-like 2 activating enzyme E1B; by homology, UBA-2 is predicted to form, with a regulatory subunit, AOS-1, a heterodimeric enzyme that activates the ubiquitin-like protein SMO-1/SUMO in preparation for its covalent attachment to target proteins to regulate their subcellular localization and/or stability; in C. elegans, UBA-2 is required for embryogenesis and vulval development, as well as for proper Hox gene regulation; uba-2/aos-1(RNAi) animals that survive embryogenesis show ectopic expression of EGL-5 and ectopic anterior sensory ray formation.
KOG Annotation  SMT3/SUMO-activating complex, catalytic component UBA2
