Ubc13p (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is product of expression of UBC13 gene.

FUNCTION: Has a role in the DNA error-free postreplication repair (PRR) pathway. The UBC13/MMS2 heterodimer catalyzes the synthesis of non-canonical poly-ubiquitin chains that are linked through 'Lys-63'.

CATALYTIC ACTIVITY: ATP + ubiquitin + protein lysine = AMP + diphosphate + protein N-ubiquityllysine.

PATHWAY: Protein modification; protein ubiquitination.

SUBUNIT: Heterodimer with MMS2.

INTERACTION: P39525:CEM1; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-19777, EBI-4467; P10174:COX7; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-19777, EBI-2050505; P53152:MMS2; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-19777, EBI-11035; Q06651:PIB1; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-19777, EBI-35947; P09938:RNR2; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-19777, EBI-15240; P40210:SIP5; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-19777, EBI-27280; P41896:TFG2; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-19777, EBI-18916; P38988:YHM1; NbExp=1; IntAct=EBI-19777, EBI-24559;

MISCELLANEOUS: Present with 8970 molecules/cell in log phase SD medium.

SIMILARITY: Belongs to the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme family.
