Mouse anti UBC antibody recognizes polyubiquitin-C.

UBC is important for maintaining homeostatic levels of ubiquitin (Ub), an abundant protein which is one of the most important post-translational modifiers within the proteome. Ubiquitination marks proteins and organelles for degredation or autophagic clearance, essential for normal cellular functions (Senft et al. 2018). UBC is upregulated during stress and downregulated when Ub is overexpressed, and appears to play a protective role in response to stress (Bianchi et al. 2019). The promoter of the UBC gene includes heat-shock elements (HSEs) which explain its upregulation during stress. Accordingly, Ub itself is considered a hest shock protein (Crinelli et al. 2015). Proteasomal degradation, mediated by Ub, is often dysregulated in cancer cells and can lead to tumorigenesis and cancer progression. Furthermore, UBC interacts with many cancer-associated proteins, including CDK1, E2F1, EGFR and p53, and might be involved with regulation of the tumor microenvironment (Kim et al. 2017). Components of the Ub pathway have been suggested as drug targets for cancer therapy (Liu et al. 2016).
