Scientific Background :UBA3 (also known as UBE1C) or ubiquitin-like modifier activating enzyme 3 is a member of the E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme family. UBA3 associates with AppBp1, an amyloid beta precursor protein binding protein, to form a heterodimer, and then the enzyme complex activates NEDD8, a ubiquitin-like protein, which regulates cell division, signaling and embryogenesis. The mechanism of NEDD8 activation by APPBP1-UBA3 shows a high degree of conservation with ubiquitin activation by UBA1 (1). The NEDD8-activating enzyme, or NAE, composed of NAE1 and UBA3 subunits, is an essential component for the treatment of cancer disease (2).
