UV excision repair protein Rad23 (IPR004806)

Short name: Rad23

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



All proteins in this family for which functions are known are components of a multiprotein complex used for targeting nucleotide excision repair to specific parts of the genome. Rad23 contains a ubiquitin-like domain that interacts with catalytically active proteasomes and two ubiquitin (Ub)-associated (UBA) sequences that bind Ub. Rad23 interacts with ubiquitinated cellular proteins through the synergistic action of its UBA domains.

In humans, Rad23 complexes with the XPC protein.
