Reaction Comment Organism Reaction ID
S-ubiquitinyl-[E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine + [E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine = [E1 ubiquitin-activating enzyme]-L-cysteine + S-ubiquitinyl-[E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme]-L-cysteine E2 enzymes autoubiquitinate both their active sites cysteine, described for this enzyme and lysine residues Homo sapiens
