This gene encodes a member of a family of proteins with two K homology (KH) RNA-binding domains and a C-terminal RING-finger domain. The protein interacts with mRNA via the KH domains, and the protein shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm. Polymorphisms in this gene may contribute to hypertension.

GeneCards Summary for MEX3C Gene
MEX3C (Mex-3 RNA Binding Family Member C) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MEX3D.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MEX3C Gene
E3 ubiquitin ligase responsible for the post-transcriptional regulation of common HLA-A allotypes. Binds to the 3 UTR of HLA-A2 mRNA, and regulates its levels by promoting mRNA decay. RNA binding is sufficient to prevent translation, but ubiquitin ligase activity is required for mRNA degradation.
