Summaries for RNF139 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for RNF139 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a multi-membrane spanning protein containing a RING-H2 finger. This protein is located in the endoplasmic reticulum, and has been shown to possess ubiquitin ligase activity. This gene was found to be interrupted by a t(3:8) translocation in a family with hereditary renal and non-medulary thyroid cancer. Studies of the Drosophila counterpart suggested that this protein may interact with tumor suppressor protein VHL, as well as with COPS5/JAB1, a protein responsible for the degradation of tumor suppressor CDKN1B/P27KIP.

GeneCards Summary for RNF139 Gene

RNF139 (Ring Finger Protein 139) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RNF139 include renal cell carcinoma and hereditary renal cell carcinoma. Among its related pathways are Regulation of Cholesterol Biosynthesis by SREBP (SREBF). GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity and ligase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RNF145.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RNF139 Gene

  • E3-ubiquitin ligase; acts as a negative regulator of the cell proliferation through mechanisms involving G2/M arrest and cell death. Required for MHC class I ubiquitination in cells expressing the cytomegalovirus protein US2 before dislocation from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Affects SREBP processing by hindering the SREBP/SCAP complex translocation from the ER to the Golgi, thereby reducing SREBF2 target gene expression. Required for INSIG1 ubiquitination. May be required for EIF3 complex ubiquitination. May function as a signaling receptor.

    • Interacts with MHC class I and HM13 (PubMed:19720873, PubMed:25239945). Interacts with VHL. Component of SCAP/SREBP complex composed of SREBF2, SCAP and RNF139; the complex hampers the interaction between SCAP and SEC24B, thereby reducing SREBF2 proteolytic processing. Interacts with SREBF2 (via C-terminal domain). Interacts with SCAP; the interaction inhibits the interaction of SCAP with SEC24B and hampering the ER to Golgi transport of the SCAP/SREBP complex. Interacts with SEC24B. Interacts with INSIG1 and INSIG2. Interacts with EIF3F and EIF3H; the interaction leads to protein translation inhibitions in a ubiquitination-dependent manner (PubMed:12032852, PubMed:19706601, PubMed:20068067). Interacts with XBP1 isoform 1; the interaction induces ubiquitination and degradation of XBP1 isoform 1 (PubMed:25239945).

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot

RN139_HUMAN
  • Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) [MIM:144700]: Renal cell carcinoma is a heterogeneous group of sporadic or hereditary carcinoma derived from cells of the proximal renal tubular epithelium. It is subclassified into clear cell renal carcinoma (non-papillary carcinoma), papillary renal cell carcinoma, chromophobe renal cell carcinoma, collecting duct carcinoma with medullary carcinoma of the kidney, and unclassified renal cell carcinoma. Clear cell renal cell carcinoma is the most common subtype. Note=The disease may be caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry. A chromosomal aberration involving RNF139 has been found in a lymphoblastoid cell line established from a family with renal cell carcinoma and thyroid carcinoma. Translocation (3;8)(q14.2;q24.1) with FHIT. RNF139 is found to be fused to FHIT and disrupted within the sterol-sensing domain. In contrast, the FHIT coding region is maintained and expressed. Sporadic cases of renal carcinoma, where an acquired mutation in RNF139 results in the duplication of 12 nucleotides in the 5-UTR, has also been identified.
