Entrez Gene Summary for RNF168 Gene

  • This gene encodes an E3 ubiquitin ligase protein that contains a RING finger, a motif present in a variety of functionally distinct proteins and known to be involved in protein-DNA and protein-protein interactions. The protein is involved in DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair. Mutations in this gene result in Riddle syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for RNF168 Gene

RNF168 (Ring Finger Protein 168, E3 Ubiquitin Protein Ligase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RNF168 include riddle syndrome. GO annotations related to this gene include chromatin binding and histone binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RNF168 Gene

  • E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase required for accumulation of repair proteins to sites of DNA damage. Acts with UBE2N/UBC13 to amplify the RNF8-dependent histone ubiquitination. Recruited to sites of DNA damage at double-strand breaks (DSBs) by binding to ubiquitinated histone H2A and H2AX and amplifies the RNF8-dependent H2A ubiquitination, promoting the formation of Lys-63-linked ubiquitin conjugates. This leads to concentrate ubiquitinated histones H2A and H2AX at DNA lesions to the threshold required for recruitment of TP53BP1 and BRCA1. Also recruited at DNA interstrand cross-links (ICLs) sites and promotes accumulation of Lys-63-linked ubiquitination of histones H2A and H2AX, leading to recruitment of FAAP20/C1orf86 and Fanconi anemia (FA) complex, followed by interstrand cross-link repair. H2A ubiquitination also mediates the ATM-dependent transcriptional silencing at regions flanking DSBs in cis, a mechanism to avoid collision between transcription and repair intermediates. Also involved in class switch recombination in immune system, via its role in regulation of DSBs repair. Following DNA damage, promotes the ubiquitination and degradation of JMJD2A/KDM4A in collaboration with RNF8, leading to unmask H4K20me2 mark and promote the recruitment of TP53BP1 at DNA damage sites. Not able to initiate Lys-63-linked ubiquitination in vitro; possibly due to partial occlusion of the UBE2N/UBC13-binding region. Catalyzes monoubiquitination of Lys-13 and Lys-15 of nucleosomal histone H2A (H2AK13Ub and H2AK15Ub, respectively).

RN168_HUMAN :
  • Q8IYW5
Domain:
  • The MIU motif (motif interacting with ubiquitin) mediates the interaction with both Lys-48- and Lys-63-linked ubiquitin chains (PubMed:19500350). The UMI motif mediates interaction with ubiquitin with a preference for Lys-63-linked ubiquitin (PubMed:21041483). The specificity for different types of ubiquitin is mediated by juxtaposition of ubiquitin-binding motifs (MIU and UMI motifs) with LR motifs (LRMs) (PubMed:22742833).
Family:
  • Belongs to the RNF168 family.
Similarity:
  • Contains 1 RING-type zinc finger.
