Previous GeneCards Identifiers for RNF31 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene 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 encoded protein is the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase component of the linear ubiquitin chain assembly complex. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for RNF31 Gene
RNF31 (Ring Finger Protein 31) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RNF31 include Polyglucosan Body Myopathy 1 With Or Without Immunodeficiency and Otulipenia. Among its related pathways are TNF signaling (REACTOME) and Protein ubiquitination. GO annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and ubiquitin protein ligase binding. An important paralog of this gene is ENSG00000259529.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RNF31 Gene
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase component of the LUBAC complex which conjugates linear (Met-1-linked) polyubiquitin chains to substrates and plays a key role in NF-kappa-B activation and regulation of inflammation (PubMed:17006537, PubMed:19136968, PubMed:20005846, PubMed:21455173, PubMed:21455180, PubMed:21455181, PubMed:22863777). LUBAC conjugates linear polyubiquitin to IKBKG and RIPK1 and is involved in activation of the canonical NF-kappa-B and the JNK signaling pathways (PubMed:17006537, PubMed:19136968, PubMed:20005846, PubMed:21455173, PubMed:21455180, PubMed:21455181, PubMed:22863777). Linear ubiquitination mediated by the LUBAC complex interferes with TNF-induced cell death and thereby prevents inflammation (PubMed:21455173). LUBAC is proposed to be recruited to the TNF-R1 signaling complex (TNF-RSC) following polyubiquitination of TNF-RSC components by BIRC2 and/or BIRC3 and to conjugate linear polyubiquitin to IKBKG and possibly other components contributing to the stability of the complex (PubMed:20005846). Together with otulin, the LUBAC complex regulates the canonical Wnt signaling during angiogenesis. Binds polyubiquitin of different linkage types (PubMed:23708998).
