Aliases for RNF5 Gene
External Ids for RNF5 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene contains a RING finger, which is a motif known to be involved in protein-protein interactions. This protein is a membrane-bound ubiquitin ligase. It can regulate cell motility by targeting paxillin ubiquitination and altering the distribution and localization of paxillin in cytoplasm and cell focal adhesions. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for RNF5 Gene
RNF5 (Ring Finger Protein 5, E3 Ubiquitin Protein Ligase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Protein processing in endoplasmic reticulum and Regulation of degradation of deltaF508 CFTR in CF. GO annotations related to this gene include ubiquitin-protein transferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is RNF185.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RNF5 Gene
Has E2-dependent E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity. May function together with E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes UBE2D1/UBCH5A and UBE2D2/UBC4. Mediates ubiquitination of PXN/paxillin and Salmonella type III secreted protein sopA. May be involved in regulation of cell motility and localization of PXN/paxillin. Mediates the Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination of JKAMP thereby regulating JKAMP function by decreasing its association with components of the proteasome and ERAD; the ubiquitination appears to involve E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme UBE2N. Mediates the Lys-48-linked polyubiquitination of TMEM173 at Lys-150 leading to its proteasomal degradation; the ubiquitination occurrs in mitochondria after viral transfection and regulates antiviral responses.
