Previous GeneCards Identifiers 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) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RNF5 include hereditary choroidal atrophy and partial central choroid dystrophy. 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 ligase activity and 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.
