Summaries for TRIM40 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TRIM40 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the tripartite motif (TRIM) protein family. The encoded protein may play a role as a negative regulator against inflammation and carcinogenesis in the gastrointestinal tract. Alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2014]

GeneCards Summary for TRIM40 Gene

TRIM40 (Tripartite Motif Containing 40) is a Protein Coding gene.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRIM40 Gene

  • May function as an E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase of the NEDD8 conjugation pathway. Promotes neddylation of IKBKG/NEMO, stabilizing NFKBIA, and inhibiting of NF-kappaB nuclear translocation and activity.
