UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRIM56 Gene
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that mediates Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination of TMEM173/STING, thereby playing a key role in innate immunity. TMEM173/STING Lys-63-linked ubiquitination activates the production of type I interferon IFN-beta following detection of pathogen- and host-derived double-stranded DNA (By similarity).
