This gene encodes a member of the RING zinc finger protein family found in striated muscle and iris. The product of this gene is an E3 ubiquitin ligase that localizes to the Z-line and M-line lattices of myofibrils. This protein plays an important role in the atrophy of skeletal and cardiac muscle and is required for the degradation of myosin heavy chain proteins, myosin light chain, myosin binding protein, and for muscle-type creatine kinase.

GeneCards Summary for TRIM63 Gene
TRIM63 (Tripartite Motif Containing 63, E3 Ubiquitin Protein Ligase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRIM63 include human herpesvirus 8. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Antigen processing- Ubiquitination and Proteasome degradation. GO annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is MID1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRIM63 Gene
E3 ubiquitin ligase. Mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of CKM, GMEB1 and HIBADH. Regulates the proteasomal degradation of muscle proteins under amino acid starvation, where muscle protein is catabolized to provide other organs with amino acids. Inhibits de novo skeletal muscle protein synthesis under amino acid starvation. Regulates proteasomal degradation of cardiac troponin I/TNNI3 and probably of other sarcomeric-associated proteins. May play a role in striated muscle atrophy and hypertrophy by regulating an anti-hypertrophic PKC-mediated signaling pathway. May regulate the organization of myofibrils through TTN in muscle cells.
