Previous GeneCards Identifiers for RNF111 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a nuclear RING-domain containing E3 ubiquitin ligase. This protein interacts with the transforming growth factor (TGF) -beta/NODAL signaling pathway by promoting the ubiquitination and proteosomal degradation of negative regulators, like SMAD proteins, and thereby enhances TGF-beta target-gene transcription. As a modulator of the nodal signaling cascade, this gene plays a critical role in the induction of mesoderm during embryonic development. Alternative splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RNF111 Gene
Acts in the NODAL pathway of mesoderm patterning during embryonic development. Acts downstream AXIN1 as an E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which promotes the ubiquitination of inhibitory SMADs such as SMAD7, induces their proteasomal degradation and thereby enhances the transcriptional activity of TGF-beta and BMP. Activates Smad3/Smad4-dependent transcription by triggering signal-induced SnoN degradation. Associates with UBE2D2 as an E2 enzyme.
