Previous GeneCards Identifiers for LRSAM1 Gene
This gene encodes a ring finger protein involved in a variety of functions, including regulation of signaling pathways and cell adhesion, mediation of self-ubiquitylation, and involvement in cargo sorting during receptor endocytosis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified for this gene.

GeneCards Summary for LRSAM1 Gene
LRSAM1 (Leucine Rich Repeat And Sterile Alpha Motif Containing 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with LRSAM1 include Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease, Axonal, Type 2P and Roussy-Levy Hereditary Areflexic Dystasia. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ligase activity and hormone activity. An important paralog of this gene is LRCH4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LRSAM1 Gene
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that mediates monoubiquitination of TSG101 at multiple sites, leading to inactivate the ability of TSG101 to sort endocytic (EGF receptors) and exocytic (HIV-1 viral proteins) cargos (PubMed:15256501). Bacterial recognition protein that defends the cytoplasm from invasive pathogens (PubMed:23245322). Localizes to several intracellular bacterial pathogens and generates the bacteria-associated ubiquitin signal leading to autophagy-mediated intracellular bacteria degradation (xenophagy) (PubMed:23245322, PubMed:25484098).
