Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0006811
UniProt IDQ9H4P4
Primary gene name(s)RNF41
Synonym gene name(s)FLRF, NRDP1
Protein nameE3 ubiquitin-protein ligase NRDP1
Protein functionActs as E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase and regulates the degradation of target proteins. Polyubiquitinates MYD88. Negatively regulates MYD88-dependent production of proinflammatory cytokines. Can promote TRIF-dependent production of type I interferon and inhibits infection with vesicular stomatitis virus, By similarity. Promotes also activation of TBK1 and IRF3. Involved in the ubiquitination of erythropoietin, EPO and interleukin-3, IL-3 receptors. Thus, through maintaining basal levels of cytokine receptors, RNF41 is involved in the control of hematopoietic progenitor cell differentiation into myeloerythroid lineages, By similarity. Contributes to the maintenance of steady-state ERBB3 levels by mediating its growth factor-independent degradation. Involved in the degradation of the inhibitor of apoptosis BIRC6 and thus is an important regulator of cell death by promoting apoptosis. Acts also as a PARK2 modifier that accelerates its degradation, resulting in a reduction of PARK2 activity, influencing the balance of intracellular redox state. The RNF41-PARK2 pathway regulates autophagosome-lysosome fusion during late mitophagy. Mitophagy is a selective form of autophagy necessary for mitochondrial quality control, PubMed:24949970. {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q8BH75, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12411582, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14765125, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15632191, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17210635, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18541373, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19483718, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24949970}.
