Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0010522
UniProt IDO60291
Primary gene name(s)MGRN1
Synonym gene name(s)KIAA0544, RNF156
Protein nameE3 ubiquitin-protein ligase MGRN1
Protein functionE3 ubiquitin-protein ligase. Mediates monoubiquitination at multiple sites of TSG101 in the presence of UBE2D1, but not of UBE2G1, nor UBE2H. Plays a role in the regulation of endosome-to-lysosome trafficking. Impairs MC1R- and MC4R-signaling by competing with GNAS-binding to MCRs and inhibiting agonist-induced cAMP production. Does not inhibit ADRB2-signaling. Does not promote MC1R ubiquitination. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:17229889, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19703557, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19737927}.
Subcellular locationEarly endosome {ECO:0000269|PubMed:17229889, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19737927}. Note=The endosomal localization is dependent on the interaction with TSG101.;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 1: Cytoplasm, cytosol. Nucleus. Note=Translocation from the cytosol to the nucleus is seen only in the presence of MC1R and MC4R, but not TBXA2R. Excluded from nucleoli.;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 2: Cytoplasm, cytosol. Nucleus. Note=Translocation from the cytosol to the nucleus is seen only in the presence of MC1R and MC4R, but not TBXA2R. Excluded from nucleoli.;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 3: Cytoplasm, cytosol. Cell membrane.;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 4: Cytoplasm, cytosol. Cell membrane.
