Predicted to enable ubiquitin protein ligase activity. Involved in positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Predicted to be located in cytosol and nucleoplasm. Predicted to be active in cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; ear; genitourinary system; and retina. Orthologous to human RNF187 (ring finger protein 187). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
Ubiquitous expression in adrenal adult (RPKM 227.2), whole brain E14.5 (RPKM 200.3) and 28 other tissues See more

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
