Human Gene TRIM8 (ENST00000643721.1) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens tripartite motif containing 8 (TRIM8), transcript variant 1, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_030912)
RefSeq Summary (NM_030912): This gene encodes a member of the tripartite motif (TRIM) protein family. Based on similarities to other proteins, the encoded protein is suspected to be an E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase. Regulation of this gene may be altered in some cancers. Mutations resulting in a truncated protein product have been observed in early-onset epileptic encephalopathy (EOEE). [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2016].

DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Probable E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase TRIM8; EC=6.3.2.-; AltName: Full=Glioblastoma-expressed RING finger protein; AltName: Full=RING finger protein 27; AltName: Full=Tripartite motif-containing protein 8;
FUNCTION: Probable E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which may promote proteasomal degradation of SOCS1 (By similarity).
PATHWAY: Protein modification; protein ubiquitination.
SUBUNIT: Homodimer. Interacts with SOCS1 (via) SH2 domain and SOCS box (By similarity).
INTERACTION: Self; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-2340370, EBI-2340370;
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Widely expressed.
DOMAIN: The coiled coil domain is required for homodimerization.
DOMAIN: The region immediately C-terminal to the RING motif is sufficient to mediate the interaction with SOCS1 (By similarity).
SIMILARITY: Belongs to the TRIM/RBCC family.
SIMILARITY: Contains 2 B box-type zinc fingers.
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 RING-type zinc finger.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q9BZR9
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
