功能Isoform Alpha is a retrovirus restriction factor, which mediates species-specific, early block to retrovirus infection. Targets retroviral capsid soon after entry into the cell, and prevents reverse transcription of the virus RNA genome. Isoform Alpha trimers may make multiple contacts with the hexameric lattice of CA proteins which constitute the surface of retrovirion core, and somehow inactivate the virus. Restricts efficiently infection by N-MLV, but not HIV-1. May have E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity.
通路Protein modification; protein ubiquitination.
序列相似性Belongs to the TRIM/RBCC family. Contains 1 B box-type zinc finger. Contains 1 B30.2/SPRY domain. Contains 1 RING-type zinc finger.
结构域The RING-type zinc finger domain mediates binding to an E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme.
翻译后修饰Ubiquitinates itself in a RING finger- and UBE2D2-dependent manner (in vitro).
