From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a member of a family of membrane-associated E3 ubiquitin ligases containing RING-CH-type zinc finger motifs. Ubiquitination of type II deiodinase by the encoded protein is an important regulatory step in thyroid hormone signalling. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that promotes 'Lys-48'-linked ubiquitination of target proteins, leading to their proteasomal degradation (PubMed:15673284). Promotes ubiquitination of DIO2, leading to its degradation (PubMed:19651899). Promotes ubiquitination of SQLE, leading to its degradation (PubMed:24449766). E3 ubiquitin ligases accept ubiquitin from an E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme in the form of a thioester and then directly transfer the ubiquitin to targeted substrates. May cooperate with UBE2G1 (PubMed:15673284).

- Epilepsy, familial adult myoclonic, 3
Epilepsy, familial adult myoclonic, 3 (FAME3): A form of familial myoclonic epilepsy, a neurologic disorder characterized by cortical hand tremors, myoclonic jerks and occasional generalized or focal seizures with a non-progressive or very slowly progressive disease course. Usually, myoclonic tremor is the presenting symptom, characterized by tremulous finger movements and myoclonic jerks of the limbs increased by action and posture. In a minority of patients, seizures are the presenting symptom. Some patients exhibit mild cognitive impairment. FAME3 inheritance is autosomal dominant. [MIM:613608]
