From NCBI Gene:
This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein which specifically colocalizes and interacts with the serine/threonine protein kinase, receptor-interacting protein (RIP). Zinc finger domains of the encoded protein are required for its interaction with RIP and for inhibition of TNF- and IL1-induced NF-kappa B activation pathways. The encoded protein may also function as an E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which accepts ubiquitin from E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes and transfers it to substrates. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described for this locus but the full-length natures of only some are known. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Isoform 1 acts as an E3 ubiquitin ligase, which accepts ubiquitin from specific E2 ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes, and then transfers it to substrates promoting their degradation by the proteasome. Promotes degradation of TRAF3, TLR4 and TLR9. Contributes to the regulation of antiviral responses. Down-regulates activation of NF-kappa-B, IRF3 activation and IFNB production. Isoform 3 inhibits TNF and IL-1 mediated activation of NF-kappa-B. Promotes TNF and RIP mediated apoptosis.

Gordon Holmes syndrome (GDHS): A disease characterized by cerebellar symptoms and signs of sex steroid deficiency. Clinical features include cerebellar and brain stem atrophy, cerebellar ataxia, hypothalamic LHRH deficiency, hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism, lack of secondary sexual characteristics, and infertility.
