tripartite motif containing 32

From NCBI Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the tripartite motif (TRIM) family. The TRIM motif includes three zinc-binding domains, a RING, a B-box type 1 and a B-box type 2, and a coiled-coil region. The protein localizes to cytoplasmic bodies. The protein has also been localized to the nucleus, where it interacts with the activation domain of the HIV-1 Tat protein. The Tat protein activates transcription of HIV-1 genes.

Has an E3 ubiquitin ligase activity. Ubiquitinates DTNBP1 (dysbindin) and promotes its degradation. May ubiquitinate BBS2. May play a significant role in mediating the biological activity of the HIV-1 Tat protein in vivo. Binds specifically to the activation domain of HIV-1 Tat and can also interact with the HIV-2 and EIAV Tat proteins in vivo.

- Bardet-Biedl syndrome 11
- Sarcotubular myopathy
Bardet-Biedl syndrome 11 (BBS11): A syndrome characterized by usually severe pigmentary retinopathy, early-onset obesity, polydactyly, hypogenitalism, renal malformation and mental retardation. Secondary features include diabetes mellitus, hypertension and congenital heart disease. Bardet-Biedl syndrome inheritance is autosomal recessive, but three mutated alleles (two at one locus, and a third at a second locus) may be required for clinical manifestation of some forms of the disease. [MIM:615988]
Muscular dystrophy, limb-girdle, autosomal recessive 8 (LGMDR8): An autosomal recessive degenerative myopathy characterized by pelvic girdle, shoulder girdle and quadriceps muscle weakness. Clinical phenotype and severity are highly variable. Disease progression is slow and most patients remain ambulatory into the sixth decade of life. [MIM:254110]
