tripartite motif containing 22


ENTREZID: 10346 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 11p15.4

OMIM: 607898


Summary Entrez
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. This protein localizes to the cytoplasm and its expression is induced by interferon. The protein down-regulates transcription from the HIV-1 LTR promoter region, suggesting that function of this protein may be to mediate interferon’s antiviral effects. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]
