Protein Information
Synonyms MIR, RNF178
Function E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that mediates ubiquitination of CD86 and MHC class II proteins, such as HLA-DR alpha and beta, and promotes their subsequent endocytosis and sorting to lysosomes via multivesicular bodies. May also promote ubiquitination and endocytosis of TFRC and FAS.
Cellular Location Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Lysosome membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Early endosome membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein
Tissue Location Broadly expressed. Present in immature dendritic cells (at protein level).

MARCH8 Antibody: MARCH8 (c-MIR) is a novel E3 ubiquitin ligase designated as the modulator of immune recognition (MIR) family, whose catalytic domain is a variant RING domain (RING-CH domain). MARCH8 was found as a functional and structural homolog of KSHV MIR1 and MIR2. MARCH8 targets B7-2 to lysosomal degradation and down-regulates the B7-2 surface expression through ubiquitination of its cytoplasmic tail. Furthermore, MARCH8 has been shown to down-regulate the expression of transferrin receptor and Fas, an important molecule for the induction of apoptosis. MARCH8 is the first example of an E3 ubiquitin ligase that is capable of inhibiting MHC II expression. Recent findings suggest that MARCH8 may regulate immune responses by promoting ubiquitination of MHC-II and CD86, leading to their subsequent endocytosis and lysosomal degradation.
