Protein Information
Name ZC3HAV1
Synonyms ZC3HDC2
Function Antiviral protein which inhibits the replication of viruses by recruiting the cellular RNA degradation machineries to degrade the viral mRNAs. Binds to a ZAP-responsive element (ZRE) present in the target viral mRNA, recruits cellular poly(A)- specific ribonuclease PARN to remove the poly(A) tail, and the 3'- 5' exoribonuclease complex exosome to degrade the RNA body from the 3'-end. It also recruits the decapping complex DCP1-DCP2 through RNA helicase p72 (DDX17) to remove the cap structure of the viral mRNA to initiate its degradation from the 5'-end. Its target viruses belong to families which include retroviridae: human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), moloney and murine leukemia virus (MoMLV) and xenotropic MuLV-related virus (XMRV), filoviridae: ebola virus (EBOV) and marburg virus (MARV), togaviridae: sindbis virus (SINV) and Ross river virus (RRV). Specifically targets the multiply spliced but not unspliced or singly spliced HIV-1 mRNAs for degradation. Isoform 1 is a more potent viral inhibitor than isoform 2. Isoform 2 acts as a positive regulator of DDX58/RIG-I signaling resulting in activation of the downstream effector IRF3 leading to the expression of type I IFNs and IFN stimulated genes (ISGs).
Cellular Location Isoform 1: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Localizes in the cytoplasm at steady state, but shuttles between nucleus and cytoplasm in a XPO1-dependent manner

ZC3HAV1 Antibody: The zinc finger antiviral protein (ZC3HAV1) is a CCCH type zinc finger protein that induces an innate immunity to infections by retrovirus by preventing the accumulation of viral RNAs in the cytoplasm and recruits the RNA processing exosome to degrade target RNAs, thereby inhibiting virus replication. ZC3HAV1 is localized in the cytoplasm at steady state, but shuttles between nucleus and cytoplasm in a XPO1-dependent manner. ZAP is a direct target gene of IRF3 action in cellular antiviral responses.
