Protein Information
Name ZC3H12A (HGNC:26259)
Function Bifunctional enzyme with both endoribonuclease and deubiquitinase activities involved in various biological functions such as cellular inflammatory response and immune homeostasis, glial differentiation of neuroprogenitor cells, cell death of cardiomyocytes, adipogenesis and angiogenesis. Functions as an endoribonuclease involved in mRNA decay (PubMed:19909337). Modulates the inflammatory response by promoting the degradation of a set of translationally active cytokine-induced inflammation- related mRNAs, such as IL6 and IL12B, during the early phase of inflammation (PubMed:26320658). Prevents aberrant T-cell-mediated immune reaction by degradation of multiple mRNAs controlling T- cell activation, such as those encoding cytokines (IL6 and IL2), cell surface receptors (ICOS, TNFRSF4 and TNFR2) and transcription factor (REL) (By similarity). Self regulates by destabilizing its own mRNA (By similarity). Cleaves mRNA harboring a stem-loop (SL), often located in their 3'-UTRs, during the early phase of inflammation in a helicase UPF1-dependent manner (PubMed:19909337, PubMed:26320658, PubMed:26134560, PubMed:22561375). Plays a role in the inhibition of microRNAs (miRNAs) biogenesis (PubMed:22055188). Cleaves the terminal loop of a set of precursor miRNAs (pre-miRNAs) important for the regulation of the inflammatory response leading to their degradation, and thus preventing the biosynthesis of mature miRNAs (PubMed:22055188). Plays also a role in promoting angiogenesis in response to inflammatory cytokines by inhibiting the production of antiangiogenic microRNAs via its anti-dicer RNase activity (PubMed:24048733). Functions as a deubiquitinase that affects the overall ubiquitination of cellular proteins (By similarity). Possesses deubiquitinase activity that specifically cleaves 'Lys- 48'- and 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitin chains on TNF receptor- associated factors (TRAFs), preventing JNK and NF-kappa-B signaling pathway activation, and hence negatively regulates macrophage-mediated inflammatory response and immune homeostasis (By similarity). Deubiquitinates also the transcription factor HIF1A, probably leading to its stabilization and nuclear import, thereby positively regulating the expression of proangiogenic HIF1A-targeted genes (PubMed:24048733). Prevents stress granule (SGs) formation and promotes macrophage apoptosis under stress conditions, including arsenite-induced oxidative stress, heat shock, and energy deprivation, which may be dependent on its deubiquitinase activity (By similarity). Plays a role in the regulation of macrophage polarization; promotes IL4-induced polarization of macrophages M1 into anti-inflammatory M2 state, depending on both endoribonuclease and deubiquitinase activities (By similarity). May also act as a transcription factor that regulates the expression of multiple genes involved in inflammatory response, angiogenesis, adipogenesis and apoptosis (PubMed:16574901, PubMed:18364357). Functions as a positive regulator of glial differentiation of neuroprogenitor cells through an amyloid precursor protein (APP)-dependent signaling pathway (PubMed:19185603). Attenuates septic myocardial contractile dysfunction in response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) by reducing I-kappa-B-kinase (IKK)-mediated NF-kappa-B activation, and hence myocardial proinflammatory cytokine production (By similarity).
Cellular Location Nucleus. Cytoplasm Cytoplasm, P-body. Rough endoplasmic reticulum membrane {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q5D1E7}; Peripheral membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q5D1E7}; Cytoplasmic side {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q5D1E7}. Cytoplasmic granule {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q5D1E7}. Note=Predominantly localized in the cytoplasm. Colocalizes with GW182 on many granule-like structures, probably corresponding to cytoplasmic GW bodies (GWBs), also called processing bodies (P bodies). Colocalizes with calnexin on the surface of the rough endoplasmic reticulum (RER) membrane and with translationally active polysomes (By similarity). Colocalizes with ZC3H12D in cytoplasmic mRNA processing P-body, also known as GW bodies (GWBs) (PubMed:22055188, PubMed:26134560).
Tissue Location Expressed in heart, placenta, spleen, kidney, liver and lung (PubMed:19909337). Expressed in leukocytes (PubMed:19909337). Expressed in monocyte (PubMed:16574901)
