|Function||Component of the RNF20/40 E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complex that mediates monoubiquitination of 'Lys-120' of histone H2B (H2BK120ub1). H2BK120ub1 gives a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation and is also prerequisite for histone H3 'Lys-4' and 'Lys-79' methylation (H3K4me and H3K79me, respectively). It thereby plays a central role in histone code and gene regulation. The RNF20/40 complex forms a H2B ubiquitin ligase complex in cooperation with the E2 enzyme UBE2A or UBE2B; reports about the cooperation with UBE2E1/UBCH are contradictory. Required for transcriptional activation of Hox genes.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed. Expressed at higher level in testis, heart and pancreas, while it is only weakly expressed in lung, skeletal muscle and small intestine|

The protein encoded by this gene contains a RING finger, amotif known to be involved in protein-protein and protein-DNAinteractions. This protein was reported to interact with the tumorsuppressor protein RB1. Studies of the rat counterpart suggestedthat this protein may function as an E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase,and facilitate the ubiquitination and degradation of syntaxin 1,which is an essential component of the neurotransmitter releasemachinery.
