DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Polycomb group RING finger protein 3; AltName: Full=RING finger protein 3A;
FUNCTION: Component of a Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1- like complex, a complex class required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. PcG PRC1 complex acts via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones; it mediates monoubiquitination of histone H2A 'Lys-119', rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility.
SUBUNIT: Component of a PRC1-like complex. Interacts with CBX6, CBX7 and CBX8.
INTERACTION: O95503:CBX6; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-2339807, EBI-3951758; O95931:CBX7; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-2339807, EBI-3923843; Q9HC52:CBX8; NbExp=3; IntAct=EBI-2339807, EBI-712912; Q06587:RING1; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-2339807, EBI-752313; Q99496:RNF2; NbExp=2; IntAct=EBI-2339807, EBI-722416;
SIMILARITY: Contains 1 RING-type zinc finger.

ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on Q3KNV8
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.

-  Orthologous Genes in Other Species
  Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
