Western blot analysis of RNF14 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with RNF14 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00009604-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with RNF14 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 4G9 (Cat # H00009604-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
The protein encoded by this gene contains a RING zinc finger, a motif known to be involved in protein-protein interactions. This protein interacts with androgen receptor (AR) and may function as a coactivator that induces AR target gene expression in prostate. A dominant negative mutant of this gene has been demonstrated to inhibit the AR-mediated growth of prostate cancer. This protein also interacts with class III ubiquitin-conjugating enzymes (E2s) and may act as a ubiquitin-ligase (E3) in the ubiquitination of certain nuclear proteins. Five alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding two distinct isoforms have been reported. [provided by RefSeq
