RING-type E3 ubiquitin transferase TRIM22; Interferon-induced antiviral protein involved in cell innate immunity. The antiviral activity could in part be mediated by TRIM22-dependent ubiquitination of viral proteins. Plays a role in restricting the replication of HIV-1, encephalomyocarditis virus (EMCV) and hepatitis B virus (HBV). Acts as a transcriptional repressor of HBV core promoter. May have E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity; Minor histocompatibility antigens
Synonyms: TRIM22, TRIM22p, hTRIM22, C9J060, C9JIU5 ...
