Chemical compound and disease context of TRIM37


Biological context of TRIM37

  • Polyubiquitination was decreased in a mutant protein with disrupted RING domain (Cys35Ser;Cys36Ser) and in the Leu76Pro mutant protein, a disease-associated missense mutation affecting the TRIM domain of TRIM37 [9].
  • We here characterised TRIM37 further by mapping the transcription initiation site and promoter region as well as by analysing splice variants [2].
  • Here we have characterized the genomic structure of the TRIM37 gene, which has 24 exons spanning approximately 109 kb of genomic DNA [10].
  • In the common critical region, the conserved haplotypes were different in MKS and MUL patients [11].
  • The results showed a dramatic change in glucose and lipid metabolism with age in MUL subjects [7].
