Zinc and ring finger 1
This gene encodes an E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase that plays a role in neural-cell differentiation. Overexpression of this gene causes neurite-like elongation. The encoded protein contains both a zinc finger and a RING finger motif and is localized in the endosome/lysosome compartment, indicating that it may be involved in ubiquitin-mediated protein modification, and in synaptic vessicle membranes in neurons.

RESULTS: rs17684886 in ZNRF1 and rs599019 near COLEC12 were associated with diabetic retinopathy (OR 0.812, p = 0.0039 and OR 0.835, p = 0.0116, respectively) and with the severity of diabetic retinopathy (p = 0.0365 and p = 0.0252, respectively, for trend analysis).

The results showed that cases of PAX5 alteration can cluster using unsupervised clustering algorithms, and one gene, zinc and ring finger 1 (ZNRF1), was characterized and validated by quantitative RT-PCR.

Here, we describe a phosphorylation-based reverse myristoyl switch for mammalian ZNRF2, and show that this E3 ubiquitin ligase and its sister protein ZNRF1 regulate the Na(+)/K(+) pump (Na(+)/K(+)ATPase).
These phenotypic changes are required for efficient degeneration/regeneration. We previously identified ZNRF1 as an E3 ubiquitin ligase containing a RING finger motif, whose expression is upregulated in the Schwann cells following nerve injury.
