Gene Family: CTLH complex

Also known as : "C-terminal to LisH complex", "Muskelin/RanBP9/CTLH complex", "GID complex", "MRCTLH complex"

CTLH complex:: The yeast homologue of this complex (the GID complex) functions as an E3 ubiquitin ligase that targets enzymes of the gluconeogenesis pathway. While the CTLH complex E3 ubiquitin ligase activity and substrates still remain to be characterized, the high level of conservation between the complexes in yeast and mammals infers that the CTLH complex could also serve to promote the degradation of specific substrates through ubiquitination. With the exception of ARMC8, a striking feature is the shared presence of LisH and CTLH domains amongst the complex members. [Source: Salemi et al, 2017]
