TRIM21 in Human PBMCs. TRIM21 was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) stimulated for 8 hours with 20 ng/mL of Recombinant Human IFN-gamma (Catalog # 285-IF) using Mouse Anti-Human TRIM21 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6219) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 493-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (green; Catalog # NL009) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

TRIM21 (Tripartite motif-containing protein 21; also Ro(SS-A), 52 kDa Ro Protein/Ro52, and RING finger protein 81) is a 52-56 kDa member of the RING finger-B-box-coiled-coil family of proteins. It is an E3 ligase that is found in both nucleus and cytoplasm, where it is often associated with microtubules. TRIM21 ubiquitinates select proteins. In B cells, it targets the Fc fragment of misfolded IgG, providing QC on its production. In macrophages, it acts in a nondegradative manner on IRF8, promoting innate immunity. Human TRIM21 is 475 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one E3 ligase RING finger domain (aa 16-55), a B-Box type zinc-finger region (aa 92-123), a coiled-coil region (aa 128-238) and a C-terminal SPRY/B30.2 Ig binding domain (aa 268-465). TRIM21 is reported to form trimers. Over aa 195‑293, human TRIM21 exhibits 72% aa identity with mouse TRIM21.
