Ubiquitin ligase that mediates monoubiquitination of 'Lys-91' of histone H4 (H4K91ub1), in response to DNA damage. Protects cells exposed to DNA-damaging agents. The exact role of H4K91ub1 in DNA damage response is still unclear but it may function as a licensing signal for additional histone H4 post-translational modifications such as H4 'Lys-20' methylation (H4K20me). Involved in the recruitment of 53BP1/TP53BP1 to sites of DNA damage by mediating H4K91ub1 formation.
Protein modification; protein ubiquitination.
Belongs to the Deltex family. Contains 1 RING-type zinc finger.
