Interaction with CUL9 is required to inhibit CUL9 activity and ubiquitination of BIRC5 (PubMed:24793696). Core component of a Cul7-RING ubiquitin-protein ligase with FBXW8, which mediates ubiquitination and consequent degradation of target proteins such as GORASP1, IRS1 and MAP4K1/HPK1 (PubMed:21572988, PubMed:24362026).

Highly expressed in fetal kidney and adult skeletal muscle. Also abundant in fetal brain, as well as in adult pancreas, kidney, placenta and heart. Detected in trophoblasts, lymphoblasts, osteoblasts, chondrocytes and skin fibroblasts.
Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Golgi apparatus. Colocalizes with FBXW8 at the Golgi apparatus in neurons; localization to Golgi is mediated by OBSL1. During mitosis, localizes to the mitotic apparatus (PubMed:24793695). CCDC8 is required for centrosomal location (PubMed:24793695).
