Ubiquitin-protein ligase which is a core component of several complexes mainly involved pre-mRNA splicing and DNA repair. Required for pre-mRNA splicing as component of the spliceosome (PubMed:28076346, PubMed:28502770, PubMed:29301961, PubMed:29360106, PubMed:30705154). Core component of the PRP19C/Prp19 complex/NTC/Nineteen complex which is part of the spliceosome and participates in its assembly, its remodeling and is required for its activity. During assembly of the spliceosome, mediates ‘Lys-63’-linked polyubiquitination of the U4 spliceosomal protein PRPF3. Ubiquitination of PRPF3 allows its recognition by the U5 component PRPF8 and stabilizes the U4/U5/U6 tri-snRNP spliceosomal complex (PubMed:20595234). Recruited to RNA polymerase II C-terminal domain (CTD) and the pre-mRNA, it may also couple the transcriptional and spliceosomal machineries (PubMed:21536736). The XAB2 complex, which contains PRPF19, is also involved in pre-mRNA splicing, transcription and transcription-coupled repair (PubMed:17981804). Beside its role in pre-mRNA splicing PRPF19, as part of the PRP19-CDC5L complex, plays a role in the DNA damage response/DDR. It is recruited to the sites of DNA damage by the RPA complex where PRPF19 directly ubiquitinates RPA1 and RPA2. ‘Lys-63’-linked polyubiquitination of the RPA complex allows the recruitment of the ATR-ATRIP complex and the activation of ATR, a master regulator of the DNA damage response (PubMed:24332808). May also play a role in DNA double-strand break (DSB) repair by recruiting the repair factor SETMAR to altered DNA (PubMed:18263876). As part of the PSO4 complex may also be involved in the DNA interstrand cross-links/ICLs repair process (PubMed:16223718). In addition, may also mediate ‘Lys-48’-linked polyubiquitination of substrates and play a role in proteasomal degradation (PubMed:11435423). May play a role in the biogenesis of lipid droplets (By similarity). May play a role in neural differentiation possibly through its function as part of the spliceosome (By similarity). {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q99KP6, ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9JMJ4, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11082287, ECO:0000269|PubMed:11435423, ECO:0000269|PubMed:12960389, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15660529, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16223718, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16332694, ECO:0000269|PubMed:16388800, ECO:0000269|PubMed:17349974, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18263876, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21536736, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24332808, ECO:0000269|PubMed:28076346, ECO:0000269|PubMed:28502770, ECO:0000269|PubMed:29301961, ECO:0000269|PubMed:29360106, ECO:0000269|PubMed:30705154, ECO:0000303|PubMed:17981804, ECO:0000303|PubMed:20595234}.
