|Synonyms||EXP, KIAA0428, MBNL|
|Function||Mediates pre-mRNA alternative splicing regulation. Acts either as activator or repressor of splicing on specific pre-mRNA targets. Inhibits cardiac troponin-T (TNNT2) pre-mRNA exon inclusion but induces insulin receptor (IR) pre-mRNA exon inclusion in muscle. Antagonizes the alternative splicing activity pattern of CELF proteins. Regulates the TNNT2 exon 5 skipping through competition with U2AF2. Inhibits the formation of the spliceosome A complex on intron 4 of TNNT2 pre-mRNA. Binds to the stem-loop structure within the polypyrimidine tract of TNNT2 intron 4 during spliceosome assembly. Binds to the 5'-YGCU(U/G)Y- 3'consensus sequence. Binds to the IR RNA. Binds to expanded CUG repeat RNA, which folds into a hairpin structure containing GC base pairs and bulged, unpaired U residues.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus Cytoplasm. Cytoplasmic granule. Note=Localized with DDX1, TIAL1 and YBX1 in stress granules upon stress (PubMed:18335541). Localized in the cytoplasm of multinucleated myotubes (PubMed:18335541) Colocalizes with nuclear foci of retained expanded-repeat transcripts in myotubes from patients affected by myotonic dystrophy (PubMed:10970838, PubMed:11590133, PubMed:11929853)|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in cardiac, skeletal muscle and during myoblast differentiation. Weakly expressed in other tissues (at protein level). Expressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas|
