|Other Names||Poly(rC)-binding protein 2, Alpha-CP2, Heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein E2, hnRNP E2, PCBP2|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Single-stranded nucleic acid binding protein that binds preferentially to oligo dC. Major cellular poly(rC)-binding protein. Binds also poly(rU). Negatively regulates cellular antiviral responses mediated by MAVS signaling (PubMed:19881509). It acts as an adapter between MAVS and the E3 ubiquitin ligase ITCH, therefore triggering MAVS ubiquitination and degradation (PubMed:19881509).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Loosely bound in the nucleus. May shuttle between the nucleus and the cytoplasm|
|Tissue Location||Detected in all tissues examined.|

The protein encoded by this gene appears to bemultifunctional. Along with PCBP-1 and hnRNPK, it is one of themajor cellular poly(rC)-binding proteins. The encoded proteincontains three K-homologous (KH) domains which may be involved inRNA binding. Together with PCBP-1, this protein also functions as atranslational coactivator of poliovirus RNA via a sequence-specificinteraction with stem-loop IV of the IRES, promoting poliovirus RNAreplication by binding to its 5'-terminal cloverleaf structure. Ithas also been implicated in translational control of the15-lipoxygenase mRNA, human papillomavirus type 16 L2 mRNA, andhepatitis A virus RNA. The encoded protein is also suggested toplay a part in formation of a sequence-specific alpha-globin mRNPcomplex which is associated with alpha-globin mRNA stability. Thismultiexon structural mRNA is thought to be retrotransposed togenerate PCBP-1, an intronless gene with functions similar to thatof PCBP2. This gene and PCBP-1 have paralogous genes (PCBP3 andPCBP4) which are thought to have arisen as a result of duplicationevents of entire genes. Thsi gene also has two processedpseudogenes (PCBP2P1 and PCBP2P2). Multiple transcript variantsencoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
