Protein Information
Name UPF3A
Synonyms RENT3A, UPF3
Function Involved in nonsense-mediated decay (NMD) of mRNAs containing premature stop codons by associating with the nuclear exon junction complex (EJC) and serving as link between the EJC core and NMD machinery. Recruits UPF2 at the cytoplasmic side of the nuclear envelope and the subsequent formation of an UPF1-UPF2- UPF3 surveillance complex (including UPF1 bound to release factors at the stalled ribosome) is believed to activate NMD. However, UPF3A is shown to be only marginally active in NMD as compared to UPF3B. Binds spliced mRNA upstream of exon-exon junctions. In vitro, weakly stimulates translation.
Cellular Location Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Shuttling between the nucleus and the cytoplasm
Tissue Location Isoform 1 is strongly expressed in testis, uterus, muscle, fetal brain and spinal cord. Isoform 2 is strongly expressed in fetal brain and spinal cord

This gene encodes a protein that is part of apost-splicing multiprotein complex involved in both mRNA nuclearexport and mRNA surveillance. The encoded protein is one of twofunctional homologs to yeast Upf3p. mRNA surveillance detectsexported mRNAs with truncated open reading frames and initiatesnonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD). When translation ends upstreamfrom the last exon-exon junction, this triggers NMD to degrademRNAs containing premature stop codons. This protein binds to themRNA and remains bound after nuclear export, acting as anucleocytoplasmic shuttling protein. It forms with Y14 a complexthat binds specifically 20 nt upstream of exon-exon junctions. Thisgene is located on the long arm of chromosome 13. Two splicevariants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
