Protein Information
Name Lin28a
Synonyms Lin28, Tex17
Function RNA-binding protein that inhibits processing of pre-let- 7 miRNAs and regulates translation of mRNAs that control developmental timing, pluripotency and metabolism (PubMed:17473174, PubMed:18604195, PubMed:18566191, PubMed:18292307, PubMed:19703396, PubMed:23102813, PubMed:24209617). Seems to recognize a common structural G-quartet (G4) feature in its miRNA and mRNA targets (PubMed:26045559). 'Translational enhancer' that drives specific mRNAs to polysomes and increases the efficiency of protein synthesis. Its association with the translational machinery and target mRNAs results in an increased number of initiation events per molecule of mRNA and, indirectly, in mRNA stabilization. Binds IGF2 mRNA, MYOD1 mRNA, ARBP/36B4 ribosomal protein mRNA and its own mRNA. Essential for skeletal muscle differentiation program through the translational up-regulation of IGF2 expression (PubMed:17473174). Suppressor of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis, including that of let-7, miR107, miR- 143 and miR-200c. Specifically binds the miRNA precursors (pre- miRNAs), recognizing an 5'-GGAG-3' motif found in pre-miRNA terminal loop, and recruits ZCCHC11/TUT4 uridylyltransferase. This results in the terminal uridylation of target pre-miRNAs. Uridylated pre-miRNAs fail to be processed by Dicer and undergo degradation. The repression of let-7 expression is required for normal development and contributes to maintain the pluripotent state by preventing let-7-mediated differentiation of embryonic stem cells (PubMed:19703396). Localized to the periendoplasmic reticulum area, binds to a large number of spliced mRNAs and inhibits the translation of mRNAs destined for the ER, reducing the synthesis of transmembrane proteins, ER or Golgi lumen proteins, and secretory proteins (PubMed:23102813). Binds to and enhances the translation of mRNAs for several metabolic enzymes, such as PFKP, PDHA1 or SDHA, increasing glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation. Which, with the let-7 repression may enhance tissue repair in adult tissue (PubMed:24209617).
Cellular Location Cytoplasm {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9H9Z2}. Rough endoplasmic reticulum Nucleus, nucleolus. Note=Predominantly cytoplasmic. Shuttles between the cytoplasm and the nucleus. Localizes to cytoplasmic processing bodies and stress granules (By similarity). Nucleolar localization observed in 10-15% of the nuclei in differentiated myotubes. {ECO:0000250, ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9H9Z2}
Tissue Location Expressed in embryonic stem cells (ES cells), spermatagonia and testis. Expressed in numerous epithelial tissues including the epithelia of the small intestine, the intralobular duct epithelium of the mammary gland and the epithelia of Henle's loop in the kidney and in the collecting duct (at protein level) Also expressed in the myocardium and skeletal muscle (at protein level).

Background

Acts as a 'translational enhancer', driving specific mRNAs to polysomes and thus increasing the efficiency of protein synthesis. Its association with the translational machinery and target mRNAs results in an increased number of initiation events per molecule of mRNA and, indirectly, in stabilizing the mRNAs. Binds IGF2 mRNA, MYOD1 mRNA, ARBP/36B4 ribosomal protein mRNA and its own mRNA. Essential for skeletal muscle differentiation program through the translational up-regulation of IGF2 expression. Acts as a suppressor of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis by specifically binding the precursor let-7 (pre-let-7), a miRNA precursor. Acts by binding pre-let-7 and recruiting ZCCHC11/TUT4 uridylyltransferase, leading to the terminal uridylation of pre- let-7. Uridylated pre-let-7 miRNAs fail to be processed by Dicer and undergo degradation. Degradation of pre-let-7 in embryonic stem (ES) cells contributes to the maintenance of ES cells. In contrast, Lin28a down-regulation in neural stem cells by miR-125, allows the processing of pre-let-7. Specifically recognizes the 5'-GGAG-3' motif in the terminal loop of pre-let-7. Also recognizes and binds non pre-let-7 pre-miRNAs that contain the 5'- GGAG-3' motif in the terminal loop, leading to their terminal uridylation and subsequent degradation.
