|Full Name||insulin-like growth factor 2 mRNA binding protein 1|
|Product Description||Goat polyclonal antibody to IMP1|
|Background||RNA-binding factor that affects mRNA nuclear export, localization, stability and translation. Component of the CRD-mediated complex that promotes MYC mRNA stabilization. Regulates mRNA stability during the integrated cellular stress response (ISR) in stress granules (SGs). Stabilizes the BTRC/FBW1A mRNA from degradation by disrupting miRNA-dependent interaction with AGO2. Identified in a HCV IRES-mediated translation complex, that enhances translation at the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA-replicon via the internal ribosome entry site (IRES), but does not affect 5'cap-dependent translation. Acts as a HIV-1 retrovirus restriction factor that reduces HIV-1 assembly by inhibiting viral RNA packaging, assembly and processing of HIV-1 GAG protein on cellular membranes. Binds to mRNAs in stress granules (SGs). Binds to the stem-loop IV of the 5'-UTR and to the variable region and the poly(U-C) motif of the 3'-UTR of the HCV RNA-replicon. Binds to the 5'-UTR of the insulin-like growth factor 2 (IGF2) mRNA and regulates its subcellular localization and translation. Binds both to the coding region mRNA stability determinant (CRD) and to AU-rich sequences in the 3'-UTR of the MYC and CD44 mRNAs and stabilizes these mRNAs. Binds to the fourth and fifth exons of the oncofetal H19 and neuron-specific TAU mRNAs and regulates their localizations. Binds to the adenine-rich autoregulatory sequence (ARS) 5'-UTR of the PABPC1 mRNA and is involved in its translational repression. The RNA-binding activity to ARS is stimulated by PABPC1. Binds to the coding sequence region of BTRC/FBW1A mRNA and mediates stabilization of BTRC/FBW1A and MYC mRNAs in response to beta-catenin signaling. Binding to RNA employs a cooperative, sequential mechanism of homo- or heterodimerisation. Also involved in growth or survival of lung-cancer cells. Protects the MYC and MDR-1 mRNAs from cleavage by a endoribonuclease, thus prolonging their stabilities (By similarity). Binds to the 3'-UTR axonal localization signal (ALS) of TAU mRNA (By similarity). Binds to a conserved 54-nucleotide element in the 3'-UTR of the beta actin mRNA known as the 'zipcode' (By similarity). Promotes translocation of the beta-actin mRNA to dendrites (By similarity). May act as a regulator of mRNA transport to activated synapses in response to synaptic activity. |
