(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID26986
Official gene symbolPABPC1
Full namepoly(A) binding protein, cytoplasmic 1
Gene summaryThis gene encodes a poly(A) binding protein. The protein shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm and binds to the 3' poly(A) tail of eukaryotic messenger RNAs via RNA-recognition motifs. The binding of this protein to poly(A) promotes ribosome recruitment and translation initiation; it is also required for poly(A) shortening which is the first step in mRNA decay. The gene is part of a small gene family including three protein-coding genes and several pseudogenes.
