Gene information for PAIP2B (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID400961
Official gene symbolPAIP2B
Full namepoly(A) binding protein interacting protein 2B
Gene summaryMost mRNAs, except for histones, contain a 3-prime poly(A) tail. Poly(A)-binding protein (PABP; see MIM 604679) enhances translation by circularizing mRNA through its interaction with the translation initiation factor EIF4G1 (MIM 600495) and the poly(A) tail. Various PABP-binding proteins regulate PABP activity, including PAIP1 (MIM 605184), a translational stimulator, and PAIP2A (MIM 605604) and PAIP2B, translational inhibitors (Derry et al., 2006 [PubMed 17381337]).[supplied by OMIM]
